This week, baby is about the size of a lime. Wow, getting pretty big!
I've still been pretty sick. The Zofran is stopping me from vomiting for the most part so that's a big improvement at least. But I still don't have much of an appetite, I lost another pound this week. 6 pounds total. It's not like I'm underweight or anything, far from it. But this is definitely not the time or way I wanted to lose weight, so I really hope this lets up soon.
I still have no energy. I've been basically laying in bed, letting the kids watch tv all day or entertain themselves. I hate it, I feel like a terrible mom. All I cook for them is spaghetti and easy snacks. Luckily Kaylee has been stepping up and being super helpful, but I feel so bad. I can't wait until I can be a good mom again. :(
Can't believe my little one is already the size of a plum this week! We're nearly at the end of the first trimester, yay!!!
I have been feeling a lot better this week. I still need to take Zofran to keep any food down but I'm starting to gain the weight I lost back. I have a bit more energy too. I'm still not doing many chores because I spend what energy I have on the kids. Poor Steven, I feel bad he has to come home from work and clean the house. But we'll get through it and hopefully I'll feel better in the second trimester.
This week the first trimester is over! Baby is the size of a peach, and already has vocal cords and fingerprints.
I am really starting to feel better this week. Not anywhere near normal but much better than I have been. I can get most of the chores done, as long as I go slowly. I think Steven is pretty thrilled, lol.
I don't know if I mentioned this but I have had to pee so often for the past few weeks. I seriously wake up like 10 times a night to pee! I don't remember this happening in my previous pregnancies. It's obnoxious, I hope it doesn't keep up the whole pregnancy.
This week, baby is the size of a lemon. Growing so fast! I think I actually felt it move this week!! Can't wait to feel definite kicks. :)
My nausea is no better, but as long as I eat and drink right after taking Zofran, I'm ok. I still have to pee every 5 seconds. -_- But my energy level is getting progressively better, so that's good!
I was going to have a prenatal appointment and blood work this week, but Kaylee ended up getting a concussion so I rescheduled everything else. She was playing and running around and somehow hit her head on the corner of a table. She is ok, she just has to take it easy for a bit (which she finds very challenging, lol). Hopefully on her checkup on Monday, they will say she's fine and can go back to school! She really misses it.
