I think I look more bloated last week. But last week, the picture was taken at night and this week I had Dre take the picture at noon. Oh well! I'll get bigger before this is over for sure:-)
How far along? 9 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Down .6 pounds overall. And it’s not like I’m eating less or healthy and I’m not throwing up or anything.
Maternity clothes? I wore a Bella Band with my jeans on Saturday, but I found it was a pain in the ass because every time I go to the bathroom I have to readjust it.
Stretch marks? Nope. I’m having a hard time finding a good tummy cream to prevent them though. The Body Shop stuff gave me a rash and the Palmer’s Tummy Butter is really hard to smooth on. I’ll just have to keep looking.
Sleep: Still waking up once a night to go pee.
Best moment this week: Realizing that I made it to 9 weeks which means that the risk of early miscarriage is greatly reduced.
Food cravings: Beef and cheese! Avocado, queso dip, salads, and chocolate cake are also big right now.
Gender: Girl, girl, girl, girl. Man, am I gonna have issues if Smurfy turns out to be a boy or what?
Labor Signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Drinking. This week has been rough…I just really want a glass of wine!
What I am looking forward to: Telling everyone! Can’t wait 3 more weeks and then we announce to the rest of the family and shortly after the world!
Weekly Wisdom: Tell people you’re pregnant. They offer you all the stuff their kids don’t use anymore. I went to my dentist today and my hygienist is a friend of the family and she immediately offered me all her stuff (she has 13 month old twins). Nice!
Milestones: Smurfy is the size of a green olive! Disturbing since I love, love, love olives! Being told I look pregnant, I don’t know if it’s because I’m retaining water already or I’m just bloated!
