How Big is Baby: Baby is the size of a raspberry! The Bump says " Now she weighs in (yay!) at about .04 ounces and measures about .63 inches. This week, she's growing about a milimeter each day. You can't feel it yet, but she's moving those arms and legs like crazy! Her fingers and toes are now only slightly webbed, and her tail (yes, she had one) is gone. Fun fact: your baby's taste buds are now forming."
Weight Gain: I didn't weigh myself this week. I'm already feeling too fat, I didn't want to have to face the number on the scale.
Gender: Chris and I both think it's a boy, but we'd be happy with either sex and I would LOVE to have a girl.
Names: We have both of our names picked out, but I don't want to put them out there yet. Maybe in a few weeks.
Symptoms: Just really tired, that's why this is 2 days late. I haven't been wanting to really do anything.
Sleep: I've been sleeping really good, probably because I'm really tired.
Movement: too early for that, but I can't wait!
Maternity Clothes: I ordered some shorts from Old Navy, but they haven't come yet. I also received my bella band in the mail, but I haven't used it yet. I wear scrubs all day at work so those are still fine and then once I come home I just wear anything with an elastic waist, mostly yoga pants, or dresses.
Food Cravings: I'm not really craving anything this week.
Food Aversions: none
Stretchmarks: I'm pretty sure I'm going to be covered in stretchmarks. I already have a couple from when I had growth spurts when I was younger. They are super light and not not very noticeable, but I'm sure I'll be getting tons more. I already got a couple lately on my boobs from them growing so much!!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Our babymoon next Thursday!
What I Miss: I miss not feeling like a whale. I can't wait til I have a bump and not just bloat. I feel so fat lately.
Next Drs Appointment: July 5th! We are coming back from our vacation July 4th so it will make the time go fast before the appointment. We will be hearing the heartbeat for the first time at this appointment!
Best Moment of the Week: My first dr's appointment was last week! I got a bunch of stuff and it made it seem more real. I will do a post about that before next Monday.
I definitely look thicker in these pictures! I need to really start working out so I don't feel so flabby. I'm only 8 weeks. I feel like I shouldn't even be looking bigger yet.
