10 Weeks

It seems like my stomach is already growing. Its weird how pregnancy effects your personality, emotions, and your physcial appearance. Its really quite a lot to take in all at once. I know have 30 more weeks to go. We told M's parents today they are really happy, this will be the first grandchild on his side of the family. I am starting to get over the morning sickness which is fine by me! I am really rather tired of running to the toilet all day (the person that first called it morning sickness should be shot its all-day sickness people). My next doctor appointment is October 11th. I have been on a KFC kick, not exactly a craving because I could live without it if I had to.

M said my face is starting to change. When asked what he meant he said its getting skinner. Skinner I ask? Yeah. Then he made the deadly mistake, I think its getting skinner because the baby is sucking any and all fat from your body to make your belly. Oh boy he is in trouble now!

Chapter Closing

**This is a back dated post from my written journal**

Today is the closing on my life as just a married woman. I found out I am pregnant today. Wow, I am pregnant.... I keep re-reading that line. I didn't think it would happen this fast but it was meant to be. I am now going to be starting a new chapter of Married & Pregnant. Its crazy how fast these chapters have been starting and closing so quickly. But its meant to be and God won't give me anything I can't handle.

This morning I wake up to loud sirens and drums playing. I rush out of bed and put my shoes on because I had just realized I forgot that the parade was today. Fortunately I was able to pour myself some caffeine and relax on the porch to watch the parade (our street is on the parade route) we were out there for two hours so that should tell you the parade was pretty big! This was my favorite picture, I just have a fascination with wagons, I know I am weird.

9 Week Pregnancy
I didn't realize I was that big already until I am sitting here looking at this picture. Lets start head to toe with what is different with me now.

Head: Well my hair is now more greasy then it used to be and I am no longer "shedding hair" its getting thicker and I am not sure if I truly like thick hair even though I have always wished for thicker hair! My face has become more oily which I hate, I have always had the no pimple skin (I know some people hate me right now for saying that)
Chest: Well this is a no-brainer and I am not sure if I should even mention it, but yes my boobs are getting bigger and I used to wish I had bigger boobs but now I just want my little boobies backkkkkkkk!
Stomach: Well its getting bigger, can't ya tell?
Hips: Umm... yeah I think this is where most of the weight has went, I have turned into Mrs. Thunderthighs
Feet & Toes: Nothing unusual has happened to them and I hope to keep it that way!

9 weeks

First Doctor Appt 9 Weeks 1 Day

This morning I went to the doctor, M joined me. They first took me into the room to do a sonogram, I will post those as soon as M gets back home because he has to hook up the printer... Anyways, as soon as they get to where the baby is the baby is just moving around like no other, its really pretty amusing. Its like our little baby is a dancing machine haha! M gave the baby the name, little gummy bear hahah! Today the baby measure 24 mm which M says is about an inch long (I am horrible at math so I have no choice but to believe him). That is just totally amazing to me that you can see something that small.

Then we talked to the dr. her name will now be Dr. Iamtooskinny, she is really nice! She asked me if I had any questions which I didn't since I have been reading up the wazoo! She warned me about toxioplasmosis yes I know not to change the litter box, who said I did that even before I got pregnant? (Another not, after years of being a vet tech according to Dr. Google I am immune to it but I am not going to take the chance)

Anyways I will post the pictures sometime tonight for everyone to see! M is getting more excited now that he "can see there really is something in there" I thought that was really cute. Oh yeah and the babies heartrate is 172 which they said is really good, so yeah anyways, more later! I will post sonogram pictures for you.

Also one more thing my due date has been changed to April 18th right now... Okay yeah I think I am done for now haha!

8 Weeks & Counting

**This post is post is back-dated, I didn't actually tell anyone I was pregnant until 10 weeks and I am doing this because I want to get all my feelings down from my paper journal that the online world doesn't see**
I wanted to post this picture before I forgot so I can look back and see how big I have gotten over the months. I am still trying to convince myself that yes I am pregnant and no this isn't some fantastic dream. I read that in these 8 weeks the baby already has eyelids, arm buds, and leg buds. Its amazing how fast they grow! My first OB/GYN appointment is tomorrow, I am pretty excited about it. I just really want to hear his/her heartbeat so I know that yes there really is something inside me growing!
M and I have started to discuss baby names I know its early but hey, we are going to be first time parents and we have a lot of quiet time with each other so of course things come up! We can't decide on a girl name whatsoever so watch we will probably have a little girl and she will have no name because M can make fun of every single name that I like. Yes, he is very creative and it irks me because I really like these names but he doesn't want him/her to be made fun up at school. He just keeps saying well kids are mean and if an adult can think of ways to make fun of a name just think what a kid can do. Okay, so maybe he does have a point.
M and I have also begun discussing what sex we think the baby is. I really really think its a boy, now that I have put that down the baby will probably be a girl so I can make a fool out of myself by saying I know my body... Well we will see eventually how "in tune" my body is to these things haha. M thinks the baby is a girl. When asked why he says he doesn't know he just thinks its a girl. Men I will never understand their reasonings... But for today I will go with it.
I know I am only 8 weeks pregnant but two of things MIGHT be going on (a) I am going crazy or (b) I am already gaining weight and my belly is already starting to show a little bit
**Update** I found out its (B) that yes I am starting to gain some weight and get a belly. I have gained 2 lbs. 3 oz. to be exact.**
