Week 11

You are the size of a small fig, and the first signs of teeth are starting to appear below your gums.

This was a really busy week and again, thank goodness for your Daddy or I could have never gotten through everything!  I hosted a shower for your Aunt Kara (and Michael) at my house and Audrey got tubes amongst all of the other craziness.  I'm still pretty sick.  I found that spearmint gum (which normally makes me sick) actually helps.  I'm also having problems with my blood sugar being low.  I think it has to do with morning sickness.  Hopefully this will go away soon because it is definitely not making me feel any better.  Sorry to be a downer this week...I'm just ready to feel good again!  I'm still VERY EXTREMELY happy to be pregnant with you!!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Kinda down, but grateful
Energy: Notta
Sickness: Still Nausea
Cravings: Hamburgers

Week 10

You are the size of a grape, and your head is becoming more rounded.

Despite being so happy to be pregnant, the nausea and exhaustion are really getting to me this week.  I know that it will go away soon once I enter my second trimester, but I'm just so ready to feel "normal" again.  Also, so tired of having to eat so much!  We did go on a mini-vacation to Lobo Landing in Heber Springs on the Little Red River with your Mimi and had a lot of fun. It was cold, so Momma and Audrey spent a lot of time in the cabin, but we had a lot of fun eating s'mores by the fire and relaxing.

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Really tired of being sick and tired
Energy: None
Sickness: Still nauseated
Cravings: I'll just say "s'mores" for this week since I ate my fair share at the cabin.  :)

Week 9

You are the size of a cherry, and by this week your embryonic tail has disappeared.

Everything is going great!  I had another doctor's appointment and ultrasound this week at 8 weeks 5 days.  You were perfect and your heartbeat was 179 which was great!  You wiggled around on the monitor and it was so wonderful to see you so active.  Momma is still doing okay.  Super tired, super hungry and my belly is starting to pooch out!  It is way bigger this early in the pregnancy than with your sister.

Stats for the Week:
Mood:  Does "tired" count as a mood?!
Energy: None
Sickness: Still nauseated
Cravings: Chinese food.  Loved the sweet and sour chicken this week!

Week 8

You are now the size of a kidney bean and even though I can't feel you, you may begin to move this week.

We celebrated the new year with sparkling grape juice and you were definitely part of our toast because we are so grateful to be able to start the new year with you!  Momma is super sick with nausea right now and super tired.  Fortunately, your Daddy is so wonderful and has been cooking dinner and holding down the fort for Momma until the nausea is over.  We took down the tree knowing that we would be taking pictures in front of it with you next year along with your big sis Audrey!

Stats for the Week:
Mood:  Happy  and emotional
Energy: Zilch
Sickness: Same ole nausea
Cravings: Icee's (love them)
