I was originally going to start my updates at week 10, but I got too anxious so I decided to start a week early! :) I had a couple of ideas as to what I wanted to do with these photos, I kind of wanted to do them outside but decided that due to weather it might make it difficult. Then I thought that maybe I could do them in from of my window so you could still see the change of seasons but I couldn't make the photos look good due to too much background light. So I decided to do them in front of my fireplace, where you can still see the 'change of season' due to my decorations.
I also am planning to take a nontraditional 'bump' photo each week, I'll start doing that next week. :)
So here we go! My first bump update post!
How Far Along: 9 weeks!
How Big Is Baby: Baby is the size of a green olive!
Total Weight Gain: I haven't checked in a while, but last time I checked I was about 4 pounds higher than my pre-pregnancy weight.
Sleep: Sleep is great! I feel pretty tired during the day so I always sleep just fine.
Best Moment Of The Week: I started my new job on Monday!! That was exciting! I also got to do my first real pregnancy massage on someone and it went great! :) It was kind of weird to think that there were 4 people in the massage room instead of just 2. :)
Food Cravings: I had a friend tell me that he didn't believe pregnancy cravings were real (which I suppose makes sense) so I'm interested to see if I really feel like I am having specific cravings rather than regular non-pregnant cravings. So far, not craving anything in particular.
Food Aversions: Anything with too strong of a smell, like my husbands sardines or hot dogs. Nothing sounds good when I'm hungry so it's been kind of hard to decide what to eat.
Nausea- Not bad, just a little queasy when I get hungry. There was one evening this week that was particular bothersome, but still not bad enough to throw up or anything.
Cramping- Very slight, only every once a while. I still hate when it happens though, I'm afraid something is wrong when I feel it but it's never bad.
Other- Mild fatigue, breakouts, slightly heightened emotions, sore boobies.
Gender: No idea! When asked what we are hoping for we never have a real answer. At the moment neither of us have a preference! Just healthy! Please be healthy!!
What I'm Looking Forward To: I can't wait to start showing!! I want this bump to get bigger! :)
What I Miss: Not a whole lot yet! I even kind of like my negative symptoms because it means I'm pregnant and I love that!! :) Not even missing certain foods either because usually nothing sounds good.
Next Doctor Appointment: October 30th! (Pretty sure it's going to be an ultrasound appointment and I can't wait!)
