HOW FAR ALONG: 35 weeks
BABY: I joke that he should have been on the show Prison Break. His movements are so wild these days- he's probably plotting his escape! The baby weighs approximately 5.25 lbs and is 18 inches long (about the size of a honeydew melon). Braxton Hicks have also been in full swing too!
TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN/ LOSS: 16 lbs. Morning sickness and a bout of gastroenteritis have made gaining the recommended amount of weight difficult. However; as I'll explain later, I am on a new medication to help me feel better and hopefully gain some weight.
MATERNITY: Same. And to be honest, I wear sweatpants a lot. Comfort is the name of the game at this point.
BELLY BUTTON: Outtie
OBSESSING OVER: Decorating the nursery. [I'm going to wait until the spring to do the nursery reveal. Since my oldest is still sleeping in the crib, the nursery won't be done until Dylan graduates into a toddler bed and Baby Erb transitions from the bassinet to the crib]. I've begun shopping a bit for the baby which is fun! It's also a little surreal and overwhelming to know that in a few weeks I'll have two under two. Wish me luck!
SLEEP: Most nights I am up until the wee hours of the morning with morning sickness. For a good six weeks, I've been averaging 4 hours a night. Yawn
CRAVINGS/ AVERSIONS: I haven't had cravings, but I absolutely cannot drink hot coffee these days. I had an iced coffee yesterday and that was heavenly. Decaf latés are fine too. Go figure!
MORNING SICKNESS: It's been horrible until a few days ago when my doctor prescribed me a stronger heartburn medication. This has been an absolute game changer. I think acid reflux has been the number one contributor to my nausea, and I've now gone almost two days without getting sick! Woo ho!
I think this will be my last pregnancy update until I have the baby as I am scheduled for a c-section in 3.5 weeks!
Thank you so much for your support during this pregnancy! xox
