Christmas 2015 started off just like any other Christmas- coffee and breakfast with the husband in front of the tree. It's crazy to think that this is our last Christmas just the two of us and that next year we'll have an almost one year old! :O
Christmas gift from the baby
We spent a few days with the family and then headed to the snow for a few days with friends. I can count on two hands the number of times I've been to the snow (shocking, I know!), so even though there wasn't a lot of snow, it was still fun! Finding clothes to wear in the snow was pretty comical. I wasn't going to buy maternity snow gear that I'd only use for a couple days, so I just put on as many layers and I could and topped it off with one of my hubby's jackets. Movement was limited, but it worked!
It was so nice to be off the grid with no internet/cell reception and just relax in the quiet; something I know will be of short supply once the baby comes.
How far along? 32 Weeks
Total weight gain: 16 lbs
Exercise: Still keeping up with prenatal yoga and the elliptical, averaging 5 workouts/week
Stretch marks: None yet!
Maternity clothes: All the time.
Belly button in or out? Still mostly in, but it's trying to poke out. Wedding rings on or off? On, but getting snug.
Sleep: Sleep isn't the best. I still get up a few times a night to pee.
Food cravings: Ice cream, pie, and all the holiday cookies! I was also seriously craving a glass of wine to go with Christmas dinner. :(
Symptoms: Just the usual- regular tasks are harder to do; scrubbing the shower is now considered a major workout. Space for my stomach is running out, which was terrible timing for the holidays! I've also had this not so awesome pain in my pelvis/hip joint. The pain used to be pretty minor in the morning when I woke up, but it's started to get increasingly worse. It's most likely symphysis pubis dysfunction, caused from the ligaments loosening and the joints becoming more lax.
Movement: Baby was super wiggly throughout the holiday weekend, no doubt caused by all the sweets I was eating. :)
