Total weight gain: 9lbs...slow and steady
Maternity clothes? you betcha!  Rocking the maternity dresses and a couple non-maternity ones
Stretch marks? ok the love handles -- womp womp
Sleep: a couple of rough nights this week but I have a body pillow now and slept through the night without waking up at all so that's a win in my book
Best moment this week: telling my students that I'm pregnant.  They have really been fantastic....between offering to block my way through the halls to carrying my stuff around and walking me to class.  It's really sweet to see how much they care about me and the bean.
Miss anything? being able to walk up to the third floor without being terribly out of breath
Movement: he's just a jumping jelly bean in there
Food cravings: pizza, chicken salad, bacon
Anything making you queasy or sick: bending over

Belly button in or out? Innie but it's definitely closing up
Wedding rings on or off? On and hopefully it stays that way

Best moment this week: the reactions from our little gender announcement - Bob making me strawberry and chocolate pancakes for breakfast - bean kicking when Bob finally gets home and puts his hand on my belly
Miss anything? fresh mozz
Movement: all of the time -- bean especially likes to move around while I'm driving, right after I eat, and before bed
Food cravings: cinnamon rolls
Anything making you queasy or sick: stop and go traffic -- true story -- got sick in the car on my way to the first day back to school bc of stop and go traffic.  Thankfully my sister lives near work so I stopped at her house and stole clothes and my mom happened to be there watching my nephew so she washed my gross clothes
