|i didn't feel like this pic showed the enormity of that which i feel in my mid section.|
|so i tried a close-up. better.|
inanimate comparison: the size of a large avacado.
maternity clothes?: leggings, yes. but i'm in the in between phase right now. i have one pair of jeans left that button, but i use the rubber band trick or the bella band for the rest. i wear a few maternity tops. i love the long length! question: do the maternity pants with the elastic wasteband (not the full pannel) last you for the whole pregnancy? wondering if they're worth my money.
cravings: mcdonald's cones. strawberry cake. (see this post. it is to die for). also, other fruity treats...like, peach yogurt or blueberry cake doughnuts (must not buy these).
aversions: i am friends with chicken again. not just a slab of it, but cut up. i tried caffeine in one of those store bought starbucks drinks and i did not like how it made me feel.
emotions: nothing to complain about.
fatigue: getting better. it's to the point where i don't necessarily realize it during the day, but i will get home and just crash. i have no trouble sleeping...until i get up for that first potty of the night. then my mind starts a-racin'.
symptoms: lots of bathroom breaks, a little back pain and some shooting pains in my pelvis region. nothing out of the ordinary.
weight gain: 3 lbs.
what i miss: lately...nothing. :)
fears/concerns: i'm anxious for our anatomy screening at 18.5 weeks (feb. 1). the big ultrasound when we get to see m&m on the big screen for a while. just hoping we have a healthy one.
highlight of the week: ok, maybe i'm crazy but i swear i am feeling a little movement. let me explain. if i lay really still, i sometimes feel a fleeting little tap on the right sight of my lower belly. right where my doc always finds the heartbeat. it isn't often and certainly isn't strong, but i really don't think it's gas.
