*Total weight gain: 9.5 kilos which is about 21 pounds
*How big is baby?: Sparky is (still) the the size of a squash
*Maternity clothes?: Oh yes, and some are getting quite tight as the bump continues to expand.....
*Sleep?: Well not great this week since I have been sick:( I started feeling a cold coming on on Wednesday and it just went downhill from there. I had a few nights of tossing & turning from being so stuffy and hot. I am feeling back on the mend today - 5 days - fun fun!
*Best moment this week? My doctor's appointment. It was great to hear Sparky's heartbeat, and the ob said there was 'too many bumps' for him to be able to tell which position Sparky is in - ha ha. He thinks most likely at this point he's sideways or head down - hard to tell though, and he can still turn for another 4 weeks or so, so we'll see how it goes!
*Movement?: Tons!! Murray and I are both amazed by how strong Sparky is getting. I often see bits push out from my belly - in the center or off to the right side - feet, head, bum - hard to tell. It's great to feel so much movement though:)
*Food cravings?: I think I fully satisfied my Mexican cravings in the last week or two between Selina's amazing enchiladas, Mexican out with Anna & a burrito on my own for lunch one day:) Other than that, I'm just craving fruit all the time - especially oranges while I was sick!
*Labor signs?: Too soon for that!
*Belly button in or out?: Still very much a flattie - but kind of bulging in the middle a bit - eeeek.
*What I miss: Breathing through my nose
*What I'm looking forward to: My shower next week :)
*Milestone: 10 weeks to go!!!!!! (well, techinically 8-12), but 8 weeks of work to go!
*Feelings this week:**Other than being sick, I am feeling good. Sparky is moving a lot, I'm eating well and the nursery is starting to come together bit by bit. We picked up our stroller 'carry cot' (bassinet) this week which is SO nice. I'm thrilled it finally came in!!
**I also bought some Clarins body treatment oil last week on the advice of Anna's friends to help keep stretch marks at bay (along with the continued use of cocoa butter). It smells great - reminds me of Aveda!
