Size of Oliver: between 5 and 6 pounds and around 18 inches
Weight Gain: 24 lbs. I'm definitely racking the pounds up here in the end!
Movement and Placement: Head Down and kicking mommy in the diaphragm on a regular basis.
Pregnancy Symptoms: I am still having acid reflux. It has gotten better since I started taking Tums... when I remember to take the Tums! Other than that, things seem to be easing up a bit. My side and stomach muscles are pretty sore and some slight stretch marks are beginning to make an appearance :(
Sleep: At least I can report that some of us are sleeping well in this house...
Cravings: I find myself craving things once I see them rather than out of thin air. I saw a sign for Chick-Fil-A on Monday and just had to stop and get their chicken salad! I did have a craving for Orange Sherbet this week and it was wonderful to satisfy it.
Aversions: Meat and Vegetables
Workouts: Lots of walking! With my mom in town, we took 2 or 3 walks a day. I didn't renew my gym membership since we are moving. It has been frustrating not having a gym to workout in, but I figure for a few weeks it won't kill me. I tried to use the workout room at school before classes one morning but it stunk so bad in there I couldn't handle it!
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new to report. It wouldn't kill me to have a few maternity tank tops or short sleeved shirts, but I refuse to buy more maternity clothes this close to the end! Here are a few random pictures from the week.
Baby Products: We haven't made any big purchases lately. I have been grabbing a few little things like rags, socks, and white onesies that will come in handy.
Favorite Moment of the Week: I got to have my mom here for a whole week!! It was amazing! She worked miracles with helping me pack up the house and my classroom. My favorite moments were seeing all of the boxes ready for the moving truck, and trying to eat Chick-Fil-A in the car with the bump in the way! Definitely a challenging experience!
