A Great Holiday Week

I cannot complain.  The end of December went well!  Two weeks ago my morning sickness got so bad that I vomited for the first time this pregnancy (I was 8 weeks).  BUT  I am grateful because I was NOT sick on CHRISTMAS - the Christmas Brunch we hosted went well.  My mom helped me prepare the food.  I was NOT sick on my Anniversary or on my birthday - the party I hosted that night went very well! 

Today I am 10 weeks along.  If you squint your eyes and turn your head to the left and twist your foot while you look at my belly - you maybe could tell that I am showing just a little.  Although I may just look pudgy to some lol. 

Next apt is January 11th and I can't wait!

Excited for all this New Year will bring!  Happy New Year Everyone!

Needing to smile...

In the past two days I have had at least five or six people ask me what was wrong and if I was unhappy about the pregnancy.  I guess I have been a little nonchalant and distant.  I am elated about being pregnant!  I just don't feel good.  I am sooooooooooooooo tired and I have no motivation to do additional housework or extra stuff once I get home...and half the time I am sick.  It's hard to smile all the time when I am sick, tired, and overwhelmed at all that has to be done in so little time.  I can barely eat half the time. 

Today I am 8 weeks along.  I have experienced intermittent prolong nausea (no vomiting yet, but almost), constant thirst (can only tolerate water and sometimes milk).  Today was a long Saturday...I worked in the clinic from 8-12 (saw abou 20 walk ins), then got my lil Diva and went to teach praise dance for 2 hours (young group from 2-3 older group 3-4) then went to my mom's for a bit and now, back at home and ready to settle in.

I figure once I get out of the first trimester and the nausea and fatigue subsides, and once the Holidays are over, I'll smile more often and be more at ease.  This week alone I have to get the house in order, wrap gifts, pick up a few last minute gifts, host Christmas Brunch for the fam, and a Holiday Party on the 27th. 

Second trimester seems to be the best one - Just 4 more weeks...

And so it begins...

This week I have started feeling a little more nausea in the mornings (no vomiting yet *knocks on wood*).  Soda no longer tastes good (which is fine considering I need to limit my caffiene anyway) and most of the snacks I bought to fight off hunger, I have no desire to eat (sliced apples dipped in caramel - not appealing).  Did have an insationable craving for pizza though.  Got one from subway which was pretty good but did give my slight heartburn.

My first apt is a nurse visit only scheduled 12/13.  I really want an u/s to see if all is okay and since I know my OB doc personally, I'm thinking of asking if we can do that in her spare time (since I'm not scheduled to see her until January).

I wonder if it may be twins.  HA!
