Size of Baby: A small cantaloupe (6.5 inches). That seems large -- a lot larger than the heirloom tomato last week.
Gender: Baby girl!
Weight Gain: Up two pounds this week, so +4 from my normal pre-pregnancy weight, +7 from my lowest pregnancy weight.
Maternity Clothes: I stopped at Goodwill to look for a tacky Christmas sweater and ended up spotting a maternity rack -- no shame in my game! I found a hardly-worn pair of Pea In The Pod khaki bootcut pants for $3.99! And they have a full tummy panel which is so comfy on me. They are in the wash now and they will be perfect for the work travel I have coming up in January and February. When you see how much stores charge for maternity pants, you know how much of a steal this is -- most Pea In The Pod pants are $85 and up.
Nursery: Still an office.
Movement: Baby girl moves around quite a bit, especially when I eat something sweet or change positions from standing up to sitting down. It's so dang sweet. Love this feeling.
Symptoms: Besides this growing belly, not many symptoms to report upon. No wonder people love the second trimester!
Sleep: Sleeping really well and loving my Snoogle pregnancy pillow.
Cravings: I still love sweets. Ordered Belgian waffles with bananas and walnuts for breakfast Saturday morning when we were in DC and they were the jam. Not exactly "normal" April, though. I typically would have gone for an omelet!
What I Miss: Can't think of a thing. Well, maybe an occasional glass of champagne. ;)
Best Moment This Week: Talking about baby girl with Ian's grandparents! They are so excited and happy. I can't wait for them to meet her.
Looking Forward To: Deciding on a name. Ian and I have knocked a few ideas around but committing to a name is certainly overwhelming! For someone who has always kept a running list of baby names in her phone, you'd think it would be easy for me. :)
