So far Ive gained about 16lbs. Thats about 1/2 of what I gained with Reese so far... I gained almost 50 with her! Yikes!
The baby this week is the size of a butternut squash & is approx 17 inches long & weighs a little over 3lbs now. She's moving like crazy! Reese got to feel her kick yesterday. She usually doesnt keep her hand on my belly long enough to feel anything, but she finally did :)
At my last dr appt I had my glucose test, which I passed, but I also found out I was anemic. Now I have to take medicine for that, which is really kind of a pain. You're supposed to take it in the morning on an empty stomach, one hour before, or two hours after a meal. Well when an 8 month pregnant lady is hungry, she's hungry & baby dont like to wait for a meal!
So between the braxton hicks I've been having & being anemic I need to be winding down on the house cleaning. So I've got a couple more weeks left & Ill be staying home full time again. I got rid of the booth I was renting at the antique mall, I wont have time to keep up with that for awhile. Reese is really going to miss being around the other kids at daycare, but she can get into a program at our church when she's 3, so she'll have to be home with me for a year. She's going to be a great big sister & helper though, I just know it :)
We are getting maternity pictures taken this weekend, so let's hope those turn out! Our photographer does a great job, it'll be if little miss Reese cooperates.. She doesnt like the camera on her :(
I still havent had much for cravings.... heartburn like crazy though! I've gotten to the uncomfortable part of pregnancy when it comes to sleep. I have to get up & potty about every 2-3 hours. I sleep with about 4 pillows & about the time I get comfy its time to get up & potty again.
I'll get another sonogram at 36 weeks, I'm anxiously waiting for that! Can't wait to see her little face again! Im curious to see how much her & Reese look alike. I know they'll both have blonde hair & blue eyes, Reese was born with dark hair, but it all fell out & came back blonde. Im just so excited & so blessed to be having another baby! I know somedays are rougher than others, but it is SO worth it in the end :)
Thanks as always...
