Size of Baby Brewster: size of a prune and baby's vital organs are starting to function!!
Biggest Challenges: The nausea and exhaustion are still present but slowly getting better, or just not as bad. I am still having a hard time sleeping and it is starting to make me a crazy person. I can fall asleep but when I wake up at 3 to go to the bathroom I am up for the rest of the day and one day this week I was up at 1. I'm not sure how much longer I can take this! I have also had bad cramping in the evenings that is probably tied to my exhaustion. Last night we stayed in because I felt so bad.
Cravings: Lemonade mixed with cherry 7-up
Aversions: I am still turned off by meat.
Gender: My friend Jenn posted about pregnancy myths that determine the gender of the baby and according to most of those I am having a girl.
Movement: I can't feel movement but I bet that little baby is very active!
Sleep: There is very little of that.
What I miss: Sleep. I am becoming a crazy person with no energy or patience. I miss having the energy to play with the kids!
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing my normal clothes and am comfortable again wearing jeans, not all comfy pants anymore. : )
Weight gain: no change
Emotions: I get frustrated easily. I have a short fuse which is a combo of hormones and lack of sleep. I'm hoping this doesn't last too much longer!
Milestones: We mailed and emailed out our announcement cards to our family and friends. We are so excited to start sharing our big secret!!!
