8 weeks (baby #2)
How far along: 8 Weeks!
Maternity clothes: No, but sadly most of my clothes are already tight :(
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: I can't get enough sleep - naps, early to bed, all of it!
Best moment of the week: We got to see our little bouncing baby this week! At 7.1 weeks the baby was measuring 7.3 weeks with a heartbeat of 160bpm! What a beautiful sight to be seen! Feeling so very blessed.
Worst moment of the week: During the ultrasound, they also found I have a small Subchorionic hemorrhage. I had one with Harper, and it was nothing. This one is just as small, and even noted in the report as being "implantation bleeding". I've had zero spotting or cramps, which is good. Praying this remains to be nothing.
Running/Workouts: Running is good, slow and steady. Running 5 miles at about an 8:50-9 minute mile most days.
Missing anything: Energy
Things that make me queasy: Same things - I've thrown up twice, right after eating. Mostly I just have all day underlying nausea and some dry heaving.
Energy level: Negative 20
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Looking forward to: Baby's first concert tonight - Going to see James Bay!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: These first few weeks are really dragging. I feel like in retrospect the entire pregnancy will have flown by in the blink of an eye AND all I'll want is to be pregnant all over again...but the first trimester of feeling crappy and not been able to tell people is rough.
