Weight GainI go to the Dr. this week, so I will update this section next time :)
BellyI don't see a size difference but for whatever reason its lower this week. Weird.
Stretch MarksNo new ones....on me. So funny story, I have been teasing my husband about being too sympathetic with this pregnancy. He has been gaining weight (intentionally though since he is "bulking up" before he "cuts down"), he has been moody, and now he has new stretch marks. Yup, sympathy stretch marks. Granted, they are on his underarm/bicep so its definitely from him working out. But I call it as I see it: sympathy stretch marks.
SleepSleeping even less than last week. On a good note, I am not waking up every 3 hours to pee! So I am able to sleep a while longer between potty breaks. I am still having strange dreams. In these dreams, I have no kids and somehow my husband keeps turning into one of my ex's. Except in the dream I do not like my ex (just like in real life) so I wake up pissed off HAH!
MovementNothing new this week!
SymptomsStill taking Zofran. Still needing Zantac and Tums.
This morning I woke up and it felt like someone kicked me in the pubic bone. Pretty sure that its my "rubber band" stretching.
Food CravingsCheetos and fruit! Oh and salad.
Food AversionsNothing new there.
GenderWon't find out until the end of this month, at least I know the appointment date now!
What I MissHaving a clean house. I have spent so much time at home, but have zero energy to clean and/or I feel sick. So I just sit here and stare at the mess. LM has been getting better about picking up her toys every night so that is good at least. Hubs also keeps the sink empty. Another plus. But there is a nice layer of dust and my floors are horrid. I miss having a clean house.
What I'm Looking Forward ToGetting my hair done in a salon! I usually color my own hair but since I am preggers I don't feel comfortable breathing in all those fumes in my tiny bathroom. So this is my Mother's Day gift :)
Weekly WisdomUsually working out leaves me feeling energized, but apparently doing 2.75 miles on the elliptical for a pregnant woman requires as much energy as running a half marathon when I was pre-preggers.
Highlight of the WeekI went back to the gym, and all the ladies in childcare were ooohing and ahhing over the bump. LM was explaining to them that I am having a baby girl and naming her Princess. And that she is having a baby boy. Oh kids say the craziest things.
EmotionsI feel like a little bit of the fogginess has lifted, for example, I like my husband a little more this week. HAH! But I am still feeling disconnected from the growing belly.
My mother-in-law is coming in town this week for Hubs birthday and for Mother's Day. The goal tomorrow is to clean the house. Monday I need to clean my washing machine and tidy up my craft desk. That way when she gets here I can at least pretend my house hasn't been a disaster for the last 9 weeks....
