Baby is the size of: A banana (approximately 6 to 6.5 inches)
Maternity clothes? Shhhh.... the denim skirt I'm wearing is NOT a maternity skirt. Scandalous... my fly is unzipped and the top is held together with a rubber band between the button and buttonhole. I never thought I would purposely leave my fly unzipped; that's usually one of those middle school horror stories. LOL. You do what you gotta do.
Sleep: This morning, I gave up. I got up at 7 a.m. and half laid/half sat on the couch with a blanket and dozed for another hour until M got up. It was nice to (sort of) lay on my back for a change.
Food cravings: Last night, it was marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. But mostly, it's been strawberries. Still. In fact, we bought a flat of fresh strawberries at the produce market today. MMMMMMmmmmmm..... 12 pints of strawberry awesomeness. I may or may not have eaten an entire pint in one sitting.
Movement: I'm noticing the baby is more active when I'm hungry!
Best moment of the week: Went on a date night out with the Hubby last night. Lasagna at Olive Garden, followed by a free concert. Yep, we're big spenders! It was fun to get dressed up. I haven't worn heels since November, so this was a big deal.
Fun fact: The baby practice swallowing by ingesting amniotic fluid. What I can't get over is that what I eat flavors the amniotic fluid, so the baby is tasting the same flavors I am since the tastebuds have now developed. This kid's gonna really like strawberries.
Symptoms: More emotional and forgetful.
Wedding rings on or off? On... except for today... I forgot to put them on this morning! EEK!
Mood? Somewhat anxious. I may be driving M nuts with all my questions. I just want to make sure he's happy and content! Thankfully, he's been very reassuring and understanding.
Looking forward to: Valentine's Day, and another ultrasound next week. Maybe we'll find out if this little one is a boy or a girl!
