This weeks didn’t bring many changes. I am sleeping 12-14 hours a night, and so thankful to be able to, even when I wake up, I feel like I could sleep for hours more. I had my real first instance of waking up in the middle of the night starving and had to venture out to the kitchen to get something to eat. I had my real first almost vomit, which I credit to brushing my teeth, and am so thankful Joseph was home and able to run to get some saltines.
How far along: this update is for 8 weeks
Total weight gain: –4 lbs from prepregnancy
Maternity clothes: I did make a pair of maternity shorts which I wear frequently. All of my other clothes still fit, but these shorts didn’t until I made them maternity.
Sleep: I feel like I could do this all day.
Best moment of this week: Seeing how big headed our baby is.
Miss anything: Not really.
Size of baby: Right now it’s the size of a grape/green olive.
Food cravings/aversions: aversions to EVERYTHING. I have things I want. Sonic Ice Water is still a big one. I’m really wanting nachos, like the crappy ball game nachos with jalapenos. We’re going to have to stop buy all the gas stations to find some.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of mayonnaise, ground beef, chicken.
Have you started to show yet: Just the bloat, and its bad!
Gender: We both think boy now. we’ll know in about 7 weeks!
Labor signs: too early..
Belly button in or out: In, but I can hardly wait for it to be out!
Wedding rings on or off: I’m pretty bad about remember to wear rings, but just because I’m forgettful.
Happy or moody most of the time: Volatility is high, per Joseph.
Looking forward to: First OB appt on Tuesday the 3rd. Also my grandfather is coming in town.
