Today I'm leaving to go on vacation with my family for the week! I am so happy that I get to spend some more time with my family. I'm also really excited about all of the yummy boardwalk food. French fries!!! Fresh-squeezed lemonade! I hope I don't lose all self-control this week. I'll eat some extra fruit to balance it out.
Stalk you all next week! How far along: 14 weeks! Baby is the size of a lemon - about 3.5 inches long. I think baby can start making faces around this week.
Physical symptoms:Fatigue and hideous hip pain. I keep thinking I've found the magic cure, but then it comes back after a few days. Also, I've been having really disturbing dreams usually involving murder.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:+0.8 lbs
Maternity clothes:I'm still getting by in my regular clothes.
Stretch marks:None that I've noticed.
Sleep:See physical symptoms - what do you think?
Best moment of the week: Making our first baby-related purchase! It was exciting and made this is all feel so real.
Movement: Nothing yet!
Food cravings/aversions: No cravings out of the ordinary. I'm starting to hate fruit again, which was normal for me pre-pregnancy. I still cannot look at, smell, or think about scrambled eggs.
Sex: Not sure yet.
Labor signs:Not yet, thankfully.
Belly button:Still in.
What I miss:I miss not thinking about everything I eat. I had a pretty healthy diet before, but I worry about more specific things now. Did I have enough calcium? How many servings of fruits and vegetables did I have? Was that too much sugar?
What I am looking forward to:Vacation! And also the 16 week blood work and integrated screen results. But that's not until August 6th (plus a week for results).
