Total Weight Gain: Well I'm not really sure the total... the OB has me starting at one weight (which nets 7 lbs gained), I'm remembering my real pre-pregnancy weight (as soon as I got my BFP, and which nets about 8.5 lbs gained) and then there's the first weight I noted on my little tracker at 12w (which nets only 5 lbs gained.)
soooo - anywhere from 5-8.5 lbs, and if it's 5-7, I feel good/ok about it. 8.5 lbs? I'm getting leery that I'm on a course to gain more than I did with Button. That and I feel like I've done as much as a slug, physical-activity-wise the past few months... after-work walks starting tonight!!!
Maternity Clothes: I've kind of given up - they're so comfy, I don't fight with my wardrobe each morning (and leave a pile of discards all over the bedroom...) I'm still wearing non-maternity maxi-skirts, and some dresses and tops...
Symptoms: none really - there's times I feel like I forget I'm pregnant!!
Sleep: getting pretty good sleep, as long as I get to bed at a decent hour (not like last night, which was around midnight...) I think we're still adjusting to the time-change from GMT
Food Cravings: I guess still oreo ice cream... nothing really, otherwise
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really...
Movement: Some pops here and there!
Stretch Marks: Still just ones I had on my hips from highschool...
Gender Prediction: I have my prediction, the tech has hers as well - we'll actually find out this Friday at our elective ultrasound!!! (Check out the new countdown on the left!)
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: In (never turned out last time either)
Wedding Rings on or off?: On
Happy or Moody?: I think I can officially say the mood swings have definitely improved, minus one or two here and there...
Purchases for baby: Officially made the first purchase at a cute little store in CO called Mountain Moppets (seriously, how cute is that name?!) I got a set of knit socks (one pair pink, one cream, one blue!) that were 75% off and only $7 or so!
Purchases for Momma: I hit Burlington Coat Factory this weekend looking specifically for loose, racer-back (shoulder baring for some tan!) tanks and ended up with shorts, two skirts, and a bunch of blouses!! Go BCF!!
Miss Anything?: Still probably a good cold drink, like a margarita or Twisted Tea... I also hear commercials for Six Flags and remember how fun the roller coasters were in our TTA BuggyList extravaganza! (Holy cow.... that was over three years ago...)
Looking forward to: this Friday's gender ultrasound!!!!! (and even aside from finding out Boy/Girl for sure, just excited to see baby again!)
ETA: fun pics (from almost 18w) with Button for comparison!
another P.S.S. - Had 16week bloodwork done yesterday for "Second trimester" screenings (spina bifida is the only one I can remember now...) and inquired about the results from the 12week bloodwork/NT scan, since my OB had never brought it up... We are <1:10,000 for both Down Syndrome and Trisomy (13 and 18 I think) wooooooot!!
