(written December 5th)
how far along: 8 weeks and 2 days
size of baby: raspberry
maternity clothes: I can still wear jeans, but definitely prefer stretchy pants.
symptoms: still battling a cold so the weakened immune system is in full force. fatigue has been
less this week and so have bathroom issues. still no throwing up or morning sickness!
cravings/aversions: pickles! I want a million McAlister’s pickles. And mexican food. no major aversions, but not crazy about sweets.
movement: too early
sleep: better this week, less potty breaks it seems.
gender: still hoping for a boy for william. some wives tales point to boy, some point to girl.
looking forward to: being out of the most risky trimester! and knowing the gender.
worries: currently none other than worrying that William will be disappointed if it is a girl.
milestones: we had our follow up ultrasound and the baby’s heartbeat was 179! from 89 to 179 and the doctor was ecstatic. the baby also looks sort of human-ish now!
best moment this week: hearing the heartbeat, knowing that the heart rate is good and baby seems good, and seeing it look like more than a grain of rice! it felt a little more real.
