This particular week may have stretched into a month. I can hardly remember writing last weeks post! While the pregnancy seems to be zooming by, a week of deep introspection and realisation has made me a bit "off".
How far along?
32 weeks (and a bit!) he weighs nearly 4 lbs (and trust me I can feel every one of them!). Twice this week he's given me little anatomy lessons where he pushes a body part out and rolls it around so I can feel it. First it was his little bum and leg and foot, then his elbow and arm. So sweet!
Unclear. This week, I've lost 5 kilos in three days, gained 8 in two, and lost 4 the next day. I think my scale is kooky or my body. I'm going to check with the midwife about this craziness before I panic :)
Little, but enough. I'm grateful for this weekend to catch up!
Belly button in or out?
Still flat. If I pull it up to look at it, it pops out, but if I just look in the mirror there is enough flubber to keep it in/flat depending on how the kid is laying.
I didn't get to doing all the fun stuff I was hoping, although last Sunday hubby painted the nursery for me. I've emptied the closet (it used to be my study) and am just waiting for my rocking chair to arrive for the furniture to be complete.
Hubby got another big test done- and they finally figured out what has been troubling him. I am greatly thankful for the diagnosis, but there are repercussions to this illness that I am feeling a bit defeated by. For one, there will be major surgery on his stomach with long lasting ramifications. I'm scared, distrusting and unsure about how to move forward with this. Ugh. I am so sad that this sickness has stolen hubby's joy about his son. I know he is excited, but also just as much freaked out because there is so much going on at the moment.
Looking Forward to?
Another appointment tomorrow! I love hearing his heartbeat, and the extra attention :) I've really enjoyed the birthing classes and was promised a homebirth video at the next one. I'm striving for unmedicated (the only one in my class doing so) so I am very excited to watch that. :)
Wishing you a healthful week! :)
