Baby size: An éclair. Fresh, not frozen.
Aversions: Sigh, fish. All of the fresh salmon I purchased Week 6 and then had to immediately freeze will still have to wait. Why can’t I not like biscuits or something unhealthy? Also, showering. That is SO exhausting.
Cravings: Diving well into my 5 pound bag of cotton candy salt water taffy like there’s no tomorrow. Thank you Amazon! Going back to drinking a little coffee in the mornings…yay! Still no strong cravings though. Is that normal??
Morning all-day sickness easing up a bit. I went TWO days this week without having to take my anti-nausea medication!! Woop!!
Weight gain: 1.0 pounds from last week.
Maternity clothes: Well, I went to work out last week…and had the same clothes in my workout bag from the last time I went…which was 8 weeks ago. Let’s just say that I really need to invest in some larger workout clothes. Something uber stretchy. I think people had the impression that I just went on a biscuit-eating binge for 8 weeks. It’s really hard to tell I’m pregnant right now and not just pudgy. Well, I’m that too.
Looking forward to: Feeling the baby move. I SWEAR I felt a flutter. I pressed my hand on my abdomen and what I felt was definitely NOT gas. In my head, I picture the baby saying “hell, woman, stop smooshing me!” and giving me a little baby flutter kick. Good times. AND my inny belly button has started to pop out a bit!! For the first time in my life I can see the mysterious innards of my belly button.
