pregnancy: month six.





DUE DATE:  june 22, 2017
WEEKS:  22 - 26
TRIMESTER:  second
GENDER:  boy!



SYMPTOMS:


is a growing belly considered a symptom? hahahaha. kidding. i can no longer fit into any pre-pregnancy shirts. it's getting a little harder to bend down to pick things up. and let's not discuss the difficulty i have when trying stand up after i've been sitting on the floor.

this has nothing to do with pregnancy, but i caught a nasty cold around week 23. i was so miserable because i'm limited to benadryl and tylenol. it was one of the worst colds i've had. i also developed allergies apparently? i'm finally starting to kick them, but the past week was very snotty + sneezy.



CRAVINGS:

-  give me all the ice cream in the world.
-  chick-fil-a. i don't feel guilty in the least because they are the Lord's calories.
-  orange juice.
cheerios medley crunch.



MOVEMENT:

oh, mylanta. this is the best part of pregnancy for me. theeeee absolute best. baby boy moves a lot now. i have started seeing his kicks and punches when i'm sitting at my desk. i will never get over being able to feel our baby wiggle + move around.


SLEEP:

pregnancy insomnia is still a thing. it usually occurs between two and three in the morning and lasts for about thirty to forty-five minutes. i've learned to utilize these moments by praying.

i also get uncomfortable a lot. i've learned that i cannot sleep with pants on anymore. [tmi?] and i get hot during the night. [this is not normal for my always cold self.]


CLOTHING:

like i mentioned before, i cannot wear any of my pre-pregnancy clothes anymore- with the exception of a few t-shirts. i'm still wearing the maternity pants i bought at ten weeks. i bought this hoodie from target, and it is soooo comfy. the problem i have with most maternity clothing is that it is sooooo long. i know it's supposed to cover the growing belly, but why are maternity shirts made to cover me from head to toe?


LOOKING FORWARD TO:

my baby shower next month! starting on the nursery. hearing his heartbeat at my next appointment.
