I need to start out by saying that today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. I never thought that this day would be a part of my story, but it is. So while I’m grateful for hitting the 8 week mark in this pregnancy, and the feeling that I’m about to vomit that has been with me all day, I’m taking a brief moment to remember our babies that never got the opportunity to take their first breath.

February 27, 2015
Size of Baby: Raspberry. Baby measured 1.46 cm on Monday!
Weight: Still feeling bloated and looking fat. Waiting to step on a scale until they make me at the doctor’s office next week.
Sleep: I’ve been waking 3 times per night for the past few nights!
Best Moment of the Week: Easily the perfect ultrasound from Monday. Getting past the point of our last two losses was a big milestone.
Movement: Not yet.
Symptoms: Remember how last week I said that the nausea had lessened? Well it came roaring back the next day and has gotten progressively worse. I haven’t vomited yet but I’m very close today. With Bella my nausea was a few times a day and usually cured by eating something. This nausea is with me almost all day and eating doesn’t help. Hoping it keeps up though since I didn’t have this much nausea with my losses and this is more similar to what I had with Bella. No real other symptoms though other than peeing a ton. I haven’t felt super emotional and my boobs don’t really hurt. I’m tired but not super tired.
Food Cravings/Aversions: I was craving baked goods all weekend so I made some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. My favorite!
Belly Button: In.
What I Miss: Sleeping through the night. Hopefully I won’t be doing that for another 10 months or so!
What I Am Looking Forward To: Pumpkin picking this weekend! We were supposed to go last Sunday but it rained. I am also going to try and find a giant mum for the front of the house. Bummed that I haven’t been able to find one yet!
