9-10 weeks

Mar 06, 2010 - 0 comments


Had my first OB appointment and was able to hear the heartbeat!! That is one of the most exciting moments when I first learn that I'm pregnant is to be able to hear that its actually there and alive. He thought it was too soon to tell because I'm supposedly 8.5 wks but as it turns out I'm really between 9-10. I have an upcoming ultrasound that will tell exactly about how far long I am. My least favorite thing is the physical (ie pap smear) its the most uncomfortable thing especially when the doctor is a male and has the hand size of Andre the Giant!!

Prenatal Visit

Come to find out today I've gained a total of 13 lbs since being pregnant and 6 since last month!! They say it could be because I'm naturally thin (norm. 115lbs @ 5'4'') but with my last two pregnancies I could barely gain that much weight throughout the entire pregnancy. I like the weight gain I love having a lil bit more meat on me but I just hope that this rapid gain doesn't stay consistent and in-turn becomes a problem.

235 days to go!!

I had to work at my DNA job and it was exhausting. Standing on my feet just isn't what it use to be. Now at the end of the day my feet and ankles are swollen and sore. All I can keep thinking is this is only the beginning. I don't remember having this many symptoms this early in neither one of my other pregnancies. Thinking back they were a breeze compared to the trouble I'm already having soo soon with this one. I think its a girl because of all the trouble its giving me. My others are boys and the only trouble they cause is now at 7 & 3 yrs old.

Feelin good

I've had a burst of energy for the past two days and it feels good! I thought the fatigue would last longer throughout my first trimester but I'm soo glad it didn't. I was able to clean I haven't been able to do since being pregnant and had an extended shopping trip today that was really nice. Most of all it just felt good to get out of the house for hours and not feel like I was in dyer need of a noon nap.
