Onto the 7th...

On one hand, this pregnancy is flying!  Wasn't it just yesterday I stepped into Dr. Wonderful's office for a dating ultrasound???  And yet on the other hand, still 15 weeks to go, 3 months-that's a long time!  But there's lots to be done before then!

Total weight gain/loss: I forgot to weigh myself today, but according to the scale at the appointment last week (they needed to take my vitals before doing the blood work) I am officially up 30 lbs!

Maternity clothes? Mainly stretchy skirts during the day, but also maternity bottoms (I really don't have that many) and all maternity tops.  And honestly-those are getting a little short...I see some Destination Maternity in my future, which I'm so excited about!

Sleep: I have started  getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.  It's usually 1-2 hours before my alarm goes off.  Interrupted sleep that close to needing to wake up is no good! 

Best moment this month: So happy to have gotten a good report from the doctor at last week's appointment!

Movement:TONS! And I love it!  Almost every time I start to panic, I feel something. Although I sometimes will feel things and think, what is that?!? And then I laugh, duh, it's the baby...

Exercise:Due to some busy weeks the walking has slowed down, but hopefully it will pick up again soon, although the next couple of weeks are going to be jam packed!  I just need to commit and bust out the DVD already.  I'm afraid it won't happen, but I'm committed to losing the weight, so I know that when the baby comes, I will definitely work and lose it all.  It's just frustrating because I worked so hard to get to where I was with the running, and now I'll have to start over.  And I'm not motivated to start exercising because I feel like I'm too far gone at this point.  Which is silly-it's the negative cycle: I'm upset, so I eat, and then I get upset that I eat, but I don't do anything, so I just eat more because I feel like there's no use in trying to do anything about it at this point.  There have been some really low moments with this, but I think I need to accept what it is, and I will lose it all!
Gender: We know but are keeping it a secret, the best we can anyway.  And no, we have not slipped...yet.

Labor Signs: Nope! 

Belly Button in or out? Usually the top sticks out.

What I miss:running and having self-control over my diet...must.get.better! I also would like to stop peeing my pants whenever I sneeze or cough.  But that won't go away any time soon.

What I am looking forward to:OB appointment 5/2 and follow up with the specialist on 6/7.  School is rapidly coming to an end and I recently accepted a summer job which will take me up to the week before I deliver, so it's really going to fly from here!

New Symptoms:  Unfortunately the heartburn has returned...with Moshe I had heartburn from 6 weeks, with Dovy it was early second trimester, so I made it a little further than I have in the past.  I also have some pregnancy carpal tunnel syndrome.  My pinky and ring finger on my left hand have been tingling/somewhat numb for about a week now all the time.  It's ok and doesn't keep me from doing anything, but I hope it doesn't get worse since I am left handed!  

Happy weekend all!
