Due Date: December 15, 2016
How far along: 9 weeks
Babies are the size of: grapes! About an each long each!
Maternity clothes: Not sure if I am bloated or a belly is starting to push out the belly I already have- That being said, I think I will go pick out a few pieces for work this weekend. Maybe some capris and leggings maybe even some short sleeve shirts that won’t be so form fitting.
Stretch marks: No new ones
Symptoms: Tired! There have been a few nights this week that it was tough to drive home because I was so exhausted. I promptly lay down on the couch and take a nap until bed. My stomach has been unsettled a few times, but if I graze throughout the day I seem to be fine. The gas is sticking with me and my hips are starting to hurt along with my breasts.
Sleep: I’m still up every 2 hours or so to pee. I am loving the pregnancy pillow I got because I am a stomach sleeper. It is helping me to stay on my side, even though I would prefer my right side to my left…sigh.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On but watching them closely. I want to make sure I take them off before they get stuck on there.
Movement: Not yet, just the occasional cramps.
Food cravings: ice cream with cherry pie filling, carrots with dip and a chicken sandwich with guacamole and cheese…it’s been an interesting week of cravings.
Anything make you sick or queasy: The smell of cut grass really bothered me at work the other day. It smelled like fish to me after they mowed right outside our classroom window…my kids thought I was nuts.
Miss anything: Sushi, iced coffee and meat cooked medium instead of well done.
Labor signs: Hopefully not for another 7 months
Mood: I’m more impatient at work, especially at the end of the day. I also yelled at Hubby last weekend for mentioning weight. Other than those few occurrences, I am happy most of the time! I will admit to having a few Holy Crap how will we handle 2 babies moments, but they pass quickly!
Boy or girl: I am starting to think one of each but no real instincts on the matter.
Best moment of the week: Getting my first Mother’s Day cards and gifts last weekend! Hubby got me a tripod for my camera to take tons of baby pictures and my mom got me a card and necklace.
Looking forward to: Going baby browsing this weekend, which will include a bit of maternity shopping for me! Oh and our 10 week ultrasound next Friday with our regular Doctor! I can’t wait to see my little C babies again!!
Purchases for babies: Nothing yet, but that may change this weekend.
Purchases for mom: Nothing yet
On a side note, we got the okay to stop the estrogen patches after our 8 week visit. I asked the nurse if she was sure. Duh, of course she wouldn’t tell me if it wasn’t okay! But still, I was hesitant to stop any medication that was helping my little ones. She said that it was okay to drop down to one and wean myself off…so a week later and I am still on one. Anyone else have this anxiety when they told you to stop a medication? I know it is probably fine, since my levels were high enough to show that my body was taking over but still. I can’t stop! I am sure I will have the same fear on June 3rd when I am due to stop the PIO shots! Who knew I would rather keep torturing myself with hormones and needles!
