14 weeks

(Today's post will be all about pregnancy. If you don't feel like reading about that right now, I completely understand. Hope to see you again soon.)

Total Weight Loss/Gain: Down 7-8 lbs from what I weighed the morning before our embryo transfer.  My weight loss finally leveled off in the past two weeks.  I'd feel better if I were gaining, but I'll take it.

Maternity Clothes:  No. Although I weigh less now than I've weighed in years, my weight is distributed differently, so a couple of pairs of my pants put uncomfortable pressure on my lower abdomen now.

Stretch marks: I've had stretch marks for years from growth spurts and weight gain. I don't have any new ones related to pregnancy yet.

Sleep: I'm sleeping OK these days.  I am still pretty tired but *maybe* not the paralyzing fatigue I've had. . . or maybe I've just had a few good days?

Movement:  I've seen them moving on my ultrasounds but haven't felt movement yet.

Cravings/Aversions:  I still have many, many food aversions and continue have a bad taste in my mouth for no apparent reason.  I have found that I've been craving salty foods lately, which is unusual for me.

Gender: Don't know yet, too early.  (Yes, we have a "guess.")

Symptoms: I still have nausea when I don't take my Zo.fran and heartburn when I skip Zantac. My breasts are sore/sensitive, especially the nipples. I am much more tired than usual.

What I miss:  Having energy. Being able to enjoy food. Seeing my friends.  (My lack of energy and food intolerances have made me a virtual hermit apart from going to the office.)

What I look forward to:  My nausea going away!  Please?
Moods: Generally good.

Milestones:  We made it to the second trimester!

Medical concerns:  None so far.

Sex?:  Yeah, we did it.  Nothing bad happened.  :-)

  4. Congrats on making it to the second tri! Don't worry about your weight loss. You'll catch up when you feel better - which I hope is very soon!
