Goodness. Things are getting busy around here!
I have opened up my book blog:
We’re Jumpin’ Books
We are starting to move! Yes that is right, TODAY! We just found out yesterday.
I started going to the Doctor once a week. Already got my labor instructions.
March 8th – Group B testing
March 9th – Baby Shower
March 16th – Maternity Shoot
March 21st – Sibling Class at our local hospital for Jade
March 31st – Easter
On top of that we have to paint the nursery, decorate, and unpack, all while being 8 months pregnant and having a 5 year-old. Today I already took a nap, it is so much to think about, and so much to do in the next four weeks, maybe if I sleep long enough it will all happen quickly, right? 😉 I do have to say that this pregnancy has been enjoyable. I didn’t know it could be so “easy”, with Jade I was sick during the whole time, heartburn, acid reflux, pains, and I really think when I was pregnant with her I was dealing with Gallbladder issues, because it was all the same symptoms that I went through with gallstones. I would have to sleep sitting up with her, and I couldn’t eat anything, even salads made me sick. So, with that being said with this pregnancy I can eat anything I want, I don’t have heartburn but I do get acid reflux but not as bad. I have normal pains of any pregnancy.
Braxton Hicks Contractions all the time! I didn’t have them with Jade. I get them during Zumba, if I bend over, going up and down the driveway (if I am in passenger seat – we live on a bumpy road right now), walking, basically I get them a lot if I am not sitting down. Yes, I drink enough fluids.
Okay, enough of all that.
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds nd has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a a cone head-like appearance.) These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
I think my cravings are easing off, or at least I hope so.
Fatigue is back
Fibroid pain – lower right side
Period like cramps on left side
Drainage (I know TMI)
Braxton Hicks Contractions
Weight: 203lbs – 23lbs total
Grayson’s Heartbeat: 150
Still got to pack the hospital bag! Goodness me. So much to do, got to get busy!
I have my One Month to Love on a schedule, I don’t know if I will be able to finish the updates though, I think it stops at Day 17, not sure though, but once everything slows back down I will update it. Don’t forget to check out We’re Jumpin’ Books!
