So I don’t think I have ever talked to so many strangers in my life…I hear things everyday such as: WHOA…you are about to go!, not too much longer!, you MUST be having a BOY!, CONGRATULATIONS! …I have realized that the world is a nicer place than I had maybe thought good thing I walk fast and I look so tough…keeps the strangers away from trying to touch the belly.
How far along? 36 weeks on Sunday May 13, 2012
Weight gain/loss: +23.4
Size of baby: a watermelon…I will believe that one
Maternity clothes? indeed
Stretch marks: nope
Belly Button in or out? neutral
Sleep: when Matias has a lot on his mind he sleep “does stuff.” “does stuff” like making a fruit salad with a bunch of bananas, running around the room, crawling on the floor, looking under tables, crushing jars of jam, etc…all while asleep…I believe Daddy is starting to get nervous/anxious/excited because it has gotten pretty wild and crazy over here at night!
Food cravings: sprinkles
Food aversions: GARLIC (not a pregnancy thing)
Pregnancy Signs: really starting to feel some lower pelvic pressure…maybe baby P is getting lower
Labor Signs: braxton hicks contractions are more frequent…at least I think that is what is going on? could just be baby P pushing out really strong and hard?
Movement: lots of rumbles
Gender: BOY…and even if we had decided not to find out…that is what everyone is saying…
What I miss: Sarah. Her and Brendan went on vacation to Italy! I do hope they have a lovely time baby P was given strict orders by his Aunt Sarah not to come out yet….
What I am looking forward to: memorial weekend = moving weekend!
Best moment this week: seeing lots of swim friends for a workout on Wednesday morning! All of the pools around keep closing for maintenance so my masters group has been scattered all over. The good news is that I have TWO new pool crushes…Yorktown High School and Mount Vernon Rec…perfect temps (the most important criteria), lane space, etc…I am a bit of a pool snob
Milestones: I had my first Mother’s Day last Sunday! I had not really thought of it as a Mother’s Day until everyone started telling me Happy Mother’s Day! cool…I will take it
Weekly Wisdom: Does this baby make me look fat?!
Going the Distance: baby P has swam: 406.50 miles, biked: 1276.48 miles, walk/ran: 82.50 miles, and done: 50 hot yogs classes
