TWO WEEKS! Two. Friggin'. Weeks. Wow. Time has flown by. But I do have to admit that I don't even feel like my body is progressing. Sure, I get the pressure underneath my stomach from the baby obviously moving downward (proven today at my doctor), but I am not dilated. At all. Not even 1/2 cm. Nada. Zip.
I mentioned today at my doctor that my mother is coming to Germany for the birth and that I'd like for the baby to be ON-TIME, or early. The mid-wife kinda laughed, though she agreed that me taking my dog on daily walks is perfectly okay and should help progress it. I asked if going up and down the stairs in my house would help, and she said yes, but everyone is different. So it's basically a waiting game, though I really feel like I'm going to go over my due-date simply because I don't feel anything out of the norm. lol
My weekly photo update:
And, just for shits and giggles:
Symptoms: Annoying back pain and his foot in my ribs. Both make for getting comfortable on the couch/sitting at the table/anywhere else VERY hard.
Weight Gain: Today the scale said 85.3 kg (188 lbs). This puts me at +11.3 kg (24.9 lbs) since the beginning of my pregnancy, and +0.3 kg (0.66 lbs) since last week.
Cravings: Salad, like always. And I had a wicked craving for pickles two nights ago. hahaha. But Husband had the same craving. It was weird, but we both wanted them, so we bought some. :)
Food Aversions: Nothing that I didn't like before I was pregnant.
What made me cry this week: I think the only time tears came out of my eyes during the last week was either when there was too much wind/snow in my face OR when Husband was attempting to wrestle with me, and was tickling me in the process.
FYI - Tickle a pregnant woman's feet and YOU SHALL DIE!
Medical Stuff: (TMI...) Just a pesky yeast infection that won't go away.. Other than that, everything is A-OKAY.
Something I am excited about: 13 days until my mother is here! Regardless of whether Pea Baby decides to come out early/on time/late, I know my mother WILL be here on February 22! :))
