How many weeks: 23
Showing? Ginormous. I'm embarrassed to admit I am depressed over how large I am (and I still have 15-17 weeks to go.)
How am I feeling? Tired. Depressed (see above). Elated to still be pregnant and feeling movement. Hopeful.
Doctor’s Appointment? Saw my endocrinologist today. I'm severely hypothyroid, so were going to manipulate my meds til I get back into the normal range. I was the most hypo I have been in 6 years! No wonder I've been lagging even more than usual (and perhaps it has contributed to my magnificent weight gain). I absolutely adore my endo and his staff. He will have me retest in 4 weeks and go from there. Managing my thyroid from half a world away--now that's a doc that cares!
Workouts? Just walking and pushing strollers and carrying a 25lb toddler
Sleep? Terrible. Jet lag plus no naps while on holiday in CA have put me in bed by 8:30 most nights, and then it has taken our son a week to get his sleep right (its a 15 hr time difference from China to CA)...can't wait to get back to my afternoon naps and full nights of sleep.
Weight Gain? As I said last week, I'm following Jessica Simpsons footsteps this time around. Wanna be shocked? 22 lbs in 23 weeks, 7 of those pounds have been gained in just 21 days. I want to cry! But before anyone blasts me--I will stand by my claim that I will do anything to get this baby home healthy and alive, no matter how many lbs I have to gain...just wishing it wasn't so much, so fast!
Baby preparation? Uhm....between grandmas and aunts and great grandmas.....I have at least a suitcase full of girl clothes. We bought some formula to supplement with and pacifiers, bottle nipples and the like. So.much.stuff! Babies are expensive, yo.
