Finally a week of feeling a bit more normal! This update will be much more positive than the last few :)
How far along?
27 weeks! Next week I start the third trimester and climb on the home stretch to meeting my little boy. He's getting really big now, if he were measuring average, he would be over 15 inches long. But our little guy measures a full week and a half bigger than average, so I expect him to be a bit taller than that! Geez!
9 pounds. No more fluctuation this week- it looks like I'm creeping up on the 10 pound mark. I forgot to share what my midwife said about weight gain last week: she is very impressed by my little weight gain, but says that she will not weigh me until the day I birth (and only for if they need to give me medication/a c-section) because weight gain is no big deal. Woo! I'm not saying that it's a free for all because no one is looking over my shoulder, but just that I'm doing the very best I can and that it's all going to be okay. As long as I stay under 300 pounds (BMI of 40), I am a-okay to continue with my natural birth. I'm not limited by my weight at all! *celebrate*
Better the last few days thanks to some herbal remedies from the midwife. With more magnesium to minimise leg cramps, and some rescue remedy to help with the anxiety, I'm resting SO much better.
Best moment this week
My three siblings have all felt the little guy kick. And my mom came up to me today to ask if she can feel my belly. It was so sweet, and I appreciate her respect to ask before grabbing me. I love my mom!
It was a good week. The first half was awful, but once I got the homeopathic remedies, I became more like myself. Woo.
Looking Forward to?
I'm just trying to enjoy right now. It's the only time I will ever assist God in a miracle and its going so darn fast. I'm going to slow down, and appreciate.
Thanks for always supporting me you guys!
