Join me on this wonderful journey as our family goes from 3 to 4
Weight Gain: I've lost weight since finding out about this baby. At the last appointment I weighed 225 Starting weight: 232 (Can't believe I just admitted that).
Cravings: I haven't been craving much so far, just meat really. Last time with Leigha I remember it being hamburgers, but this time its pretty much any kind of meat. Also, like last time, if I crave it and actually manage to eat it, I don't want it any more.
Aversions: Almost all food. I can only eat something if i have a taste for it. Sadly this means Richard has been eating lots of hot dogs and pizzas while i've been sustaining on crackers and bread.
Symptoms: I don't really have any symptoms other than bad nausea. I don't remember it being like this with Leigha. Its also already uncomfortable sleeping on my stomach like I like to unless i prop myself up on one side.
I am loving: Getting waited on by Richard. He is very attentive and excited this time around. He is also very understanding about me feeling sick and not wanting to eat.
Sleep: Horriffic. I wake up at least 2 times during the middle of the night to use the bathroom and lately because of teething (I think) Leigha is waking up as well. I'm so tired I can't hardly stand.
I miss: My energy. My nausea has started to get a little better over the last couple of weeks, but my energy is still on a downhill spiral.
I am looking forward to: My next appointment on May 7th.
I'm spazzing about: Having a second baby and the labor and caring for a newborn and PPD and the rash that I developed with Leigha happening again. I'm just a worried mess.
Best moment this week: Nothing really this week other than Leigha took the Doppler that I bought and has figured out how to use it and has started to put it on my stomach.
Milestones: None yet that I can think of unless you count that the kidneys are now functioning.
Movement: Nothing yet.
It's a...: No clue!
Exercise: I did go with my new sister-in-law to a women's trade show at our convention center and walked around their new house to see it as its getting built. It was a fun afternoon and I got lots of walking in.
Diet: I'm just trying to eat something each day, and trying to make it a healthy choice.
Goals for the upcoming week: Start cleaning out the new baby's room which is currently being used as storage.
Weeks 10, 11, 12 with Leigha
