Hello, Kiwi!

I know that I shouldn't be surprised by your growth, Peep. This is my third time having life grow inside me, but it still just amazes me. This week you are the size of a kiwi. That is a lot of growth for one week. Is this why my nausea has been horrendous? Especially today! My hormones must be going wild! Well, even though I can not wait to be in my 2nd trimester, you are worth it, Peep.


ps. I'm hoping not to be up at 3:30am again tonight to go to the bathroom. I'm not particularly fond of this new trend.

Growing- Slowly, but Surely.

Or maybe not so slowly! Am I really only 9 weeks? Oh am I scared now- are there 2 in there? And what if they are both girls. Can you imagine a house with 4 girls? My husband will faint! He's hoping for one boy.

We'll see.

A blessing is a blessing!

My Little Grape!

Peep! You are the size of a grape this week. Some may think that is small, but I think that is just amazing! Just a week ago, you were about half this size!

I know you're wiggling around in there now and I'm not supposed to feel it. But I swear I can feel you, Peep!


ps. If there is anything you can do in there about the nausea, I'd appreciate your help, little buddy!

9 Week Symptoms- Oh My!

Help! I Don't Fit in My Clothes!

My clothes have become quite uncomfortable! Luckily today I found a couple of great finds at a local thrift store. I can't believe that I actually fit into maternity clothes. They are a little big, but much more comfortable than my regular clothing. Today, I found a pair of my husband's shorts that I was able to fit into-barely. So hard to believe that I am growing out of clothes so fast and only 2 months pregnant. Okay, Peep. I'm glad that you are growing, but slow down on pushing my belly out so quickly.

Wow, Peep!

Wow, Peep! You continue to work hard in there. It is just amazing! I can't believe that you are beginning to form a digestive tract, lungs, nostrils, hands and feet, and a bump of a mouth. A cute little bump of a mouth. Great going, Peep!


The Boob Fairy

Who is the boob fairy, you ask? Well, the boob fairy only is good to those who are pregnant. I guess whether you appreciate the boob fairy would depend on your size. For those of us who are not well endowed, we appreciate her handy work. My sister actually is the one who told me about this magical being. Now my girls think it is hysterical and look at me and say, "Yeah Mom, the boob fairy did really come." Whoever came up with the word boob, anyways?

Just a thought!

Way to Early for This!

I know that this is going to sound crazy, but last night while I was trying to fall asleep, I felt a movement inside of me- not once, but twice that felt like little kicks. It is way to early for this! Even if I was further along, the first feelings that I remember are more like a flutter than a kick. So, I don't know what is going on in there and then again maybe it was just gas! It will be great to get a sonogram and figure out just how far along I am and how many little ones are in there.

I can not believe that I can't fit into my pants already! This is why I've been wondering if I'm further along or if my body is just saying, "Hey, I've done this a couple of times, getting ready for baby-now! or twins??

Here I am at 6 weeks (maybe??)--

Yes, I know it doesn't look like much, but look at how I can't button my pants. I've already started the rubber band trick in order to stay in my pants just a bit longer.

Actually, I posted this photo as well to have a starting point, before I start really showing.

All for now!

Proud of Peep, already!

Wow! Little Peep- you are just the size of a seseme seed or is it a raisin? It depends on the website, but all I know is that for being so small you sure are doing a lot of work in there. It's hard to believe that the beginnings of your brain, cardiovascular, nervous and reproductive systems are already underway. And Peep, your little heart is actually starting to beat! Keep working hard, Peep!


Calamari- Ugh!

Working at a seafood restaurant has it's benefits, for instance seafood is more expensive than other foods, so my check averages are higher which in turn means my tips are (usually) higher. Well, one of the disadvantages of working at a seafood restaurant when you are pregnant is the seafood itself. Recently, my enemy has been calamari. Smelling it is the worst and just looking at it turns my stomach in every which way. I can't escape it though. Guests order it. My co-workers love it. So there is no escaping it. Luckily, I only have to see you oh evil calamari on the weekends. Okay, I'm done being dramatic. Maybe peep just isn't into seafood!

Nausea: Friend or Foe?

The first three months of pregnancy can be rough due to the nausea, so why do I wish such upon myself on the days that I am feeling great? I know that this sounds crazy, but the first three months are scary, too. Scary because this is the time when most miscarriages occur. It is because the nausea reassures me that I am still pregnant. At least in my mind. I remember how relieved I felt once I got past the three month mark. Then I wished the nausea away. Funny as I'm typing this, I'm starting to feel nauseous. See what I did! I was feeling great yesterday, no nausea and then again this morning. Here comes my friend!
