Oh man guys, last week was rough, emotionally and physically. I came down with some sinus thing about a week and a half ago and I didn’t sleep more than a couple hours for 6 or 7 nights. This led to me being utterly exhausted. Add in an almost 5 year old who has decided to start having a major attitude and an almost 3 year old who feels the need to whine about everything and I was about to lose my damn mind. I felt like I was on the verge of a meltdown for the whole week. I was so short tempered and irritable that it certainly didn’t help in the kid department. I knew I was being irritable, but I just could not do anything about it. Thank God I have an understanding husband who knew I wasn’t sleeping and understood when I told him that I realized I was being a brat, but I literally couldn’t stop myself from yelling at the kids. Friday night I finally got a good nights sleep and didn’t have to wake up early and I have been feeling sooooo much better! It’s amazing what a little sleep can do. It makes me thankful again that this little one will be leaving the hospital with her dads and I won’t have to wake up all night to do feedings or change diapers 😉

I’m so glad to be feeling back on track emotionally and we had a really great family weekend (despite the kids’ attitudes). Hopefully I can stay healthy from now until September so I don’t have another week like that.

Weekly Update:

How far along: 27+1 (6 more days until 3rd trimester!)

How big is baby: about the size of a fennec fox, 15 inches long and over 2 pounds

Symptoms: I’m definitely feel like I’m heading into 3rd tri. I get heartburn everyday when I’m hungry. Tums were helping, but I’m thinking I may need to bump it up to taking Zantac. I’m having Braxton Hicks everyday and a lot of the time they are accompanied by some decent cramps in my lower abdomen. They are often strong enough to make me stop what I’m doing and take a minute to wait for them to pass. I’m not concerned about them though as they aren’t regular and definitely aren’t labor type contractions. I’ll mention them to my OB on Wednesday, but I fully expect her to tell me they’re completely normal.

Movement: I finally caught some good strong kicks on video and sent it to her dads and they were able to see them clearly this time. She is so hard to catch on camera or even just with my hand. The moment I lay my hand on my belly to feel her kicks she stops. I don’t know how she knows, but I swear she does and refuses to perform for anyone LOL

Sleep: Much better since my sinus issue resolved.

Miss anything? being able to wear regular jeans. Spending Saturday in a pair of maternity jeans reminded me why I basically live in leggings and dresses. I was pulling them up every 5 seconds and it drove me batty!

Food cravings? had a completely random craving for a fruit tart on Saturday night…that’s one I’ve never had before LOL Other than that just the usual, sweets and Mexican food. Pizza usually gets my taste buds watering too

Anything making you queasy or sick? too much sugar (GD screening is next week so I have another few days to enjoy my sweets)

Best moment of the week? catching little miss on video to show her dads and taking our kids to The Reptile Zone. My snake/lizard loving boy was in absolute heaven and Liv thought it was pretty cool too. She kept looking at the snakes and going “awww he’s so cute!”

Next appointment: June 13th is my next OB appt, then GD screening sometime next week

I feel like the bump is definitely bigger. I think she’s changed positions since last week. I’m pretty sure she’s still head down, but now I think her back is on my left because I feel the most movement on my right side. I’m interested to see what position my OB thinks she’s in.
