8 weeks

Ugh, today is not my best day. May be my worst day so far. (TMI) I'm having really severe...butt pain. Without getting too graphic it feels like your worst constipation nightmare. Except I haven't had any constipation. I suspect that it has something to do with things growing and stretching in areas where my endometriosis wasn't removed because it feels similar to pains I've had before, just much more extreme. It's also possible that one of my cysts ruptured, but who knows. I don't think it's anything I need to call my doctor about so I'm just praying that it will ease up soon.

Anyway - it's a new week! 

How far along: 8 weeks

About baby: Baby is about an inch long (about the size of a raspberry or kidney bean) and starting to move and look like an actual baby!

Physical symptoms:  I'm still feeling tired, hungry, and queasy plus I have a serious pain in the butt.      

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Nothing yet.

Maternity clothes:  Not needed though, like I said, I'm still avoiding actual pants when possible.

Stretch marks: Nothing yet.

Sleep: Peeing all night, sleeping all day.

Best moment of the week: Best moment was when Packer sent me a picture of the beautiful blanket that she made for baby!

Movement: Not yet, though I'm hoping we'll be able to see something on the u/s this week.

Food cravings: Carbs. The only things that sound appealing to me are potatoes and mac n cheese.

Sex: No idea, but apparently the internal sex organs are forming this week.

Labor signs: Definitely not.

Belly button: Still in.

What I miss: Mostly I just miss actually liking the taste of food.

What I am looking forward to: Second u/s is this week! If all goes well, we'll graduate from the RE and then I'll have my first OB appointment.

Milestones: I'm still pregnant. Doesn't that count?
