How big is baby? My app says baby is the size of a lemon, but last week it was the size of a peach. I feel like peaches are bigger than lemons so….baby is the size of a really large lemon?

Maternity clothes? Yes, but they are too big. I bought a bunch of these leggings with the full belly panel, but I could honestly wear them as a strapless jumpsuit if I wanted to. Due to the nausea, I can’t stand to have anything tight against my stomach, so normal pants are a no-go. Dresses, over-sized sweaters, and loose belly panel-leggings it is! It’s definitely not the most polished look, but you do what you have to do to deal with 24/7 “morning” sickness. See my favorites at the end of the post!

Sleep? Not great. I never knew I could feel this tired, but I seem to get a second wind every night right about bed time.

Best moment this week? The weekend! Cory and I spent all of Sunday at home, lounging and watching football and the SAG awards. Those are my favorite kind of days. We also figured out that you can order your groceries online at our grocery store, and then you just drive up and they load your car. SO AMAZING, especially since going food shopping is tough for me right now with the queasiness.

Miss anything? I really miss rosΓ©.

Movement? Nope.

Food cravings? I have cried because I’ve been craving in-season, Georgia peaches so badly. Also, yogurt (which I found repulsive pre-pregnancy), chips and queso (which I have always loved), steak, and clementines.

Food aversions? Mayonnaise, turkey, some kinds of cheese. Chocolate has been iffy- some days I can’t stand the thought of it and some days it’s okay, but I still don’t like it like I used to.

Gender? Not sure yet. I can’t wait to find out!

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On, but getting snug.

Mood? Mostly pretty good, but I’ll cry at the drop of a hat, or a slightly sappy commercial, or because I can’t get in-season, Georgia peaches. You know at the beginning of the SAG awards where a few actors talk about how they had always dreamed of becoming an actor and then they say “I’m [so and so], and I’m an actor”? I sobbed.

Any other symptoms? Mostly just fatigue, nausea and headaches. This and these have helped a lot, primarily with the nausea.

Looking forward to? The weekend! The Grammys are on Sunday, and I’m so exited to relax and watch all the red carpet coverage.
