I haven’t decided if I’m going to take bump pictures this time around, but I definitely want to try to track my symptoms. I feel like it’s so easy to forget EVERYTHING. With that said, I’m going to (try) to fill out these questions every week or at least every couple of weeks.
How far along: 6 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain: 0
Maternity clothes: Not yet, BUT, I tried. I wore my maternity pants because I’ve been getting SO bloated at night and we were driving to Chicago (1.5 hours) for a family dinner… the idea of feeling my body passionately fight its way out of my pants all night did not sound appealing. I was comfortable, EXCEPT, every time I stood up, my pants slipped down. I have been rocking my leggings and baggy sweaters more often.
Stretch marks: Nope (please, please, please stay that way!)
Sleep: Probably since the night we conceived, I’ve been waking up 1-2 times a night to pee, which I NEVER do when I’m not pregs. Okay, I’m exaggerating. But the night wakings to pee started rright away. That was the first symptom that made me think I might be with child again.
Best moment of this week: Yesterday, a college friend of mine came to pick up the first of three pieces of bedroom furniture (really cool old stuff from Mark’s Grandparents) to be refinished for Charlie’s big girl room!! I’m super excited about it. I’m sure there were other great things this week, but my memory sucks and I was pretty crabby this week… so who knows!
Miss anything: Nahh… maybe feeling alert! I’ve been so tired lately.
Movement: Do gas bubbles count? No, no movement.
Food cravings: Ugh I love food. I’ve been having some serious cravings for crispy crust pizza. The craving has lasted for days and days and I haven’t given in… today might be the day! Also, iced chai latte. Mmm.
Anything making you queasy or sick: When I get hungry, I tend to get uneasy. Also, cooked mushrooms. I haven’t felt as nauseous this time around.
Have you started to show yet: Nope!
Gender: No idea!
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: This week, a bit crabby during the day.
Looking forward to: I’m taking Charlie to the zoo on Saturday and we’re going apple picking on Sunday! Great weekend ahead.
