I'm thrilled to say that I'm 13 weeks-into my 2nd trimester (I just typed "3rd" and had to erase it...wishful thinking).
Baby's size: 3 inches from crown to rump, about the size of a medium shrimp, and weighing 1 ounce ( I think I messed up last week on the weight)
My weight gain this month: 4 pounds
Clothes: maternity pants and shirts and stretchy shirts; Brian's t-shirts at night (my favorite)
Cravings: salty food, bread, and fruit. I also had a coke yesterday-it was the BEST coke I've ever had. I haven't had any caffeine in 3 months. It was a fountain coke with lots of ice and it was delicious.
Aversions: greasy food. I skipped fries this week for potato salad!
How I'm feeling: I'm feeling a little bit better and I'm hopeful that the sickness may be going away. I'm also trying to pick myself up out of this sludge. I caught a glimpse of myself out the other day and couldn't believe my eyes. I went out of the house so proud of my cute little Harper. Then, I walked by a mirror at Nordstrom and I about fell out. I looked like the biggest MESS ever. I'm not even kidding. They probably thought I was a shoplifter. I went into a dressing room just to put on some lipstick and brush out my hair. I just haven't felt like doing anything with myself. Sooooo, I am turning a new leaf and seriously making an effort every day.
My favorite thing this week: finding out a very dear friend is expecting and due in May. She's going to be the best mother and I'm saying extra prayers of praise for her.
