8 Weeks Pregnant

I’ve been feeling quite sick lately and taking every second of it as a good sign.  I decided to start back up my pregnancy journal- I took the one I had done in the past and kept some of the questions but also changed some of them.  So here goes- Happy 8 weeks to the little peanut in my belly!!

How far along: 8 weeks and 2 days (you are the size of a cute little kidney bean)

Total weight gain: +0 lbs (I’ve been holding steady at my normal weight so far- the sickness helps!)

Maternity clothes: Not yet! Everything still fits the same, but I sure do love coming home from work and throwing on my favorite pair of sweats- this has nothing to do with being pregnant though…I do this all the time.

Mood: Mostly sick and tired.  Poor Aaron- he’s been dealing with me really well and I appreciate him and love him more than ever.

Sleep: I’ve been averaging 9 hours a night which is super easy to do when I’m feeling so sick- I’m super sensitive to smells so when Aaron cooks dinner at night I always get a little nauseous.  The only thing I want to do is lay down and sleep- so I do…at 8 pm 😉

Best moment of this week: Coming home from an exhausting day to my cute hubby, clean house and snack foods to make me feel better.

Miss anything: Waking up with energy- oh, and coffee.

Movement: no, it’s too early!

Food cravings: This is weird.  But Cheez-its seem to be the only think I can eat that settles my stomach.  I’ve been trying hard to eat healthy, complete meals but it’s just not working out at all.  So I live on ginger ale and cheez-its- go me!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything and anything.  I’m super sensitive to smells and even the thought of food gets me most days.

Have you started to show yet: nope, that won’t happen for a while.

Gender: I honestly have no clue- I decided that I don’t want to find out the gender until the baby is born but I think Aaron wants to know asap.  We will see who wins this battle 🙂

Labor signs: nope.

Belly button in or out: in.

Wedding rings on or off: on.

Happy or moody most of the time: SO happy!  We told my family and today we are going to tell Aaron’s siblings (we already told his parents).  It’s such an exciting time!

Looking forward to: October 5th aka the safe zone!  I’ll be 12 weeks and can finally rest easy knowing everything is okay with this pregnancy.

Other news/stories:  Last week I had a bit of a scare.  I woke up on Thursday morning feeling completely normal (and not pregnant at all!).  I thought for sure that I was having another miscarriage so I called my doctor first thing on Friday morning and she squeezed me in for an ultrasound.  The appointment couldn’t have gone better.  The baby grew since the last time I was there and we heard the heartbeat!!! Going at a steady 126 🙂  This was the first time I’ve heard a heartbeat and it was truly amazing.  My next appointment is on September 21st and I can’t wait to see the little nugget again.
