How far along - 8 weeks
Weight gain - 0 lbs
Morning sickness/nausea - I get it once in a while. More so in the late afternoon/evening time, sometimes randomly, and also when I smell something that doesn't agree with me. Sometimes eating helps it.
Pain - I still get pain in my neck from sleeping. I can't figure out why. Maybe I need a different pillow?
Stretchmarks - Nope.
Maternity clothes - I've gotten them out and am tempted to wear them. Most of my pants and shorts are tight and I have to unbutton them when I sit down. Some I can't button at all and have been having to pack them away for the time being.
Food cravings/aversions - No aversions, Still crave Asian food. Sometimes I can't make up my mind as to what I want; it's horrible at a restaurant. Those poor waitresses! Also cereal, I eat multiple bowls a day.
Boy or Girl - We're not finding out this time! But secretly I think it's a girl.
Lowlights of the week - My allergies, the evening sickness, and the EXHAUSTION! I went to bed on Monday night at 6:30, slept until 7am, and still felt like taking a nap the next day!
Highlights of the week - Christian is in love with the baby already. He's constantly trying to feed me because "the baby needs food", he'll try and share toys with the baby, talk to my belly, kiss it, and give it hugs. And he has just started not letting me pick him up because he thinks he'll squish the baby. I love that he is so caring!
Anything to add - Alena doesn't talk much about the baby but she has started to talk about how the baby will eat. (Gabe and I explained that they baby will nurse from my breasts.) The other day in the car, I turned around to see her with her shirt pulled down "nursing" her stuffed animal. I so glad she understands. :)
