Half way through the eight month mark! Woohoo!
And now for the belly shot:
I can really start to tell how round I’m getting, and bigger. Sure, I haven’t really seen my feet (while standing) and my bajingo in months, but now I’m noticing it more.
Baby Size: About the size of a Cantaloupe Melon – 4.75lbs, 18in.
Movement: This girl just loves sticking her butt out on my right side. There’s also plenty of movement still. Trying to enjoy it while it lasts.
Weight Gained: 2lbs
New Pregnancy Symptoms: The itching is driving me insane! My belly has been fairly behaved until now. My right side has been itching like crazy and I can tell there are new or bigger stretch marks creeping up on me. Sigh.
Sleep Changes: After being able to lay down sleeping for the past week, I can safely say that I can sleep on my left side and still wake up without any aches and pains. Hooray! Unfortunately, I can’t sleep on my right side. Sometimes I can lean back and lay half on my left side and half on my back for a little bit, but otherwise, it’s all left side, baby! I’ll take it!
How I’m Feeling: Anxious. Today is Exam Day for me so while you’re reading this, I’m getting my butt kicked at the testing center. Besides that, I’m also excited to finally be able to start getting ready for the baby and getting back to regular life.
Anything Else:Just chugging along.
Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!
