I know that due dates are really just estimates. They aren't exact, the baby could come at any time.
I am a planner. I like to have everything planned out weeks and months before hand so that when the day comes I'm not stressing.
I am stressing.
Today I went to my doctor appointment and she was saying that I am 24 weeks and a couple days. According to my due date that we had set at my first appointment I should only be 23 weeks and 1 day. Did it change when we had my ultrasound and they just forgot to tell me? At my very first appointment, I had an ultrasound and they moved my due date from December 7th to December 15th because Elouise was measuring small. I knew this wouldn't last because I am destined to have big babies. Jonathan was 9 pounds 6 oz, I was 10 pounds 6 oz, Hazel (my first baby) was 9 pounds 4 oz. So I knew Elouise measuring "small" wasn't right. So I guess my due date is now December 7th (again) and that I am 24 weeks and 2 days.
Then she measured my belly and my belly is measuring 25 weeks. Who knows when I'm going to have this baby? I will be ready December 1st.
Let's move on to the Bump Date since I didn't update last week. Hazel started preschool and I started "work" so it was a crazy week! I'll post about preschool later this week. She's doing great!
How far along?: Who knows? 23-25 weeks! haha! I'm going to stay 24 weeks and 2 days (if my due date is December 7th).
Size of baby?: Egg-plant. 9 inches and 1.7 pounds! Wow little baby!! Almost 2 pounds!! :) Seems so big!
Sleep?: Sleep is amazing. I can't get enough. I am tired a lot. I usually get up to pee once a night but other than that I sleep great.
Best moment of this week?: Feeling her kick is something I will never get used to. It's so amazing. I love it! Jonathan feels her a lot and I can actually SEE when she kicks my stomach.
Miss anything?: Nope.
Movement?: Yes! She is very active!
Food cravings?: Nothing really. Not as strong as in the beginning. I guess I would say red meat. I can't get enough!
Morning sickness?: Nope.
Gender?: Little precious girl :)
Bed Rest?: No
Limitations?: Nothing really. Bending over is hard.
Pregnancy Symptoms?: My right hip is really hurting by the end of the day. My doctor said it was the ligaments stretching to get ready for delivery and just to be care if I'm lifting Hazel or anything heavy and I don't need to lift anything too heavy because it might pop my hip out of place but she said it was normal and to just put a pillow between my legs when I sleep (which I already do) to alleviate the pressure. Still so hairy and I have a little bit of acne but nothing unbearable.
Wedding rings?: Still on and loose.
Looking forward to?: The fall! All the cold weather, pumpkin flavored everything, windows open, lower electricity bill, and all the holidays! I can't wait!
Weight Gain?: 13.4 pounds. Up 3 pounds since last appt (4 weeks ago). It is normal to gain 1 pound per week till the end so I am feeling good about that number! I have around 16 more weeks so if I average 1 pound per week till I'm done my total weight gain will be 29.4 pounds and that would be amazing!
This is a comparison of 14 weeks and 23 weeks
