Do you guys feel like this pregnancy is flying by as fast as I do? Doing these updates each week has made things really seem like they're going by fast! Hope you're all enjoying them as much as I am.
How far along? 9w3d
Total weight gain? Again, no idea. I go for my first OB appointment on 8/11 and I imagine they'll take my weight at that time & I'll be able to start tracking that.
Maternity Clothes? None yet
Stretch Marks? None. I did get an amazing package of oils from my cousin Michelle, and one of them is specifically for stretch marks so I'm looking forward to trying that! She also gave me a nausea spray & a rollerball of Happy Mama which is used when a mental lift is needed! I'm throwing that in my purse and using it like every day! Seriously if you're looking into oils, check out her Facebook, she is a wealth of knowledge about them and is probably the sweetest girl I know.
Sleep? Sleep has been better, I get up to pee about 4 times a night right now. I changed my work schedule from 7:00-3:30 to 6:30-3:00 which I like so much better. I worked that schedule for about 7 years then switched it to the later time last year when we moved. I hate that extra half hour at the end of the day! The 30 minutes in the morning goes by much faster than it does in the afternoon. I get home even earlier and I love being able to take a quick nap every day.
Best Moment this Week? It's been a pretty uneventful week so far. I got the top I'm planning to wear to the gender reveal (free, just had to pay shipping!) which I'm excited about. Our party is scheduled for 9/3!
Have you told your friends? Yes of course!
Miss Anything? Caffeine, alcohol, hot dogs! - Same as last week!
Movement? Nothing yet.
Food Cravings? Cinnamon toast, candy of any kind, chips, hot dogs, cheese, really anything, lol.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing! I've been so blessed to not have any sickness or queasiness at all!
Have you started to show? Not really, mostly just a food belly still.
Gender prediction? I still think boy! Gender reveal is set for Labor Day Weekend!!
Labor Signs? No
Belly button in or Out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? Still pretty moody most days.
Looking forward to? Our 3D ultrasound is this Friday! I'm so excited for that but also bummed as it's our last appointment with our RE. Next week we have our first official appointment with our midwife which is local. I will not miss the 1.5 hour drive to Peoria every week for ultrasounds, but I will miss the staff at my RE's office so much. They are seriously so amazing and supportive and they think the world of Joe and I and what we did to accomplish this pregnancy and I really just appreicate everything that they have done for us and all the support they have given us.
