Bump update: Week 8

The bloat is back…
Baby stats: Baby is the size of a raspberry, or a half lego brick.  All organs, muscles and nerves are beginning to function.. isn’t that crazy?

Symptoms: Nausea, bloating (big time!), fatigue and still with the extreme thirst.  Breathlessness is back.

Total weight gain: -800gm. I’ve gained 200gm since last week but I’m still less than what I started at.  Beginning to think that this is not going to last long from here on out.

Maternity clothes: No.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve only managed two walks and two core and butt workouts in the last 7 days. I’ve allowed my emotions to get the better of me.

Diet: I’m eating less than I was last week, however it’s more junk food than nutrient dense stuff.  Again, I’ve allowed my emotions to win this week.

Food cravings: Chips! (or potato crisps, depending on where you are from).  Like I generally like chips, but I’ve been craving these like crazy.  Actually, junk food in general has been taking over the cravings.  I feel like my body just needs more energy so it’s craving foods that will give it the ‘quick hit’.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Very emotional this week.  A lot happened, our little boy ended up in hospital over the weekend, I lost out on a business deal that I really, really wanted, and I’ve been eating shite, so nothing has really worked out for the last 7 days.  Here is hoping the next 7 are better!
