How far along: 5 weeks.
How big is baby: About the size of a sesame seed.
Total weight gain: I originally lost 5 lbs. then gained 2lbs. back, thank goodness. I was starting to worry why I would lose and not gain.
Maternity Clothes: Still none…like I said, let’s not rush this and enjoy every second I can in my normal clothes.
Sleep: The fatigue has dwindled down. I slept like a baby the first night back from Michigan, cuddling close to my husband. I have a little bit more energy. Still peeing every 30-45 minutes which can keep me up at night. My dreams are crazy and nightmares are frequent. Very vivid and real. I even had to text message mom to make sure she was okay because I was so convinced the dream was real.
Best moment of the week: Moving in to our new house and passing my NCLEX nursing boards. I’m officially a registered nurse (BSN-RN). It only took me 75 questions in less than an hour, I am very proud of myself.
Food Cravings: Water. I actually have no appetite still…I have to literally MAKE myself eat. It’s getting quite annoying.
Food Aversions: Nada.
Symptoms: The same: except MY FACE! Oh no, the acne! The little tiny goose-bump-like acne all over my entire face, neck and starting to spread to my chest. This is NOT okay, BS. I’m on a hunt to find a good skin clearing regimen, but I’m sure there’s not much safe out there. I had to toss my normal BP routine. The twins are bigger, tender, full, achy. I pee just about every 30-45 minutes still. The fatigue has let up a little bit, I have more energy. No mood swings, no emotions, no anger and no morning sickness…yet.
Mood: Calm, relaxed, chill. Totally opposite of what I am normally, still.
Movement: Nada. But the heart is pumping this week!
What I’m looking forward to: Moving completely into our new house and my first ultrasound September 5th.
What I miss: The gym, my full energy self and my morning cup of Joe.
