Now that I’m out of the first trimester, I’m going to start weekly pregnancy updates here. With Little J I didn’t really keep track like I should have, and now I regret not being able to look back and see my progress or read about how I felt at a certain point in the pregnancy. I’m getting a late start with it, but better late than never. I’m also going to link up with a few other preggo bloggers for a weekly series called “My Pregnancy Journal”. Here goes!
Symptoms: I’m finally starting to get over the all day nausea that I’ve had the ENTIRE time. Yay! I still have to take Zofran every few days when I’m feeling especially pukey, but not like I was before. I can also finally walk into my kitchen without dry heaving at the apparently “imaginary” horrendous smell that my husband swears isn’t there. A few new symptoms that have come on are migraines and backaches. I’ve never been prone to headaches, but I get terrible ones every few days now. The backache is pretty constant and just above my tailbone. I feel like being pregnant with Little J was a breeze compared to now, but I’m getting used to it.
Weight gain: I’ve gained 3 pounds so far. I started at 137, so I’m 140 now. I hope to stay on track this time…with little J I started at 116 and ended at a whopping 176. 60 pounds!?! Ouch.
Cravings: French toast. I want to eat it all day. I’ve even been dreaming about it:) There’s an awesome brunch place I know of that has the best french toast in the world and I’m making my husband take me there this week!
Medical stuff: Nothing really. I was on Progesterone supplements but stopped a few weeks ago. I’m seeing a high risk OB due to my history ( I may or may not talk about that on here.) Thankfully the little one is healthy and looking great so far!
Something I am excited about: Finding out the gender next week!
