Weight Gain: 0 Pounds.
I can't decide whether I think it's totally rad that I haven't gained any weight or if I think it sucks because it means that I've been throwing up a lot and my appetite just isn't at it's usual ferocity. For now, I'll just enjoy my cute little belly because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that by the end of this I will look like a water balloon in pantyhose with a double chin. Trust me.
Aches & Pains: With the exception of some sciatic pain a few weeks ago, I have been feeling pretty good. My energy level is slowly coming back and I'm able to do more than just lay on the couch, for which everyone is thankful. I'm pretty sure that Dave was developing a nervous tic from seeing the house so messy. I think I'm finally past all that yucky stuff and into the part of pregnancy that I love best.
Cravings: Still Beef and Milk. Dave is loving this baby because I've been wanting Chipotle burritos all the time. Chipotle is one of Dave's favorite places to eat and I usually just don't care for it. There are plenty of other places we agree on, so we hardly ever eat there. Except for now. I've been getting their burrito with beef and rice. Pretty plain, but it's been hitting the spot. Hitting the spot so much that we've eaten there more in the last three months than we have in the last 5 years. Also, Pizza Hut thin crust cheese pizza.
Totally Cool Developments: Right now the coolest thing is that we got to see the baby at the sonogram. The doctor got a great shot and we could see the head, both arms and legs, and what was either a little boy part or the last remaining part of a tail. We're not really sure. Baby had a racing heart beat (179) and was squirming and dancing all over the place. Dave and I about died because it looked like the baby was just rockin' to it's own little beat. Can't wait to meet this thing.
The Belly Pic: And now, the part you've all been waiting for....
I know. I'm huge. This whole third-baby-makes-the-belly-jump-out thing is kind of ridiculous.
Also, could there be a weirder way to pose for a photo? There has to be a better way to see the side view and not look like the exorcist.
Anyways, there you go! Happy Fetus Friday!!
