Decided to do an update while I’m trapped in my office at work. There’s a crazy couple in the boutique who keep asking to see the main designer (me) because they want to get a whole wardrobe made. I don’t want to talk to ANYONE until after Halloween. I can’t even think past Oct. 31. Also I don’t make entire wardrobes. I only do a few full customs a year because I’m too busy running the store. So I’m hiding while the girls upfront help them. Figure I might as well do an update!
How far along: 14 weeks , 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Nectarine
Total weight gain: trying to hang onto that pound I gained. Still sick in the evenings. I thought I was supposed to be done with this by now! bleh.
Maternity clothes: I haven’t bought anything new since the jeans. I am living in a pair of drawstring shorts that are now the most comfortable thing I own.
Stretch marks: Still clear. My friend sent me a homemade all natural belly butter that I’ve been lubing up with.
Sleep: Falling asleep is getting better but I still get up 5 times to pee.
Best moment of this week: I went one day without barfing! Only to follow it up the next night by puking 3 times. Yuck.
Miss anything: not throwing up. I can’t believe the number of times I have thrown up. I wish I missed wine but at this point I can’t even smell it without getting sick. I just miss feeling good in the evenings. At least I feel mostly good in the daytime!
Movement: none yet but I read I should be feeling something in the next few weeks!
Food cravings: I mostly just go with what I think I won’t throw up.
Anything making you queasy or sick: the clock striking 9PM
Have you started to show yet: yes I have a pretty good bump.
Gender: I’ll find out next week!!
Labor signs: nope!
Belly button in or out: belly out, button in
Wedding rings on or off: on for work and public appearances only. Off the moment I walk in the door at home.
Happy or moody most of the time: I have been pretty happy and had more energy the past few days
Looking forward to: Getting the call next week with the Materni T21 results and finding out the gender!
