How Far Along: 9 weeks
Size of Baby: Baby Smithwick is nearly an inch long — about the size of a green olive or grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: No loss. No gain.
Maternity Clothes: Regular clothes for now. I did go ahead and buy some skirts with an elastic waistband from Ann Taylor Loft last weekend while they were 40% off. I figured I'd need them soon.
Gender: We still have a ways to go before we find out. Check back in September.
Movement: No movement. It's too early.
Cravings: Strawberries, Mexican food and milk (but not together). I may or may not have had Mexican 7 times in the past 6 days.
Aversions: None, thankfully.
Symptoms: Hunger and fatigue. I'm also starting to get mini-headaches. Thankfully, I haven't had morning sickness.
Labor Signs: None. WAY too early.
What I Miss: Sleeping on my tummy and back. I'm in the process of training myself to sleep on my sides. It isn't going so well.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Seeing the baby again next week!
Weekly Wisdom: Still Rest. Rest. Rest. And eat healthy snacks.
Best Moment This Week: Going to look at baby furniture and discussing baby names.
