How Far Along: 13 weeks and 5 days
Meds: All taken daily – Prenatal, Omega + DHA, Vitamin D 2000mg, Vitamin B12, Probiotic, Zofran (3 pills daily)
Honestly, I can barely get my prenatals down these days. They are making me nauseous but it isn’t so bad if I take them with food. I had to increase my Zofran from 1 pill a day to 2 pills a day to the max 3 pills a day. 😦
Baby is the size of: a kiwi
Best Moment This Week: Meeting my 7 week old nephew, smelling that newborn smell and knowing that I get “one of my own” in 6 months.
Total Weight Gain: +5 lbs – did not weight myself this week.
Maternity Clothes: Maxi skirts, leggings and sweat pants are my best friends. I have ANOTHER business trip this week. Will be a challenge to find semi-dressy outfits that I can fit into from my own closet (my goal is to NOT buy a bunch of maternity clothes I won’t wear on a regular basis).
Symptoms: NAUSEA! Ughhhhhhhhh. Flying did me in. On Friday, I puked on my one layover and then again once I arrived at my sister’s house. I’ve also realized that I can’t handle the smell of meat cooking or coffee (cue major puking episode). I don’t puke excessively, but I do puke at least 1-2 times a day. I also puked after I landed yesterday and remained nauseous for the rest of the day. I upped my Zofran to 3x a day, but I’m still struggling. It always seems like the “miracle drugs” work perfectly for a few days. Then, my system gets too used to them and the nausea comes back.
Sleep: Oh I missed my snoogle! Still having crazy dreams and getting up to pee throughout the night.
Food Cravings: Kraft dinner, bagels and cream cheese, strawberries
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth, driving, flying, smell of meat cooking, smell of coffee,
Movement: Too early.
Stretch Marks: Nothing new.
Baby Bump: I’ve decided to call my bump “THE BLUMP” until this B belly decides to round out.
Gender Prediction: BOY!
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: Combo of both.
Purchases for baby: Nothing this week, but I did start on a baby registry (which is more my own personal shopping list).
Miss Anything?: Enjoying a meal, sleeping in my own bed (I only get 2 nights home out of 7 this week), salad, having nicely done hair – I’m just too damn lazy/nauseous to blow dry it these days.
Looking forward to:
IF Whenever this dreaded nausea subsides! Our anatomy/gender scan on May 28. ❤
