How far along? 8 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? I was up 2 lbs. last Friday, but now I’ve lost them again so I’m at a zero gain.
Maternity clothes? Not yet. But I wear a lot of leggings.
Stretch marks? None yet, at least none from the bean, that is. I leave the house every morning feeling like a greased pig with all the oily shiz I’m slathering my body in. I know the stretch marks are inevitable, but I’m doing my best to minimize their appearance in the long run!
Sleep? I’ve been tired in the afternoon and evenings, and sleeping better than I have been.
Best moment last week? Talking about names with James. Makes things feel real! I also had a chance to talk to my Grandma in Canada on the phone. I don’t talk to her much, so that was awesome. I can’t wait to tell her about her first great-grandbaby =)
Movement? Not yet.
How about food aversions? Because I basically have an aversion to life
right now. I can’t eat without feeling nauseous unless it’s oatmeal,
cheese, meat, bread or pasta. Not good things for my waistline! (Same as last week)
Symptoms? Food aversions, Acne, Tired, Nausea, Sore ta-tas since the beginning, strange red patches on my face, which isn’t unusual with my “allergy skin,” but these are sticking around, lot of snotty nose-blowing…yum!
Gender? I’m still feeling boy!
Labor signs? Nope.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: Food.
What I am looking forward to: The first ultrasound in 9 days!
Milestones: The bean is the size of a raspberry and your tail is gone! You’re starting to look more baby-like with a giant head and tiny legs like dad 😉
