It's been a tough week so far. I am still nauseous in the morning, which makes eating hard. But if I don't eat, it gets much worse. And I've had a hard time packing enough food to snack on throughout the day. Thankfully, they are really cool with food being at your desk, so I have't had an issue stuffing my face all day long. The company is great, and everyone is SUPER nice (plus I am actually meeting people, which has not happened since moving here), so hopefully things will start to click soon and I will decide to stay. Now I just need to buy more pants that fit my fat ass!
Now for an update:
How far along: 9 weeks
Size of baby: Grape
Physical symptoms: Nausea has subsided for the most part...now I only experience it first thing in the morning. I'm still hungry ALL THE TIME, which wouldn't be so bad, except I started a new job and it is harder to make sure I pack enough snacks for the whole day.
Weight gain/loss: Haven't weighed myself in a couple days, but I think I'm up around 3 lbs now. It's hard to remember what I weighed before all this started though since IVF through everything outta wack.
Maternity clothes: Yes. I was able to wear my maternity work pants this week for the first time. They are super comfy, but still a little big in random areas. However, still much better than when I wear my regular pants and have to wear a long shirt to hide the fact that I can't button them.
Stretch marks: Still just on my boobies.
Sleep: Sleep is getting a little better, mainly because I am so exhausted after work that I barely make it to 8 before starting to fall asleep.
Best moment since last week: Nothing has really happened...
Movement: Way too early.
Cravings/Aversions: Still no major cravings. Still not a fan of chicken.
Gender: Too early to tell.
Labor signs: Way too early!
Belly button: Innie
What I miss: Being able to go more than an hour between meals!
What I am looking forward to: Our first OB appointment 2 weeks from today!
