heartbeat? 183 bpm (at our 8/9 week sono)
total weight gain/loss? -1.2 pounds (no weight gain yet!!)
maternity clothes? I'm still wearing my normal clothes and they fit just fine!!
stretch marks? No
sleep? For as long as I can remember I have gotten up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. One trip to the bathroom at night is normal, but lately it's been 2 and sometimes 3 trips. After the second or third trip to the bathroom, I start having trouble falling back asleep, because my mind starts to wonder off about what it will be like to be a Mom, bedding and baby registry etc.
best moment this week? Spending time with my sweet college roomie and her new baby Kinsley. Erin really let me "pretend" to be a Mommy for the few days I was there. I changed a few diapers, put her in and out of her carseat, pushed her around in her stroller and loved on her a bunch. Erin was an open book and really answered alot of my questions. It was so great to spend time with an old friend!!
gender predictions? I honestly have no idea. Nine more weeks until we find out though!!
what i miss: Working out. I haven't really worked out since I found out I was pregnant. I've just been too tired. And now that it's getting cold outside and it's dark so early, I don't even have any motivation to go for a walk. And......on Saturday I got this awful cramp in my hip. My Mom said she had it when she was pregnant, and it didn't go away until she delivered. Supposedly, it has to do with hormones, but I don't really know. It isn't hurting so much today, so maybe I should go for a walk!! Ehh.....maybe tomorrow!!
what i'm looking forward to: Christmas Break. I know that doesn't really have anything to do with pregnancy, but after a wonderful week off of Thanksgiving, I am so ready for those 2 weeks at Christmas!! More time to read all my books, think about baby stuff and look at all the things that we will need for our sweet babe!!
how are you feeling? I'm still feeling great!! I really feel like I'm cheating pregnancy since I haven't been sick at all. I'm still tired, but I do feel like I'm getting some energy back. I'm not going to bed at 8 or 8:30. I can now make it to 9:00 and sometimes even 10:00!! My hip cramp was really bothering me on Saturday and Sunday, but it seems to be better. I'm hoping that was a 2 day thing and it doesn't happen again. We'll see though!
