Symptoms: None at all. I am feeling great!! My extreme hunger from last week has settled down, as well, thankfully!
Weight Gain: Only up about a 1/2 pound. But apparently in my next trimester I can expect to gain 2-3 pounds a week. (Wonderful...) No, but really, I'm ready for my baby bump to make it's appearance. I really don't have one at all currently and with no symptoms to speak of I really don't feel very pregnant.
Cravings: Peppermint Ice Cream and Christmas! I'm not sure why, but I have been obsessed with celebrating Christmas for the past few months. Usually I'm the kind of person that wants to enjoy one holiday at a time, but right now I am chomping at the bit to put our tree up and have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head! I haven't given in yet- but it's been tough. I did cave on the peppermint ice cream last night though and it was glorious. Maybe Mason and I are the proud parents of Buddy the Elf!
Mason and I are anxiously awaiting our next doctor's appointment this Tuesday! If everything is good with baby we will announce the news of our precious plum to the world (aka Facebook)! :)
