8 weeks today!

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
Maternity Clothes:  No, but shadeclothing.com had a sale and I bought 3 cami's and 3 dresses for $60 the other day.

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. 


  1. When I went in for mt 10 week appt, they did not do another pap. My OB told me that as long as I've had one within the last year and it was normal, I didn't have to have another. Hopefully you're in the same boat!

    Good luck lady - you look fantastic. Cheering you on like crazy!!!

  2. The sickness really sucks doesn't it?
