How Far Along? 11 weeks, almost 12!
Weight Gain? 2 pounds.....and so it begins
Maternity Clothes? Just one top from my shopping spree last weekend was actually maternity. I did go into one maternity store and quickly walked right on out. I'm not ready for all my tops to tie in the back and be super long! It may be harder to shop at this phase than I expected. Anyone know where to go for cute maternity clothes? Especially work ones?
Symptoms? None other than the exhaustion. I seriously need to get in about 11 hours of sleep a night. And if I don't get all that during the week, I'm taking 2-3 hour naps on the weekends. That exhaustion and super busy work hours are the combo platter that have caused me to abandon posting this past week. Some days I go into work at 7am and stay till 6:30pm, other days I go in at 9am and stay till 8pm!!! There's just so much to do. I can't wait for my boss to return from maternity leave! Add in the 35 minute drive home and it's almost time for bed.
Sleep? Lots of sleep. I have noticed that my arms fall asleep during the night. It's random when it happens. Some times its understandably the arm that I'm laying on, but some times its the other one.
Food Cravings? Anything I don't have to cook! Maybe that's why I got an extra two pounds this week!
Best Moment This Week? Actually I just got my best moment. We just got done with our Doctors appointment and they did another ultrasound. Saw and heard the heartbeat that was still beautiful to hear. I wish they could record it and that is what I would choose to fall asleep to every night. For awhile though, we just watched the baby move. He/she was moving all over the place!!! I mean, Tasmanian Devil moves. Arms flailing, legs stretching. Absolutely breathtaking!!!
Movement? None I can feel but thanks to the ultrasound, we've got a mover and shaker. Kinda makes me nervous that he/she will be taking after Tim :)
Gender? No idea, no dreams about it, nada.
What I Miss? My energy! We'll be soon getting out of this trimester and then I supposedly get more energy. That'll be a great day! Working 10-11 hrs/day + Sleeping 10-11 hrs/night = not much time to do anything else.
Weekly Wisdom? Even when you put on your pre-pregnancy pants and still think they fit....try sitting down before heading out the door to work.
Milestones? One more week of the first trimester. Some days I still don't believe that we've made it this far.
Emotions? I'm guessing needy. Tim had to fly out to DC this week and was gone a total of 24 hours....and it was awful. Cried three times because I missed him so bad! How needy is that!?!?!?!
Appointments? Today was our last double check appointment before we go into regular-pregnancy-land. Our next appointment isn't for a whole month. I can't remember the last time I went a month without seeing a Doctor.
Baby size? Over 1 1/2 inches....the size of a fig.
