Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am down 7 pounds from pre-pregnancy as of this morning. It’s starting to get frustrating – I am eating everything IN SIGHT and can’t gain weight. Why can’t I have this problem when I’m not pregnant? 🙂
Maternity Clothes: I think I shrunk this week. 🙁 I’m actually back in my normal pants for the most part, but I do still have to do the rubber band trick on them. I’ve got the (small) belly…it’s just because I’m losing weight and that’s balancing out my growing belly that I’m able to wear my regular pants!
Gender: Not a clue! We find out in about 2 weeks, on October 4th. 🙂 Don’t forget, you can vote here if you have a guess!
Movement: I think it’s still too early, but there have been several times this week that I could have SWORN I felt something. It feels like the slightest little taps on the inside of my tummy. It’s incredibly light…if I wasn’t looking for it, I probably wouldn’t notice it, but I think there’s something going on! 🙂
Sleep: Still great! Waking up one time in the middle of the night still, but that’s really it.
What I miss: After this week…my immune system. Ha! I’ve had a cold and now pink eye in one week. They aren’t kidding about your immune system being down during pregnancy!
What I am looking forward to: Feeling some distinct kicks! And of course seeing what this sweet baby is!
Cravings: No real cravings, but I’m starting to want more “substantial” meals…not just pickles and sorbet all the time. 🙂 I actually cooked this week, I was kind of proud of myself!
Symptoms: I still get sick in the mornings, especially when I brush my teeth. That gets me EVERY time. But I’m not sick anymore besides that! I believe having a cold started the lovely sinus problems you get during pregnancy, because I’ve had a stuffy nose ever since.
Best Moment This Week: Hearing that sweet baby on the doppler…I know I say that every week, but it really does calm my nerves, especially since I’m just not growing a whole lot yet.
