9 Weeks

Blame it on the hormones. Or the fact that I got sucker-punched on the cheek by a 5-year old. The kid punched me inches from my face and the only way I could react was by crying. Uncontrollably. Almost sobbing. But that seems to happen more. Jamie eats my cake without checking to see if the whole piece was for him? Tears. And yes this is the piece of cake I referred to so exuberantly in the last post. Jamie drinks my one bottle of Coke even though he has plenty of Coke Zero and Diet Mountain Dew in the fridge? Get the Kleenex ready. And they say that it only gets worse.

In baby news...According to the weekly emails, my baby looks less like an elongated worm and more like a human! Yay! My uterus is now the size of a medium-sized grapefruit, which would explain why the majority of my pants do not fit. And I certainly contribute to that on a daily basis. In fact, even though I ate a good dinner my stomach is growling. Probably because I am thinking about cake, Coke, and the package of Oreos I bought at Wal-Mart. It's amazing at how quickly things change. Seven weeks ago I would have certainly walked past the Oreos and convinced myself that I certainly do not need to eat those yummy creme filled cookie wonders. Now? Who cares about serving size! Bring them on! In fact...BRING THEM ON!!!

8 Weeks

Eight weeks! The time seems to be crawling by - probably because I am so excited for April 17 (my new ultrasound appointment) and April 24 (LAS VEGAS!).

Speaking of Vegas...I have already planned what I'll wear. The most crucial outfit is the one I will wear the day I arrive in Vegas because I need to hide the fact that I am pregnant until the big reveal. So I have an outfit planned...and a backup in case what I plan on wearing doesn't fit 4 weeks from now...and an idea of an outfit I can wear in case my back-up doesn't work (which involves purchasing new clothes).

My pants are already tight. If my pants have two clasps I only use the bottom one. I bought a band that goes around my pants so I can leave it totally undone...how awesome (and comfortable) is that!!

New developments this week...morning sickness for about 3 days. But not too bad and it seems to have stopped. My new favorite snack? Cake! In fact, I have a piece on the counter and I think I will end this and have a piece! Yum!

Actually...7 Weeks

I went to the hospital today for my first appointment. Turns out I am not 6 weeks - I am actually 7 weeks and 5 days to be exact. My appointment was a lot of talk about lots of stuff. But I love the nurse I will be working with. My first ultrasound appointment is April 14!!!! That I am so excited for.

After my appointment I went to the PX and just walked around the baby stuff. I got kind of overwhelmed. Pampers or Huggies? Scented wipes or unscented? Do I need a wipe warmer? And I have to admit...looking at breast pumps kind of intimidated me. Don't know why but they did. And looking at all the cute little baby stuff just made me excited. Twenty weeks is when I can find out what I am having. So I can go back to the PX and get the cute little onesies in pink or the cute onesies with boy stuff. I am super excited!!!

Six Weeks

So my baby is about the size of a lentil bean. Yet I'm eating like the baby is the size of a bowling ball. Just so you know...I am an equal opportunist when it comes to food. Anything and everything looks good. Except sausage - gross. My favorite snack? Ranch corn nuts.

For those of you who do not know...my dad and grandparents do not know that I am pregnant. Next month my sister is getting married in Vegas and we are going to surprise them. But that is in April and it seems like such a long time. I can't wait to tell my dad and my papa! It is still crazy to think that I am pregnant...crazily enough I have not been sick this entire time.

My first appointment is this Thursday, but it isn't anything exciting. Just filling out paperwork. I'm going to see if I can convince them to schedule an ultrasound before I leave for Vegas.

Here is my first photo of my belly. Just a small bump!
