Size of the nugget: Cucumber
Weight gain: I think I am still on track fora lb a week. I have been avoiding the scale since it’s been the holidays but I did get on this morning and I’ve maintained my weight pretty well. I continued to work out over the break although I had to cancel a session because I was feeling pretty cruddy. I can’t say I have been eating perfectly this past week but I am really trying to watch my portions and get some healthy stuff in there.
Energy level: It’s been back up this past week, thank goodness. The holidays went by way too quickly and I only crashed one night. I was out by 9 pm. My family has been here and have helped us out so much with Gray and the house that it’s given me a chance to actually rest even though I don’t want to. I am making myself take breaks these days.
Morning sickness: I think I can take this off the list. It’s pretty safe to say that I’m going to luck out and not have any sickness with this one either. Fingers crossed. I probably just jinxed myself. I can however replace this one with back pain. I definitely have some killer back pain these days. You can find me in pigeon pose or downward facing dog quite often in my living room.
Cravings: Not craving pickles so much anymore. Sweets are numero uno right now. And soups. I really want soups. Maybe it’s the cold weather.
Gender: Still a girl.
Mood: I’ve been really happy. How can I not be? It’s the holidays and my family is here. I did have some “moments” though this week where my mom told me I “need to take a chill pill.” Yep, she’s telling me, I wasn’t telling her for once. Since then, I’ve been pretty good.
Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants are my bff. I may continue to wear them after I have her. They are so comfortable.
Movement: She is moving more but still not much when I compare her to Grayson’s movement. I will go all day and finally sit down and realize I haven’t felt her all day. Then she will give me a nice big kick. Another difference is sometimes I think I can feel her actually moving, not just kicking or punching but actually rolling around. All I got from Grayson was nice big jabs to the ribs so this feeling is a bit odd.
Sleep: I have been passing out. I know it’s because I have been nonstop with the holidays. I do wake up a few times a night because I can’t breathe or my throat hurts because of the crazy weather but other than that, I’ve been sleeping pretty darn well.
