Maternity Clothes: Same. The fall weather has necessitated that I wear more maternity pants, and I still hate them. I have a pair of stretchy waist maternity jeans that don't have the big elastic belly that I like pretty well.
Sleep: Same. I am sleeping about as well as I usually do. I do get some normal back and hip pain from sleeping on my side that alleviate with a pillow between my knees.
Best Moment of this week: No new news but just thankful to find a healthy heartbeat to help alleviate my constant worrying.
Movement: Still not feeling much although I think I have felt an occasional little kick which I hope means the placenta is starting to move up and out of the way.
Food cravings: Same. I am still just enjoying food right now. I don't think I have been as hungry in the past couple of weeks as in the first trimester so my appetite appears to be leveling out as well.
Food Aversions: Nothing. I seem to like it all. I actually haven't suffered from heartburn yet which is nice.
What I miss: I think what I miss most is the peace of mind that comes with pregnancies when you have never suffered a loss. Most people really take that for granted.
Gender: We told. See previous post! We are adding another adorable baby boy to our little nest. Should be lots of fun!
Symptoms: Still mostly hunger and some light nausea usually brought on by gagging or bad smells (hmmm, Cocoa!).
What I'm looking forward to: Just making it through the next 18 to 20 weeks safely and holding our sweet little baby in our arms and hearing those first cries!
Dear Baby M,
We are all so thankful that you are continuing to grow big and strong and can't wait to meet you in a few more months. You are going to be so loved by your two big brothers, your angel big sister, and your mommy and daddy.
