How far along? 31 weeks 4 days
Weight Gain: 21 lbs. I haven’t gained any weight since changing my diet for gestational diabetes. I guess it shows what carb counting and avoiding sugar will do.
Movement: Two nights ago it felt like Baby B (on my left side) was trying to flip, but didn’t have enough room to pull it off. It definitely wasn’t a pleasant feeling. Baby B moves a lot more than A right now.
Symptoms: Strong Braxton Hicks, and another kidney stone. Exhaustion has kicked in, and I struggle walking due to the pressure in my pelvis.
Food cravings: I still want Banana cake…
Best moment this week: I had to make a short trip to the grocery store for the Sno Shack, and I was literally exhausted and having contractions by the time I checked out. I struggled getting out to the car and putting Ledger into his car seat. When I stood up I noticed my cart was gone. A nice old man silently took my cart back for me. With double the hormones pumping through my pregnant body I may have shed a tear or two.
Baby Update: Taking it easy has paid off, my cervix hasn’t shortened any more since last visit. Yay! Baby A is measuring 4 lbs 1 oz, Baby B is measuring 4 lbs 4 oz, which puts them both in the 60th something percentile. Both babies are head down. Dr. said things are looking great, but I’m still supposed to take it easy. We discussed what to do if I should go into labor, and after 34 weeks it’s much safer to deliver because the babies lungs will be developed. Only 39 days until I reach 37 weeks :)
