How far along: 12 weeks, 3 days
Weight gained: -9 pounds. I keep losing, I’m doing my best not to stress out about it.
Baby Size: just over 2 inches long
Cravings: None at the moment
Aversions: Same as last week really chocolate, coffee, meat in general, anything rich or heavy and pretty much anything sweet.
Physical: Definitely still sick. Sicker this week than last week. My morning sickness is definitely worse all morning and gets better as the afternoon goes which isn’t how it has been. I’ve struggled eating and even drinking water. I can feel myself getting dehydrated and usually I chug water like a champ but for some I just can’t get it down as easily. However, I am really making sure to get enough despite that. I’ve also had strange and random insomnia. Just waking up at 2-3am and not going back to sleep for an hour or even two. Last night Avery started teething and for the first time in AGES he was waking up crying and in pain:( This was between 3:30-5am and I had JUST fallen back to sleep after my insomniac instance so this morning I was definitely drowsy! He slept in well though, which I didn’t expect.
Emotional: Nothing to report here. I didn’t have much hormonal turmoil with my last pregnancy and I don’t really seem to be having much this time either. No weepiness since the first couple weeks, no mood swings or freak outs. I’m not necessarily emotionally prepared for a second child but I’m sure that will come!
Tandem Nursing: This week I feel like I’ve had a bit more milk for Avery. Not much during the second half of the day but the morning does seem to be significant. He’s take it or leave it on his bedtime nurse. Mostly he doesn’t want to. Still incredibly stinky pee from pregnancy milk! So weird.
