My apologies for the grainy, early morning photo...
How Far Along: 5 months (22.5 weeks) today!
Total Weight Gain: I think maybe 10 lbs total
Size of Baby: Nearly 1 whole pound, according to BabyCenter
Maternity Clothes: I waver between my smaller maternity clothes and a few of my flowier (did I just make up a word?) non-preggo clothes. I am definitely looking forward to the cooler fall months so I can break out my sweaters & sweatshirts, though. I'm kinda done looking flabby in tank tops.
Gender: Most definitely a BOY!
Movement: Silly, ticklish little baby kicks. He has days where he's insanely active, and days when I think he might be napping the entire 24 hours.
Sleep: Not a problem yet; it's getting harder to get myself in and out of the bed, though.
What I miss: Pretty much just beer right now. :)
Cravings: Honestly? Baby makes me HUNGRY. Food of any sort. And even though I'm trying to curb the caffeine, there are moments when I just NEED a Coke.
Other crazy symptoms: Nothing much. I'm so used to being pregnant (I've had a kid every other year since 2008) that nothing really surprises me anymore. :)
Best Moment this Month: Seeing that beautiful, healthy baby on the ultrasound screen at my 20-week appointment. I imagine I'll be high-risk by my next update (woohoo, thrombocytopenia!) and that I'll get additional ultrasounds due that, so hey, silver lining here, folks :)
