Well – we are officially losers. We spent new years at home on the couch – and not even fully awake. The night started out pretty well, I was feeling good enough to go out to dinner and we had a gift card (score!) so we went to a really awesome little place called the Front Room. The food was awesome and I ate almost a full regular person meal. And then I totally paid for it – curled in the fetal position on the couch all night long with horrible stomach cramps. I managed to wake up (and sit up) for the midnight countdown, and then (mercifully) fell asleep immediately after. I guess our days of wild partying (if those ever existed) are over for the next 18 years – or at least the next 8 months.
In other news – this week marks 11 weeks. It seems really hard to believe that I could be almost done with the entire first trimester. I guess this is really happening? It’s been setting in a little more recently – I even started browsing cribs and gliders on craigslist. After getting a sneak peak of my friend Margie’s nursery (which is already DECKED out with furniture, an entire dresser and closet of adorable clothes, socks, headbands, diapers, etc.) I kind of freaked out that we have NOTHING. I know we have time. But I stil freak out. Also – I got to feel Margie’s baby kick (she’s 24 weeks) which was so bizarre because like – a real human is in there! WHAT??!!
Anyway there’s not much else to report this week – so I’m going to steal this cute idea from another pregnancy blog and in addition to the weekly belly pics (right now I’m pretty sure you’re just looking at the pudge from that bag of reeses peices I shouldn’t have eaten) I’ll be updating this little “pregnancy questionnaire” with how I’m feeling as I keep
getting fatter and fatter growing. Enjoy…
Total weight gain: -5lbs
Maternity clothes? nope – just a lot of days in leggings
Stretch marks? not yet…
Sleep: Decent, although I still wake up a lot throughout the night which is not like my regular self
Best moment this week: Food is starting to sound/smell a little more appealing – and I got an extra day (new years) to sleep in!
Miss Anything? Drinking on new years, eating hot dogs, eating turkey sandwiches, feeling not-nauseous
Food cravings: Gummy peach rings, tic tacs, doritos, strawberries
Anything making you queasy or sick: everything not listed above
Gender: no clue – dan thinks boy
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: getting slightly better but still lots of nausea, light stretching/cramping and my back has been sore from sleeping on my side 😦
Belly Button in or out? in (but belly button ring is out, per doctor’s advice)
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both, depends on how I’m feeling. Getting super emotional though – I cried at a flash mob video.
Looking forward to: Next week’s ultrasound, nausea going away and getting an actual bump instead of just pudge.
