I'm a little late on my weekly progress report but I have valid excuses. My brother's wedding, lots of resting, and eating everything in sight has kept me pretty busy this week. I feel completely better. The flu ick is gone along with the morning sickness. I should be pretty happy about these things - and I am - but it basically means that in no time I will be eating 2 breakfasts and purchasing whole cakes as an afternoon snack. I gain a lot of weight while pregnant, and this week validates that. Sigh.
Weight gain: I don't think I want to play this game anymore. At least not weekly. Since this is my blog and I'm starting to gain ridiculous amounts of weight in a matter of days, I'm going to withhold answering this portion of the stats. At least until my next doctor's visit next week.
Stretch marks: None.
Movement: It's hard to tell. I'm feeling the tiny, bubbly flutters I've been feeling for a few weeks now, but they could very well be fluttery gas bubbles.
Cravings: Everything. Enough said.
Sleep: I've been sleeping great. And with Beatrice sleeping until 9 a few mornings this weekend, I am feeling mighty rested these days.
Best moment of the week: Stepping into the 2nd trimester and realizing that I only have 5 more months to meet this baby.
Gender: I'm starting to wonder if it's a girl since I keep having girl dreams.
Labor signs: None.
Belly button situation: In, but surrounded by a big, fat belly full of apple fritters and Girl Scout cookies.
What I miss: Red wine sips would be nice every once in awhile.
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex in a few weeks.
Weekly wisdom: Indulging in filet mignon 2 nights in a row along with lots of wedding cake results in more than a few extra pounds....
Milestones: I can no longer say that I have not gained any weight with this pregnancy yet.
Picture? Why yes!
Here's one from 2 years ago with Beatrice.
I think I'm bigger this time around.
