9 Weeks

8 Weeks
9 Weeks

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.
Movement: None. 
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!


  1. Hello, I just started reading your blog (via Bump website) and I just noticed your comment about the stretch mark cream. Have you tried the Palmer's Stretch Mark Cream? Not the butter, it's an actual lotion. I used it my whole pregnancy last time and it worked wonderfully. And since it's just a regular lotion it's not very hard to smooth on.

  2. Yeah, I did notice that they had the lotion, but I thought the butter would be more moisturizing. I think I'll stick with the lotion from now on.
