I love reading bloggers such as Schnelle, Veronika's Blushing, or Perfection Possibilities pregnancy updates so I've decided to do the same and keep track of my pregnancy this way. I think this will just be a monthly thing and I'll summarize the month instead. I also loved how Merrick wore the same dress when she did her updates so I'm going to try to remember to do the same. I'm a copy cater. I own it :-)
Weight Gain?: I lost weight when I was sick but I'm pretty sure I've gained. I'll find out on Friday at our next appointment.
Maternity Clothes?: I tried to fight this as long as I could but my bump popped VERY early on. I had to buy maternity bottoms just because yoga pants aren't acceptable at my office nor in court. How I wish they were...
Symptoms?: Thankfully, the nausea has gone away but now I have some bad acid reflux. I had reflux before getting pregnant but it is definitely worse now. I find that drinking chocolate milk helps it get better.
Sleep?: Yes and no. I sleep is spurts like 2 hours here or 3 hours there. My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me lol
Do I miss anything?: Soft cheeses, cold deli meats, sleeping throughout the night, sushi
Movement?: I sometimes think I feel a heartbeat or movement but I think it's too early for that.
Anything making you sick or queasy?: Smells!! Oh my goodness, air fresheners will literally make me sick. Ahem...mom's air freshener. The smell of chicken grosses me out too.
Food cravings?: I mostly have cravings 'of the day' but lately cocoa krispies cereal, tomatoes, watermelon, strawberries, chocolate, and Japanese food.
Have you started to show?: ABSOLUTELY! It's crazy how early my belly popped. Although I now love seeing the bump grow, I thought I would have a couple months to continue wearing my regular clothes but nope. Belly is out in full force.
Boy or a Girl?: Don't know yet but we finally decided on names! The girl name came pretty easy and I love love love it. The boy name was a little harder but we've finally decided. So if it's a girl, I'll be calling her baby "O" until she's born or, if it's a boy, he'll be baby "L" :-)
Best Moment This Week?: We're looking forward to our appointment on Friday and hoping that our little one is still healthy.
