(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: I am still down about 5 lbs from the morning of transfer, but at least the scale is now moving up. I plan to discuss my lack of weight gain with my OB tomorrow at my appointment.
Maternity Clothes: I bought a few pairs of pants because, although I could still fit into many of my old pants, they were feeling a little uncomfortable on my abdomen. Haven't had to buy any maternity shirts yet.
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: OK. I'm trying to train myself to sleep on my left side, and that's been tough. I am getting up 1-2 times a night to pee.
Movement: They are moving but I haven't felt them yet.
Cravings/Aversions: My aversions are fewer than before, but I still have many. No real cravings.
Gender: We hope to find out in just a little over a week!
Symptoms: (To be clear, just providing information here, not complaining. . . ) Still more tired than usual, though not as tired as during the first trimester. My nipples are sore and sensitive and still have the bumps I described in my 16 weeks post. My nausea is better in that it is less severe most days and doesn't seem to last as long--I've only had to take one dose of Zofran in the past two weeks--but I'm still far from normal. I am hungry every 2-3 hours, whether nauseated or not, and even small meals leave me feeling as bloated as I would after Thanksgiving dinner. (Most of the day my upper abdomen is bigger than my "bump" because of all the bloating.) I still have occasional heartburn, but I've cut out Zantac and Prilosec. I don't perceive a pattern to which foods will make me feel worse than others, which is frustrating at times.
What I miss: Being able to eat what I want, whenever I want.
What I look forward to: Anatomy scan on 10/7.
Moods: Generally good.
Milestones: Hmm. I can't think of any since my 16 weeks post.
Medical concerns: None so far.
Sex?: Meh, not so much. In addition to my not feeling so great, MM was sick part of last week, too.
Misc: MM continues to be anxious and concerned about the babies. Before a wedding last weekend, while waiting for the outdoor ceremony to start, he meant to bring me a glass of lemonade and inadvertently brought me a margarita instead. (I realized it after the first small sip.) He was worried all through the wedding. He also thought I shouldn't be doing the macarena at the reception because it might "disturb" the babies.
Also, MM and I went on our first date four years ago today! Awwww. . . .
