9 Weeks

How far along? 9 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 3lb gain (total 2lb loss from pre-baby weight)


Your baby is the size of a grape (source)

Maternity Clothes?  nope

Stretch marks?  nope

Sleep?  I'm waking up every night to pee in the middle of the night. Last night I got into bed as soon as I got home and woke up at 3am. Got a full 8 hours by 3am! Of course I woke up to tinkle...and went right back to sleep. We went shopping this weekend to get "sleeping bras" which were basically nursing bras. They are more comfortable than regular bras, but too loose when sleeping in them. Might need to take them back for a smaller size. We also bought a 3" memory foam for the bed. The bed is so soft! It's amazing!! I love being in bed! But it is now 3" taller than before, so I have to jump to get in and out of it...that won't work 7 mths from now.

Best moment this week:  First doctor appointment. They weighed me, took blood work, told me the do's and don'ts. I've been googling way too much, so I put myself on a pretty strict diet. Not diet -  meal plan. My nurse was pretty laid back and only said no to sushi, swordfish, smoking and alcohol. She said I can half my caffeine intake. What?! I quit cold turkey!! She didn't seem to worried about lunch meat or soft cheeses. Oh well, I'm watching what I eat. Farmer J was at this appointment and he had a blast, asking all kinds of silly questions. He was super excited during the ultrasound. Nurse said baby was measuring 8 weeks (at 1.6 cm) not 9 weeks...so either it's a small baby or we miscalculated! Does anyone have a DVD or book recommendation for dads-to-be? I have a stack the size of my nightstand by my bed, but J is all alone taking whatever I say and going with it. ha! Who are we kidding, he's questioning everything I say...so a man to man book/DVD suggestion would be GREAT!

Miss Anything?  alcohol, I could really use a cold beverage on a nice patio.

Movement:  none. Well we saw the baby's heart beating really fast on the ultrasound..but I can't hear it or feel it.

Food cravings:  was craving Thai food the other day. I told J "we're going to have a sumo baby, I'm craving Asian food". Actually I'm having more aversions than cravings.

Anything making your queasy or sick?  random things that I liked the day before now sound disgusting. Eggs yesterday yum, eggs today gross! Haven't had any morning sickness!! *knock on wood

Symptoms: Still have that pain in my left hip, now it's going down my left leg. I'm seeing a chiropractor on Thursday so hopefully she'll get me aligned.

Have you started to show yet? Yea, mainly in the breasts and pooch. There was a skinny girl at the doctor's office, same due date as me who was showing a lot so I guess I'm headed in the right direction.

Gender:  unknown.

Labor signs:  none

Belly button in or out?  in

Wedding rings on or off?  on - well I forgot to put them on today :/ oops!

Happy or Moody most of the time?  Moody. I wish I could tell people and get it off my chest. But I want everything to be OK and I want to meet with the Doctor to get the 'OK'. Not looking forward to telling BFF, who's wedding is right around my due date, in another city. Yikes!

Looking forward to: Next doctor's appointment before our Honeymoon in Jamaica with the big reveal!
