I never realize how large I’m getting until we take pictures!! I was looking at the last pictures we took (green sweater) and thinking, “I haven’t gotten much bigger since then.” WRONG!! But it’s fun. Klont is nearly 5 pounds and I’m supposed to be gaining a pound a week from here until the end with half of that pound going directly to the baby. I am more than happy to split the weight between us!
I have about 5 1/2 weeks to go. I’m feeling pretty good. I get cramps every once in a while (I think it’s the ligaments still stretching out to accompany the ever-plumping up baby), I’ve had a few braxton hicks contractions and I’m sleeping pretty well considering the limited positions I can be in. In the past few days though, I’ve been exhausted. I haven’t really experienced fatigue yet in my pregnancy…not the way I hear other women talk about it. But lately I’ve been getting like 9 hours of sleep a night and I’m still tired all day. Oh well. That’s it. Not many complaints! The baby’s moving around tons these days and we can’t wait to meet him/her!
