Weight gain this week: one pound
Total weight gain: 2.5-3 pounds
Cravings: I really really felt like having sushi, but haven't had any because I don't know enough about sushi to pick something I'm actually allowed to eat. So I'll look into it, figure out what's okay to have, and then maybe go out and get it at some point. Oh and tomato soup from Safeway, YUM!!
Aversions: Nothing too bad- alfredo sauce, and orange juice (off and on, some days I want it, some days I hate it). I think that's it.
Best part of the week: Daily naps (except for today), and almost daily sleep-ins (8am) thanks to my amazing husband who usually gets up with Riley early in the morning.
Movement: none felt yet, apparently I have an anterior placenta this time around, which means it can take a lot longer for me to feel any movement. Last time I first felt movement around 17 weeks, but it could be a while before I feel anything this time. Guess we'll see!
Worst part of the week: My stupid arm still feels awful from my blood draw last week when she struck a nerve. OUCH. I guess something to ask my Dr. about at my appointment on Monday.
About baby: Baby is now about the size of a lemon, somewhere in the 3.5-4" range, weighing in at a whole 1.5 ounces (all approximate, of course). Baby can now grimace, frown, pee, and possibly suck his or her thumb. Fun fact (thanks to parentsconnect.com)- the baby has tripled in size in the last 3 weeks!
Aaaaaaaand, a photo with some more fun facts.
