Well, hello there!!
Did you think I forgot about you?
I didn't...I swear...
I just haven't been up to anything superbly interesting lately (other than all of June where I traveled all but, like, 8 days...I'll post pics...promise.)
In fact, I've barely been functioning at above a wake-breathe-eat-crochet-sleep level.
Due Date? January 17th. Handsome Husband thinks he/she will be born on the 9th, though.
How far along? 13 weeks on Friday.
Size of baby? He/she is the size of a lemon.
Weight gain? 5 lbs. I've only had a twinge of nausea here and there, so I am trying to eat as normally as possible.
Since returning from our multiple jaunts around the eastern US I've also gotten back into the gym.
I REALLY missed cycling class.
Right before I got pregnant I got a Polar FT7 heart monitor...best investment EVER.
I am able to know exactly how hard I can push myself to get the best workout possible.
Maternity clothes? Oh, totally! My jeans still fit in the legs and all, but I couldn't button them. Plus, it was a great time to stock up on the sale items for school clothes!
Movement? Not yet. He/she is still too little.
Food cravings? In the beginning it was McDonald's french fries, but I was able to get over that thankfully!
Now, all I can think about is ice water...lots of ice water.
I go through at least a gallon of water a day and have emptied the ice maker a few times this week.
Gender? We aren't finding out.
We think it will be more exciting!
Believe me you, thought...the anticipation is killing me already!
Don't worry, though...I'll stay strong.
Bellybutton in or out? In.
What I miss? Really pushing myself to my limit in a workout.
Looking forward to...? When I actually start to show a bump, not just residual out-of-shape-gut pooch.
All in all, I am feeling truly awesome.
I was blessed with a wicked easy first trimester (don't hate me) and other than needing a daily 2-hour nap I feel almost normal.
Have a great weekend!
