Sorry for the radio silence around here guys! But since finding out I was pregnant back in June my energy level is non-existent. It’s slowly coming around so I thought I’d do my first bump update! And I sure have a bump already! Or bloat…
Baby’s Gestational Age: 14 weeks
Symptoms: SO many! Nausea, vomiting, heartburn. I’m a walking Pepto commercial!
Maternity Clothes: A few. I’ve been mixing in a few maternity pieces with my regular wardrobe. I bought a great pair of maternity leggings from Blanqi that I may live in for the next 6 months.
Gender: Unknown – finding out October 9th!
Sleep: Getting better. I usually fall asleep early (like 9pm early!) and wake up 4 times to pee throughout the night. Also, I have to have a mound of pillows around me to get comfortable.
Cravings: Carbs! Also, pickles. Regular pickles, Lays pickle chips, pickle flavored Pringles! Give me all the pickles!
Thinking Names: Henry John for a boy and Parker for a girl. We haven’t decided on a middle name for Parker yet. Maybe Grace, Ainsley, or Elaine.
Laughable Moments: I cried when I got back to my office and realized McDonald’s didn’t put pickles on my chicken sandwich. I asked for EXTRA pickles!
Hard Moments: See above laughable moment! These pregnancy hormones are no joke.
Nesting: UM no. I’ve barely had enough energy to keep the house clean!
Best Moments This Week: Hearing the baby’s heartbeat at the Dr’s office.
Looking Forward To: Finding out the gender on October 9th!
Movement: Maybe? I felt something weird on Saturday while sitting in the Starbucks drive-thru. It felt like there was an alien inside of me!
