I know that 8 weeks doesn’t sound that far along, but during my first pregnancy and now, it feels like a big accomplishment. I still haven’t had my first doctor’s appointment yet, meaning no confirmation of a heartbeat, BUT, my belly keeps growing and I have daily bouts of nausea. PLEASE say that’s a good sign!
How far along: 8 weeks! 2 big months!
Total weight gain: 0… maybe .2 lbs, but my scale isn’t that good that I trust it.
Maternity clothes: Gotta love those over-the-belly pants. I’m not wearing them every day, but my b-bump is getting pretty in charge for 8 weeks. Add in my end-of-day bloat, and regular pants just don’t work..
Stretch marks: None (fingers crossed)
Sleep: Mark was out of town this weekend, so that didn’t help. I was up literally 5-7 times per night. Now I’m at about 2-3 times per night. Ughhh. SO.DAMN.TIRED.
Best moment of this week: Mark came home yesterday! It was really nice to have him home! And Miss C took about 6-7 steps across the room! She was so excited. Her face was literally beaming. She was proud.
Miss anything: With the way I’ve been indulging, how could I miss anything?
Movement: Not yet!
Food cravings: Gummy bears & candy, chocolate milkshakes, dessert, BAGELS (in a big way)… everything.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Late afternoon and evening. Just existing during those times. And my prenatals.
Have you started to show yet: Holy cow… yes. It’s so shocking.
Gender: I’m thinking a little lady. My symptoms feel so much like they did with Charlotte. And, according to the Chinese Gender Predictor Chart, it’s a girl… and you know that’s legit.
Labor signs: Thank goodness, no!
Belly button in or out: Very deeply in.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: I’ve been good. Charlotte has been such a sweet little munchkin. It’s been really sweet and heartwarming to be around her.
Looking forward to: Dinner with my girlfriend and her family on Friday! And potentially seeing Dirty Dancing the musical on Thursday! AND!! Most importantly, my first doctor’s appointment is NEXT WEEK!
