I am really excited to present to the blog world my first Bambino update :)
*note to you all it might not look like it that much but I am already starting to get a little baby pooch. These were taken right after I got up close and personal with the toilet but I knew if I waited to take them later I would forget :)
How far along? 9 Weeks :)
Baby's size? Little Bambino is now the size of a green olive
Weight Gain? I have no idea. I haven’t weighed myself in a while (on purpose). I had to gain some weight to get pregnant and I knew looking at the number would freak me out so I didn’t weigh myself. At the first OB appointment I didn’t look but I think I might suck it up and weigh myself just to keep track. I’m a little nervous about gaining too much weight. We shall see if I get up enough nerve :)
Maternity clothes? I actually did buy a pair of maternity jeans that allow me to wear flats (all my non-maternity jeans are really long). I love them! I have decided that since I like my jeans on the loose side I would rather not feel them get tighter on me..I guess I like being oblivious.
Stretch marks? None yet but I really do need to start putting on lotion or they are going to sneak up on me.
Belly button in or out? In
Sleep? Very nice. I am getting really nauseous at night but as soon as I hit the pillow I'm out. I usually have to get up to go pee about 2-3 times so not bad. Sometimes if I get up then the nausea hits and it takes me a while to get back to sleep.
Foods I am loving? Fruit..I am totally craving fruit! Also, for a person that doesn’t like meat that much I sure have been craving it a lot. Which is good because I know the little bambino needs protein. I have also been loving yogurt. I have to carry around my trusty saltine crackers although more out of necessity than taste. Oh and pizza :)
Foods I am hating? Sweets. I had a huge sweet tooth before getting pregnant and now even the thought of sugar makes my stomach lurch. I guess that’s good because then I don’t eat it.
Best moment this week? Well this was actually a few weeks ago but getting to see the little bambino and hear the heartbeat!
Movement? None yet.
Symptoms? Oh the nausea :( I am lucky that I am not sick all day but at least the last week I throw up once in the morning and just feel sick the rest of the day. I am also very tired.
Gender? Can’t wait to find out!!
What I miss? Waking up in the morning and not throwing up. I used to be such a morning person but now I dread it. I wouldn’t give it up for anything! Overall I am so grateful to be pregnant!
What I'm looking forward to? Making it to the 2nd trimester and our next OB appointment on April 14th.
Milestone: Hearing the heartbeat :)
Emotions: Well I have to say that my emotions tend to be all over the place but pure joy and excitement are the main ones. I am trying not to worry too much and I have decided that although it is good to be aware of what can go wrong, I can’t read a lot about it because then I get all freaked out.
