Total weight gain/loss? +18-20 pounds
Maternity clothes? We're still getting there. I just bought a pair of maternity jeans due to the ones I have from my pregnancy with Ella still being too big, but my regular jeans just barely making it anymore. Because it's been so hot, though, I've been living in running shorts and sports bras, so who needs special maternity clothes when you have such comfy, stylin' clothes like that? ;)
Stretch marks? Nope. Though, I fear this pregnancy is going to do me in here. I am carrying straight out with this baby, whereas with Ella, I was definitely out, but carried her a bit wider. My stomach is stretching at rapid speeds. Painfully so.
Oh, and a linea negra (I know it's not a stretch mark, but I don't know where else to put this tidbit) started to appear at this time with Ella, but I'm showing no signs of one this time. Interesting ...
Sleep? Still not super awesome. Some nights are amazing - I fall asleep right away and I don't wake up until morning. But most nights, I toss and turn, the baby moves a ton and keeps me awake, then I fall asleep and continue to wake up throughout the night - to pee, because my arm is numb, because I'm on my back and it's uncomfortable, because I'm thirsty, because I'm hot - you get the idea.
Movement? Alllllll the time!
Food cravings? I'm just loving froyo right now. But who am I kidding, when do I not love froyo?
Gender? I am definitely carrying differently this time. I don't put much into the old wives tales, but it's still fun to speculate that because I'm carrying completely differently and because this pregnancy has been the complete opposite of Ella's, I'm for sure having a boy ;)
Labor signs? Pelvic pressure like whoa. And good ol' Braxton Hicks. But obviously, nothing like, "Ohmygoodness, I'm in labor!" signs.
Belly button in/out? Out. It can't even be concealed in shirts anymore. It's just loud and proud.
What I miss: Back to missing an ice cold beer. ::sigh::
What I am looking forward to: Ella's 2nd (!?!?) birthday. Getting all of the rooms in our house painted - finally.
