How far along: 8 weeks
Baby Size: A raspberry or a quarter
Weight: 122.6 (down .2lbs)
- The nausea has started. It's constantly there, but at times it's not as bad. Sometimes I can get up and do things, and other times all I want to do is lay down in bed. Jolly ranchers have been helping me.
- And my boobs are hurting a lot
Sleep: It's been better. Sunday night was pretty rough (I have a cold and was up most of the night coughing). Last night I was up a lot, but was able to fall back asleep (although freezy pops helped and I ate several in the middle of the night).
Cravings/Food Aversions: No real cravings, but when I wake up usually I'm hungry and nothing sounds good to eat. I don't usually eat until later in the day and then I want to eat everything.
Belly Button: In
Gender: No guesses. I'm still trying to convince Rob to be team green, but I think I'll probably give in and we will find out.
Name: I 'think' we have names, but I'm not to worried yet.
Milestones: Every day I'm still pregnant is a milestone for me.
Looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat again.
What I miss: I miss the feeling that I accomplished stuff on my day off. All I do is sit around the house. I miss sleeping with Rob. He is always sleeping in the spare bedroom because I keep him up.
Appointments: Thursday @10. It's my first ob appointment. It will probably be the whole pee in a cup, take my blood, pap smear (Although I had one in December so I don't really need another do I?). I think I will have an ultrasound also.
Misc. I developed a cold over the weekend. I am thankful that I had yesterday and today off. Yesterday was awful, today has started out a little better. I have taken Robitussin which was on the 'safe' list, but I still get nervous taking it. I've been using vapor rub and cough drops, and trying to drink lots of water.
Keeping the pregnancy a secret really hasn't been that difficult. Rob has had a hard time though. My sisters in-laws all know, partly because Rob works with/for them.
I did kind of want to tell my sister-in-law. I saw her Saturday and she knows about the losses. She was asking me about the progesterone and how it was going. I did tell her I was switched to an oral form. She goes to the same office (different doctor), and we were talking ultrasounds and I said I would probably get an early one. She said she got one at 9 weeks and asked if I meant before that. I said 'yeah, probably,' knowing that I've already had one, hehe. I don't think she thinks anything though. I want it to be a surprise when we do share the news.
