Oh My…I am on the downhill slide! I hit the 3rd trimester today and in 91 days (give or take) Maddie will make her arrival!!
How far along: 27 weeks today!
How big is the baby: Maddie is now close to 2 1/2 lbs and about 14 1/2 in long. If you want to compare that to a veggie, she is about the size of cauliflower.
Total weight gain: Not stepping on the scale until I have to!
Sleep: That varies…sometimes I get a good stretch of sleep in and others not so much. For instance it’s 4am and I am wide awake and writing this blog post!
Maternity Clothes: Do other clothes even exist anymore? Not for me! I did score a few new shirts and the dress above while shopping the other day.
Food cravings: Watermelon continues to be a fav and add to that chicken salad!
Food aversions: No real aversions.
- Multiple bathroom trips! And all the watermelon doesn’t help!!
- Leg cramps! Though not as bad as they were there for a while.
- Hot Flashes! Or maybe that is because mother nature is having some extreme hot flashes right now!!
- Swelling! Feet are no longer allowed to hang down for an extended amount of time. The results are not pretty!
Movement: Stronger by the day! Maddie is starting to pack quite a punch and kick!!
Appointment: Next appointment is June 22nd.
