How big is Baby? Baby Boy is about 18.5 inches long and weighs about 6 pounds. Time for baby boy to start plumping up a bit. I cannot believe his birth is just around the corner!
Stretch marks? No stretch marks yet! My belly is soooo big at this point, if I was going to get stretch marks I think they would have already presented themselves.
Sleep: Sleep is going ok. Of course I am still waking up constantly to use the restroom. That random shuffle to the restroom has become more difficult as my feet hurt really bad at night.
Best moment in the last week: I am currently in the process of relocating my office! Our furniture was moved to the new office today, my phones officially work, and my computers will be set up on Monday. Yay!
Miss Anything? How about wearing a size 6.5/7 shoe! I am apparently one of the unlucky women who's feet grow during pregnancy. I am currently wearing a size 7.5/8... How does this happen? Well, apparently my foot ligaments have relaxed due to the relaxin hormone running through my body. Plus my added body weight from the pregnancy could have caused my arches to lower... lucky me!
Movement: This little guy moves around all the time! It is fun when people feel his movement for the first time.
Food cravings: Ice Cream and Pickled Okra are the top two items... although recently ice cream has been too rich for me. Frozen pineapple is the go to sweet.
*I will add that I don't eat the two things together at the same time
Indigestion, acid reflux, and heartburn.
My feet ache like I ran a half marathon constantly.
My lower back has started to hurt every once in a while.
Have you started to show yet: What a silly question at this point? Especially with it being summer. No hiding this big bump.
Gender prediction:BOY, BOY, BOOOOOYYYYY!!!! Baby Hartkop is a BOY! *Read gender reveal here. :)
Labor Signs: Labor signs are against the rules until after August 5th. Baby and my body had better behave! After August 5th this baby had better start making his move, I don't like the idea of delivery being too far after the 10th... although, I am sure he will be as stubborn as his parents and arrive when is good and ready even if it is after the 10th.
Belly Button in or out? My belly button is mostly flat with a little bit starting to poke out!
Happy or Moody: For the most part I am happy. Emotions tip towards tears pretty easy these days.
Looking forward to: Getting all my maternity leave paperwork in order.
