But first - here is a screen shot of my "What To Expect" app on my phone. I love it. It has daily advice and weekly updates on your body and the baby. But probably my favorite part is seeing how big the baby is - for instance, this week he's about the size of a papaya. He started out at about a raspberry and has gone through just about the whole produce department. awww....
total weight gain: 12 lbs.
maternity clothes: love them - so comfy! i know that's what i'm going to miss most after the baby comes. but i'm not really loving the variety (or lack thereof) in the stores. i hate going to target now and seeing all the cute non-maternity clothes they have and knowing there's no way any of it would fit me. and then going to the two maternity racks they have with the same old plain t-shirts. but i did recently discover that there's a Motherhood Maternity store close to me and they have cute stuff!!! yay!
sleep: love it! still sleeping great. hal gets up around 5am during the week, so when his alarm goes off I usually get up and go to the bathroom, but then it's back to sleep for at least another hour. or hour and a half. :)
stretch marks: nope. i did get some cocoa butter stretch mark lotion at the Motherhood Maternity store and have been using that every once in awhile.
best moment of the week: well, it was technically last week, but having our ultrasound and seeing our baby move around for a good half hour - watching his little heart pump away. wish i could see that every day!
miss anything: working out. well, i go back and forth with this one because, really, who loves to work out. but i've just been feeling huge and out of shape lately and would kind of love a good, sweaty hardcore workout. guess i'll just have to stick to my walking and maybe a pregnancy workout video.
movement: haven't felt a ton of movement, but apparently he's moving around like crazy in there. there's been a few times where i can distinctively feel a kick or a movement, but most of the time i can just feel the pressure of it. the doctor said today that i have an anterior placenta, which is normal, and that's why i haven't felt a lot of the movement.
food craving: again, nothing specific. every day it's different, but nothing crazy.
anything making you sick/queasy: feeling pretty good in this area.
have you started to show yet: um, yes. got a good little "bump" going on. i've really felt in the last couple weeks my belly has grown a lot. hard to imagine i have FOUR months to go!!! yikes. i'm going to be the size of a barn!
belly button in or out: in. but i think i can tell it's getting closer. eek.
wedding rings on or off: on.
happy or moody most of the time: happy. well, not like bouncing off the walls happy, but not necessarily moody. just regular.
looking forward to: a long weekend with no agenda. i have today off and monday is a holiday so yay for nothing to do. i'm so looking forward to it since we've been gone so much lately. but i do have a lot of cleaning and organizing to do around the house - haven't done laundry in awhile. plus i think i'll make a trip to Joann's and pick up some fabric for an easy burp cloth tutorial i found on pinterest. we'll see. it better be pretty easy for this novice. and i will probably head over to babies-r-us and maybe start a registry there, or just see what they have.
