10 weeks.

Maternity clothes: Ahh, Walmart. Got two pairs of pants for $9 each. And had to buy a new bra again.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Still going to bed about 9:30 every night, cuz when I'm asleep I don't feel like poo.

Best moment this week: One day I felt good. For like, HOURS at a time. It was awesome.

Movement: Yeah my waistline is "moving".

Food cravings/aversions: Cravings change by the minute... but ususally include bread, soup, and fruit. Aversions = anything not currently on the crave list.

Gender: A lot of the old wives tales (and a few of the old bags themselves) have been telling me girl. So now I want a boy to prove the effers wrong.

What I miss: Still miss being able to eat normal meals without fear.

What I am looking forward to: Either my next doctor's appt or the one after that where we will get to hear the heartbeat. Also, end of 1st tri when hopefully all this gagging will stop.

What I have learned: If I thought Nick was awesome before, he's only proven it to me again and again. Run to the store for ginger ale? Sure! Drive out to taco bell/panera/chitty diner instead of eating the groceries we just got? No problem! (Love you bb)

Milestones: Fetus!

9 weeks

Sorry I didn't do a quiz for week 9. I was busy feeling seasick.

Here's the highlight:

Milestone: Baby is offically a fetus! No more embryo up in this bitch!

(Get it?)

8 weeks

How far along?

Maternity clothes: Meh, need some. My fat pants don't even fit anymore.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Going to bed early, waking up a lot.

Best moment this week: Well, I guess the best thing about my week of constant nausea is that I haven't actually thrown up...

Movement: Nope

Food cravings/aversions: Ugggghhhh no food. Food bad.

Gender: *sigh* I don't know.

What I miss: FOOD! I miss being able to eat!!

What I am looking forward to: Um, food!

What I have learned: I'm not going to be able to tell people I was one of the lucky ones who "never got sick", even though I think when people say that it's a load of crap and they either forgot about how crappy they felt or they for some reason want everyone to think they had the most perfect pregnancy ever and can do nothing but feel sorry for me and offer some crappy home remedy shit that doesn't work.

Milestones: I guess the start of morning sickness. First time I called out of work sick due to pregnancy.

Wow, so that post revolved around food. Good grief.

7 weeks

How far along: 7 weeks

Maternity clothes: Got one of those Be Bands from Target. It's like a tube top that you wear around your waist to cover up the fact that your pants are unbuttoned.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: I still love sleep, but I've been having trouble staying asleep. Seems like I wake up at least twice a night, wide awake, and have to lay there and try to get my comfy spot back without waking Nick up.

Best moment this week: I got a picture of you, baby blob! Also... Movement: None that I could feel, but we saw the flutter of a heartbeat!!!

Food cravings/aversions: Still craving pizza/I discovered this morning that I want nothing to do with tuna fish.

Gender: I think I want a girl too, but I've been feeling boy.

What I miss: Can't think of a single thing right now.

What I am looking forward to: going to Chicago this weekend! Yeah, we decided to go even with everything that's going on at work, we still felt like we deserved a little baby-moon. So, Sears Tower, Navy Pier and Lincoln Park Zoo here we come!

What I have learned: When it comes to doctor's appointments, you must be willing to WAIT.

Milestones: First prenatal appt, first ultrasound (which was free - love that doc), first official pounds gained due to pregnancy, not just due to being a hog.

Also, I changed the color scheme from pink to green because we don't know if sweet pea is a boy or a girl, but I do know that sweet peas are green.

My beautiful blob

Here's sweet pea's first photo:

Yeah, I know. We don't know which end is which either. But it's real and it's ours and we love you, blob.

I made it through last week feeling just great, then starting last weekend, BAM! It's not the typical morning sickness... I haven't felt like going for it and just barfing, it's little things. Like, if I don't eat every two hours I start to feel bad. Like when I brush my teeth I get that uh-oh! feeling in my throat. Like, it's 11:00 am and I'm hungry, but NOTHING sounds good.

I tried to be prepared... peanut butter crackers, pretzels, baked chips and grapes are all on hand here at work. Nice, bland food with slight differences in texture just to have my bases covered, and the grapes thrown in just in case I want sweet. But, NO. I want pizza. Ooooh, PIZZA! Thank God I brought Stouffer's flatbread pizzas for lunch otherwise I'd be cranky.

Maybe I'll go make one now.

6 weeks

For ease of operations since I am about to be very busy (and broke) for the rest of my life... I intend to do a weekly post, and some may include a picture of the fatness. No picture today though, because if we wait around for that, it will be another week before I get the dang thing loaded on here.

How far along: 6 weeks

Maternity clothes: Not yet, but my pants are tight. Stupid bloat.

Stretch marks: Nope. I found out they're supposed to be hereditary and my mom didn't have much trouble with this, so hopefully I'll luck out.

Sleep: I love sleep, even more than usual. I went to bed at 9:30 last Saturday night.

Best moment this week: Feeling like I'm kicking that smoking habit's ASS!

Movement: NONE, of course. (answer was left from where I copied it from another pregnant girl's blog)

Food cravings/aversions: Craving pizza

Gender: Nick wants a girl... I... don't know.

What I miss: Beer.

What I am looking forward to: Seeing the heartbeat at our doctor's appt next week!

What I have learned: My digestive system has s l o w e d t o a c r a w l. Because of this, every time I eat I get that ate way too much/almost went to the bad place feeling. I need to start eating slower, and probably should stop BEFORE I start to feel at all full.

Milestones: Due to the bloat, occasional cramping and pizza craving, I FEEL pregnant this week. Yay.
