Baby’s size? like a little raspberry!
Weight Gain? not yet, I’ve lost 2lbs since I’ve been pregnant
Stretch marks? No!
Belly button in or out? In!
Sleep? I randomly become so tired that I can’t keep my eyes open (at any time during the day this can happen), so I’ve been taking naps here and there when I can. I don’t sleep through the night very well because I have to get up to use the bathroom like a billion times, its nuts!
Foods I am loving? Italian sausage with onions, hamburgers with avocado, homemade beef stew. Meat, Meat, Meat. I’ve become a total carnivore. Oh and potatoes are good. Especially with ketchup. YUM!!
Foods I am hating? Spaghetti, eggs, chicken, BBQ, pancakes, mayonnaise, salsa, noodles of any kind, white rice, homemade cake, garlic. I can’t even think about them right now. Ugh!
Best moment this week? Seeing our baby’s heartbeat during our first ultrasound. I cried when I saw that strong flicker on the screen! The doctor said the baby’s heartbeat is 162 bpm, which is strong and healthy! It was such a joyful special moment for us, I was so glad B. was able to be off of work/school to see it.
Movement? Not that I can feel, but the doctor says the baby is moving all around in there
Symptoms? Morning sickness, still, and tired. Lots of food aversions. Heightened sense of smell. Also, emotional and Very capricious, which luckily B. finds hilarious and not annoying!
What I miss? Not feeling sick, and having more energy.
What I will miss? Fitting into all my clothes, after my belly gets big lol
What I’m looking forward to? The baby bump! B. and i have literally been telling everyone we run across that i am pregnant–the day of the doctor’s appointment, we told everyone from the cashier at Target to our waiter at Red Lobster. We’re getting really good at working in the announcement lol But it would be easier if my belly made it obvious!
Emotions: Joyful! Content, so excited about our future. It is so wonderful to see how God will lead you to make a step like starting a family, and then immediately begin opening doors so that we will be provided for. The logical part of me would’ve thought it was better to wait a while, until B. graduates this December, but honestly, right now I can’t see a way that we Won’t be taken care of when the baby comes! New things are developing every week it seems, and I know God will make us able to provide for this new little life. God is so good!
