(written November 29th)
how far along: 7 weeks and 3 days
size of baby: blueberry
maternity clothes: no, jeans still fit, but again definitely prefer the loose stretchy pants.
symptoms: sick this week! just a cold, but can’t take meds. prunes and prune juice are helping other issues. feeling queasy every now and then but peppermints or a snack help. smells haven’t really bothered me, but today the smell of my own HAIR made me want to throw up… weird!
cravings/aversions: I meal planned yesterday and all I wanted on the menu was mexican food. I also HAD to have taco bell for lunch today. I mean I normally love mexican food anyway, but now it seems to be one of the only things I think about and want vs. just tolerating. Also, I have ALWAYS hated pepperoni pizza and sausage pizza. I tried them both this week and it turns out the pregnant me like both!
movement: still too early! ready for some though.
sleep: a little better this week, but still lots of night bathroom breaks.
gender: no idea, hoping/praying for a boy for William’s sake.
looking forward to: the follow up sonogram in less than a week!
worries: having irrational fears for the first time about miscarriage, particularly about “silent miscarriage,” which I didn’t know existed. thanks what to expect app community boards… swearing those off now!
milestones: I got an applicator for my progesterone (doctor didn’t say I needed it, but I asked and she said it won’t hurt anything to take it, so I said yes) and now that nightly ritual is much easier!
best moment this week: the dad ornament I got for William came in! can’t wait to give it to him.
