9 weeks

I promise I won't turn this blog into everything baby, but I realized that if I don't document this pregnancy on my blog, I won't write anything down about it. And many years from now, when Peanut's dating/getting married, I won't have anything embarrassing to say about when his/her mom was pregnant! So, I am posting an update on my pregnancy. Sorry--this is a boring post with no pictures.

I am 9 weeks today.

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, my symptoms have pretty much been the same. I'm tired. I have no energy. I am sick as a dog in the mornings. I am never hungry, but always feel better after I eat. I crave anything with caffeine, so I have to limit myself to one cup of a caffeinated beverage per day.

My daily routine looks something like this: I get up. Gag a million times. Go to work. Come straight home. Lay on the couch and watch "Friends," "Seinfeld," and "American Pickers," (in that order). Eat something that Mat cooks or heats up for me. Sleep on the couch for 2-3 hours. Wake up. Go to bed. Wake up in the middle of the night a thousand times. Get up for work, and do it all over again. Exciting life, huh?

I had my first real doctor's appointment last Monday. Mat got to meet my doctor, Dr. Link, and I was so relieved when Mat told me he really liked him. Dr. Link was recommended to me by a friend who had a baby girl last year, so I knew we were in good hands. Still, it was nice to hear Mat say he really liked him.

We didn't learn anything new at the doctor's appointment. I did not have another sonogram, but I will have one when I go back to the doctor on May 25. I will be 13 weeks then.

We've gotten a few little gifts for Peanut over the past few days. Mat's parents bought us lots of little onesies, a few outfits, and some cloth diapers. Mom sent a package full of books and a Peter Rabbit blanket. One of the books Mom sent is a recordable storybook, and she recorded her voice reading the book. She made me promise to hold the book up to my belly and let Peanut hear her voice every night so that he/she will know her when he/she arrives. So cute, right? Finally, our friends Adam and Maggie sent us a Peter Rabbit book. Peanut is already spoiled rotten.

Other than all of this, life is pretty much been the same. Mat's parents and Lenze got to come to Shepherdsville this past weekend, and we so enjoyed having them come stay with us. We had a wonderful weekend with them.

Happy Tuesday!

  3. New from FaithBlogs. The first few months of my pregnancy sound very very similar to what you are going threw. :) It will get better though and I agree in the end once your holding your little baby in your arms it will all be a blur.... Congrats!
