How Far Along: 8 Weeks
Baby is the size of a(n): rasberry
Gender Predictions: Mom and Nanny think it’s a girl. I’ve had a couple of boy dreams lately though.
Weight Gain: about 5 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Still holding out. I can’t wait to have a legitimate bump to dress!
Stretch Marks: None. Finally got my Mother’s Friend cream and started using that to deter them if I can.
Belly Button In or Out: In
Wedding Rings On or Off: On
Sleep: Still pretty rough. I had a sinus infection last week so I slept a lot, but it was never very restful.
Best Moment This Week: Seeing some of my family this past Saturday!
Miss Anything: beer.. Nolan’s Dos Equis looked really good while we were eating crawfish.
Movement: not yet, cant wait!
Cravings: Mexican food, grapefruit, cinnamon toast crunch cereal
Symptoms: still with the all day sickness. I threw up twice today. The medicine didn’t seem to be helping much so I stopped taking it but I think I’ll give it another shot tonight.
Noteworthy Moments: More comments about twins! We have an ultrasound Friday, so we shall see. I think it might be mostly bloat though. My belly isn’t nearly as big in the mornings… it just gets that way later in the day and especially at night.
Also, I’d like to give a shout out to working mommas. Pregnant or with children already present. I’m having a rough time right now and it makes me want to stay home and sleep it off all day, but duty calls. I hear that I’ll be tired for the next 18 years, so major props to the many many women that do it every day!
