It’s been over a month since I last did a bumpdate! Since my last bumpdate at 28 weeks, we’ve had a mini baby shower hosted by Justin’s coworkers, got a ton of baby clothes for Evelyn, bought a mom car (2008 Mazda CX-9), and set up plane tickets for my family to come for New Years! We also set an induction date for Evelyn: December 29th. But, I’m hoping she’ll come before then. Her official due date is January 2, but we’d prefer if she came in 2016.
Gender and Name | Evelyn Morgan — girl.
Size of Baby | Lettuce Head…we are pretty sure she’s gotten head down now!
Due Date | January 2, 2017…but, we are having her induced December 29, 2016.
Weight Gain | I don’t like the scale anymore. I have a ton of purple stretch marks all over my belly and thighs. Blech.
Clothing | All maternity clothes. I love my Old Navy maternity leggings.
Sleep | Sometimes I only get up once to go pee. But, more recently, it’s been waking up at 5:30 AM to go pee, then back to bed for another 30-90 minutes before Rhys gets up. I’m also only taking naps maybe 33-50% of the time.
Symptoms | Pelvic and round ligament pain like nothing else! I also pull my thigh muscles all the time. Sometimes, it’s super hard to even walk! I’ve also gotten a few headaches.
Food Cravings | Dessert. Pepsi. Donuts. McDonalds’ Egg McMuffins.
Food Aversions | none really.
Rhys | He is learning the difference between boys and girls. He knows that he and Justin are boys and Momma and Baby Evie are girls. He knows that the new clothes we are buying are for Baby Evie and are cute. Everytime there is a baby on a commercial, we try to explain to him, that’s a baby and we are going to have a baby soon. We tried potty training, hoping to only have one in diapers come New Years, but failed.
Here is Evelyn’s 28 week update.
Here is Rhys’s 32 week update.
