Size of baby: Around 5 inches long and weighs about 5 ounces. *however* at my last ultrasound my dr told me thy my baby is "huge" so I'm betting it's a little more than that.
Total weight gain/loss: I lost around 8 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. As of the beginning of the week, I have gained 1.5-2 of that back depending on the scale I use. We will see at my appt tomorrow.
Maternity Clothes: A while back I bought the Target brand belly band and it is the best thing I could have purchased! Since I only have one pair of pants left that fit it allows me to wear all of my work pants and jeans still. I have bought a couple of shirts since they were on sale and one pair of maternity pants that apparently I'm not big enough for yet.
Gender: We found out at the end of the month!! I have no idea what it is and hubby is positive that it's a girl.
Movement: Argh! This has been a big source of stress for me! It seems like everyone I talk to tells me how they had been feeling their baby move for weeks by now and I'm feeling nothing. I do know that it's completely normal for me to not feel it yet but it's just something for my anxiety to grasp hold of. Hopefully my fears will be put to rest at my appointment tomorrow.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back. I never realized how much I did that until I try not to do it anymore!
Cravings: I haven't really had any yet. It seems like once I have something I want once then that's the end of it.
Symptoms: *slight tiredness
*painful sex :(
*sore boobs at night
*random pains on the left side of my pelvic area
Best moment this week: Having several people tell me that I look pregnant!
What I'm looking forward to: again, feeling baby move!
Milestones: Baby is becoming capable of hearing and reacting to sounds!

Man it's been a long time! I have had such a hard time with updating here. When I first started this blog I was sure that the minute I got pregnant I would be on here blogging all the time but apparently that's not the case. During the first trimester I was so exhausted all the time that all I did was go to work and sleep. Now that I finally have more energy every time I sit down to blog I start thinking about all of you girls that haven't gotten pregnant yet. I sit and think about you and know that this really isn't what you want to be reading about right now so I don't post anything. Honestly right after I got pregnant I dealt with a lot of guilt and even some depression. I felt so guilty that I got pregnant while so many others didn't. I had a really hard time even coming to grips with bring pregnant and bonding with my baby at all. I felt so disconnected with my own body and so unable to just be happy. I never ever thought that would be me though. I used to read about pregnant women feeling the same way after infertility but I just *knew* that would never be me. Obviously I was wrong.
Thank you to everyone who has checked up me. You girls are awesome. I'm sorry if I haven't gotten back to you. Hopefully I will be on here posting more updates more frequently.

So far things have been going really well. My symptoms are pretty textbook so far.
*I'm pretty nauseous every morning until about 12:00 or 1:00. Luckily I haven't thrown up yet which I am extremely grateful for. I am having to get up a little earlier than normal so that I can eat breakfast first instead of waiting till I'm leaving like I normally do. Also my mom bought me some Sea bands which I think are helping but I'm not sure.
*Before I got pregnant I never ever woke up in the middle night. Now I get up between 3:00am to 3:05am every single morning to pee.
*I'm thirsty for water all the time.
*I'm feeling slightly moody but I'm trying really hard to reign that one it as I know that it's only going to get worse.
It's weird to me how different I feel emotionally about this pregnancy compared to the last one. Sometimes I have to work really hard at letting myself get excited but I supposed that's probably normal right? I just feel so much more logical this time around if that makes sense. Honestly it's hard to put it into words. Slowly though I'm adjusting to the idea that I'm allowed to be happy about this.
