Feeling: Good this week! Sleeping more on my side, sciatic nerve pain is almost totally gone. I’ve been extra tired this week, but other than that I’ve had a great week!
I definitely feel like I’m showing now! I had a coworker who knows tell me she think so too. I checked myself out from the side on Monday and could tell it no longer looks like a gut, it’s looking like a rounded belly- small, but there. I know it’s not huge and I’m still doing my best to conceal it most the time, but it’s getting harder these days! I may have to break down and buy some shirts a size bigger or even maternity items. At least for this pic I remembered to wear some knit and try to show some of the progress.
I gained back the lb I was down last week. Half of an ounce went straight to the baby’s weight, that’s pretty exciting to me!
Sleeping: I’ve had no many weird dreams this week it’s been crazy! One night I was in college dating Biff from Back to the Future. I knew it was a bad idea, but I just so didn’t care. They only get weirder from there, so we’ll just leave it at that!
I’ve been waking up a few more times a night which isn’t fun. I’m hoping it’s due to my husband being out of town all week, I never sleep as well without him. Here’s to hoping next week is better.
Fitness: I’m running and walking pretty much daily. I’m still doing some planks and abs while I still can, I know I’m down to only a few more weeks of those! I’ll add in more pilates when the HIIT becomes too hard, but for the most part my go-to morning run is working best.
Craving: I think I could eat Chick-Fil-A nuggets and fries for every meal right now. Getting a kid’s meal with nuggets, fries, and diet lemonade has been an every-other-day kind of thing. Just typing that out made me salivate. I’ve been pretty healthy so far, but I guess if baby wants to be made of chicken nuggets so be it.
I am feeling the baby move! I know it’s early, but this is one wired kid always moving around. I can feel it each time I sit down to rest, after many meals, and on occasion, it just seems to flip around causing a sort of cramp in the area.
I’m excited that we’re almost to the end of the first trimester and in a much better place with risk. I can hardly wait to make the big announcement to the rest of the world!

Wait, I think you meant you're almost to the end of the first trimester, not the third 😉 You would definitely be showing if you were in the third! 😀 Glad to see you are showing a little bump. So cute!! Oh man do I remember having those weird dreams. I had one recurring dream that I was having kittens, not a human baby. It totally freaked me out! They were so vivid and real. Loving these updates!
I totally remember waiting and waiting to look like I was obviously pregnant! I just wanted people to notice I was pregnant instead of having to tell them I was. And unlike some women, I was pretty excited to purchase some maternity clothes.
