.. I'm directly in the middle of the typical 1st trimester. The nausea, exhaustion and overall BLAH feeling it's beginning to take it's toll. I'm trying to stay positive (at least I haven't vomited yet!) but it's hard when I'm feeling so yucky 24/7. The only thing that keeps the nausea at bay is eating.. which is also taking it's toll. I've always tried to maintain a healthy body & weight -- getting pregnant is making this a tad difficult. I'm pushing through and repeating to myself... "I'm not fat, I'm pregnant!" :)
Josh has been an amazing daddy-to-be. He is extremely attentive and puts up with my complaints with a smile on his face. I cannot wait until the baby is here - he will be an incredible father.
I have officially picked out the baby bag in modern magenta-- Buy meeee <3
|7 weeks! Perhaps the funniest picture.. I took one in a bra at first but decided it was too risky for my blog. Josh thought it would be funny to wear this shirt. I think you can see my belly well enough!|
•How far along?: 7 weeks!!! :)
•How big is baby?: The baby is now a BLUEBERRY!! It's amazing how fast the little bugger is growing!!!
•Weight gain: I have gained an additional 2 pounds for a total weight gain of FOUR pounds. This is NOT good. I know I'm eating more but it's all fairly healthy food! I hope it's bloat or tissue or something else. We had a wedding on Saturday for our dear friends, Ariel & Rich, and the dress I bought just last month was tight. EEEEK!
•Stretch marks?: None. Yet. Staying optimistic.
•Maternity clothes?: No. Not yet. My clothes still feel good (minus that dress) so I'm going to hold out for as long as possible!
•Sleep?: Constant.. but I always wake up tired and feeling worse. The mornings seem to be the hardest.
•Food cravings?: I've been craving saltines and fruit.
•Gender?: I change my mind constantly. I keep having baby girl dreams.
•Movement?: Negative..so excited for this part.
•Labor signs?: Negative.. don't want any for the next 33 weeks!
•Belly button in or out?: In.
•What I miss: Feeling healthy.. and thin. But it's worth it. SO very worth it.
•Milestone: 5 weeks to go until the 1st trimester is complete!!! <3
