Maternity clothes: Still just the hair tie on my button.
Sleep: Have a little more energy this week, so I haven't been needing to go to bed quite as early. Not napping as much, either.
Medication: Most days, I'm only taking one.
Gender: I'm still team girl and Jake is team boy. Two weeks until the doctor tries to find gender!
Food cravings: I have just discovered that if I can force myself to eat small amounts of food throughout the day, it helps with nausea a ton! I think the sickness might be fading away a little. Hopefully! I have been craving sandwiches so much, but I know I'm not supposed to eat deli meat, so I try not to eat it as much as I really want to.
Food aversions: Still can't do Moe's. :'( In the beginning I wanted sushi or Chinese food a lot, but that sounds awful to me now.
Mood: Hmmm...I guess you could say I have been a little moody this week. I was in the office working on some vinyl decals and Jake was watching TV in the living room, which made a thought pop into my head that we were acting more like roommates instead of husband and wife which turned into a little meltdown. All because we were in separate rooms. Geez, poor Jake. I also notice that I'm getting a little more emotional than usual. I am normally stone cold, not much of a crier. Jake calls me "not easily moved." Ha! I cried at least twice in the past week! Once, I will share about on a later question, and once because I drove by the little old church I grew up in, which made me think about some people and made me miss them, so I cried a lot.
Movement: Everything I read says there's lots of movement going on in there, the baby is just still too small for me to feel it.
Milestones: Heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time! We saw the heartbeat at our first two appointments, but I got to hear it for the first time on Friday. That day, I was getting a little overwhelmed thinking about how expensive infant childcare is and as I was on my way home from hearing the heartbeat, it was like God just said "I created that baby and you are worried about me taking care of you? Have I ever failed you before?" It gave me such peace knowing that I have nothing to worry about and that it's all in His hands. That was the other time I cried that I was referencing earlier in the post.
Best moments of the week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat!
Verses I've been dwelling on: "You will keep in perfect peace, him whose mind is steadfast, because He trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal." -Isaiah 26:3
