I had my first OB appointment at the beginning of this week. Everything is looking great! I also got sick this week too though. It was a nasty little stomach bug that's taken me a few days to bounce back from. I'm feeling really drained because of it.
Photo thoughts: I think I need to get Patrick to back up and get a better side angle. These just aren't turning out that great. However, yay for makeup! I really don't have any other thoughts on this.
Pregnancy symptoms: I'm tired. That's really about it. Also, I feel really chubby some days. It's just that my stomach muscles stick out all the time now. It's weird. I don't really feel like my boobs are growing like they did with Owen, but I've noticed weird sensations every now and then. It's like I'm experiencing a let down. It freaked me out the first time it happened because I thought milk was going to start pouring out. Thankfully, it didn't.
Food aversions/cravings: I'm still having a hard time with meat. I've forced it down a few times but I can feel queasy just thinking about it sometimes. I'm ready to start eating my normal healthy diet again. I've definitely given in to my cravings a lot more this time. I'm sure the weight gain is going to be a different story this time around. I'm okay with it though.
Boy or Girl: I'm thinking it might be a girl. However, I still have a hard time picturing it. I can picture having two little boys. I think Owen would have fun with a little brother.
Size of baby:
|Ultrasound at 9 weeks, 2 days|
Looking forward to: Patrick and I have plans to get to work on the house this coming weekend since he's got some time off for labor day. I'm ready to get things moving a little earlier this time around. I procrastinated badly when I was pregnant with Owen and I don't want to do that again.
