Maternity Clothes: Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Though I’m still gaining weight, it’s slowed and my fundal height measurement hasn’t changed since 27 weeks. The maternity pants I wore during my last pregnancy are too big so I’ve been wearing pants I wore BEFORE my first pregnancy. I wearing a combination of maternity shirts and regular shirts that I’m stretching out and thus ruining.
Body Oddities: Just sore.
Sleep: I had to stop sleeping on my stomach during the last month. Lying on my side isn’t terrible comfortable and I have a hard time sleeping on my back. Also, Adam had a stretch of waking up several times a night in a panic after an ill-fated attempt to get him to fall asleep without us holding his hand.
Best Moment This Month: Lots of wiggling and the ability to tell what’s a hand and what’s a foot.
Worst Moment This Month: Finding out that my fundal height hasn’t changed since 27 weeks (when it was 27 cm). I’m having an ultrasound tomorrow to check the size of the baby.
Movement: Said wiggling. And turn. And thumping.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Nothing related to the pregnancy. I have no excuses for eating so much chocolate.
Rings: I was retaining so much water during our “heat wave” that I took my wedding ring off. I could probably put it back on but I have occasional puffiness.
Gender: I’m sure it’s a boy.
Intense Dreams: With Adam’s frequent waking and our annoying cat, again, I’m not sleeping in long enough stretches to dream.
Medical Concerns: Worried about not growing very much. We’ll see what the ultrasound brings.
What I Miss: Being comfortable and being able to move around without so much effort.
What I Look Forward To: Despite the obvious concern, it’s nice to have an ultrasound this late in the pregnancy.
Emotional State: OK. I’ll feel better after tomorrow. I hope.
