9 weeks

Again, yes, I realize that I totally skipped over 8 weeks. I believe I might have slept through week 8 as well as week 6. I can barely keep my eyes open once I get home from work. We finally had our first OB appointment after a long and anxious wait. I was so excited that she did an ultrasound to help ease my mind and see that yes, I really am pregnant, and yes, things really are fine!

Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our little jelly bean's heart flashing away!
Baby is measuring right on track and growing like he/she should. Because of my age, I have to go to Little Rock for a Level 2 ultrasound just to make sure that all is well. I'm actually very excited about this because we'll get to see our little one in detail!

Entertaining Question/Comment of the Week: My Dad's response to our news was, "I wonder if it will have 2 legs or 4. Everything other living thing at your house has 4."

Obsession: Chocolate milk, chocolate ice cream, & chocolate milkshakes. YUM!

What I Am Most Looking Forward to This Week: Every week I just look forward to making it to the next week. I am estatic to be at 9 weeks!!! But in the back of my mind I always know that anything can happen at any time.

What I Miss The Most: Sleep. Definitely. I wonder if I will ever sleep a whole night through again. It's difficult to find a comfortable position and I can only sleep for a couple of hours at a time before I have to pee!

Symptoms: I am so tired! Every day. Even when I first wake up. I have to take a little nap when I get home from work in order to make it til 9pm. My house is a wreck because I don't have energy to do anything! And this bloated up belly! Wow. I look like I'm least 4 or 5 months along. I'll be glad to reach the 2nd trimester so maybe this bloat will ease up some!


  1. YAY! There's your little bean! I am SO happy for you - the waiting has paid off :) I am so thrilled for you and wish you a happy, healthy pregnancy. Can't wait to hear what's next and follow your journey!

  2. I have lost three babies in the last four years, so that is what makes this baby so special. I am 15 weeks and 2 days, and scared to death. I can't say i like the stage i am in due to not feeling the baby move or anything, so you often wonder "is there anything in there". I am set up to have my level 2 done in the next few weeks and hope that all gos well as i am up there in age myself. Sleep! what is that? My mother whom had us at an early age, just does not understand why i am so sleepy all the time and a bit cranky. I told her i am 42 and was on the slop to being tired already, so it is being compounded by the baby as well. I have another strange thing going on, i have to rest after a shower, it wears me out!
