Week 8 : Feelin....great! Or maybe not....

Getting there....

December 10:
Your baby is growing at an amazing rate — about a millimeter every day — and now is the size of a large raspberry. Your little berry is looking a lot less reptilian (even though she has webbed fingers and toes, her tail is just about gone) and a lot more baby-like these days, as her lips, nose, eyelids, legs, and back continue to take shape. Her heart is beating at the incredible rate of 150 times per minute — about twice as fast as yours! And even though you can't yet feel it, she's now making spontaneous movements as she twitches her tiny trunk and limb buds.
Total Weight Gain: Negative, negative. Scale says I'm down 3 pounds from pre conception weight. Now, lest we worry, I started out about 8 pounds heavier than my "normal" weight. The doc isn't worried-he says the queasiness will pass, and I'll be well on my way to the goal of 25-30 pounds within the next few weeks. (Oh magical second trimester, please really be magical!!)
My Body: Meh. It's not a happy camper. Nausea, queasiness, actual sickness, yuck. I hope these pass in the next week so I can enjoy Christmas somewhat! (Half serious. I know this is lil beans way of saying "Hey Ma! I'm growing!"
Cravings: Soup. It soothes my tummy. That's about it.
Sleep: Hangin in there. I'm taking naps when I can, but busy prepping for Christmas. aiming for "decent", abandoning "perfection". This is good practice for life with child, I'm told :-)
Baby Items Bought/Received: Grandparent onesies for gifting!
Best Baby Moment: The big reveal! There were a few awkward moments (no, I do not want to hear about your 8 month sickness or miscarriage in great detail), but as a whole, all three conversations were just amazing. I can't wait to tell the rest of family and friends in the next few weeks!
Goals: To try and gain some weight back over the holidays! Seriously, who says that? I'm framing it for posterity. lolz.
Worries: I hope they keep their mouths shut...I hope they don't tell anyone.....repeat...repeat....repeat....
