This isn’t turning into an annoying blog. I promise. But I figured that someone might like the update, and I might regret it if I didn’t update. PLUS I feel like a lot of moms, especially ones that are further removed, get amnesia and try to act like they’ve never heard of whatever symptom you might be having.
How far along: 12 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Clementine.
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I’ve put on a few – like maybe 5ish the last time I checked? My boobs are absolutely gargantuan. I’m still waiting on a belly. So that folks aren’t just assuming that I’m bloated. Like I care though. I’m too tired to care.
Sleep: Constantly. I could sleep any time of the day.
Best moment this week: Zumba party – I felt great, and really felt a surge of energy.
Food cravings: I like pickle chips from Village Drafthouse. But since they’re fried, they’re kind of a kiss of death. One really really fun thing about pregnancy is that your digestion slows way down. Food that may upset you a smidge in real life, really have an adverse affect on you while pregnant. Beans and fried things do not feel good whatsoever.
Food aversions: I’ve been veg for a while. I have been eating some chicken and turkey, but it’s a little rough for me, because meat tastes pretty meaty. But the smell of cooking meat is disgusting to me. Red meat in particular smells bloody, and I think there’s a pretty good chance I won’t be eating that any time soon.
Symptoms: I’m just tired. But like I said, I think that’s starting to lift.
Looking forward to: Catching up on things. I always feel like there’s something else to be done. I don’t think as long as I live, that I will ever feel caught up. And more running, now that my energy is slowly seeping back in.
