I’m 27 weeks pregnant and feeling quite a bit better than I did last week for sure. Things have started settling a bit and it’s looking like money isn’t going to be quite so tight. This is all a big weight off of my shoulders. Baby is moving around more than ever, I’m trying not to stress so much about the idea of preterm labour, and we’ve decided on a first name. I still have to work on a middle name, though.
How big is Baby? 37 cm / .9 kg
Total weight gain/loss? I’ve been too scared to weigh myself. Last time I looked I was around 165 lbs, which is 20 lbs up. I know I’ve gained a little bit more than that by now, though. I’m probably close to 25 lbs now.
Maternity clothes? Nothing has changed. Jeans and dresses all day every day.
Stretch marks? Nothing yet.
Sleep? I’m still pretty tired, still getting up a bit earlier than I used to. That being said, I’m actually sleeping a good, solid 8 hours a night. I’ve been cutting back a bit on the fluids late at night and I haven’t been waking up to pee! I’m thinking that this is helping.
Best moment this week? Just feeling a bit more positive again, I felt so down all of last week.
Miss Anything? I miss feeling good about myself. To be fair, I don’t know exactly what it is. I was just doing so well while I was losing weight and getting more active, and I think there’s a part of me that is really bothered that I’m gaining so much weight again.
Movement? My bladder feels like a tiny trampoline and my ribs are punching bags.
Food cravings? Sweets, all of a sudden, which is a bit unusual for me. Also, milky tea.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not exactly. I’ve been experiencing occasional bouts of heartburn, though.
Have you started to show yet? Definitely.
Gender? It’s a boy!
Labor Signs? Nope. Stay in there, baby!
Belly Button in or out? In
Rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time? As I mentioned, I’ve been feeling pretty down lately. I’m definitely feeling better, but I’m still not feeling 100%.
Looking forward to? I’m not really sure at this point. It probably sounds pretty weird, because it feels pretty weird. I’m just in this really strange headspace where I want to be positive and happy, and I’m definitely not feeling so down and depressed. I’m just stuck in an emotional limbo.
Have you ever dealt with depression during pregnancy? How did you deal with it and get back to a better state of mind? I’d love to hear your stories, so leave me a comment or tag me on social media!
