We Are Having A Baby!

It's official! The word is finally out!
We can hardly contain our excitement! I have promised myself that I will be such a great blogger while I am pregnant and especially once we have a baby.
So here it goes! I want to document everything! Each week I'll be posting a new pic and new stats on the little one.

This time around I am doing an update/review of all of the weeks leading up to now.

How far along? 9 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Well... just about two weeks ago I was down close to 10 pounds (it was the nausea) and now I'm back up to normal weight!
Maternity clothes? Haven't even thought about them yet.
Stretch marks? Once again, they better not be crossing my mind for a while!
Sleep: Who knew you wake up to pee in the middle of the night ALREADY?! So not loving this...
Best moment this week: We had our first doctors visit! Everything seems healthy and we saw the baby on an ultrasound machine. It was so tiny and perfect! We got a little misty eyed...
Have you told family and friends? This is our formal announcement for those of you who we haven't seen in person yet!
Miss anything? Having a normal relationship with food. Also sleeping through the night and not worrying about my stomach every five minutes.
Food cravings: Nothing even sounds good. I am still waiting to get those cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick: EVERYTHING! No puking involved, but I can't get through a normal day without feeling like I am about to!
Have you started to show yet? I'd like to think so. At night my belly looks way bigger than it normally does. But during the day I just have a slight pooch.
Gender prediction: Typical... I'd love a Girl, Steve really wants a Boy.
Belly button in or out? In.
Happy or moody most of the time: I hate to say it, but I'm moody. I just get so mad about constantly being sick!
Looking forward to: Getting over this nausea! They say it usually goes away around 14 weeks. So I'm counting down the days!

As you can see I have been feeling miserable. I have been through such a roller coaster of ups and downs with my nausea. I still have yet to make it through one day of feeling like I am normal again. But that's what comes with bringing a life into this world! We are so thrilled and wouldn't change any of this for the world!

  2. YAY!! We are so SO excited for you guys...u have lots to look forward to! We can't wait for a new cousin! I totally empathize with the nausea and hope it gets better really soon.

    I didn't start wearing maternity clothes til the last trimester with lucy. I got a bellaband (I got the off brand at target, can't remember the name) and it was awesome! didn't buy any maternity pants!
    I think you guys are gonna have a boy... that's my prediction. :)
