Happy 4th of July!
I thought today would also be a great day to share our happy news! We are thrilled to become parents! As we move up and on from Okinawa, I am hoping to now use the blog to track the pregnancy so friends and family can be kept in the loop.
How far along? 8 Weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: I actually lost 2 pounds! But I definitely don't feel it!
Maternity clothes? Some friends gave me some hand-me-downs, and I'm telling y'all, elastic band shorts are AWESOME! But I haven't worn them in public yet.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I'm sleeping great, but waking up to go to the bathroom at least twice each night!
Best moment this week: Being able to cook dinner AND dessert without feeling sick! WIN!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Drinking, deli sandwiches, sushi, hot dogs!
Food cravings: I'm not craving anything at all, but about the only thing I'm able to eat are bagels, toast, or other carbs!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm having huge food aversions: salads, veggies, raw meat, certain smells.
Have you started to show yet: Nope, but I am bloated!
Gender prediction: I think it will be a girl, Turf is thinking boy
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy with a few random days of moody!
Looking forward to: Not feeling queasy, tired, headachy ALL.THE.TIME!
