How big is baby: A banana at 6 1/2 inches. Over half a foot!
Weight gain/loss: The last two weeks have not been kind to me and I’ve managed to put on an additional 4lbs, for a total 9lb weight gain. I’m glad to be gaining, just not so quickly and close together!
Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any.
Sleep: I haven't been able to sleep really deep lately and I hate it.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I’m still noshing on pickles, Claussen pickles that is and we’re currently out of them! I managed to still eat pretty paleo friendly last week, including Thanksgiving, but I think I just ate tooooooo much. This would definitely explain why heartburn made it’s return so early.
Movement: Baby and I are getting to know each other with more movement every day!
What I'm worrying about: Our financial game plan to get me home. Tony and I have some work to do, tightening the belt, pinching the pocket book and all the good like. My brother’s wedding cost us a dime, so November was out, Christmas this month and a trip to the Dells in January, but we’ve got to stay on track and pay down that debt!
What I'm loving: Daily letting it sink in further that I’m going to have a daughter!
Symptoms: Heartburn. Blech. Also my stomach just popped with the additional 4 lb weight gain!
What I'm looking forward to: I took advantage of a few online sales and can’t wait until my new maternity jeans come in! I finally bit the bullet and just wore the too big Old Navy ones and they are absolutely comical on me. They’re just too big!
