This time around I like to sleep on my right side, I read an old wives tale about how baby genders will make you preference your sleeping side. With jaiden I kicked my husband out of his side of the bed because I preferred the left side... and face it I am kind of closterphobic so I don't like anything near my face or I feel as if I'm being suffocated. With this feeling I have to be at whatever side of the bed I feel most comfortable, which is usually my right side. I am happy to say so far I have been loyal to my side of the bed! The old wives tale speaks of boys making their mothers prefer their left side (which happened to me) and girls make us prefer our right side. Hmmmm can you imagine a mini me running around?? My entire family is hoping for a girl. Oddly, I never thought I wanted one but this pregnancy it's all I can think of. With Jaiden I said it from the very beginning its a boy and his name is Jaiden. There was no changing my mind. This time around i keep thinking of a certain girl name... You'll have to wait till the gender reveal to find out what it is ;)
I have taken a craving to tomatoes this week. Something I used to love growing up and since I was maybe 20 havent done since. Just as is, maybe I'll slice them so I can sprinkle salt over them but I just like the juices that come from them whole. Tomatoes are extremely good for your skin in which I need because this little booger has me braking out like if I'm going through puberty. (0_0) I never went through this as a teen.. Of course it would happen now. Another wives tale says girls steal your beauty and cause pimples and blotches. I swear little booger if you are a girl and you give me any blotches on my face you won't shave your legs until graduation!! Haha.
Any minute my husband should either punch me or throw me over a cliff. I know my attitude is going from 0-60 (nothing new) but now even more because of smells. I smell EVERYTHING!! Cleaning supplies are seriously killing me, I wanted to sleep in the car the other night. It was intolerable but then again... so was I. Driving passed I think a park.. I don't know but I mentioned smelling green mangos, which was off because the season is gone. I have always had a good sense of sight and smell, sight is the same but smell.. Omg it's insane. Imagine if my sight can improve also, I'll start seeing sounds or even better see through walls. Hahha.
This week little booger is the size of an Olive, 0.9 inches.
She/He is no longer an embryo but is now an actual fetus. Heartbeat can now start to be heard, my next appointment is Oct 20 I'll be sure to hear it then.
Ps. Constipation sucks!! I almost cried because my husband interrupted me once when I was FINALLY taking a crap.
