I either have a touch of a cold or exhaustion has come back. I guess I'm hoping it's a cold? I went to bed at 8:50 on Saturday and 9:00 yesterday. I didn't even stay up to watch any of Downton! (I did watch 2/3s of it during nap time.)
Last week I forgot to write about my 29 week appointment. As of then, I'd gained 20 lbs. The doctor thinks she is head down, and I agree. I feel most of the kicks pretty high. I'd be at 2 week appointments now, but my doctor is on vacation this week so I don't have to go back until next Tuesday. That's okay by me!
I've mostly been wearing a few new maternity items I've bought and a small hand-full of things from before. This weekend I got everything out of my maternity bin and tried a lot on. It's baffling to me, but most of it is HUGE. I'm not really that much smaller than I was with Tillie, but I have two pairs of pants from her that work(and they're not very flattering). I found two short sleeved tops, but I don't love them anymore. I don't really want to buy any more clothes, so get used to seeing me in the same outfits again and again the next 9 weeks! Also, I feel like a hypocrite, but I've embraced leggings as pants. I know. It goes against everything I stand for, but at least I'm wearing them with tunics that just cover my butt, right?
My ankles started swelling at exactly 7 months with Tillie. They didn't swell at all with Teddy. If it's a girl thing for me and it follows the same pattern, that will be Friday. I'm hoping it was just being on my feet at J. Crew that caused it.
I set up a baby guessing game. Here are some "clues": Tillie was 10 days early and Ted was 4 days early. I was born 2 weeks early and Tim was 1 day early. Tim was 8lbs 2oz, I was 6lbs 13oz, Tillie was 6lbs 15oz and Ted was 7lbs 6 oz. Happy guessing! The reigning champions are my sister-in-law Amy and my cousin Cara.
