Size of baby: According to BabyCenter, you’re about the size of an avocado.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up about 12 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Have pulled out a few maternity tops/dresses (more to change up my wardrobe than from necessity). However, I am weighing my post-prego pants as my waist has widened a bit.
Gender: Should find out in about a month. I suspect that it’s another girl, but only time will tell. =)
Movement: Feeling some movement now occasionally. Some rolling around and a couple of sharp jabs last week.
What I miss: I miss not having to second guess everything I eat and whether it’s on the “do not eat list”. Went to Jimmy Johns for lunch yesterday and had a hell of time trying to find a sandwich that was “safe” without being heated up.
Sleep: Eh, wrong day to ask. Sleep sucked hard last night. For the most part it’s ok. Still waking up to use the bathroom though.
Symptoms: Not a whole lot of symptoms. Not starving-hungry anymore, my weird, weird dreams seem to have subsided. Aside from getting fatter, I seem to be doing ok. =)
Cravings: Not a whole lot of cravings these days.
Best Moment this week: As I haven’t written in 5 weeks, there have been a lot of great moments, I’m sure. But yesterday was Mother’s Day, so that sticks out. We didn’t really do anything that out of the ordinary, but I reflected a lot on how happy I felt being a mother to a lively, funny, beautiful, friendly little girl, and a to-be mommy to a (currently) mellow little one. My life has been blessed in so many ways.
What I am looking forward to: Have a doctor’s appointment later this morning, so will get to hear the heart beat again. =) Also, kind of looking forward to making the transition to maternity clothes as I think I may be a little more comfortable… and it means that I get to do some shopping as I was never pregnant in the summer before. I’ll need to stock up on some skirts and light pants.
