Little Baby is the size of an apple this week! (That's what Ruby decided we should call it for now.) And it's developing like crazy (and sucking all of my energy out of me...). It's so fun feeling it move around a few times a day. It never moves when I'm thinking about it though, so it's always a surprise to feel a little kick. I can't wait until Andy and the kids can feel it too.
Like I said before, I've been exhausted!! I can't seem to catch up on anything for lack of energy. It's been rough. The house is constantly a disaster. :( Last night I cleaned the kitchen, put the groceries away - that had been sitting there for a day - and folded a week's worth of laundry, and then was absolutely exhausted. I can't wait to hopefully have more energy.
My midwife suggested Natural Calm and Homeopathic Moon Drops for my insomnia, and I think that has been helping. They at least worked when I woke up at 4:30 yesterday, I was able to go back to sleep until Andy's alarm at 5:45. Also, I'm excited to go see the midwife on Monday! It's been almost 5 weeks, so I'm ready for our second appointment and to hear the little heartbeat again. :)
My stomach has really popped out this week too. People are asking me if I'm pregnant now left and right. Yesterday I even had a guy ask if I was going to have the baby before Christmas! Hahaha. Try adding 4 months... Oh well, I wasn't expecting to be small.
Andy found my maternity clothes way up high in the garage, thank the Lord. He looked a few times before and I was worried that we lost them or loaned them out. It's not comfortable to button my pants now, so the Bella Band is a life saver until I can fit in my maternity pants. And all of my non-maternity shirts were getting too short. It's like having a whole new wardrobe, so I like that!
Changes this week: Bigger belly, and exhaustion is back.
Cravings this week: Not much, just savory stuff I guess. Sweet stuff is sounding better now that my nausea is gone.
