8 Weeks


How Far Along: 8 weeks

Size of baby: just over 1/2 inch. The baby is the size of a raspberry.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: –1lb.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but at times my jeans are getting a little bit tight! I may be close to resorting to a rubber band soon.

Gender: No clue!

Movement: Not yet.

Sleep: I’m so tired, but when it’s actually time to go to sleep I can’t. Then I end up waking up at like 5:00 in the morning and absolutely can’t fall back asleep which is so frustrating!

Symptoms: Nothing really this week unless you count being VERY hormonal and irritable.

Cravings: Pineapple and apples! I’ve been like a mad woman with eating pineapple this week. I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but if you could be a pineapple cannibal, that’s what I would be. I’ve eaten 2 fresh pineapples so far this week, to the point that I’m inhaling the pineapple, gnawing at the meat with juice dripping down my chin. It’s downright shameful, and quite honestly I think it scares Jeremy!

What I Miss: Regular sleep patterns.

Best Moment this week: Getting to see the baby again with my second ultrasound. I’m having some progesterone issues just like I did with Jackson, so until everything evens out at 12 weeks I’ll probably have several more ultrasounds just to make sure things are still going well. I think with Jackson I ended up having 14 ultrasounds total, which was a great sneak peek at how much he was changing. I don’t know if I’ll have that many this time, but I do love every little peek we get! I know I’ll have one more this Monday, but I’m not sure what happens after that

What I am looking forward to: Finding out if we are having a boy or a girl. Only 10 more weeks!

Regular sleep patterns...what are those? Kidding...a little. : )

I love hearing how the little one is doing. I had such fun doing this when I was pg, back in the cave man days. LOL

Yay for extra ultrasounds!! It's nice to have issues that aren't serious issues so that you can see the sweet baby so much more - I did too and loved every picture!
