How big is baby: comparable to a grapefruit, approx. 10.5-11.8 inches, 12.7-20.8 ounces
What have you been up to:crocheting + crafting. Planning my friend Lindsey's baby shower.
Maternity clothes: Mostly yes. I have a few pre pregnancy items I can still wear, but I did just get a bunch more maternity to borrow which has been nice.
Milestones: I've been getting a lot of comments on how pregnant I look. Best Moment:Talking with the boys about her arrival. We read the cutest book I snagged at the library called "Baby on the Way" by Dr. William Sears.
Worst Moment: Getting frustrated with the boys ganging up on me and not listening. Mondays are always the hardest.
Food cravings: egg salad, soups, bread.
Food aversions: none recently.
Symptoms: Some shortness of breath. My hip/back are way out of whack and I was denied chiropractic by my insurance. I get to try physical therapy next week. I also randomly developed a blotchy red rash on my face, my primary physician thinks it's contact dermatitis but I have no idea what I could be reacting to.
Movement:she moves quite regularly, I can't wait for Kai + Des to be able to feel and see it!
What I’m looking forward to: my sister's graduation tomorrow (she's getting her Masters!), getting our new dining set delivered (also tomorrow), and relaxing for Mother's Day this Sunday. Oh and my sister-in-law's shower the following weekend.
What I’m nervous about/praying for: getting denied physical therapy. I just need to be able to function but often my back pain makes it very difficult to even move. I'm praying that I can get covered to go to PT and that it brings relief so I can feel normal again and not be so needy.
What I miss: having enough strength and energy to do day to day tasks and play with my kiddos. Next appointment: next week I'll see the physical therapist and my OB back to back.
