•How big is baby?: Head of lettuce! 18 inches tall and about 3.2 pounds!
•Movement: Tons! He loves sticking his little butt out of my belly, and sticking his feet in my ribs. He does more rolling, pushing and moving, than he does hard kicks. Either way, I love it so much!
•Stretch marks?: Nope!
•Sleep?: I get real uncomfortable as soon as I lay down in bed to go to sleep. I know I toss and turn all night, and I have to get up at around 2-3 am every morning to pee. So basically, sleep is getting worse.
•Symptoms?: Braxton Hicks, peeing a lot, pressure down low.
•Food aversions?: Not currently.
•Food cravings?: Still: Mac&Cheese, pasta, and anything with cheese! And MEAT - cheeseburgers, venison, steak.
•Labor signs?: Nope. Just BH's.
•Belly button in or out?: Still even with my belly. Although, the top half occasionally pops out a little.
•What I miss: Bending over and moving easily.
•What I'm looking forward to: Getting construction started so that we can get Cael's nursery set up. I can't wait to nest.
•Best Moment this week: Feeling Cael have the hiccups, even though Matt couldn't feel them on the outside.
•Milestone: Being 30 weeks!
((This is a collage of weeks 5, 15 and 30, to show my belly progression))
Today I started to wean off of my Celexa, and onto Wellbutrin. For two weeks, I will take Wellbutrin every day, and Celexa every other day. After the two weeks, I stop the Celexa, and continue taking the Wellbutrin every day. This should help avoid any withdrawal symptoms that Cael would go through after birth from the Celexa. I've gone through Celexa/Lexapro withdrawals myself, and I would not want my son to go through them. So this is the best option. I just hope the Wellbutrin works just as good for me, and keeps my anxiety, palpitations and depression at bay.
We also found out that the Contractor can start our construction at the end of July! I am so happy and excited that we finally have a time frame - and it's only 4 weeks away until we have a nursery for Cael. And then I can nest all I want, and prepare his nursery. I'm so excited and can't wait. The only thing is that I will be around 35 weeks when the construction is done, so it's cutting it close to when Cael will be here. But it will all work out.
:::I Love You So Much, Cael Matthew:::
