Size of Baby: Head of Cauliflower (17 in., 2.9 lbs)
Weight Gain: +1.5. Â I guess this is okay. Â It could be water weight from the Chinese food I ate last night.
How Iâ€™m Feeling: Emotional! Â I donâ€™t know what has come over me the past few weeks (oh yeah, hormones), but I feel irritable and sad at the littlest things. Â Iâ€™m very touchy, which is hard on a relationship, but weâ€™re doing okay. Â The last few days of the week were fine. Â I really want to feel back to myself though!! Â I have so much to be happy for and yet, I seem to dwell on the negative things in my life.
I also had horrible round ligament pains this week. Â Iâ€™m attributing it to weight lifting (Iâ€™m thinking lunges). Â One day they lasted almost the entire day and I was massively uncomfortable. Â Iâ€™m thinking that maybe I had a big growth spurt this week. Â Maybe the extra weight gain, the emotions and round ligament pains on steroids all equal this! Â Letâ€™s hope.
Other than that, heartburn is the same. Â My back pain is gone! Â Hurrah.
Doctorâ€™s Appointment: Â I have my gestational diabetes test the first day of next week.
What Iâ€™m Eating: Â Iâ€™m trying to monitor the sugar intake slightly due to the diabetes test next week. Â Other than that, the same. Â No cravings or aversions. Â Actually, chocolate has been calling my name. Â I think the holiday season has something to do with that though… there are goodies on every website, in every store and everywhere I look!!
Exercise: Due to the round ligament pain, I stopped lifting weights towards the end of the week. Â I have still been walking 3 miles nearly every day. Â I lifted weights on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week. Â Iâ€™m not sure what Iâ€™m going to do about that because I really like it, but those pains are not okay! Â I ordered a maternity belt, so maybe thatâ€™ll help.
Our HOA does several events throughout the year and on Saturday, they did a horse-drawn carriage ride through the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. Â They had hot chocolate and cookies, which obviously I was all over:) (The picture is extremely dark below).
Other than that, a pretty uneventful week.
