8 Weeks and Bumpdate
How far along:
How big is baby:
the size of a raspberry
I recently purchased a pair of maternity jeans and they are awesome. Thankfully the weather is turning cooler and I can wear more of my sweater dresses. Most of my pants are snug and uncomfortable.
Still no weight gain though (weighing 123lbs).
The baby is actually moving now, but it's still too tiny for me to feel anything.
Nothing out of the ordinary. I continue to crave fruit and sugary stuff. Tums are my new best friend! I love drinking fruit juice each morning, and I have been drinking lots of water throughout the day.
Anything fried or greasy, 'well done' cooked steak, grilled shrimp, carbs, anything heavy
10 weeks until we find out!
(That also means that Christmas is right around the corner!)
Brandon thinks his initial guess could have been wrong. I will be thrilled either way, but I'm secretly hoping for a little girl!
Tender breasts, acid reflux when I'm hungry, indigestion after meals, aversion to foods, intense sense of smell, increased appetite, extreme fatigue, bloating, DROOLING during the day now, "pregnancy brain", moodiness, mood swings, weepiness, headaches, constipation, nausea, bleeding gums, and sore hiney from the PIO injections
What do I miss:
Nothing terribly. I prayed to be pregnant with this sweet baby.
I will enjoy a yummy NY Strip cooked 'medium' once "The Sneak" arrives.
Best moment of the week:
Our ultrasound appointment seeing how much our baby has grown.
Also, getting started on my pregnancy scrapbook for "The Sneak."
What am I looking forward to:
Continuing our appointments with the RE throughout the end of October and being released to our OB.
"The Sneak" grew so much in the course of a week and as is measuring well.
"Baby is growing about a millimeter every day. Lips, nose, eyelids, legs, and back continue to take shape. Even though I cannot feel it, the baby is now making spontaneous movements, twitching his/her tiny trunk and limb buds."
from What to Expect When You're Expecting
Still not a lot of changes.
Here's to a happy and healthy 8th week!
