Disclaimer: I gave myself one roll of 5 shots to get a picture today. Trust me, these were the best ones...
Size: Oliver should be around 5.2 inches in length now! Which to me seems way larger than a pomegranate or an onion... definitely feels way larger.
Weight Gain: -6. I actually hit my goal weight from before I was pregnant this week! I was hoping to loose about 5 pounds, so it is weird to be gaining weight TOWARD my weight loss goal. One bowl of cookies and cream at a time.
Movement: I can feel him now! Dom still hasn't gotten to feel him, and I can't see him move through my skin, but I can definitely feel something moving in there. Mostly in the mornings and at night, when I am laying in bed, I can feel movement. Only twice did I feel what felt like a kick. Usually I think it is just a head or butt being pushed against my abdominal muscles.
How I'm Feeling: Honestly, pretty discouraged right now. It has been over 4 months now of not a single day where I felt healthy. If it isn't nausea it is something else. I have never before appreciate being healthy as much as I do these days. It is like I can't remember the days where making the bed wasn't a difficult process.
Sleep: I am sleeping like a bear in hibernation! 9 hours last night, and I am hoping every night for the rest of the holidays.
Cravings: Still no real cravings. Once I start eating Cheetos thought, I never want to stop.
Aversions: Food in general... especially meat.
Workouts: I had 4 really good workouts in the past 2 week. 2 strong arm days and 2 good leg days. It felt amazing! I have been doing lots of exercises on a yoga ball and ab workouts on the dip bar.
Maternity Clothes: I bought a pair of maternity pants the other day. They are literally the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my body. I am in love!!
Baby Items: Baby Oliver is going to need a seriously large closet at this rate! I am going to have to start telling people to buy 3 and 6 month old outfits or he won't get a chance to wear them all. Here are 2 pictures of some gifts that have come in this week.
Best Moment of the Week: Definitely feeing Oliver move. It is the weirdest yet coolest feeling!
I am 25 years old with a 2 year old son and a wicked handsome husband living in Birmingham, Alabama.
