4 Weeks (April)
How many weeks: 4
Size of baby: Poppy Seed
Total Weight Gain/Loss: down 1.9 lb I weigh myself daily. Trying to figure out what to use as the baseline weight was trickier. The baseline weight I'm using is 136.5. I think that's what I should use based on what I remember a friend saying. I was hovering 134-135 for a few weeks earlier but I popped back up for what should be the start of the weight.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely not yet but all my normal clothes have had trouble fitting for the past 6 months or so. Pretty soon I can at least blame that on something instead of just getting fat.
Gender: Not yet
Movement: Not yet
Sleep: I have no idea. What would have been week 3, I stayed up until 5 am, 6am, and 4am just because. I have no real reason to go to sleep or wake up early since I don't work so this is a tough one. But Thursday night still in week 3), I slept 10 or so hours and slept until 1 PM.
What I miss: pepperoni on my salads. But I might not even have missed that if we didn't go to Trader Joe's to buy some stuff for salads and I didn't put any on mine.
Cravings: Nothing yet.
Aversions: Nothing yet.
Symptoms: Nothing yet.
Best moment this week: The positive pregnancy test
Looking forward to: Actually telling people.
Exercise: The same as I had been doing. I actually ran less (way less) because of my plantar fasciitis. Running, biking, and weights.
I know a lot of people do these types of weekly updates while pregnant and I'm not sure of the official way to count or post but I will be attempting to write them on the last day of the week mentioned. I already take a daily picture (but the old site is down and my newer one isn't really up to date) but I am trying to decide if I should find the same thing to wear in every picture like Merrick did or just post a daily picture from the side in any outfit like Jen did.
OK I Decided that my posts will be for the beginning of the week versus the end.
(That picture is from my daily picture the day I found out. I sure look happy.)
This is the first of my weekly posts. I wrote these as the weeks happened but didn't post them until I was further along.
