What's new with your little babe this week?
How many weeks are you?
25 weeks. Baby is the size of a cauliflower, but more impressively (to me) my uterus is the size of a soccer ball. Dang. Baby girl continues to move around a ton, not able to feel much from the outside yet tho, maybe due to anterior placenta?
Are you doing anything this week to prepare for your baby's arrival?
Probably not. I did buy some Rubbermaid bins to start going through DD1 clothes and see what can be reused. She was born in August so I'm not sure how much will be appropriate for January/February other than onesies.
Rants / Raves / Symptoms / Questions:
My diet legit sucks and I don't drink anywhere near enough water. I am going to try to improve in these areas , I'm feeling cruddier and increasingly tired and I'm sure that would help.
When's your next appointment?
Nov. 9th @ 28 weeks. I'll do the one-hour glucose test then. Failed last time.
GTKY: What kind of birth prep are you doing? Classes? Doula? Etc.
I haven't done anything. I read a lot of books last time, and I've seen multiple births as a nurse (and been through maternal health and childbirth courses) so maybe I feel like the information would be redundant? I had a scheduled c-section with DD1. We're planning for a VBAC this time but who knows, we didn't expect a C/S last time either until 36 weeks. Sometimes I'm worried I'm not prepping more and sometimes I think it will all work itself out.
