Week 9

November 4, 2012

How far along? 9 weeks

How big is baby? An olive or a grape. Almost an inch long. 

Total weight gain/loss: Gained another pound this week, for a total of ~4.5 pounds gained.

Maternity clothes? Nope...while I am seeing more bloat this week, my clothes are still fitting just fine. I do feel like my bloat is showing more this week more than ever before. I felt very round this afternoon. 

Sleep: OK, I had some rough nights this past week, but they were not directly related to the pregnancy. Tuesday night I tossed and turned...I was so afraid things were going to go poorly with the ultrasound on Wednesday.

Best moment this week: The ultrasound! We met at the dr's on Wednesday afternoon. The Dr was a bit long winded, then we got down to business. First he did a routine pap smear (which was the last painful pap I've ever had), and next thing we know, we're looking at a little blob on the screen. Our little blob. It was awesome. 

Once we got home, I took a picture of the ultrasound and sent it to my aunt and cousins with the text, "Trick or treat!" I got some absolutely awesome reactions. I had my aunt show the picture to my grandmother while I was on the phone with her and attempted to explain what she was looking at. They are all very excited. 

Movement: The only movement I am aware of was seeing the heart beating. 

Food cravings: Dairy and hardy foods. I told the hubs I wanted pot roast and mashed potatoes for dinner. They were delicious. 

Food Aversions: Not a fan of the spinach salad I made to go with dinner was not appealing. 

Gender: This week I'm thinking girl. 

Labor Signs: Thankfully no. 

Pregnancy Symptoms: My nausea has subsided some, and face is thankfully not breaking out this week. It's not completely cleared up, but at least I'm to getting any new zits. I also have had some ridiculous saliva production going on. 

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: People not doting on me. As more people know, they want to check in on me more or tell me I shouldn't do certain things. I love and appreciate that they care, but sometimes it gets to be a bit much. 

What I am looking forward to: We're going up to PA to help move the hubs's grandparents done to VA. We're going to tell them and his uncle that day. 

Upcoming appointments/events: Trying to get our 12 week appointment scheduled. 

Weekly Wisdom: Just one day at a time...

Milestones: I bought my first baby purchase this week. Friday afternoon I popped by Babies R Us. I found a 1st Halloween onesie and sleeper that I picked up for super cheap. Then, while I was at Costco, The Original Christmas Classics hopped into my cart. I can't wait to share them next year!
