How far along? 9 Weeks
How big is baby? The size of a grape (or green olive but I don’t really like those so I will use grape)
Maternity clothes? N/A
Sleep: Tired all the time but finding it hard to actually sleep.
Best moment this week: beach vacation – relaxing in SC with Jimmy, two friends and their baby
Food cravings: pasta
Food Aversions: eggs – had a real bad morning after a homemade cheese omelette
Gender: Jimmy thinks boy
Labor Signs: N/A
Pregnancy Symptoms: Some rough days of vomiting. I did get to experience hormonal crying for the first time. I actually cried because I was hungry and the group couldn’t order pizza quick enough. Like full on sobbing in the hallway.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: morning mimosas on the balcony – our beach tradition. I did make a delicious mock-mosa (diet 7-UP, pineapple juice, and OJ) which tasted every bit as wonderful but there’s something about opening up a bottle of bubbly to kick off a vacation I will always miss when not drinking. Again, totally worth it, but still a miss this week.
What I am looking forward to: laying low this weekend and getting some things cleaned out in our house. Hoping to declutter the two guest rooms we’ll need to rearrange to accommodate our computer/office set up and a nursery.
Upcoming appointments/events: Genetic counseling phone call 7/18
Milestones: Bump’s first vacation. Also this is the first week I can mentally picture a baby in there. Before I imagined it but I couldn’t really picture it.
