How far along: 8 weeks
Baby size: Kidney Bean
Baby's progress: Webbed fingers and toes! And Brain development!
Weight gain: I'm down 3 pounds. Food aversion is real.
Stretch marks: Nothing yet.
Sleep: So far, so good. I'm so stinking tired that my bedtime is 8 pm.
Gender: We aren't finding out :)
Movement: Nothing I can feel
Best moment this week: Ultrasound!!! I cannot wait.
Looking forward to: Getting the 'all's good' at the ultrasound so we can start planning our announcement.
Food cravings: Food is gross and I want nothing. I'm drinking protein shakes and carnation instant breakfasts because I need sustenance. And Greek yogurt with granola. Nothing sounds good and everything smells horrible.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I haven't been sick, but I'm queasy quite often. The thought or smell of food intensifies it.
Labor signs: Nope
What I miss: Wine. Salami and Cheese. I dream about those sandwich's.
Symptoms: the downside - bloating, constipation, nausea. The upside - naps (lots!), cuddles and a teeny tiny bump!
Workouts: I'm going on two walks a day at work - over a mile each time. That's all I have energy for right now.
Things that suck: Allergies!!
Things that don't suck: Naps. I cannot say enough for the amazing power of naps.
