My baby this week: size of a plum
Weight Gain: 1lb. Exercise routine has gotten a bit better. But still room for improvement. I am struggling a bit with this. I lost 12lbs this summer before IVF#1. I put 3 back on with the IVFs and now, I find myself paranoid about gaining too much pregnancy weight. Of course, doing what is best for baby is most important to me, but I do get a bit upset when the scale moves up. I know I need to stop weighing myself almost daily and get over it. I think once I start showing, the weight won't matter to me.
Baby bump: My stomach is definitely rounding some. I don't need the maternity clothes yet, but probably in a couple of weeks.
Sleep: Light sleeper and waking often to pee. With IJ snoring so much lately, I have actually spent a few nights on the couch this past week. I sleep very well there.
Best moment of the week: Coming out of the pregnancy closet. Our family and friends all know now.
Symptoms: Tired, but not as bad. Hungry often. And I am already having some round ligament pain. It isn't so much painful as it is mild discomfort. A good sign baby is growing!
Food cravings: still french fries and spicy peppers - not good for the heartburn though.
What I miss: nothing really this week. I even ate sushi - one roll was vegetarian and the other was fully cooked shrimp - packaged separately from IJ's raw stuff. I love sushi!
What I am looking forward to: Level 2 US/Gender scan on Feb 14. Happy Valentine's Day!
Milestones: Almost finished with the 1st trimester.
Emotions: Excited. But nervous about the Downs/Trisomy screening next Friday.
