Yesterday way Valentine's Day. I'm generally not a fan because there is too much pressure put on it and people feel like they have to scramble to prove how much they love their significant other. I wasn't expecting anything, but I did wake up to a cute little rose bush and some handmade cards from my two favorite guys.
Andrew's card is currently on my wall at work so I can look at his scribbly nonsense throughout the day. And my little rosebush is on my windowsill here until it gets warm enough for us to plant it outside. I know most women might prefer a big bouquet of roses, but I love that I'll have these little guys for a long time growing on our porch.
I tried getting a picture of my little munchkin with his Valentine bear, but he was being a big goofball, so this is the best I could do:
Love that kid so damn much!
Anyway, on to my weekly update...
How far along? 12w0d and the size of a plum. 2.1 inches and almost half an ounce. Capable of opening and closing it's hands and curling it's toes.
Weight loss/gain: It appeared to be +6 lbs this morning, but I haven't gone to the bathroom in days. I'm checking into probiotics this weekend.
Maternity clothes: Nope - my regular clothes fit just fine.
Symptoms: I'm tired and can't poop.
Sex (of baby): We could possibly know this next week if I get the results of my test back. I really don't have a feeling one way or the other yet.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well with one or two wakeups to pee.
Best moment this week? Not much going on at this point.
Movement: Nope. S/he may be moving in there but I won't feel it for a while.
Food cravings: Sweets. Cheap valentine's candy is going to be my downfall.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? Not feeling so gross.
What I'm looking forward to? Getting the results from my test and (hopefully) finding out that s/he is healthy.
Milestones: Inching closer to 2nd tri.
What I'm nervous about: I'm back to "How the $&#@ are we going to handle two kids?!?"
Yes, I decided to face the opposite direction this week - it seemed more flattering. Still nothing to see except a little extra thickness in the midsection.
