Overall Feeling: The past two weeks have brought the aches and pains in full force. Growing pains in my belly, aches in my back, and pains in my neck...yikes! I haven't been sleeping very well so I dragged Mr. G out to Babies 'R Us to find the Snoogle. Now, what is a "Snoogle" you ask...well...it's only the mother of all pregnancy pillows (says so on the package!)! It looks something like this...
Yes, I realize it looks like an alien of sorts, but let me assure you that it is indeed the "mother of all pregnancy pillows!" Mr. G about passed out when he saw how much it was and he keeps telling me that I owe him a "snoogle" (and not the pillow kind of snoogle either...) now, but you know what? I don't care...the pillow is amazing and worth every.single.penny!
Food Cravings/Aversions: Still not craving anything although I'm still loving watermelon and strawberries. I've actually lost some weight (weird right??) since before I got pregnant so I'm trying my best to make sure I get my daily calories. The doctor didn't seem too worried about my losing some pounds right now, but she did say that if it keeps happening then she would be worried. I've been keeping a close eye on it and...of course I haven't felt guilty about having a chocolate chip cookie from Starbucks every now and then!
Highlight(s) of the week: I'm finally feeling like I'm starting to look pregnant! I went out and bought a few new shirts, but so far I've been able to wear my own clothes still. I know it's just a matter of time before I have to go buy new pants and shorts!
