Baby’s size: 2.47 oz and 3.98 inches. For visual learners….bed bug is the size of an eclair. Fun fact, eclair means “flash of lightning” because that’s how fast they seem to get eaten. Haha how funny is that?!?!
Sleep: I’m back to the weird insomnia I’ve had. It’s very strange to have this so early. Usually around 30 weeks this begins due to the body prepping for sleepless nights with a newborn but I’ve had it since I got pregnant which is just weird. Really I think that by baby number 4 my body should just be downright used to sleepless nights so really does need any “prep” for such things but I don’t call the shots here. I’m hoping that this will pass as I find it very difficult to function on such a strange sleep pattern.
Best moment this week: We got to go to our local amusement park, for only the second time this year, and it was nice to catch up with friends and get out of the house. It was crowded and hot but still nice.
Worst moment this week: Lack of sleep, as mentioned above, and the older two seem to be on an attitude high at the moment so temper tantrums and meltdowns have been a nightly thing. Yes, you would think a 9 and 7 year old wouldn’t do the temper tantrum thing anymore but not true in our house. I just keep reminding myself, this too shall pass.
Movement: Not as much this week. I’ve been really busy and on my feet so I’m not surprised. I think I only felt him/her once.
Cravings: Nothing real specific. I craved gummy bears and those are now gone…..some preggo chick must have consumed all of those. Boo. Other than that I’ve really just been wanting sandwiches or salad. I know…weird.
Missing Anything: A good nights sleep.
Queasy or sick: I had more stomach aches this week. Mostly in the morning. I’m starting to think coffee is throwing me for a loop again which if so I’m going to be so disappointed. It’s been nice having my coffee back. Ugh, say it isn’t so!!
Looking forward to: Mason’s birthday party is Saturday and then his actual bday is this time next week. I can’t believe he will be 7!!! I remember being pregnant with him like it was last week. Crazy how much has changed in his short little lifetime.
Time is literally flying by with this pregnancy and I have so much to do!!! Better get started!
