Total Weight Gain: Not sure. I go to my ob monday and my endocrinologist on wednesday. I will find out then and post next week. I still don't think I have gained much 'yet' except in my stomache...we'll see!
Sleep: Like a rock!
Food/Eating: Appetite hasn't changed much. My indecisiveness is still there though. I have found myself eating more fruit than normal. I usually stay away from fruit (being a diabetic) because the sugar in it burns so quickly in my system. It makes it hard to control my blood sugar when I eat things like that. I'm not sure if it is a craving or just that it tastes so good and refreshing because it has been so hot lately! To help fight the urge to eat a ton of fruit, I have been getting sonic's diet strawberry limeades. They are refreshing and I can eat the little bit of fruit at the bottom without sending my body into complete shock:) They are so good--and DIET!
Movement: Finally! I was laying down last friday night watching a movie and felt the baby move. It was the strangest feeling. It was more like a pressure or pushing on my insides than a flutter. It hasn't stopped since. This little peanut is an active child to say the least. I'm not sure it ever sleeps. As I type, I think it is practicing karate kicks and punches. It is a crazy feeling but so special. I feel a different bond than I had before. It's almost like it makes it real. I can definately see a change in my body and now feel it. I can't believe my pregnancy is almost half way over. I have a feeling I'm going to miss this:)
Gender: Monday is the day...June 27 at 2pm. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
What I miss: Nothing yet. In fact, I enjoy most everything about being pregnant right now. I hope these thoughts stay with me throughout the hot and muggy Kentucky summer!
Looking forward to: Finding out the sex and seeing this sweet, active baby inside me. Also looking foward to when Kevin can actually feel the baby kick. He has been asking what it feels like and he will try to push on my belly to feel something. I keep telling him maybe another month or so. I hope so, I know he is anxious.
I have created a blog for my portfolio. Feel free to follow me and see everyday photos of my clients. I felt that it was important to show them in their everyday surroundings. I love that you will get to see how they style themselves and carry out my work. Enjoy!
I realize I am a couple weeks behind:) I was actually doing these posts mid week and by that time, I was 5 days in. Fridays mark the first day of the week for me so I will try to do these on Fridays from now on.
Total Weight Gain: Same really. I feel like my belly is definately bigger but I haven't gained elsewhere--yet:) As far as the scale goes, it has stayed the same for a few weeks now.
Sleep: With school and work, I sleep like a rock!
Food/Eating: Haven't gotten sick anymore. Just the one time. No cravings or aversions.
Movement: Last time I said I was at a concert and thought I felt it move...I must have been imagining because I haven't felt anything since. It was probably just the loud music. I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago and she had trouble getting a heartbeat on the doppler. She said everytime she heard it, the little squirt would move. She said it was a very active little baby:)
Gender: June 27...less than 2 weeks!!!
What I miss: Nothing yet:)
Looking forward to: June 27th, planning a nursery, buying baby clothes, monogramming anything and everything, registering, and meeting our little peanut in November!!! I am officially done with cosmetology school on July 18 and then we leave that weekend for the beach. I am so looking forward to relaxing on the beach and doing some outlet shopping for Baby D.
Food/Eating: Well, it finally happened...I got sick! Only once and it was right in the middle of dinner. I haven't gotten sick yet so it was a bit of a shock when I did. I had heartburn really bad that day and just wanted something safe to eat for dinner. I chose subway. I got half of my sandwich down and most of my doritos. I was in the midst of taking my next bite and something didn't settle right. I put my food down and barely made it to the bathroom in time. Afterwards, I couldn't finish my meal but I was able to eat some m&m's. It is so crazy to me that after getting sick, I felt like eating again. Let's hope that will be the first, last, and only time I get sick through this pregnancy. I despise throwing up!
Movement: I went to a concert friday night and thought I felt something. It could have been the bass in the arena, not sure. I haven't felt anything since. I am getting close to the halfway point so I should be feeling it anyday. I can't wait!
