How far along: 12 weeks 0 days - Cricket is the size of a plum!
Total weight gain/loss: According to the scale - 13-14 lbs. Eek. If you take away the 10 lbs they WANTED me to gain, 4 lbs. But I don't know how to count it.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Still have some shirts that fit, so that's a mixed bag. But pants are all maternity or stretchy.
Stretch marks: way too early for those! Keeping an eye on the puberty-induced ones, though. And have started the Cocoa Butter applications daily.
Sleep: Same old, same old. Tired all the time, but can't sleep 8 hours straight. It's a conundrum. I love naps.
Movement: way too early for that! But I can't wait :)
Cravings/Aversions: Cravings: For the most part it's just a matter of finding something I can tolerate. Aversions: Stinky odors, red meat, and whatever doesn't agree with me on any given day.
Gender: at this point, we have decided not to find out...let's see if we hold steadfast to that! DH says boy, I say girl.
Symptoms: Nothing new, though the BBs have stopped hurting. Still growing. To give you an idea, before we started treatement I could fit into a 32B. Bought a new bra the other day, just a smidge big to allow for growth, 38C. Yeah....Still vomiting if I'm not horizontal. Moving cars and flourescent lights are my enemy. Non-stop headache. And, as you know, constipation. LOL.
What I miss: Not a thing :)
What I look forward to: Passing the first trimester :), and actually LOOKING pregnant, as opposed to just like I've put on weight. This is starting to happen, and only 1 more week left in first tri. How is it going so fast??
Moods: Irritable beyond belief, interspersed with sappy crying.
Milestones: 12 weeks, which for many is end of first tri, but I count next week.
Medical Concerns: Still taking my Syn.throid at 50mcg. To be tested again next trimester. 8mg Zo.fran every 12 hours for nausea...ummm, yeah, it lessens it A BIT but I am still puking like a champ. Zo.loft 50 mg...hoping that helps again with my anxiety...which in turn should help with some other symptoms. Called the doctor yesterday after throwing up 5 times by 3:30 pm. Got the on-call guy, who talked about a Zo.fran pump. I don't think I'll do it. But I think the vomiting is here for the long haul.
Weekly Wisdom: I've got nothing this week. Honestly, not much has changed, so it's just a matter of same old.
Best moment this week: Free crib! Well, it needs repairs, and right now is functioning in pieces as fabulous doggy gates, but it's a crib nonetheless!
Worst moment this week: Still sick as a dog, worried I'm in that for the long haul.
Belly Pic: Oh, yeah, the bloat is back. Why is all the weight at belly button or higher when the baby is still so low? Seriously, all gas. LOL. I am going to be ENORMOUS.
