The heartbeat has been all over the place. I think it was 164 last time. Honestly, I haven't remembered the others.
The symptoms: no particular cravings, just have to wait until the moment before I eat to see what I feel like having. I do consistently want cheese cubes at 2:30 AM. The baby is up from 2:00-3:30 in the night usually. Other foods, I love them one day and hate them the next.
I have bad nausea and vomiting but some days are much better than others. Yesterday I lost all my meals, fluids, etc. 9 times through the day. So gross. The day before I had felt ok and not vomited. The heartburn is the same. Some days horrible, some not.
I have gained 20 lbs!!! Something for not being able to eat most of the time.
I also have a bad pinched nerve.
On the good days this pregnancy is better than the other ones, on bad days it's the worst.
Yes, we have a definite girl's name because we had one on backup for the first 2 boys. It will be the same name we've had picked out. We also had a boy's name already picked out. (in fact, had 2 boys' names and 2 girls' on backup in case it was twins, as we feared at first b/c of all the weight gain. It's not though!!)
My hair is fine. I've never had a skin tag... that grosses me out. I'm really glad.
I'll tell you I went into a new bra immediately after finding out and since then already sized up to my old nursing bra sizes.
