Baby's size: Large mango.

Next appointment: August 4.

Total weight gain: 52.8 lbs. So, down almost 5 lbs. from last week. I'll take it.

Exercise: Next to nothing. When I'm on my feet for more than 10 minutes at a time, they swell up. And I can't even go back to yoga this weekend due to the swelling/numbness in my hands. I need to join a pool.

Sleep: Using the CPAP 100% of the time now, though I have to sleep sitting up on the couch with my feet on an ottoman. If I lay on either side my whole body goes numb and then has shooting pains. It's really awesome.

Food cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary.

Symptoms: The vivid dreams are returning, likely because I'm actually reaching REM sleep with the CPAP. There was a rather involved one the other night with Bradley Cooper in it. It wasn't dirty, though - he was like my stepfather or something.

What I'm loving: I'm finally starting to look like I have a baby bump and not just a food baby.

What I'm not loving: The general discomfort I'm in, like, all of the time. Oh, and how the cardiologist assumed I'm eating potato chips 24/7, when I eat clean about 85% of the time.

What I'm looking forward to: ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL VIABILITY.

Best moment this week: There was a day when we checked my BP and it was normal and my blood sugar was normal and I felt like, "Okay, maybe I'm going to be okay after all."


  1. Love your best moment of the week :)

  2. Yay for the bump!! And double yay for good bp and blood sugars!!
