How far along; 18 weeks...is it bad that it's still totally surreal?
Weighty Issues: most recent dr appt says up total of eleven, next update on Jan 18th.
Sleep: is good when I can get it, lately I wake up to pee at 4am and can't fall back asleep.
Best Moment this week: I heard this song that says "I will love you for you, not for the things that you will do or the person you will become, I will love you for you." and I cried because I will love my child for who they are (unlike my childhood).
Food Commentary: I've been craving salads which is a nice change. However I've found when I'm hungry I really have to eat right then or I seriously turn into the "I'm dying of hunger" lady. Yeah it's a bit intense.
Maternity Clothes: Yep, my pre-preg shirts have started to hang off the bottom of my belly in a weird way.
Labor Signs: God Forbid! it's far far far too early for that business!!!! [I don't plan on changing this one until at least 36+ weeks. ]
Belly Button In or Out: It's still in but taking on a new shape, very strange to experience! I also think it's more shallow now, isn't it a bit early for that?!
What I miss: Zit cream! (I can't find any that work that doesn't have no-no ingredients, could I use them anyway? Probably, but I choose to whine instead.) And working out, I'm starting to get the itch! I've called and emailed all the pre-natal yoga etc places I can think of and NO ONE has gotten back to me! That's it, I miss the gym too much, I'm a smart enough girl to do this!! First [pregnant] workout tonight!!!!
What I'm looking forward to: 7 days until our anatomy scan!! I can't wait to see the bambino and hear he/she is healthy and wonderful, and find out baby's gender! :)
Weekly Wisdom: Try to enjoy the good moments because apparently all-day-sickness can come back whenever it wants to. Also pamper yourself, pedicure here I come.
Weekly WTF: WTF hormones! I'm super crabby one moment and the next I crying tears of joy, yikes!
Nesting: I've started organizing my ideas for the nursery into "to buy now", "to get soon" and such categories! I have to admit it's going to be hard to restrain myself after our anatomy scan!
Milestones: I'm back to feeling like each day is a milestone.
