Baby Update #2

I had a visit today with my doc…the one that delivered Lily. Can I just say I love her and her staff of nurses? They all made me feel very welcome back into their office. I got to hear the heartbeat for the first time! It was just a beatin’ at 173. Only 8 more weeks until we find out the gender!

How far along? 11 weeks

Baby bump? A little one 🙂

Maternity clothes? No

Total weight gain? LOST 4 pounds!!! And I only know this because I went to the doc today. Don’t expect me to be standing on that awful scale every week.

Cravings: A perfectly steamed hot dog ballpark-style (ya know, all wrapped warmly in foil) with ketchup and mustard. Chocolate milk…but that’s nothing new. Ice cold water.

Food that nearly makes me vomit when I think about it: Coffee or any other hot drink.

Symptoms: The nausea is going away as long as I eat something every 3-4 hours. Exhaustion. Last night was the first night for me to sleep through the night in 6ish weeks.

Sleep: See above 😦

Movement: I know it’s super early, but I want to say I felt a little movement 2 nights ago. Not sure.

Gender: Lily is consistently hoping for 2 brothers. If we have one boy, she will only be half way disappointed. If we have one girl, she will be really disappointed.

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: Caffeine, not because I depend on it. I’m craving cold drinks all the time I would just really like an ice cold Diet Coke.

Best moment this week: Moving into the house that will be the home to our new baby. Hearing Lily randomly say, “Thank you God for our new house.” Lily’s bedtime prayers for the baby.Oh yeah, and when she lifted up my shirt to say hey to baby and wiped a booger on my belly. That was nice. 

Biggest Challenge: Finding energy to unpack this house.
