Feeling: Pretty good with some aches and pains, and a few queasy days. I’m getting very sick of eggs and things that are GD approved, so sometimes I don’t think I eat enough to keep me feeling stable. I’ve had more queasiness in the 3rd trimester than the other two combined, but maybe it’s due to the heat. I’m almost there though, and the contractions slowed down this week. I decided I’ll probably go up to my due date and just this mental shift has helped me feel like I have a lot more energy and that’s helping me finish nesting and get all the last minute things done! In fact, at my appointment this week my doctor mentioned induction and that if I’m still not progressing next week we’ll officially schedule the date. She told me to plan to only be pregnant another week and a half, and that has me feeling hope and excitement to look past the pains!
Body Changes: I’m up a lb. this week, and if I gain one more in my final week I’m going to be textbook weight gain. I’m learning you only have so much control over that and some people stress not gaining enough or gaining too much, but I’m feeling lucky I’m right on track for what average is!
Craving: Ice chips and cold water. I’ve felt extra hot this week, and had a lot of food aversions. I think anything cold has sounded great, but the classic cold water glass has been something I can’t get enough of.
