8 weeks

Size of Baby: Raspberry…making our way up the berry chart!

Weight: Guess we’ll see at my appointment tomorrow…guessing up 1-2 lbs

Sleep: Still waking about 3 times per night to pee but other than that sleeping great. Weekend naps were awesome!

Best Moment of the Week: Telling Lance’s parents. At first, I could tell that they were a little nervous to be too excited, but at our last brunch with them before leaving town I noticed his mother longingly look at a little baby that went by and realized that the excitement is in there even if everyone is afraid to show it.

Movement: Odd pulsing in my shin that started today but clearly not a kicking baby down there.

Symptoms: My nausea has continued it’s pattern from last week where I get it when I wake up, around 11 am, around 4 pm, and then around 10-11 pm. Still have the same occasionally achy boobs and frequent pee stops. Pregnancy emotion just cracks Lance up as I swear I start tearing up at the most bizarre things.

Food Cravings/Aversions: None at the moment. I wish I could say my fro yo cravings were pregnancy related but those are always present.

Belly Button: In.

What I Miss: Anticipation of an ultrasound instead of fear. I’m feeling more positive due to my strong symptoms and lack of spotting, but I also know what it is like to be blindsided at an ultrasound – hence the major fear.

What I Am Looking Forward To: 8 week ultrasound tomorrow morning! As fearful as I am, I am also hopeful for some positive news.
