3.) Symptoms:  This week was really good!  My hubby was in New Orleans for work so I kept very busy with work.  One thing that I have noticed is that I tend to get full VERY quickly and my eyes are much big than my stomach.

3.)  Symptoms:  This week started off rough, I still had a lot of nausea and major fatigue.  However between yesterday and today I feel pretty damn good!  I’m still not showing too much but my boobs WILL NOT quit growing!  And the bigger the bra the uglier it gets folks!

4.) Cravings:  It’s so cliche but I haven’t been able to stop eating pickles this last week.  Bread and butter pickles to be exact!  I’ve eaten them with literally every single meal.  I can’t get enough!  My mom pointed this out to me last week when I was visiting her for Mother’s Day and I told her I’ve always liked pickles, but its crossed “like land” and now I LOVE them!

5.) Stretch Marks:  None yet…. I drown myself in cocoa butter every day when I get out of the shower so I like to think that it helps!

6.) Movement:  I still haven’t felt anything, but at my doctor’s appointment yesterday she said that’s completely normal and first time mother’s usually won’t feel movement until at least 18 weeks.  We heard the heart beat yesterday and it was 160.  My mid wife said she could hear a TON of movement.  I like to think the baby is in there dancing… I can’t wait to feel it!!!
7.)  Other exciting things this week: This weekend will be spent relaxing and spending time with friends.  My friend Amanda’s birthday was yesterday so we are celebrating this Saturday at a winery… I can’t wait to get “drunk” on cheese and crackers:)!
