Okay. So, I realize I’m REALLY slacking in this whole “updating the blog thing.” In all honesty, I just don’t feel up to it. This first trimester has seriously kicked my butt. I feel awful complaining about it, because I don’t have Hyperemesis, and there are people who are much more sick than I’ve been, but I feel like complete crap. I have been MUCH more sick this pregnancy than I ever was with Lincoln. Maybe it’s because I have him to take care of, or maybe it’s just that no two pregnancies are the same. Whatever it is, I’m ready for the second trimester and some energy!! I feel like such a slacker mom lately. Lincoln and I have been reading lots of books, playing on the couch, and watching movies :::sigh::: Oh well. You do what you have to do! Thankfully, the weather has been cooperative, and we’ve been able to venture outside. The fresh air does us both good!
I did pregnancy surveys when I was pregnant with Lincoln. I’m not promising these are happening every week, and they most certainly did not with Lincoln, but today you are getting one. So, here we go…
How far along? 11 weeks 4 days…but who’s counting?
Weight gain/loss: +3 pounds
Maternity clothes? Absolutely pants!
Stretch marks? None.
Sleep? Sleep is glorious, HOWEVER, I’m pretty much exhausted all the time. I cannot get enough hours consecutively at night. I’m waking up 2-3 times to pee, and I can never fall back asleep right away. Pretty annoying.
Best moment this week? Hearing the heartbeat at my appointment today!
Food cravings: Fruit, lemonade, buffalo chicken dip!
Gender: We will find out the end of June.
Belly button in or out? In. But I know it will go flat soon.
Movement? Nothing I can feel yet.
What I miss? Not being nauseous and tired all the time.
What I’m looking forward to: Next weeks first trimester ultrasound!!
Milestones: Almost in the second trimester!!!
I promise, I’ll have bump photos to add to these posts soon. Because, with this being my second pregnancy, I already look pregnant. Wow.
