How far along: 9w0d
Baby’s size: 1.22 inches, about the size of a date (whatever that is!)
Total weight gain: Up 2.6 lbs. from egg retrieval.
Maternity clothes: Yes, and still not happy about it.
Stretch marks: I pray never, and so far I’m good!
Sleep: Still tossing and turning quite a bit, and getting up to pee at least once. I’m finding staying up past 8:30pm is difficult. Eric just rolls his eyes as he’s far more a night owl than me 🙂
Symptoms/Feeling: I’m still noticing the nausea from time to time throughout the day. I’m not sure if the Unisom and B6 are still helping, as I’m too afraid to stop them to find out! I feel the worst after dinner at night, and thus bedtime is a little rough.
Best moment of this week: Eric attempted to find the baby’s heartbeat with his stethoscope… At one point he thought he found it, but wasn’t able to find it again for me to hear. It’s still really early though, and I’m still considering ordering a fetal doppler…
Miss anything: I miss eating whatever I want, not worrying about how I’ll feel after…
Movement: My handy Pregnancy+ app tells me baby is now moving its tiny arm and leg buds, although obviously still too soon for me to feel anything.
Food cravings: I’m still craving bagels and cream cheese, which has been my breakfast most mornings lately. And still enjoying at least one honey crisp apple each day. Otherwise though, I’m trying to vary meals. Last Friday night Eric wanted Longhorn, and I was able to eat part of a (well-done) steak and most of a baked potato without feeling too terrible after!
Anything making you queasy or sick: The sight or smell of pasta… I was browsing Pinterest yesterday, you’d be amazed at the number of pasta recipes on there!
Have you started to show yet: No, but still feeling quite bloated. I was hoping some of that would go away once we stopped the progesterone injections last week, but I honestly don’t think that’s the case 🙁
Gender: Too early! But I think we can find out in a few weeks with some other testing we’ll have done.
Labor signs: HAHA, let’s hope not yet!
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Both, I think it depends on if I’m at work or not!
Looking forward to: First OB appointment next Tuesday afternoon, only 8 more days now!
Purchases for baby: The Medela Calma bottle arrived… Has anyone used these? They seem to have a lot of parts! Otherwise, just the Hawkeye onesie I posted a picture of last Friday. The gift shop here at work is so hard to resist!
