Oh hey there! Long time, no blog. Sorry about my disappearing act; that was not my intention at all. I took my computer to Mexico, but didn’t even turn it on one time. I did Instagram a couple of photos, and that’s about it. I shall have plenty of photos and posts coming recapping our wonderful trip and my brother’s wedding, but for now let’s get started with my 29 weeks pregnant bumpdate post:
Baby Itz: 29 Weeks
Baby’s size? Butternut squash.
Maternity clothes? Loving them, as always! Though I did buy a new bikini (not maternity) in a larger size for our trip and totally rocked my belly bump! Pictures to come.
Stretch marks? Nope, but I am starting to get that very faint dark line underneath my belly button (the linea nigra). Itz funny because when my mom saw it she told me she had it with both of her boys, but not with either of us girls. My sister Stephanie said she had it with Audrey, but not Jacob (both of her pregnancies were very mixed up according to all the old wives tales!). Funny how that works!
Sleep: Sleep has been terrible lately, but mostly due to me being sick, not pregnancy. Though the frequent pee breaks are definitely from Baby Itz sittin’ pretty on my bladder. My sleep lately has been interrupted by nose blows and coughs. Blah.
Best moment this week: Seeing my brother Jason get married in Puerto Vallarta!!!
Miss anything? Not feeling sick. Sorry that’s the theme of this post.
Movement: Baby Itz is totally swimming around in there. He seemed to really love Mexico and the sun as he was super active the whole time. Lots of people did plenty of belly rubbing including several Mexican employees at the resort who proved to be the first strangers to rub my bump. Oddly enough, it actually didn’t bother me. Maybe because they were just so happy and jovial about it, and it seemed like it was more part of their culture. They were very hands on with the kiddos, too, always patting their heads and whatnot. Lots of love!
Food Cravings: No cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing specific, though Thursday evening (the night before we left – great timing), I got really sick for about an hour and then it passed and I felt better. It was very strange. My friend at school who is six weeks ahead of me texted me in the morning saying she was sick (unbeknown to her that I had gotten sick, as well). We always joke that we are “pregnancy twins” because our pregnancies have been very similar (and very easy), so it was even stranger that we were both ill Thursday night. Come to find out, TEN people from school called in sick on Friday morning. Some nasty short-lived stomach bug went around, and nasty it was! I think that hit my immune system hard because I felt fine the following two days, but then got sick again starting on Sunday and it hasn’t left me yet. Thankfully itz not in my stomach anymore, just in my head and chest.
Gender: BOY BOY BOY!!!!
Labor Signs: None, not that I would know what those feel like anyway!
Symptoms: You really want me to list? Burning chest, sore throat, runny eyes, runny nose, severe coughing, fever, back pain, and overall feeling like garbage. I actually had to take a sick day yesterday when I was supposed to go back to work due to my fever. I believe my fever is gone, but some of the other symptoms are still there. Back discomfort is worsened due to the fact that I can’t workout being sick, and I’ve been saying from the beginning that my back is always worse when I don’t move a lot.
Belly Button – in or out? In, but itz getting suuuper close to popping out. I can actually stick it out if I push my belly out far enough haha.
Wedding Rings – on or off? On!
Happy or Moody? Not moody, but not happy I’ve been so sick! Wah!
Looking Forward To: Getting over this sickness! Have you had enough sickness talk yet? Ugh, sorry. I’m over it, too.
Have you been sick this winter? I feel like everyone has been sick at some point this year! Ugh, and if not – kudos to you! Stay healthy!
