100 Days of Pregnancy: Day 54

I'm still battling whatever is going on inside of my body, which I believe is a sinus infection. I've been on the antibiotics for more than 24 hours now. I think I'm starting to feel better...I was at least able to sleep, but I'm still exhausted. Right now, my goal is to drink, drink, and drink! I haven't been eating or drinking as much the past few days and my body is feeling it today. I always have the Gatorade instant powder on hand because dehydration happens very quickly with an ileostomy. 

How far along? 32 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain? 27 lbs (I haven't weighed myself since my last appointment but I think I may have dropped 2-3 lbs from being so sick)

Maternity clothes? Yes

Stretch marks? It looks like I have a stretch mark that is peaking it's way out from under my ostomy bag. I was just so itchy after I put on my bag that I kept scratching (which I know I'm not supposed to do because the skin there is so sensitive) and once the bruising went away from my scratching, I saw what looks like a stretch mark. I'll know for sure if it is when I change my appliance. I'm curious to see if it's a stretch mark or if it's my previous scar that's somehow stretched. 

Sleep: Not so good since becoming sick. Last night was pretty good but I did wake up a few times sweating buckets. If I don't sleep with a fan blowing directly on me, I sweat BIG time (it's gross) and lately I've had to turn off my fan and turn on the humidifier. 

Best moments this week: Feeling this little guy have the hiccups...at first I was wondering what was going on and then it dawned on me. I felt them for the first time on Sunday night and then again last night around the same time.

Miss anything? I miss not being sick! Oh how you always take feeling great for granted.

Food cravings/aversions: Pad Thai this week! I don't have any cravings that seem to really stick...not like you see in movies at least

Showing? Yes

Gender: It's a BOY!!!!!

Labour signs: No...I don't even have Braxton Hicks contractions. I've maybe had one or two.

Symptoms: Heartburn, sciatic nerve pain occasionally, cramps in my calves each night, leaky boobs (which is kind of exciting because that's something I never thought would happen)

Belly button in or out? It's becoming more flat each week.

Wedding ring on or off? Off, but I'm wearing my "Love Knot" ring which is sized larger and fits comfortably. Funny story about my Love Knot ring...when hubby bought it for me, I thought the sales lady called it a "Love Nut" ring...hubby still teases me about that! I have the matching earrings to the ring as well.

Happy or moody most of the time? I'm happy but emotional. I felt so sorry for myself on Sunday evening when my ear ache was so bad that I just cried...cried and cried and cried some more.

Looking forward to: My baby sprinkle shower next month!!
