My mom mentioned that you can't tell I'm glowing in different pictures I post but that she could tell via a google hangout. I really have no idea the difference so I'm not sure.
I think I actually have "some time" this weekend so maybe I'll get to add some stuff to my registry.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 5.1 lb gain overall. I gained 0.4 in the past week. The doctor mentioned I should be gaining .5-1 lb a week. A few weeks ago I was way above that. But I'm still low overall since I lost early. Between doctor appointments I gained 8 lbs and she commented that in 5 weeks I shouldn't have gained 8 lbs but she made no mention of how earlier in the pregnancy I lost weight and should make up for that at some point. Well this was with the Physician's Assistant not my real doctor. In 3 weeks I'll be at the dr again since the appointments should be every 4 weeks and I'll see what reaction I get then. (Update: 2 hours later but before I ate, I weighed myself again and it was a lb or so higher. I got off before it stopped moving so I wouldn't get confused later by multiple numbers.)
Movement: I felt movement a few more times this week than in the past. I noticed feeling the kicks a lot more on days I wasn't so super busy at Dev Bootcamp.
Sleep: This is about the same as it has been. Dev Bootcamp related to lack of sleep not baby related. But I'm more exhausted from this baby. For the past 7 days my sleep efficiency has been 91% according to BodyMedia fit.
What I miss: Same as the last 2 weeks. I do also kind of miss lunch meat. I barely had any for the first year of living here but lunch meat would be super nice when I'm at DBC all the time.
Being able to go almost all day without having to go to the bathroom. I'm not liking this every couple hours thing.
Aversions: Nothing really
Symptoms: I haven't really noticed any this week but I do know that I will end up lightheaded on Monday when we have to stand at dry erase boards for so long.
Best moment this week: I'm not even sure.
Looking forward to: Same as last week. I guess I should start being excited about more stuff.
Last week: Same as last week (next paragraph) + seeing what Dave does to the nursery. Apparently he's setting it all up and I don't get a say. I wonder what colors he's even using. I do know what the crib will be and that's it.
Getting more sleep. But I probably should have something else that I'm looking forward to, too.
Exercise: I ended up walking to the train station Monday morning based on my awful morning. Then I got a ride home so I didn't exercise in the evening. Tuesday I biked in the morning, walked to the train station from DBC, and then biked home. Wednesday I biked to the train station, got a ride to google later, walked partially home from google, then rode my bike home from the train station. Thursday and Friday were the same as Tuesday. The bike rides are only biking about 7 minutes. There are lights involved so it takes a little longer but it's still some form of exercise. Walking to the train station takes around 25 minutes. It's all light dependent and I feel like most of my time is spent waiting for walk signals. According to google maps it is 1.4 miles and should take 28 minutes. I often start walking before I put on strava but then also the distance is always messed up on strava so the pace is off. So I am exercising based on my commute. I don't know if that's as much as they suggest I do or less or more it's just what I do to avoid the bus and avoid annoyingness of driving. I haven't been to yoga in awhile and haven't gone to a gym to lift weights in even longer. I really would like to get a real workout in and not a commute at some point. It's a lot harder to walk in flats that are dress shoes or harder to walk and bike with a bag that always moves around. Also my arm muscles are all but disappeared from going so long without doing much of anything. I wonder if I could even do a pushup anymore.
Oh the other day I thought I had a particularly fast ride home so I wanted to compare my stats and then learned that strava doesn't provide any because it lists the commute home as dangerous. I always say it's dangerous and I'm afraid I'm going to get hit by cars on multiple occasions but I didn't figure strava would think the same thing.
