How Far Along: 8 weeks (belly pic is 8w5d)
Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Raspberry
Total Weight Gain: None so far.
Sex: No clue. That is many, many weeks away.
Movement: Many, many weeks away.
Sleep: Getting up to pee a lot, but on the whole, sleeping like a log.
What I miss: deli sandwiches!
Cravings: Grandpa Joe noodles, lima beans
Symptoms: Actually, since yesterday, they’ve almost disappeared. The last few weeks I’ve been steadily getting more exhausted, more nauseous, more broken out. Then I woke up yesterday morning, my skin was clear, my stomach didn’t feel sick, and I was able to stay up until 11 last night without any problem…without a nap! I’ve heard this could be because the placenta is starting to take over. If this is true, the placenta is magical.
Emotions: Less ragey and weepy the last couple of days as well. I feel almost like my old self.
Maternity Clothes: My old bras are all too small, and today is my first day using a belly band because this particular pair of jeans no longer buttons comfortably (or even uncomfortably after lunch.) I’ve been wearing other maternity clothes just because they are SUPER comfy, but not really necessary.
Best Moment this week: Being terrible and eating a ham sandwich at a picnic this weekend. It was so delicious.
