Baby is the size of a butternut squash (about 17 inches long)
Weighs about 3 pounds
Sleep:Pretty good lately, I sleep for about 2 hours stretches then have to roll over because my hips ache but I'm able to get back to sleep easily.
Mood changes: Not really a mood but I'm really tired again...ugh.
Cravings: This last week nothing has sounded good. I take that back. Things sound good, I make them and then I don't want to eat them/they make me nauseous.
Other symptoms: Slight swelling in my left foot and my fingers
Movement: This baby is so difficult to feel on the outside. It's like her back is facing outward so all her kicks are toward my spine. I feel her kicking but no one else really has. Husband has felt her once, maybe twice. She likes to kick and sit on my bladder so I constantly feel like I need to go to the bathroom but I get there and nothing comes out. It makes me feel a little stabby to be honest.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Food in general. Just feeling puke-ish lately.
Have you started to show yet: For sure!
Do you have a name picked out: No, but we have gotten our list down to 3 names. I'm sure we'll take those names off the list too. This baby gets to choose her name when she goes to kindergarten.
Maternity clothes:Yep. I still wear some normal clothes that are stretchy and when I have to I wear normal pants with the belly band but holy moley...maternity clothes are the shiz! I received a bunch of hand me downs from Husband's sister and I am loving having maternity shorts. I have yet to be able to actually find maternity shorts that don't look like underwear made of jeans with an added stretchy panel. Who are these pregnant ladies wearing shorty-shorts? I've never seen them.
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out: in
Wedding rings on or off: on but getting tight.
Looking forward to: Being pregnant for 10 or less weeks!
Things I'm worried about:Not feeling her kick as much as I felt Tate kick.
Things I'm loving: Dreams about the baby. I have a dream at least once a week that I give birth. Most are weird. One of the most recent dreams was instead of Lamaze or sitting on an exercise ball or whatever to make contractions easier to manage the nurse would guide you through performing a ballet. The nurse was in full ballet gear (leotard, point shoes, tutu, hair in a tight bun...) and I was in point shoes and a hospital gown. The nurse did the actual ballet and I was supposed to watch her and do the same movements with my legs. It was ridiculous but I delivered a huge baby with lots of brown hair.
