This week flew by! I think it was due to the excitement of looking forward to the appointment, and work being really busy this week. In addition, my sister's bridal shower was today, and I had a lot of dessert preparation to do.
Mom says I have a bump, I still think it's bloat, though my stomach was hard, and I couldn't push it in. She might be right. Plus, I've only gained a pound since December, and usually I could go up or down a few pounds and still have a flat stomach. Who knows.
How far along?: 8 weeks 6 days How big is baby?: According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting: Started the week as the size of a Raspberry and about to be a Green Olive Weight gain?: Status quo from last week - total gain of 1 lb
Stretch marks?: No Maternity clothes?:Not yet. Sleep?: Still sleeping on my stomach, but now since I drink even more water, when I wake up, I have to get up! I can't lie in bed or hit the snooze too much because my bladder needs to be emptied! I still take naps, though it wasn't every day this week. Best moment this week?: Going to the OB, and AJ being able to see the ultrasound and hear the heartbeat, too! I also enjoyed sharing the wonderful news with close friends and coworkers. Worst moment this week?: Friday afternoon - I was extremely exhausted and had to sleep for 2 hours. I only got out of bed at 8PM to finish prepping for the mini desserts I was making for my sister's shower. Otherwise, I would have went right to sleep. Food cravings?: Mexican food - I went on Wednesday after the appointment, and it was delicious. Symptoms?: Exhaustion/Fatigue! Though I did go two days this week without a nap, so that is an improvement. Exercise?: Due to appointments (OB, hair, dermatologist) this week, I wasn't able to get to the gym as much. I did weights 4 times this week and completed a short walk around the neighborhood - the dogs were tired since they hadn't been walked in a while. Gender?: Too early to tell - though my dreams suggest it's a boy Movement?: Too early Belly button?: Still in What I miss?: My energy! Labor signs?: too early! What I'm looking forward to?: A relaxing and quiet week. I have to study more for the Professional Engineering exam, thus I am hoping for an uneventful week. Oh, and tomorrow the temperature is suppose to reach 69 degrees Fahrenheit which is AWESOME!!!
