I feel like I look similar to the last picture I posted but it has been 4 weeks... so time for an update!! I feel like I just look like I ate a giant meal. But I know these days are numbered! It also looks like I am arching my back... but I wasn't - I swear I'm not trying to stick it out! (As Mason always says)
How far along? 14 1/2 weeks
Total weight gain: 4 pounds! They say I will now start gaining a pound a week! I can't imagine gaining 25-35 pounds!
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I wake up once each night for a very needed potty break. I also feel uncomfortable and can only lay on my sides. Some nights are better than others. I read that during this stage there is a hormone that makes it difficult to sleep. I suppose that's what's going on.
Best moment this month: Hearing the heart beat at the doctor's appointment last week. It was amazing hearing that little pitter-patter. You could hear mine behind it as well.
Movement: None yet.
Gender: I am convinced it's a boy. I still have 7 more weeks until I find out... the suspense is killing me!!!
Labor Signs: none
Belly Button in or out? in
What I miss: SUSHI. Oh I miss it so much. We were such good friends.
What I am looking forward to: Feeling my little one start to kick inside of me.
Monthly Wisdom: I'd say my monthly wisdom comes from my student teacher who is 28 weeks pregnant. She has been my 'baby guru' and informed me on SO many things. I have learned where to apply shea butter to avoid stretch marks, what's ok to eat or not, and just this weekend I went to her baby shower and learned what to register for!! So fun!
Milestones: I am officially in the 2nd trimester! That's means I'm 1/3 of the way done. Whoo-hoo!
