Franklet Update

One of my sorority sisters is also pregnant, and just a few weeks behind me. She has been doing some really fun updates on her blog...so I thought I would start this on my own.

                       Size of the baby?  
About 6 inches long and 1/2 pound
The size of a large mango....


Maternity Clothes?  
I am officially now in exclusively maternity clothes. With the exception of dresses. They're pretty comfy, but I have to say, it's tough to look at a closet full of clothes that you cannot wear. But, you better believe I WILL be wearing those clothes again soon. Well maybe not soon, but again.
My favorite maternity clothes? Gap. Or the crazy expensive designers, but practically speaking, Gap.

Stretch marks?  
Nope, not yet, but I have been vigilant about lotion. They say it doesn't really help, but it makes me feel like I'm doing something to help the cause.

Best Moments?  
Sitting in a meeting at work and feeling the baby move all around. I swear, during my annual review, the baby was in the midst of a Zumba class. I have a distinct feeling this kid is going to have a very high energy level, like it's mother.

Movement? 
I'm feeling more and more each day. I can't wait for everyone else to see/feel it.

Food Cravings? 
 
Not really. Last night I really wanted a smoothie with dinner. Jeremy thought I was nuts, and convinced me that a smoothie was not the ideal side dish to flat-bread pizza. But I am still sad I didn't get my smoothie. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Chicken, white fish and broccoli.



What I'm looking forward to?  
Next Wednesday we have our 20 week ultrasound and will find out the gender of the Franklet!!!!! I absolutely do not care one way or the other, but I must know what it is. I feel like I have a stranger living inside of me, at a minimum, I need to know if its a boy or girl.

Symptoms? 
INDIGESTION. Holy Hannah. No more spicy food. No more greasy food. No more laying down after eating meals for 2 hours. Oh my gosh I feel as though my esophagus is on fire.
  One of my friends said that some people believe indigestion during pregnancy is tied to the hormone that grows hair on the baby's head. Well, this must be one hairy baby.

Gender? 
6 days, and we'll let you know!
