Trimester? 2nd Trimester
Fruit of the week? Our baby is the size of an orange! 4 inches long and 2.5 ounces!
Development? Baby M can move all their limbs and joints now!
Movement? I swear I’ve felt some flutters, but I can’t be sure if it is actually baby I feel…
Names? Our boy name is set in stone, and Paul is 100% with the girl name, but I just keep going back and forth. I love the name, but is it the right name for my baby?? January 8th we find out if we’re having a little boy or girl, and maybe that will help us decide!
Testing? Still waiting on the test results of the NT exam
Weight Gain? Still holding steady at 1-2 lbs.
Symptoms? Headaches. Lots of headaches! I get dizzy spells frequently when I stand up. I think we’ve determined that my dry skin is eczema so between that and breaking out, pregnancy is a great look for me… NOT.
Cravings? My frosted flake kick lasted about a week. Now I’m back to not craving anything, but nothing sounds good either. Which makes eating a lot of fun.
Aversions? Still not feeling the poultry.
Sleep? During the first trimester I was tired and blah, and I would nap occasionally but that was about it. The last week or so, I’m sleeping about 8-10 hours a night and I can still nap during the day. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot more energy during the day and I’m being more productive around the house. I’m cooking again and we have clean clothes (which is always a good thing), but sleep is just a happy thing right now. I guess I’m just enjoying it while I can? 🙂
Maternity Clothes? Still wearing all my normal clothes, just not liking the way they look 🙂
What I miss? I still just want my coffee from Starbucks – the holiday flavors are out! So I think this week I’ll be stopping to get a Peppermint White Mocha 🙂
Looking forward to? Spending our first Christmas in our new home surrounded by Paul’s family!
