The bump is trying really hard to make its appearance...although it still just looks like I spent a little too much time at an all you can eat buffet :)
How far along?
How big is baby?
A navel orange or a box of crayons (~4"/2.5oz)
What's baby up to this week?
Baby is moving around like crazy and may even be hiccuping in there! All the joints and limbs can move now and baby's proportions are becoming even more normal.
The nausea seems to be sticking around this week, although it isn't as bad as it has been...I guess I should grateful I am not dry-heaving or gagging like I was a few weeks ago...but I was SO looking forward to the "dreamy" second trimester! I also had one night of pretty severe heartburn...I thought I had had heartburn before, but I was wrong. This was brutal...it had me up in the middle of the night throwing up for almost an hour. Guess I learned my lesson...baby and Red Lobster do not mix :)
Thanks to a sale at Destination Maternity I was able to snag 2 pairs of leggings for $10 each!! My current leggings are just fine for now, but I can't ever seem to pass up a sale :)
Sleep has been pretty good, I am only getting up to go to the bathroom once most nights. I did have a few nights where sleep was harder because of some congestion...I am not sure if it was due to allergies, a cold, or a 2nd trimester symptom my app just told me about today...my body seems to be right on track according to that darn app. Usually a day or 2 after the new symptom arrives it shows up in my app...guess I am normal ;)
Still my energy...it's' been really hard getting out of bed in the mornings...and that afternoon slump is legit, do you think the kids would care if I took a nap under my desk?
Still haven't had much of an appetite, so I basically eat because I am supposed to...not because anything in particular sounds good.
I had a cucumber in my salad at my parents house last Sunday and while I didn't love it...I didn't hate it :) Progress my friends, progress!
I feel really lucky that I haven't experienced any of the big mood swings I have heard are common...I feel pretty good and mostly happy. I have been tired and a little less energetic than normal, but nothing crazy....AJ is a lucky guy ;)
Best Moment of the week?
End of the first quarter meant a 1/2 day at work...well, not technically, but we were allowed to leave school to work on our grade cards at home. Jammies, puppy snuggles, and grades > sitting at school and doing grades.
Pregnancy Brain Moments?
Honestly, I can't remember....
Looking forward to?
I have my next doctor's appointment on Tuesday and I can't wait to hear the baby's heartbeat again....AND...after that appointment we will be scheduling our 20 week anatomy scan where we will be able to find out boy or girl!!
Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
I met with a gal about daycare this week and I really liked her...she won't know for another month if she has an opening next fall, but I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed!
Some days are harder than others to get my butt out the door, but I always feel better after I am done! I am running the KC Marathon as a part of a relay team tomorrow and I can't wait to run in that incredible atmosphere again....and to actually run a race. Fall marathon season has been hard...while it's totally worth it to sit this year out...I can't help but feel that urge to run a big race....maybe next year :)
