How far along?
Total Weight Gain? Actually still dropping weight right now despite my improved appetite... I'm down about 12 lbs right now. I tell you the morning sickness has been WAAAY worse this time, it's still lingering but it's only off and on instead of constant which I can handle.
How big is baby? The babe is the size of a peach apparently, and the last apponitment showed everything measuring exactly on track.
Gender: the great mystery??? can't wait to find out in a couple weeks!
Maternity Clothes? Not wearing any yet really, I just put on longer shirts and comfy pants or leggings right now.
Morning Sickness? See above... ugh
Mood Swings? I'd say I'm a little worse this time around, I don't know if I really have mood 'swings' I just seem to have a LOT less patience so the littlest things will send me off. But being busy with both businesses, going back to school, and having a one year old should probably get me some slack right...
Buy anything for baby this week? I bought HL some mohawk hats which are really cute. I also got him some books and a surge protector baby cover so he can stop playing with all of the cords. Other than that I added a couple of things to the registry like diapers and a crib mattress since we have EVERYTHING else we need which is awesome!
Stretch Marks? Oh only the lingering ones from my son... on my boobs... and they will be fixed someday!
Sleep? Sleeping pretty well now that the sinus crap is gone, no complaints there yet. I just seem to wake up really early these days... like it's still DARK outside and I am wide awake!
Best Moment This Week: Getting excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas coming, listening to xmas music, playing with the Grinch and HL, and compiling xmas gift ideas, I love to shop for people! Oh and best of all hearing that baby #2's bloodwork came back all normal for Down's and Trisomy 18... so much to be thankful for!
Worst Moment This Week: Sinus infection, back pain, and lingering morning sickness... I can't catch a break I tell you!
Movement: Not quite yet although I've literally felt phantom baby kicks since I was about 5 weeks lol!
Cravings: I guess the Lindt truffles I bought last night... and those dang tomatoes & cottage cheese ;)
Labor Signs: Oh definitely not thank you!
Belly Button In or Out? It's still in
What I miss? I miss not having an awful taste in my mouth 24 hours a day, it makes my desire to eat anything go down the drain because I know my mouth will be nasty. I am also missing bloody marys and tomato beer, yummmm, here we go with the tomatoes again!
What I am looking forward to? the holidays! and snuggling up with my little family in the mountains with the snow :)
Weekly Wisdom: Keep enjoying EACH week, do NOT rush things, I learned this when my last pregnancy was over and I'm working very hard this time to savor every day!
Milestones: Well we're out of the first trimester!! Which is fabulous for so many reasons
