Morning Sickness: Much better. I don't think I threw up this week. That was last week, when Elizabeth was here. And the nausea is much better in the morning.
Energy: Well, I think we are headed up. But last Monday I fell asleep like three times during the day and slept right through my Al-Anon meeting! Oops. So, I get tired. But I am getting in some days where I go for hours and keep it up.
Weight: Gained a pound! 131.8
Belly: I feel like it was so huge the day of these pictures and then went down a little bit. Definitely can't suck it in anymore, and it doesn't flatten out all the way when I am on my back. So it is official! I love how round its getting. Yay! Looking less fat and more pregnant!
Things I Did: Okay, well as I am writing this blog I am feeling really happy and upbeat. But I did spend the day with an itty bitty brand new baby, Felicia! Ooo she is so beautiful. Nothing like staring at a tiny little curled up person and listening to their little sounds. That really made my whole week! Plus her mommy Sarah's wonderful company is super high quality. It can make up for a cluster of frustrations.
My downer is the rush of hormones I have been getting lately! Once I get into a mood, its hard to get myself out of it, even though I can hear my mind thinking ridiculous thoughts and I know they're ridiculous, it takes me a great deal longer to calm down and distract myself than usual.
I'm starting to love being pregnant. The heartburn went away, and was replaced by hip and pelvis pain. I have been having some cramping, but I think its ligaments stretching. I mean, look at me! Those ligaments are stretching, for sure. I have an appointment on Tuesday with my OB and we are going to try and see the gender. I can't wait. Its so soon and it feels like forever. Plus I am afraid of getting my hopes up and then the baby won't cooperate or something. But really, really excited to know the gender!!
