Pregnancy - 9 weeks!

How far along: 9 weeks

Due Date: Feb. 1, 2014

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not really keeping track although I'm thinking I've gained very little, if any.

Maternity clothes: Broke them out 2-3 weeks ago.

Stretch marks: I have a few from my second pregnancy. We'll see if this pregnancy adds a few more.

Sleep: Great!

Symptoms: Nausea, although a prescription is helping a lot. Extremely tired, moody, hungry ALL the time. Headaches (not sure if this is pregnancy related or just regular migraines.) A bit of round ligament pain ALREADY. I didn't remember this until much later with my first 2 pregnancies.

Food cravings: I crave random things all the time! And half the time I can't eat it once I get it ha! I also crave LOTS of gluten things (like bread, biscuits, rolls, etc) that I can't eat. :(

Food aversions: Lots!

Labor signs: Nada, thank goodness.

Belly button - in or out? In 

What I miss: Having energy, not being nauseated, migraine prescriptions when I need them..

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what we're having! Feeling a little better. 

Movement: I haven't felt anything yet but we know he or she is moving already. 

Milestones: The baby has now graduated from embryo to fetus. :) 

How big is baby: About the size of a grape

Gender: Don't know yet but we're thinking girl!

Names: Believe me, we're I'm talking about names 24/7 but we haven't settled on anything for sure, besides a boy middle name. I've had a favorite boy first name picked out for a year or two but hubby isn't sure he likes it. We do have 2 girl names that we both like and as of yesterday I'm really leaning towards one of them, which happens to be hubby's favorite of the two. I've had a few ideas on girl middle names but we haven't decided for sure.

Best moment last week: We had our 9 week appointment yesterday. This was actually my 4th sonogram and this time the baby looked much bigger and we could even see him or her moving their tiny arms! So cute to think of a tiny grape sized baby kicking and moving around already. :)


  1. Oh my goodness!! This is so exciting, and I'm thrilled for you!! I'm taking a little blog break, but I got the update via FB. {So glad I did!}


  2. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! So happy for you all! xo xo xo Becky

  3. Congratulations!! Picking out names is so hard. Are you going to find out what your having or leave it a surprise?

  4. I'm so glad the baby is doing well! I'm also glad the prescription is helping. One of the side effects of it is headaches, so that may be why you're getting them so often!
