Total weight gain: My last appointment was 15 pounds but I know the baby has hit a growth spurt since then, so I’m not sure!
Sleep: Because my lower stomach keeps cramping when I roll over, I decided to sleep with a pillow between my legs and under my belly. That lasted all of three nights. Then the pillow was on my nerves. Other than that though I’m still sleeping pretty well. I’ve also noticed that the baby is more active when I’m more active, so as I’m falling asleep at night he starts to calm down too, which is pretty cool 🙂
Movement: Very active, which I LOVE! I know I’ll miss this when I’m no longer pregnant. I really love holding my hands on my stomach and just feeling him move. It’s the best feeling!
What else happened this week: We took maternity pictures and I’m SO excited to see how they came out! We also took a prepared childbirth class which walked us through all the stages of labor, what happens immediately afterwards, what happens if we have a c-section, all kinds of stuff. It was really interesting and helpful.
And this is the hubs’ point of view, which I also find pretty cute:
So at this point, the baby and I have been 503 miles 🙂
