Baby size?a fig!
Stretch marks? oh they will come
Sleep? not great, i’ve been waking up vomiting and with fevers–i had a terrible stomach bug last friday, and i think i haven’t fully recovered still. i only had some slight morning sickness (here and there, if i missed meals) before getting sick this weekend, but since being sick i haven’t been able to keep down anything more substantial than fruit or soup. which is a shame because i would really love a steak-n-shake guacamole cheeseburger with straw fries smothered in ketchup right now.
Foods I am loving? nothing, all food hates me. this makes it hard to cook for my family. i have been able to go back to my old obsession–grapefruit. and good ole chicken broth. and dry toast. i would really like some frozen yogurt but i think that wouldn’t stay down very well.
Foods I am hating? meat, beans, eggs, pasta…
Best moment this week? zu and i did some fingerpainting for the first time–it was an experience!
Movement? yes! consistently feeling flutters!
Symptoms? tired and sick sick sick
What I miss? honestly? Nothing. I LOVE being pregnant! i think if i could be pregnant all the time, I would be. i felt this way last time too. Ok–morning sickness, aches and pains, complete hugeness. Whatever! i love how purposeful i feel knowing that I’m growing a new life inside me. it is such a miracle, and i’m grateful God’s allowed me to experience this again.
What I’m looking forward to? the ultrasound in a couple of weeks! too early to find out the gender, but i love getting to see more of a profile and maybe some little baby feet!
Emotions: happy, excited!
