The midwives and ultrasound results would like to move my due date up a few days but I’m sitting strong with the date of April 12: I know my cycle and I know the date of my last period. And possibly because I’m stubborn and like even numbers. So keeping along with that due date that puts me at twenty-one weeks as of yesterday!
Here are a few updates and changes that are happening as of late:
How far along are you? Wrapping up month 5 of pregnancy
How I’m feeling: 92% like myself, 8% pregnant
Total weight gain: Somewhere between 10-14lbs
How big is baby? 15oz, she’s almost a pound.
Maternity clothes: My angel of a sister-in-law just hooked me up with so many pregnancy tops over Thanksgiving break. It was like Christmas x a billion. I just need an amazing pair of maternity skinny jeans or two, and for my new bra to get in to Nordstrom one of these days. Or, I’ll just keep living in leggings for the next 19 weeks.
Sleep: ing like a baby! A solid 8 or 9 hours at night and I’m good to go.
Movement: is now constant in the evenings and as I fall asleep. It hasn’t been strong enough for Landon to feel yet though.
Best moment this week: Landon and I got a sitter for Paityn after work one evening and headed off to the gym to try a new workout program that had piqued my interest. 30 minutes later and I was squatting more than twice what I had thought I was capable of the week or so before. I wish we could workout together all the time, especially when pregnant, to help make sure I’m not cutting myself short. But these every so often gym dates together? I’ll take em.
