How Far Along?: 8.3 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: One-two pounds, give or take.
Maternity Clothes?. Already rocking the belly band so that I can still squeeze into my skinny jeans.
Stretch Marks? Nope, applying lotion liberally!
Sleep? Up until week 7 I was struggling to stay awake until 9pm and sleeping like a rock, but now I’m getting a bit restless and needing to pee multiple times. This week I’ve been able to stay up later but need a mid-day nap.
Best Moment This Week? Seeing baby again at our second ultrasound (after a spotting scare) and getting to spend Thanksgiving with both sides of the family.
Movement?: Not unless you count gas bubbles! 😉
Food Cravings?: 4-5 weeks I wanted to eat EVERYTHING, especially junk food. Week 6 was nausea week and I only felt ok on basics like crackers, cheese, toast, peanut butter, cereal, and soup. Just in time for Thanksgiving, my nausea waned and I’m back to wanting to eat everything in sight!
Anything making you queasy?: Week 6 everything made me queasy. The thought of red meat was so nasty! Feeling better now, but if I go more than two hours without eating I’m starving and feeling nauseous.
Baby Bump?: Just some baby/constipation bloat.
Gender Prediction?: I’ve had an inkling it’s a boy from the beginning. The grandmas are rooting for a girl since I have a brother and my husband has two brothers.
Labor Signs?: No.
Belly Button In or Out?: In.
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: HAPPY! Happiness definitely overshadows any hormonal moodiness.
Miss Anything?: Not at all! Well, I may have stared at a few glasses of wine longingly over Thanksgiving, but totally worth it.
Looking forward to?: Seeing baby again this week at our third ultrasound!
