Total weight gain: WTF. The scale says 10 pounds. Last week was only 5.5!?!
Food of the week (a.k.a. size of baby): Lemon
Pregnancy signs (mostly TMI): The God of Trimesters must be confused; I’ve been nauseous every day from about 9 to noon. Also, those pesky vaginal pains are back. Acne is still out of control. And, I have noticeable bump. Not sure how much is baby or burrito, but it’s there.
Worry of the week: What if the baby isn’t alive anymore? It’s tough when you can’t feel anything.
Maternity clothes: Can’t do the dress pants with the side clasps anymore. Tried to keep the two sides together with a paper clip, and my pants kept bursting open at work when it would fall off. In other news, got even more maternity clothes from a friend.
Weekly sins: Exercise? What’s that? (see Total Weight Gain)
What I am looking forward to: Going to do Pregtastic tomorrow!
Milestones: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he’ll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you’re having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.
Quote of the Week:
Me (while writhing in bed with a cold): I’m sooooo sick. I can’t take any cold medicine. Ughhhhhhhhh.
Charles: Well, I never take cold pills when I’m sick
Me: Well you don’t have a baby inside of you sucking out your life forceSHUTYOURMOUTH
