How far along? 11w
Total weight gain: lost 6 lbs.
Maternity clothes? the weight loss has affected my waistline, for sure. I still need some roomier shirts for the "girls" and I can't comfortably wear a belt anymore, but I can still get into regular, non-maternity pants.
Sleep: I've been sick the last week plus, so I've been taking Tylenol Cold & Flu PM. Due to the sleeping aid in the medicine, I'm sleeping through the night wonderfully.
Best moment this week: Seeing the heartbeat of Chicklet again. It was a healthy, steady 162 bmp.
Movement: I'm hesitant to say so, because in my head I know it's not possible, but there have been a couple moments where I've thought, "huh, that's a familiar sensation."
Gender: On the fence. The more I think about it, I don't care -- I just want healthy. I'm sure there are pros and cons to both genders.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: A "pretty" bump. I've always sported a nice, smooth, round baby bump. Now, it's smooth and round, but also black and purple (from the injections). Vanity at it's finest: wanting prettiness where no one sees.
What I am looking forward to: Feeling better. As I mentioned, I've been sick with waht I thoguth was just a cold. Turns out, it might be bronchitis or even pneumonia. I'm on two new prescriptions, and go back to Dr. M in a week for an evaluation and possible chest X-Ray. (I've either pulled something badly, or cracked a rib.)
Weekly Wisdom: Rest when Chicklet's Brother rest. The laundry will get done eventually, but there is only so much longer that I can take advantage of afternoon naps.
Milestones: For the first time in any one of my pregnancies, my baby is measuring ahead -- by almost a whole week. If this continues at my next u/s, my EDD will be changed to -- get this -- 5/19/10.
