Well, this is from last week. So it’s a little late. We are 20 weeks now. Let’s just pretend I posted this last week on the morning the photo was taken.
How far along? 19 weeks
Total weight gain: 10 lbs total, but the last couple weeks I haven’t gained anything.
Maternity clothes: I’ve been blessed by some lady friends with medium or large sized shirts. Leggings/tights are awesome with stretchy waist skirts. Pants are not very awesome.
Sleep: I can sleep at the drop of a hat. Robert walked in on me sleeping while holding a book last night. I don’t feel too tired, I just have a new (amazing!) sleep skill.
Miss Anything? I will have to say… I do miss beer and wine. Also, a couple hot cups of coffee in the morning would be so cozy.
Movement: None yet. Apparently my placenta is right up front so I won’t feel movement as soon as other ladies. Should be soon though!
Food cravings: Brownies, Sushi (cooked, of course)
Symptoms: Lower back pain, headaches with any “strenuous” activity.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I had some emotional moments this weekend. I usually feel happy and excited! I love sharing this time with Robert.
Looking forward to: We have a Dr. appointment tomorrow. It’s a group appointment. Other first-time mamas and their men come together with the midwife and nurses to discuss pregnancy topics once a month. I look forward to hearing that little heartbeat!
