Weeks 7-8-9

I was going to be a good blogger and blog this each week... and then life and nausea happened.  I will be better from here on. I promised the baby :)  A blog I found through pinterest gives categories to write about each week so I stole this idea from her!

 Baby O is the size of a blueberry.  This was also right after dinner.  I wasn't showing yet but you could see my dinner belly ;)

 Baby O is the size of a kidney bean.

Baby O is the size of a grape.

How far along? Depending on the pics- I was 7, 8, and 9 weeks.
Total weight gain? Down 3 pounds
Maternity clothes? No- but I did buy my first belly bands last week at Target cause some of my jeans I wear to work on casual Friday's were hurting by the end of the day.  I've only worn it once though.  We've discovered that I wear all my clothing pretty tight.  Sooo I'm guessing this will come sooner rather than later.
Stretch marks? None yet- I've already bought the lotion and have started rubbing it on morning and night just in case!
Sleep? I crash early and wake up early- complete opposite of my normal schedule.
Best moment this week? Our first OB appointment with my doctor-we love her! She's so excited for us too and will make this experience so special.
Miss anything? Pretty much just feeling like myself.  I'm not liking this whole nausea every night from 5-10.  Poor Trent has a wife with a permanent spot on the couch. After teaching all day I basically lay on the couch the second I get home and don't move.
Movement? Nope
Food cravings? Drinking Sunny D like it's my job, which is weird since I probably haven't drank that since college?  I finished my first gallon in 24 hours, no lie.  I tried a new kind- Orange Colada- and fell in love with Sunny D even more. It would be delicious with vodka but since that's no longer a possibility someone needs to try it and report back to me in 9 months :)
Anything making you queasy/sick? Chicken, blah! Trent calls it the "C word" since it makes me instantly want to throw up.
Gender? Won't know for another 2ish months.
Labor Signs? Nope
Symptoms? Feel great in the mornings, hungry all day at work, then like crap by the time I get home.  My morning sickness hits me about 4:30 or 5 and sticks around until I fall asleep.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? HAPPY!!! So excited for this life change!
Looking forward to? FINALLY telling Trent's family this coming Labor Day weekend.  It's been so hard to not say anything for a month, especially since my parents and brother know, plus Jobeth and Kyle.  I HAD to tell my BFF right away!
Daddy moment? Trent wants to get started on the nursery already. I love his daily text messages hunting for a dresser off Craigslist.  He's so excited to get started but I feel like crap so we'll probably wait until I feel better!

  1. Delightful blog! You're such a sweetie and I really loved reading your responses and seeing the photos!
    My hubby and I are into photography as a hobby, and have been trying to find a "funky" spot for the background to weekly photos.
    I will be 7 weeks on Friday :)

    Here's our website and our love story movie that my hubby made.
    I smiled when I read about your man getting excited for the dresser of Craigslist! We're so blessed to have men who are ecstatic along with us, and gentle in how they care for us when we're exhausted/nauseated etc. :)

    God bless you during your life as Mommy! I'll have to check out your other posts. This one was from September so I'm guessing you've already delivered?! Or soon? June-ish?

    Happy Mother's Day too!
