So at my last appt I had lost 1lb. Boy did I make up for it this time… I gained 7lbs!! SEVEN. Holy moly. I’m now at 150lbs. The most I’ve ever weighed in my entire life. My belly was measuring 36 weeks. Heartbeat was around 140 & Jaidan helped do the Doppler. He is SO cute about the baby. I also got my postpartum folder & have lots of info to look over along with waivers to think about and sign, birth certificate paper, labor & delivery info & the group b strep testing. I actually have the option to do the testing or not. I love all the options I get to choose for myself instead of being lined up and made to do everything everyone else does.
How I’m feeling:
Heavy. Slow. Heavy. haha. I don’t know how overweight people can stand it. I will never let myself get ‘full time fat’ because it hinders you SO much and affects everything. I mean, I know this is an actual baby & not just fat but there’s no way I could live like this. I’m craving the energy I get when I’m much smaller. Oh and the indigestion. Oh the indigestion.
I actually bought something this week! I bought prefolds cloth diapers from a baby board friend in Arizona. I bought 36 small and 24 medium green mountain diapers. I will show a picture when I get them in but they will go in the covers I have. I also bought my sports bra I will wear while in labor and for my birth pictures. Last time I just put on a ratty green sports bra (I had no idea I would have pictures of me in them) so I made sure to get a cute one this time! I got the more purple one (right). I SO love purple!
I also went through the nursery and took inventory of what we have and what we still need. Some stuff that I kept ended up getting warped or just no good anymore & then some stuff you just have to get new of anyway like bottle nipples. Here’s what we are stocked with so far…
And somebody was obsessed with the bottles. Actually only a certain bottle… with a brown nipple. lol. He was excited when I put water in it for him to drink out of. He was never even a huge fan of bottles and stopped drinking from them cold turkey at 14 months. He wouldn’t even drink my milk from a sippy, he needed it straight from the tap. There were a couple times when he was sick and Jared had to bring him up to my work so I could nurse him because he refused to drink anything. Oh my boy.
I will be showing the nursery soon. It’s not that different from with Jaidan, but I will still share anyway. It’s all put together now! Also my ‘baby sprinkle’ is this weekend so I will show the cuteness from that too! 🙂
