Sorry this is a few days late, it has been a bit of a rough week. I have had a few really bad days where I really didn’t get anything done! So I thought I better get this post up here before the week is over! I am officially 9 weeks as of Wednesday, which is so exciting! I am so ready for the first trimester to be over with, I hear it is the worst. I think life would be so much easier without all the morning sickness!
I just have to say I am so so so thankful for Adam! He is going to the store, running errands and such when I can’t. Lately I just feel so sick I can’t, he has stepped up so much. It is nice to have him willing to go and do everything even after a long day at work. He truly is such a wonderful husband, best friend, and I know he will be a great father!
Here is my pregnancy update for 9 weeks, what has been going on with me and little baby!
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a Grape/Olive this week.
Sleeping: This week I have actually been sleeping a bit better. I still wake up a few times a night to go to the bathroom and then I am able to fall asleep pretty quickly. That is a really nice change from not sleeping!
Morning Sickness: Has been a pretty rough week, one of the worst. I have been nauseated a lot and having a good amount of aches and pains in my stomach. It is just super tender feeling and cramping here and there and having some sharp pains randomly. From what I have read online that is all normal, the uterus is growing and such, and making room for our little sweetie pie.
Symptoms: I have had a few more headaches this week, so far I have been lucky and had very few. I am a bit more tired, I have noticed I get annoyed easier at times. I have cried so much lately, I am just really emotional over things. I think just not feeling good for so long, is just wearing on me, and still not sleeping a ton doesn’t help. Like I said above, I have had a tender tummy, and getting some good pains here and there.
Cravings: I am really wanting Subway a lot, I wish I could eat cold sandwiches, but I toast them and deal with it. I was really wanting ice cream a good amount, mashed potatoes with white gravy, and cheese. I have been struggling with eating much, the nausea has gotten worse so I force myself to eat.
Food Aversions: Anything that has much scent like beans, onions, and such are the worst. I am a mix on scents it is a little better and then there are days where every smell makes me sick. It is crazy!
Best Moment of the Week: We are looking at moving into a new country home. It will be our forever home, so to stop and think about all the room we will have is exciting. We will have so much room for a nursery, toy room, and more for our sweet little baby! It has a nice back yard so we can have a nice play set put up, it is just exciting thinking about how it will be a perfect home for our family!
Dr. Appointment: I have my first appointment next week, I am a little nervous but excited too. We will get to hear the baby’s heartbeat for the first time!
