8 months pregnant

I was waiting for a good picture to post this, but it hasn't happened yet. I'm posting anyway. You'll have to wait another month to see the enormity of my belly.

How far along are you: 8 months

Recent appointments: I had a bunch of different appointments this month. When we took Baby J to his last appointment, both J and I got the flu shot. I saw an osteopath for help with the major-but-one-time-only sciatica pain. That was an interesting appointment and I was supposed to go back for a follow-up but I don't think I will. I had a midwife appointment just after Christmas. She was able to confirm that Baby #2 is head down. All the other measurements look good and because of that, I didn't have to go again for 3 weeks which is actually tomorrow, but I'll talk about in my next monthly post. I'll be going weekly from now on.

Total weight gain: 19 pounds @ 7.5 months. I was shocked to find that I hadn't gained any weight over Christmas, but I'm not so confident for my next weigh-in.

New symptoms: Some exercise gave me lots and lots of contractions and aches and pains all over. Not surprising really.

Best moment this month: Getting back in the water. I went lane swimming a few times and really enjoyed being back in the water.

Food cravings / aversions: The only thing recently I really (REALLY) wanted was Harvey's. I think it's because I drive by the new Harvey's on my way to work.

Belly button in or out: It's mostly flat.

What do you miss: Most of my clothes, or clothes that fit at all. I'm really down to a limited wardrobe but I still fit into my winter coat.

What are you looking forward to: Finishing work. SO looking forward to that.

Picture: Like I said, no new picture this month.

  1. That's hardly any weight! I guess that's also because I gain a lot when I'm pregnant. Yay for almost being done work!

  2. Well, we'll see what I weigh today.. it has been 3 weeks!
