As my first official post on The Wilsonian Institute, I thought it was only fitting that I post a pregnancy update to balance out years of boy-posts. If you aren't fascinated by all things baby/pregnancy, this post probably won't be for you. Now, let's kick the estrogen up a notch ;)
*Disclaimer: My belly looks extra pronounced in this picture, which I believe is a result of a) me sticking it out a little bit and b) hand placement.
How far along? 14 weeks! I know I've still got another 26 to go, but I am SO thankful to be in my second trimester! The Lord has been so gracious throughout this pregnancy and I can't wait to see what's next!
How big is baby Wilson? The size of a navel orange.
Maternity clothes? Sometimes. I'm still a little small for most things, but if I can get away with wearing a stretchy waistband, I'm doing it.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Yes, please. I'm finally sleeping through the night now that I don't have to wake up every morning at 4 AM to pee.
Best moment this week: This was technically last week, but seeing baby Wilson move around on the ultrasound was the best! We got to see legs, arms, the heartbeat, his/her face and a ton of movement!
Miss Anything? Sushi, unsweet tea and diet coke.
Movement: Just what we could see on the ultrasound. Can't wait to start feeling the "flutters" I keep hearing about!
Food cravings: Nothing too distinctive, but I could definitely put away some Marie Calendars Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Apples. I've decided to boycott them for the rest of this pregnancy.
Gender predictions: I've been thinking boy, but Jeremy keeps saying he has no idea.
Labor Signs: No. PTL!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: It's kind of a toss-up. I'd say happy and SLEEPY most of the time, but Jeremy might beg to differ ;)
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender!
