Weight Gain: 22 lbs so far.
Baby is the size of: A medium-ish head of cabbage.
Maternity clothes? I hate waistbands...
Rings on or off? Still on!
Sleep: I wish...
Belly Button: Still a half-n-halfie.
Exercise: Need more! I felt pretty rotten at the end of the week and didn't exercise (other than walking to/from work) on Thursday or Friday.
Food cravings: Spicy cheese and tortilla chips; apples.
Movement: He apparently likes the symphony... and sugar makes him hyper. Good to know.
Best moment of the week: Writing a letter to the baby. One of the homework assignments from our childbirth class was to write a short letter to the baby describing what we're feeling right now and what we're looking forward to. It was really neat!
Symptoms: Fatigue, back pain... And I felt really goofy after my glucose test... headache, sweats, nausea, shakiness. It got better after a few hours, but I didn't feel back to "normal" until Friday evening and my test was on Wednesday at lunch time.
Mood? Can you say cranky? And did I mention, really unmotivated to do my dishes? Oh wait, that's all the time (the dishes part, that is).
Blessings of the week: I passed the glucose test! Thanks to all those that prayed I would pass the test the first time through. I didn't want to have to re-do it!
I learned ... I need to practice relaxing more often. I apparently don't know how to. I'm trying to learn to be more like M... he's the King of Chill.
Looking forward to: Our upcoming weekend getaway.
