I’m going to copy my friend, Jo Luehmann, who has been tracking her pregnancy (now in week 36, I believe). I got the go ahead and here we are! I’m in my tenth week of pregnancy which means I’m technically over nine weeks pregnant (similar to someone who just celebrated a birthday – they just turned ’30’ but they are entering their 31st year of life).
Weight 0 Pounds
Waist 0 Inches
Even though I think I’ve already gained about 2 pounds, I’m going to enter my starting weight at ‘0’ because we all know I weigh WAY more than that, and I don’t want to frighten you too much with the actual number 😉 Similar to my waist – although, I am still fitting in all of my jeans without a problem whatsoever, I do feel that you can see a little pooch already which is a little disheartening. I feel like one should get pregnant and immediately enter into the ‘cute’ pregnancy phase – past the phase where you just feel fat and before the phase where you feel gigantic. Anyways, not the case.
This week was good – we got to see the first ultrasound. Baby was moving all over the place and the head is large, as to be expected. I was relieved to hear that, at this point, the head should take up 1/2 of the body. Phew. Although, I’m certain we’ll still have a child with a large head if genetics have anything to do with this 😉
My only complaint is that nothing EVER sounds good to eat. EVER. I know I need to eat, so I do. But, ugh! This is a problem and slightly frustrating for one who LOVES to eat. Ice cream is usually always a ‘go’. And I have had a few lunches or dinners that constituted just of ice cream. Don’t judge me. I always thought I’d be a healthy pregnant lady. Not the case. I haven’t been sick – praise the Lord – but I feel a little nauseated most of the time. Also frustrating for someone who rarely feels under the weather.
I haven’t been too tired – although it is summer, so naps are bound to happen. I love that the first trimester is while I’m off of work! Just fabulous! Josiah and Kalyb have been a really big help and we were all thrilled to see Baby D on the monitor. In a few weeks, we’ll actually hear the heartbeat when we go back to the doctor.
I typically have a hard time viewing these and determining what is what – but, I think all that goes without saying. Clearly a little gummy bear baby forming in there! SO SURREAL!!
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
