Weekly Check-In

How far along? 8w4d, I believe we're almost an olive!!!
Weight gain/loss: 0
Sleep? Not as much, the drop dead exhaustion is getting a little more manageable
Best moment this week? 3rd ultraound showed a perfect baby with a heartbeat of 180 BPM!
Movement: Umm, definitely not!
Food cravings: Finally craving healthier food (fruits and veggies) like I did the whole time with the twins
Belly button in or out? In, hopefully for awhile
What I miss? Nothing really
What I am looking forward to? Surgery Day
Milestones: arms and legs are sprouting!
What I'm nervous about: Trying to have another anxiety-free week, so... nothing!

UPDATE on the "mass" - my RE said that it just looks like a corpus luteum cyst and it's getting smaller, so nothing to worry about.  My right ovary was much bigger than my left, so it's still there, but she says it's nothing to worry about.  Good news!

Baby looked great at u/s today, s/he actually looked like a curled up cocktail shrimp - I can't wait for the bean to get bigger so we can see arms and legs waving around!  The surgery date is coming VERY quickly and I'm trying to make a list of things we have to get done before we leave the state for a week, but by the time I get home, I have no energy to do anything besides throw something together for dinner, clean up the kitchen (perfectly, since we've been having ant invasions) and read Sookie Stackhouse novels.  I just finished #10, so I'm pretty sad about that.  I started My Antonia by Willa Cather, but it's definitely not pulling me in as much as the Stackhouse novels...  Hmmm, classic novel vs. mass market vampire thriller.  It's like Kashi vs. Froot Loops for your health.
