How far along? 16+ Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I'll find out tomorrow for sure, hoping my weight didn't jump too much this month since my baby doesn't want anything but baked potatoes. Ok, that's a lie. I love potatoes. So sue me.
How big is baby? About 4 1/2 inches, the size of an avacado but the bean will double in size in the next few weeks.
Maternity clothes? Yup. Mostly just maternity pants and some of my normal tops. They still fit and I'm not afraid to "flaunt" my bump. ;)
Stretch Marks? Only old ones, no new ones from baby T as far as I can tell.
Best moment this week? I only barfed once in the last week. Progress!
Movement? Um, I can't tell. I'm told that I should feel butterflies any time now and sometimes I think I feel something but then I burp and it goes away. So, who knows.
Food Cravings? I don't call them cravings because I still like a lot of the foods I used to and haven't wanted anything super crazy. Since I've been sick a lot, potatoes, soup and toast have made up most of my diet lately. However, this week I've been dying for some fried chicken. Mmm.
What I miss: My energy. Supposedly this is supposed to come back in the second trimester but it hasn't happened yet for me. I go home and crash most days after dinner and then crawl in bed around 9:30. Why do you think I'm not blogging as much? They would go like this "weekend recap: slept, watched Friends, ate, slept."
What I am looking forward to: Eating real food again like my smoothies in the morning and salads for lunch. They sound super disgusting to me right now and that makes me sad.
Nausea/Vomiting?: Still nauseous almost every day but mostly when I need to eat. Luckily, the vomiting only rears it's ugly head about once a week now.
Labor signs? Nope
Gender? Hoping to find out next month!
Belly Button in or out? Innie for life. I hope.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Sleep? Can't get enough. Wish I could sneak off and nap in the server room. It's cool and dark back there. Zzzzz.
Weekly Wisdom: Every pregnancy is different. What one woman experiences may be completely different than the next. I wish I was one of the lucky ladies that has zero sickness and only gains 10 pounds (like my neighbor.Ugh) but I'm loving it regardless. I know the end result will be worth it!!
