Due date: November, 28.
Symptoms: Heartburn is really driving me nuts lately. And I mean like spitting/burping up mouthfuls of whatever I have consumed and/or stomach acid. >_< Sorry for the image...
Feeling: Excited! I just can't believe there is a real live baby in there and I will get to meet her in 3 months or less. :D
Cravings: I had Steven get me a bacon cheeseburger on the way home from work yesterday. He was giving me a hard time because whenever he gets those I say they're disgusting lol.
Aversions: None but a lot of food gives me heartburn.
Sleep: Heartburn keeps me awake and wakes up me up throughout the night. I even tried 2 types of medicine but neither worked.
Health: Good, I just tested negative for gestational diabetes and the strep b virus. But unfortunately, since I tested positive for strep b earlier in the pregnancy, they're going to have to do an IV of antibiotics during my labor just to be on the safe side. I'm trying to find out how necessary that really is...
Exercise: Nah, half the time I get contractions just from going to the grocery store or doing chores. :(
Labor signs: I start to get painful contractions sometimes but I lay down and drink a lot of water and they go away.
Skin: My eczema is doing a lot better since I got the hazelwood and amber necklace. It has almost fully healed on my arms and face, but I still have a patch on one of my arms, and a spot on my forehead. I got some Aquaphor I'm going to try on them.
Best moment this week: Baby had the hiccups! Steven was here and he reached over and felt them. :)
Baby related purchases this week: None this week. We have almost everything we need though. I think all we need to get is a double stroller, a car seat, cloth diapers, and some various little things.
Baby's size: Almost 16 inches long and almost 3 pounds.
Weight gain: At last check, 37 pounds. x_x
Movement: Still very active. It feels like she's trying to bust out of there!
Name: Brynna Rose. :)
BabyCenter update: Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
