Well, this pregnancy thing is really hitting high gear now. I’m actually starting to feel pregnant. Not quite look pregnant yet, but I’m definitely showing more with this one than I was with my first.
In my first update I mentioned that I started off at 136 lbs. Well, that was before I got the stomach bug. When I was weighed at the doctor a few weeks ago I actually was down to 132. Like I mentioned before, I’m not keeping track of my weight week by week, but I am curious to see how much I gain overall. With my first I only gained 25 lbs, but honestly I’m expecting it to be much more this time around. Mamma is hungry! (And lazy!!).
8 Week Update
Workouts: Oh so lazy!! I don’t think I did any yoga this week. I tried to get out for walks but I’ve just been feeling so shitty.
Symptoms: The dreaded morning sickness continues. The only thing that seems to help a little bit is to just keep eating all day long. I’m talking three breakfasts and all of the snacks before lunch. Also this week I think my hormones have kicked it up a notch because I am super emotional! I cried last night because my husband wouldn’t come to bed (in my defence, he hasn’t slept in the same bed with me in about two months and I feel like it’s starting to negatively affect our relationship..but that’s a whole other post.)
Food Aversions: Coffee is still out. And water makes me feel queazy, which is really unfortunate. I’m happy to report that I’m now able to stomach cake. Did I mention how much weight I anticipate gaining?
Food Cravings: Fruit is still pretty amazing. Especially grapefruit and blueberries. And all of the breakfasts that involve egg, bacon, cheese and bagels.
Sleep: I feel like I could sleep all day if given the opportunity. Doesn’t help that I’m up every 2 hours needing to pee and my son has been crying out at 5am.
Miss Anything? Coffee. And this week I missed wine. Wine is always nice when you’re feeling extra emotional (though more than two glasses is very dangerous when in this state!). I also miss having energy.
What I’m Reading: No baby things. I’m re-reading the Glass Castle.
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: It was a big week – we had our first ultrasound!! It’s so cool to see the little peanut on the screen and see their heartbeat. I also booked my first midwife appointment so that’ll be coming up in early July.
