It's Wednesday!! Today I'm going to start with my pregnancy update, then give you a brief rundown of the day. I'm finally in the second trimester!!
How Far Along: 14 weeks, 26 weeks to go!
Size of baby: It's 3.5 inches, the size of a lemon, approx. 1.5 oz.
Weight Gain/Loss: A few days I was at 0 lost/gained, but now I'm back at -1 lb. Oh well.
Body Changes: No stretch marks, hopefully won't get any. I sort of look like I have a belly!
Gender: It's a baby! I'll take guesses for boy/girl. Most are saying boy right now.
Movement: The baby is swimming around but I won't feel it for a few more weeks, at least. I'm not exactly sure what I'm expecting to feel, either.
Sleep: I've been sleeping great, though it's been hard to sleep on my side so much. It's only going to get worse.
What I miss: Exercise. I know, I can exercise, but I've been super lazy about it.
Cravings: Pizza, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, corn dogs... junk food. Yum.
Symptoms: Horrible acne, some mild cramping from things expanding, so tired, always hungry. I'm a whiner. ;)
Best Moment this week: My excitement over my pants fitting tighter!! My regular clothes fit if I suck in, but it's much more comfortable to use a hairtie.
The last time I spoke to Brandon, which was last night shortly after posting my blog, I told him the good news: no more berets! He disappeared to spread the news to all the guys. Everyone is so excited! We all hated those berets. Good riddance.
You know what, time has kind of stalled. Each day we're trying to find stuff to do as we wait our turn for the guys to come home. Today I went to story time at the library and a bubble show with Christina. Surrounded by kids, none of them my own... it was fun though! I really enjoyed the bubbles and it got me out of the house.
Tomorrow I'm finally going to put up Brandon's welcome home sign. Ugh, I'm so ready for him to be home! It's horrible watching all my friends get their guys back before mine ;). But like I said today to Christina, someone has to be last. Don't worry, he won't be LAST! Come home, Brandon!!
