How far along: 8 Weeks
How big is the baby: Size of a raspberry. Raspberries are huge!
Weight gain: None
Clothes: Regular. They just all don't look great.
Sleep: For the last few weeks I have been waking up several times throughout the night to go to the bathroom, get a drink of water (OMG! THE THIRST!) and then not be able to fall back asleep.
Movement: Not yet!
Food/Aversions: Pretty much same ole same ole. I have been loving fresh fruit. Grapes. Apples. Yum! I feel fine most of the time! I have had some icky feeling days, but nothing that isn't easily dealt with!
What I miss: Nothing. I am a really good pretend drinker though. Everyone always says they will know when I am pregnant when I stop drinking. I fooled everyone at my brother-in-law's 40th birthday on Saturday. I brought my own mixed drink of "wine and sprite" (sprite and cranberry juice) and drank it all night!
What I am looking forward to: Looking pregnant!
Oh! And This: I had my first appt today at the OB office with the NP. I switched to a new doctor because i want to deliver at a different hospital. This one also comes highly recommended. I loved the NP and was floating on air when she said everything felt nice and big and 8 weeks! Yay! She said I could schedule my ultrasound for anytime. So Friday it is! Friday! That is so soon! I can totally wait until Friday!!!! Then it will only be 3 more weeks until my 12 week appointment!
I LOVE waking up and checking my favorite pregnancy apps as soon as I wake up. I have 5 favorites that I check before getting out of bed. There is one I take notes in. But I love the others for their daily tips! Each one has different tips. And Monday morning is the BEST when I get to read all of the new weekly updates!
The apps I like:
BabyBump: This one I use to journal/take notes and has weekly and daily updates
Pregnancy: Has good weekly and daily updates
Sprout: Has awesome pictures (like the one below) and daily and weekly updates
Baby Center: Has a checklist item for each day and also some sort of tip or article
WebMD Pregnancy: Has 5 new things each week, and one changes every day.
Most of them have tips about your body, the baby, any general pregnancy tips.
FRESH FRUIT! YUM!
This picture is from my brother-in-law's 40th birthday party on Saturday! I am a great pretend drinker! I opted out of the shot by saying I had church in the morning and I would take a picture!
