Well, it was pretty much a unanimous decision from you guys last week that you guys want to see weekly bump updates. I’ve been doing them since the beginning just for myself, so I figure it’s easy enough to start posting them over here! I’m starting with this week, so enjoy!
How far along? Fourteen weeks!
Size of baby: Monster is the size of a lemon this week – up more than half an ounce from last week!
Maternity clothes? I bought some maternity pants this week and I honestly want to wear them for the rest of my life. So comfy! I haven’t worn them yet – still using my belly band with shorts most of the time, but I’ll definitely be stocking up on maternity clothes before school starts back up in a couple of weeks!
Sleep: I’m far less fatigued than I have been, but I’m still having no trouble getting to sleep at night! I wake up 3-4 times every night to use the bathroom, though, so I’m not sleeping as solidly as I’d like!
Movement: Still no baby movement yet!
What I miss: Knowing how to dress myself! I “popped” a little bit this week and I’m having a hard time figuring out what to wear – my belly isn’t big enough that I look obviously pregnant, but there’s definitely something there, so it’s a fine line between looking cute and just looking chubby!
Cravings/Food aversions: I’ve been loving bacon this week, and I finally broke down and had that cold turkey sandwich I’ve been craving for weeks now. I’m also back to being able to eat (and actually enjoy) salads, which is beyond exciting!
Other Symptoms: I had a few moments of what I like to call “pregnancy rage” this week, but nothing too awful. Also had a few people comment that I’m starting to show, so it’s all starting to feel a lot more real!
What made me cry this week: I was a bit emotional this week and cried over a few small things, but nothing too ridiculous.
Favorite moment this week: We got Monster’s crib this week! It was on sale so we decided to go ahead and get it, even though we aren’t going to put it together for a few more weeks because we still have some projects to take care of in the nursery. But, there’s just something so exciting about knowing that we have it!
