Still sick. Still tired. Actually the tired feeling is starting to leave. I wish the sick feeling would go with it. In fact, I've been up every night this week right around 3-4am. I'm awake enough to watch about 30 minutes of TV before I fall back asleep.
I feel bad for Chris because I totally lay in bed and turn the TV on but I know if I get up and go to the family room then I will REALLY be awake. I offered to let him sleep in the guest bedroom but he says it doesn't bother him. I think he might be lying.
I do think it's a little early for my body to practice losing sleep. I have a good 6 more months of relatively sound sleep and I want it! I know all too well what happens when the baby is on the outside.
I don't know how it's possible but these are my regular jeans?!? Granted, they are unbuttoned but at least they zip this week. Probably has something to do with the fact that I'm now down 3 pounds since getting pregnant. I'm thinking it was a good thing I had some holiday jolly still left when I got pregnant so I'm not losing jiggle that's vital to my health - just a few extra holiday desserts I suppose.
Size of baby: Baby T2 is now the size of a lime!
Major Developmental Milestones: Fingers and toes are no longer webbed and tiny tooth buds are forming.
Gender: Still saying girl. So much so that I've started planning a girl nursery. But the more I thought about it the more I realized that there still is a 50% chance it's a boy in there. Hopefully we will be able to find out in another month or so.
Cravings: I am so over the idea of eating. But if I don't eat every 2 hours then I am sick sick sick! I'm still big on grapes and I have rekindled my love with the 9:30am bagel and cream cheese from last pregnancy. (Probably my most favorite post ever written. And yes, it's really about a bagel.) So stinkin' good. I've also been eating alot of cereal lately. We've eaten out so much these past 6 weeks that nothing sounds good so more often than not I will just have a bowl of cereal. It's fast, easy, and something I can actually stomach when I feel sick.
Best Moment this week: 2 moments this week. The first was scoring some maternity pants from Gap on mega-sale on Monday. Yes, maternity pants are already happening. Insert sad face. But it's more for comfort than necessity at this point.
The 2nd moment wasn't exactly the best but I had my first glucose tolerance test on Wednesday. (My OB does it twice - once in the 1st trimester and again at 28 weeks.) I was convinced it wasn't going to go well since I eat before I even get out of bed in the morning and I had to fast. And sit at the lab for 2 hours. And have 3 blood draws. Which makes it 4 blood draws in 24 hours since I had my genetic lab work done Tuesday afternoon. #humanpincushion The good news is I survived it and actually didn't feel sick at all the whole morning.
The afternoon was a different story. I blame it on the glucose drink. It's like 75g of straight sugar. How could you not feel crappy after drinking it?!?! Another plus is that it's no longer orange flavored but clear and tastes like a flat Sprite. I'll take it.
What I am looking forward to: We have our 12 week ultrasound next Tuesday and I can't wait. I've been so spoiled this pregnancy - getting to see baby every 2 weeks for the past 6 weeks (at 6, 8, and almost 10 weeks pregnant). I don't know how I'm going to make it all the way to the 20 week ultrasound from here on out!
