How far along: 14 weeks
Due Date: September 17
Gender: We’ll know next month!
Baby Size: A lemon! 3.4 inches and 1.5 oz. Baby Mac can now hear, squint, frown, grimace, suck his/her thumb. We’ve started talking to Baby Mac and it’s making it so real.
Weight gain: Still holding at 3 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes: Broke out the maternity jeans and purchased a few other items.
Best moment this week: Celebrating Ryan’s birthday! I also started a prenatal yoga class on Thursday nights and I love it! Only one session and it’s already helping with my back pain and sciatica nerve pain.
Looking forward to: Still waiting for my belly to pop and I’m also headed to the doctor today and I’m excited to hear the heartbeat again.
Food cravings: Chicken fingers, sun chips, mangoes, and stuffed french toast. Sad story, we got up extra early on Saturday to drive 45 minutes to this amazing breakfast place that has the best stuffed french toast. We got there and they were randomly closed! Ugh! Plus, I may have eaten a whole bag on sun chips on the way home from the grocery store. Oops.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I’m doing pretty good this week! Everything is good except broccoli.
Labor Signs: I hope I’ll be leaving this section blank for a while!
What I miss: Sleeping well. And I know I won’t be sleeping well for year ahead. But, insomnia is hitting me hard, I get up at night and just lay awake thinking/worrying about things.
Mood: Pretty happy this week! So glad to be feeling better. I still cry at almost anything though, but usually happy tears.
Symptoms: Trouble sleeping and back and hip pain. I’m also already suffering from sciatica nerve pain.
Sleep: See above.
Loving: See both of our sets of parent’s this weekend and taking in everyone’s excitement over Baby Mac. This baby is already so well loved and it makes my heart so full.
