Size of baby: fig, 1.8-2.3 inches
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I gained 1.1 lbs this past week and so my overall weight loss is down to 4.5 lbs. I was feeling a lot better this week and I was eating unhealthy foods so I expected a bump in weight.
Maternity Clothes: No and my normal clothes are mostly loose. But I have to be careful now because my bump or gut are noticeable so I want to hide it. Last time I started wearing maternity clothes at week 16 because that is when I bought them.
Sleep: I'm drinking too much water too close to bed and then lately have been waking up to pee 3 or 4 times. It's ridiculous. I'm also having issues falling back to sleep after dealing with Ella. She has had crap sleep all week. At least twice she was up for 2 hours or more in the night. I am not getting nearly enough sleep.
What I miss: Working out as hard. I'm so weak now. It's hard to do some of the same stuff I could do before. When I run, I run slower. I miss working out as often but haven't been able to fit it in. This lack of sleep is what's stopping it. Also Ella slept on me for like 5 hours so I was stuck doing nothing.
Cravings: Nothing yet.
Aversions: I might have to say that I don't have any aversions now.
Symptoms: I notice my sense of smell but this time around I'm only noticing bad smells. I miss smelling the wonderful fresh fruit at the store. I am tired. My stomach is getting upset some nights but not so bad anymore.
Best moment this week: nothing really. We were sick. Ella's sleep was crap. I guess I got to shop for some clothes for a half hour while Ella was at preschool. Sadly that is the best thing but it was also pretty nice.
Looking forward to: Actually telling people. My next doctor appointment on March 2. Actually I have 2 that day so I'm also stressing.
Exercise: I ran, did 2 workout videos, did push-ups daily, and went for 1 walk.
Same this time: I gained weight both times. My sleep is crap. My dreams are pretty vivid.
Different from last time: I was still lightheaded last time and I'm mostly not now. I'm so glad I'm not now! I was sick this time and last time I wasn't. I'm happy that I'm exercising this time. I wish it was more though.
