Think of this as the most interesting delurking project you'll ever participate in. After giving back to others at the Celebratory Society, I have decided to participate in it myself. You can understand the project in full by clicking here, but in brief, the Celebratory Society is an online festschrift for a blogger--a way for you to tell me what my blog or actions mean to you. But this isn't about me--this is about you too. And I would love it if you returned to your own blog, started your own Celebratory Society post, added it to the main project list, and gave me the opportunity to tell you about...you. Here is my link to the project:
Celebratory Society Post
*Sorry for the slightly odd layout. I had an argument with my laptop, LOL.
How far along: 28 weeks 0 days. Cricket is the size of a head of cauliflower! Approximately 16 inches, 2.5-2.8 lbs. Cricket is dreaming these days :) I hope hers are better than mine!
Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs - at 143.8 this morning.
Maternity clothes: Some of the shorter shirts are too short now! I sort of exploded again this week.
Sleep: I go to bed around 10:30 and stay there until 9-ish. HOWEVER. I am up every 1.5-2 hours to pee, get over a nightmare, and wipe the sweat off.
Movement: We seem to have moved into a 2 hour pattern. 2 hours awake, 2 hours asleep. And the movements are less Jiffy Pop and more Alien. It's fun to watch :)
27 weeks 2 days
Cravings/Aversions: Cravings: Seafood. Jello. Aversions: Red meat.
Sex: I'm no longer allowed...Cricket is still a secret!
Symptoms: Heartburn and acid reflux have kicked in with a VENGEANCE. I threw up Tums this morning. Who does that? LOL. Attributed to the procardia: uber vivid dreams, night sweats, pounding heart, fatigue. Also a rather constant pressure in my lower abdomen...worse near med time.
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly. As getting cozy gets more difficult, I miss that option more and more. Sex.
What I look forward to: Ultrasound on Monday. Belly button poppage (it's getting quite shallow!)
Moods: Bored...is that a mood?
28 weeks even
Milestones: I will consider any week without the hospital a milestone, LOL.
Medical Concerns: Hypothyroid, anxiety, migraines, bursitis, preterm labor, funneling cervix. Ready for the list? Syn.throid 50 mcg, Zo.loft 100 mg, Iron, D3, D2, B12, Vitamin C, Folic acid, stool softeners. Flexeril a bit longer, Tylenol 3 for the migraines, Procardia for preterm labor .
Weekly Wisdom: It's okay to ask for help.
Best moment this week: We got the baby shower invite today! They are sooooo cute!
Worst moment this week: Realizing how limited I am right now. I am actually hoping to be able to go back to work...and I despise my job.
