Ella's sleep has been pretty awful and thus so as mine. I hosted less things this week because I cancelled 2 things after almost everyone cancelled. It wasn't worth my trouble.
It's been a little hard to get anything done with Dave home almost all the days with his back being bad. Then other days he takes the car because he's going to PT.
We were supposed to have the maternity photo shoot today but with Dave's bad back and Ella's poor sleep, we postponed it until July 24.
My this point last time we had the crib and it was together. We still have that crib but it's not together. We had showers so we had things for the baby. I have the same stuff plus I got boy clothes from a baby swap. Yet I feel like I'm insanely behind and it's freaking me out. Maybe a friend can come over some day and help me assemble the crib since Dave can't bend and I'm getting too stressed out. Weeks ago I got the paperwork I have to fill out and mail to the hospital and I haven't done that yet. This week I better! Last time I mailed it in but then they still asked me all the questions when I got there so maybe it needs to be mailed WAY earlier.
My weight gain is so high and then think how I'm not concerned well maybe I am because I keep thinking about it. I don't know. Then I think maybe I SHOULD be concerned. Weight is an issue even if I'm not concerned because then I think I should be. Stuff is getting a lot harder to do and it'd be easier if I didn't put on so much weight. I am glad I have not noticed swelling this time around. Last time i could poke at my ankles to show off how swollen they were. I'm still wearing my wedding rings even though I think they are tighter some days than others. I might not be wearing them for long. I know I quit wearing them last time around at some point.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 30.1 lb gain overall because I gained 2.7 lbs this past week. I was pigging out and always hungry so it doesn't surprise me. I was also in a lot of pain so simple walking was done less than normal.
Movement: I feel like he moves in spurts. My belly will crazy move but as soon as I'd go to tell someone, there is no movement. I swear I feel the butt and it moves all around.
What I miss: RUNNING! I can't believe I have to be done with it. It was so painful for 3 days after. I really need to not do it. I miss it!
Best moment this week: Toddler Sleepover
Looking forward to: Getting the nursery situated. It stresses me out each time I walk by and see the disaster. It stresses me out more how Dave can't bend or lift so how are we supposed to get the Ikea dresser. AHHH.
Exercise: I ran Monday and taught bootcamp Friday. We went in the pool twice but mostly I have to stick by Ella and she wants to hold my fingers so I don't get much exercise. Ella and I did go on a walk one night.
Different from last time: I talked about how much the baby moved and this time he doesn't move as much anymore or it's just old news because he was crazy moving early. I gained a lot of weight this time and last time I had a 0.3 lb loss. I did a little number compilation of some things and one of them was miles run since being pregnant this time and the total was 106.41. Last pregnancy it was a total of 41.8 miles. Most of those were the weeks prior to finding out I was pregnant! It was a bad time last time. (I ran a half marathon and had 2 long runs leading up to it to help me rack up the miles.)
