Best Moment This Week: No more puking + first orgasm since before transfer. Yes, we held out for a LONG time. I’m happy to say I had no scares following the magical moment.
Total Weight Gain: Haven’t weighed myself this week.
Maternity Clothes: Last week, I used my Bella Band Basic with my regular jeans undone. It worked really well! Except on the 2nd day, I found the band was trying to roll up a bit. Just takes a bit of adjusting each time you stand up from sitting. Other than that, I’m still wearing regular clothes. I did purchase 2 maternity dresses for summer and a cute “Due in October” tank top.
Symptoms: Same as last week: Tired, sore nipples (the boob soreness has subsided a bit), NAUSEA! Last week was by far, my worst week for nausea. After not being able to keep anything down Wed-Thursday, I caved and got a prescription for Diclectin. I’m flying out for a business trip tomorrow and I did not want to be puking the entire time I am away. Let’s just say Diclectin and I are now friends. It totally eases my nausea until it’s almost time to take another pill, then I get the dry heaves again. I’ve been taking 1 pill in the morning, at noon and at bedtime.
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping INSANE amounts! The Diclectin really turned me into a zombie the first 24 hours I was on it. I slept for over 12 hours the first night and had a few naps the next day. Since then, the drowsiness is wearing off. I’ve also been having INSANE dreams. Do these continue the whole pregnancy?
Food Cravings: Cherry danishes, cheese croissants… still on the carb kick.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth, chicken, smell of urine in a public bathroom
Movement: Too early.
Stretch Marks: Nothing new.
Baby Bump: Barely there but continuously getting harder.
Gender Prediction: BOY!
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: Diclectin zombie = moody
Purchases for baby: Nothing – surprise again!
Miss Anything?: Having energy. vegetables.
Looking forward to: Our 12 week ultrasound… date STILL to be determined.
