Size of Baby: Baby M is the size of an avocado and weighs 3.5 ounces.
Gender: We find out next week!!
Weight Gain: I am up 4 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. Side note: This is based on my friendlier at home scale. We had a doctor's appointment this afternoon in which the scale showed a completely different number. I believe the weight gain is still the same based on the doctor's scale starting weight. It has always baffled me why there is a significant difference between at home vs doctor office weights!
Maternity Clothes: I find myself gravitating toward dresses and loose tops. I am still fitting into most of my non-maternity pants using an elastic to expand the waist.
Nursery: Looking forward to start planning next week.
Symptoms: Still feeling more like my pre-pregnancy self in regards to energy level and endurance. I was able to go on a short run this past weekend and it felt great! I have experienced some crazy dreams this week thanks to my vivid imagination mixed with pregnancy hormones.
Sleep: I have been waking up 2x night to use the restroom. After I get up, it is hard to go back to sleep.
Cravings: Solved my baked potato craving with a trip to McAllisters where I devoured a veggie baked potato. I am loving some sort of dessert after dinner each night. I typically fix myself a small bowl of ice cream to enjoy on the couch.
What I Miss: Enjoying a cold glass of Moscato with dinner.
Exercise: I got in several long walks plus one short run. I also got in 4 Pure Barre classes this week.
Best Moments: My cousin who had her son two years ago sent up two boxes of maternity clothes for me to borrow. I am so thankful not to have to buy many clothing items!
