Finally starting my 8th month of pregnancy. Pregnancy symptoms are intensifying and I’m getting more and more anxious to meet my precious baby girl!
And now for the belly shot:
I’m starting to notice my belly getting bigger and bigger. It’s hard to really tell while you’re going through it, especially week to week, but it’s getting heavier and rounder.
Baby Size: About the weight of a Jicama (I have no idea what this is, lol) – 4lbs, 16.7in
Movement: This girl has hiccups at least twice a day and loves to stretch out my belly.
Weight Gained: 1.5lbs
New Pregnancy Symptoms: The hives are spreading! I got some on my neck this week for no apparent reason. Luckily, it’s not too bad, but still kind of crazy.
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing new.
Sleep Changes: Still a sitting sleeper. As much as it makes my butt numb in the mornings, the benefit of waking up without pelvic pain and being able to get out of bed without a problem makes up for it.
How I’m Feeling: Stressed. My mind is all about my upcoming exam right now so I’m feeling anxious and stressed all the time. So worried!
Anything Else: I also have this fear that my belly button will pop out before this baby is due. I’m an “innie” and my belly button has never flattened or shown with my other pregnancies, but this one is indeed bigger and even though I can’t see my belly button because I’m so big now, I feel it everyday to see its progress, lol, and it just seems like it’s getting close to being flat already. Which means it might become an outie! Who knows?! Lol.
Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!
