9 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 9 weeks today.

Size of baby: Nearly an inch long, the size of a grape.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: So far I think I've gained about 2 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. But some of my pants are starting to fit a little tighter.

Gender: We should be able to find out in about 9 weeks. Sometime in mid May. I can't wait. :-)

Movement: Not yet, its still too early.

Food Cravings: None so far.

What I miss: Not feeling nauseous.

Sleep: Sleeping just fine, in fact I can't seem to get enough sleep, no matter how much I sleep.

Symptoms: I feel nauseous off an on, all day long. I have a heightened sense of smell and most smells make the nauseous feeling even worse. I do think the nauseous feeling is starting to subside to some degree. As long as I don't let myself get hungry, the nauseous feeling is manageable. I feel tired all the time too.

Best Moment this week: Getting to see our baby on an ultrasound. :-) Seeing the little heartbeat made being pregnant feel more real.

What I am looking forward to: The second trimester, when everyone says I'll start to feel better. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. Appt. on Apr. 12th, when we'll get to hear the heartbeat.
