9 weeks

How far along:  9 weeks

Baby Size:  A marble or a green olive

Weight:  123.3

The bloat has begun; sharp cramps which I'm pretty sure are gas pains. 

Maternity Clothes:  No, but I am running out of jeans that fit. Luckily I can wear sweatpants to work. My maternity clothes I ordered came in. 2/3 dresses I don't like. I haven't tried the cami's.

Sleep:  It's been better.  I haven't really napped in a while.  I'm trying to get better about going to bed earlier.  It's tough because by the time Rob and I get home and make and eat dinner it's usually 6:30 and he wants to watch tv or hang out and I just want to go to bed.

Cravings/Food Aversions:  Food usually sounds disgusting.  I'm trying to make myself eat more because I feel worse on an empty stomach, but it's tough when the thought of eating makes me gag.  Popsicle's help.

Belly Button: In

Gender:  Still no vibes either way.  If it's a boy he will have a boy cousin about 5 months older (Due late April).  If it's a girl she will have a girl cousin about a year older (born October 9).

Name:  Not sure

Milestones:  It was great to hear that baby measured exactly where it should be at last weeks appointment. The heartbeat seemed faster than last time although I wasn't sure what it was at exactly

Looking forward to:  Telling people.  Rob has wanted to tell everyone for a long time, but I haven't been ready to.  I said after my appointment last week, but now I keep saying after my 12 week appointment.  My sister had a baby shower last weekend, and has a few more coming up and I don't want to take anything away from her.

What I miss:  I miss being able to eat whatever I want. I miss having sex (and I know Rob does) like we used to.  It used to be 4-5 times a week.  Now we are lucky to have it twice.  I feel worse in the evenings/night so it's tough.

Appointments:   March 19.  My 12 week appointment

Misc.  I refilled my progesterone last week.  It cost me $10 for 60 pills.  Last time I filled it, the exact same thing, it cost me $210.  Crazy.

My sister had her first baby shower this weekend.  I felt like I had a huge I'm pregnant sign on my forehead. I'm sure her friend knew (I talked about her in this post).  I didn't ask my sister if she told her, but considering my sister told me that she was pregnant, I'm sure it was vice versa.  I love my sister but sometimes she's not a good secret keeper.  Sorry Ali!  Her mother in law and sister in law were there, and I know they know, but they didn't say anything.

This is my in my pajama's, not feeling well, going to bed, I forgot to take a picture face.
Still lots of bloat (although it looks worse here, than it really is)


  1. Hi. I found your blog today doing a picket fence blog search for "pregnancy". I just started a pregnancy blog but I'm still in TTC mode. This post is adorable. I wish I had done something like this for my first two kids. 7 years went by so fast and now I have forgotten all the details. Good luck and I'll be following your pregnancy. =) To learn more about me, click me name. =)

  2. Thanks so much for sharing at the Baby Shower - look forward to seeing you at this week's party Alice x
