Happy Monday, lovelies! Can you believe that this is the last week of March? I swear each month seems to fly by faster than the last. Even though I wished for sunny weather, it rained on/off all weekend. Despite the weather, we were able to spend lots of QT with the boys doing our usual weekend activities. It was much needed after a busy week at work. And we did have some unusually nice weather on Friday, so as soon as I got home from work, we played out in the yard before dinner and bedtime. Hope you all had a lovely weekend, as well! Read below for my weekly bumpdate & our blog link up!
Like I said last week, I’m definitely feeling the pains of third baby, third trimester! I had my monthly check-up last Wednesday, which included the glucose test as well as the TDAP shot. I wasn’t looking forward to it, but I’m happy to report that I passed the test and can breathe a sigh of relief. Although, I did find out that I gained TEN (10!) pounds in the last month. Oy vey. It’s a lot of weight to gain in such a short period of time. I’m definitely going to watch the sugars and carbs that I’m eating for the rest of this last trimester. Overall, I’m up 25 lbs this pregnancy, which is pretty normal for me compared to my previous pregnancies. I gained over 40 with A and around 33 with C. I’m hoping that I can keep closer to my second pregnancy weight, just because I had such a better post partum recovery last time than the first.
I’ve been obsessed with Lularoe recently and live in leggings and tees whenever I can get away with it! As far as pregnancy symptoms, heartburn and insomnia are my constant companions. My sleeplessness at night is coupled with the discomfort of this lil’ love of mine who is a mover! He is constantly kicking and shifting and I can feel him growing. It’s a great reminder for me to enjoy all of this pregnancy, good & bad!
After my next OB appointment, I will be going in every two weeks. I STILL can’t believe that in less than 2.5 months, we will have another little baby in our house! EEEEEEEEEEEK! Breathe, mama, breathe!
