Weight gained: Since I messed up last week by not weighing myself, I don't know what I gained this week either, but I am now at a total of 8 pounds gained.
Cravings: none really that I can think of.
Aversions: none. Boring, I know.
Lots of movement these days, especially noticeable in the evenings when I'm relaxing on the couch. Still can't feel or see it from the outside, so Mark hasn't been able to feel anything yet. I'm excited for him to be able to feel it because I think it really makes the pregnancy more real for him.
Exciting things this week: I heard the heartbeat for the first time! You might be thinking, wow, that's pretty late in the game to be hearing it for the first time, and you're right. At my last 2 doctor's appointments my OB tried to hear the heartbeat for maybe a total of 2 seconds, and then was like, eh, we'll just do an ultrasound. We could see the heartbeat (and baby, obviously), but didn't actually hear it. So this time she heard it right away, a strong heartbeat of around 160. I'm thinking we're having another girl, but we'll find out next Wednesday!! And I'm trying to come up with a fun way to share it with you all, so get excited!
I'm not really a big fan of sharing bare belly shots, but I wanted one from the front, and you couldn't really see anything with my black shirt on, so this is the closest to bare belly you'll probably see. Can you see my little bruises (they look like red dots sort of) on either side of my belly? That's from the lovenox injections. Those bruises are actually the smallest ones I've had since I started these injections, so that's a plus!
