Baby Size: A papaya (10.5 to 11.8 inches long and 12.7 to 20.8 ounces)
Weight gain: Maybe 1-ish? Hard to tell…my scale hasn’t moved much in the past few weeks so we’ll see.
Workouts: Weekend walks, CrossFit Tuesday, and I plan on going the rest of the week. So far so good!
Maternity clothes: I wore maternity pants for the first time on Monday and am wearing them again today (wore regular pants yesterday)…they are just beginning to be more comfortable…so I broke down and ordered 2 more pairs of dress pants (since I need more than 1 pair for work) for the rest of the pregnancy. Hopefully that will do me 🙂
Stretch marks: Nothing.
Sleep: As long as Brooke sleeps through the night, then so do I, minus a few bathroom trips.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: This little one is super active. I feel like he moves all the time, which is good, but his little punches and kicks are getting harder and sharper.
Food cravings: Cereal, peperoncinis, grapefruit, and crunchies (like peanuts in my salad, dark chocolate chips in my cereal, etc.) super cold water…weird stuff 🙂
Aversions: Still struggling with chicken and steak…and had meatloaf last night and it was totally a texture thing and I couldn’t get much of it down…
Labor Signs: Nope.
What I miss: Selfishly I miss doing CrossFit like I should be able to, but taking it easy until we can confirm the placenta has moved!
Symptoms: I’ve been crampy and headachy, but nothing that would be considered worrisome or abnormal…just usual pregnancy stuff. Also, I thought it was girls that were supposed to steal your beauty…I’ve definitely looked better!
Nursery: We’ve talked about what we need to do….does that count?
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood: I’m struggling with this one. Some days are pretty good but for the most part my mood has been rotten. There are several factors to blame, none of which I’ll get into here, but I try….try…to wake up each day with a positive attitude. It usually lasts an hour or so. Hopefully its a hormonal thing and will get back to normal soon!
Best moment this week: A lovely lunch with some of my favorite girls to celebrate Michelle’s birthday <3 Love these ladies. Somehow we all were dressed in black and white so a picture was required.
Looking forward to: The weekend!
