Alright...here's my first week of the old pregnancy survey! I'm curious to see how often I remember to do this...
How Far Along: 14 weeks as of this past Thursday
Size of Baby: About the size of a lemon!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Who knows. According to my scale at home, only about a pound since the day I found out. According to the doctor's scale, about 3 pounds. This baffles me since I feel like I am really showing. I would think the weight gain would be higher. No complaints though.
Maternity Clothes: Using the bella band with a lot of pants, and I purchased some maternity jeans from GAP (for all you Charlotte gals, Northlake Mall has a maternity section in the back of Baby GAP!). Other than that, shirts and dresses all still fit fine. I am really glad I bought a few pairs of pants though. They are like heaven.
Gender: We find that out a month from tomorrow!
Movement: Still too early
Sleep: Not bad. Sleep hasn't been too much of a problem for me so far. I do get up about once a night to pee (something I never did before). And my dreams are seriously wacky these days. Thursday other night I had a dream that poor Rosie had been turned into an orangutang and was being chased through our yard by a python. So that's pretty crazy.
Symptoms: Pain in my tailbone on an almost daily basis. Thinking about going to prenatal yoga...anyone have experience with this? Did prenatal yoga work for you?
Aversions: The one time of day I have food aversions is when my kids pull out their snacks at school. The mixed odor of Slim Jims and Doritos makes me want to vomit. (sidenote: why can't parents pack healthy snacks for their children...fruit, granola bars, crackers, carrots?)
Cravings: Frozen yogurt covered in fruit and nuts, apple juice in the morning, and root beer. I also had an amazing BLT at Toast yesterday. That may become a summer staple in my diet.
What I miss: Beer....this baby is SO worth it, but seeing all the summer ales on the shelves is making me want one so badly! Other than that, the ability to take allergy meds without feeling worrying. I just can't justify taking medicine unless I am in legitimate pain, and a runny nose and sneezing are just annoying, not painful.
Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat this week and setting our date for the anatomy scan!
