Well, this blog is just going to be the survey and a picture because I’m pretty sure that I have the flu, or am at least at the tail end of it. It started last Tuesday night, and Wednesday I had to call off of work. So, for the past three days my couch, the toilet and I have become wonderful friends. Although, I don’t know how I feel about the toilet just yet……
How Far Along? 9 weeks today. Or, by my new OB that didn’t give an ultrasound, 10 weeks tomorrow.
Total weight gain: I haven’t weighed myself since last Saturday, and I was the same as my last post. None gained or lost.
Cravings: Toast. Mostly because it doesn’t really have a scent, and my mother-in-laws homemade cranberry banana jam is amazing!
Maternity clothes? None yet, but my stomach is starting to show, I think. This could be just because of the flu and the pressure the sickness is putting on my stomach, but I have to wear my gaucho pants that basically don’t have a waistline. It feels like I’m not wearing anything at all, and that is sooo nice!
Sleep: The past couple of days I have slept on the couch, and that can be a little uncomfortable, but I think I’m getting more sleep. I don’t think I’m getting up in the middle of the night as much, just waking up to switch sides.
Best moment this week: Finding a really great website that has videos of a few different types of birth and the stage of the baby. It’s a tad more real, and I must say, I am now a little freaked out about the birth. Not scared, just freaked out. I feel like I should buy those women a dinner after seeing so much of them.
Movement: From stomach to throat to mouth to toilet, yes. I have finally thrown up. Man, is that disgusting.
Labor Signs: Nope, nope, nope. There should be sections of this survey for the different trimesters.
Belly Button in or out? Still definitely in.
What I miss: Now, I miss cooking. Found out a few days ago that I can no longer tolerate the scent of ANYTHING cooking. That makes this a little more difficult.
What I am looking forward to: My next ultrasound when we get to hear the baby’s heartbeat – Feb. 4! 🙂
Weekly Wisdom: If you have to throw up, just do it. Don’t try to stop it or hold it back because then you’ll just feel worse.
Milestones: Huh. I think maybe a little to early to have it be anything other than my first ultrasound.
