Due Date: July 15, 2016
Baby Nugget is the size of a: Fig!
Total weight gain: -2.0 lbs. My home scale and doctor’s office scale differ from each other by about 3 lbs but I’m down 2 on both. Trying to hold off on my weight gain for as long as I can.
Maternity Clothes: None yet, but I have started wearing a Belly Band for my jeans just because I don’t like the buttons touching my stomach.
Stretch Marks: No new ones… I don’t think. #huskygirlproblems
Sleep: Due to this cough that won’t go away, not sleeping more than 3 hours at a time. Right when I do fall asleep, it is time to get up for a bathroom break.
Best Moment of the Week: We told my mom about the baby yesterday on Christmas. She is excited but also reserved and that broke my heart a little. Her dancing around after made it better 😊
Miss Anything? Steak cooked to medium temp, hot dogs, lunch meat.
Movement: Too soon to tell.
Food cravings: All carbs. I had potatoes and a biscuit for breakfast one day. Noodles. Rice. Bread. Cooked spinach surprisingly.
Anything make you sick or queasy: The thought of all other vegetables other than cooked spinach. I tried to eat sweet potatoes the other night and they felt like they were trying to crawl down my throat.
Gender/Sex Prediction: I feel it is a girl. Planning to not find out till our reveal shower sometime in April/May.
Labor signs: Thankfully no!! I need these to not be a thing for a good long time.
Symptoms: Tiredness is still a big one. I can also smell everything. No nausea this week but the feeling of having too much saliva whenever I smell food isn’t pleasant. Dull pain on right side when I turn too quickly.
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Bump: Meh.. who knows. I have been taking pictures but because I have a tummy already it’s kind of hard to tell what’s just regular fat and possible baby.
Happy or Moody: A good mix of both. Not quite moody; more so nostalgic. It is Christmas and I am enjoying time with Hubbins and family but thinking about the fact that Langston should be here.
Looking forward to: My first appointment for genetic testing with Maternal Fetal Medicine on Monday. Making it to the end of my first trimester on January 1st 🙂
