Size of baby: Baby is about 5 inches long and roughly the size of a grapefruit.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm up 6-7 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Just ordered a few more things online last week. And a funny note about maternity clothes. I had saved some things from when I was pregnant with Tyler, which was exactly 8 years ago. I had 2 friends over to help pack when we moved, and we actually pulled out that box. It was hilarious what we found--my how styles change in 8 years. Things were so much bigger then; I like the trend of more fitting tops this time around. I remember when I was pregnant before, my sister offered to lend me her maternity clothes, some of which were 8 years old. At that time, I thought everything she had was a tent. I think it's funny that I think the same thing now about my own 8 year old clothes.
Gender: Go in for the big ultrasound next week. Hoping to change the 90% sure it's a girl to knowing 100%.
Movement: A few flutters.
Sleep: Pretty good. I have had some insomnia, but most nights are good.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.
Cravings: Nothing specific, just food in general.
Symptoms: A few this week. First, I got a zit for the first time in forever. Second, let's just say I bought the big bottle of tums. And third, I've been having some vivid dreams, as opposed to never remembering my dreams. For example, last week I had a dream that my sister-in-law and I were in the hospital together. (I know a lot of people know this, but for those that don't, I share a due date with my sister-in-law, January 1. It is quite odd, since we both have struggled with infertility, and then each got pregnant on our own.) We were walking around, just having given birth. I was pushing both babies in a hospital bassinet, and I was desperately looking for someone with a camera because I wanted to post a picture on facebook. At least I have priorities.
Best moment this week: I love the second trimester--not too tired, not sick, not huge, just feeling good and getting excited.
And I must love you to include this wonderful, no make-up, late at night picture I made Dan take. I am loving my bump.
