How far along: 13 weeks!
Size of Baby: Peach
Gender: We don’t know yet, but can not wait to find out!
Movement: Too early
Weight Gain: Nothing yet!
Sleep: Hit an all time low last week because of my lower back pain, so I finally broke down and called the chiropractor. Best decision I’ve made in a looong time. My pain is almost non-existent! Insert praise Jesus emoji hands here. I’m still generally uncomfortable sleeping on my side instead of my back, but what can you do.
Workouts: Slacked a little on these this week because it was super busy with work and cheer. Oh, and it was freaking COLD in the morning and by the afternoon my energy/motivation is just not there.
Maternity Clothes: Made a few more purchases this week but haven’t had to actually use them yet. It won’t be long now though, this belly is getting bigger by the day I think!
Symptoms: I really feel so much better this week. So much better that I could (and have) cry because I feel so much better. Yeah. So that’s two symptoms. I had almost zero nausea this week (only when I failed to eat at the correct time) and only get really tired maybe once throughout the day. Which is a huge step up from being so tired I could take a nap from sun-up to sun-down.
Cravings/Aversions: Still have zero desire to drink or smell coffee. I’m sure there are other aversions but nothing consistent. Craving sugar like never before! Trying not to give in to that one very often, though.
Missing Most: HIIT workouts. A good sweat with heavy breathing and feeling like I might pass out with no guilt! That is obviously frowned upon now! Oh, and a deli turkey sandwich.
Nursery: Lol. We still need to decide which room we are going to use! Office or man cave? I’m definitely leaning towards office right now…and then moving said office to the man cave. Sorry babe!
Nathan: I don’t think he will never forget the lesson he learned this week and it’s certainly not one that needs to be documented on the internet 😉
Best Part of the Week: A few things:
1) Settling on first and middle names for a boy and a girl!
2) Just generally feeling better! I’m going on a week-long business trip next week and I was really worried about how I would be able to handle it, but my energy is really up and I’m really encouraged. God’s timing, I’ll tell ya. I’m so grateful!
3) Having multiple conversations with Trey (my co-workers son who is 5) at work about the baby. He likes to bring “the baby” treats (Starbucks cakepops & Dove chocolate – heck yeah!) and at some point I said “Thank you so much for bringing that for me. That was so sweet of you” to which he responded “It wasn’t for you Wachel, it was for the baby!” So sorry He also came into the office another day and said “Uhhh, where’s the baby?!” It’s going to be a long six months for that guy!
Can’t Wait For: Finding out who is in there in (hopefully) just a few more weeks!
