Hey there friends!
So, I’m not going to lie, last week was a rough one. For the majority of the week, I just felt off. The exhaustion returned, which made my work days even longer and hard to get through. Focusing on work was no easy task. Bottom line, there were many times when I wanted to lie down in the worst way, which is pretty difficult when you’re at the office. Also, my stomach was off after I ate and I had a few waves of nausea (like I felt pretty close to vomiting, but never actually did). My body (specifically my back) was feeling pretty achy and stiff, so lots of stretching definitely helped. And the babies must have been up sitting higher, which resulted in making it a bit more uncomfortable to breath – it wasn’t as though I was out of breath, but my lungs definitely felt more restricted than normal. It was definitely quite the interesting week to say the least!
Gosh, listing all these symptoms makes it sound like I’m complaining, but I promise you I’m really not. I’m just trying to keep it real on EGBG, and despite feeling crappy sometimes, I know by body is working overtime and the end result will all be worth it! And so far, this week is off to a much better start! :-)
Maternity clothes? Nope, with my purchases from last weekend, I’m pretty much set for now.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep? I had some nights where I slept pretty good and other nights where I was tossing and turning because I couldn’t get comfortable.
Best moment this week? Deciding on a paint color for the nursery (I’ll give your more details at a later date)!
Miss anything? Just the usual – sushi, cold cuts and my usual workout routine.
Movement? There were a few times when I felt some bubbles in my lower abdomen (kind of like gas pains). It only lasted for a moment or two and it was not consistent. I’m pretty sure it was the babies, but I’m hoping to start feeling bigger, more obvious movements soon.
Food Cravings? Nothing at all.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No!
Gender? We find out this coming Monday!
Labor Signs? No.
Symptoms? Guess I already talked about my symptoms above, so there’s no need to repeat them again.
Belly Button – in or out? In.
Wedding Rings – on or off? On.
Happy or Moody? Happy!
Looking Forward To? Getting the nursey painted this week and meeting with a local restaurant to discuss more details about the baby shower!
Mamas and pregnant mamas to be, how did you get through those rough weeks of your pregnancy?
