9 Weeks and Bumpdate

How far along:
9 Weeks

How big is baby:
the size of a green olive

Maternity Clothes:
No, but only because I haven't purchased any maternity dress pants yet!
Weight gain alert!  
I now weigh 125lbs after gaining 2lbs somewhere along the way this week.

Still shouldn't feel any movement for some time.

Food Cravings:
Chocolate Pie, Dr. Pepper, and water

Food Aversions:
Anything fried and greasy
It's hard to find anything I want to eat!

9 weeks until we find out!

Tender breasts, acid reflux, indigestion, aversion to foods, intense sense of smell, cramps, extreme fatigue, headaches, bloating, nausea, constipation, mood swings, bleeding gums, weepiness, drooling, sore hiney from 50 (and counting) progesterone-in-oil injections

What do I miss:
Being pregnant is amazing, but I miss NOT having acid reflux.

Best Moment of the week:
Working on my Pregnancy Scrapbook, telling Joy our girl name, and watching my bump get bigger

What am I looking forward to:
Entering the second trimester--it won't be too much longer now.

We've almost made it to double digits (weeks) in this pregnancy!

Since Brandon is traveling, these were taken Thursday evening at 8w4d.  I look and felt terrible on Thursday!  But, I do have a little bump now.

I look super tired in these pictures, and that pretty much sums up how I feel most of the time now!


  1. I love green olives! So fun that your baby is already that size! Congrats on the 9 weeks mark!!!

  2. You look great in these photos. I don't see your fatigue, but I do see your giant smile. Congrats :)

  3. LOL, as I read the first part of your post, I thought "I love green olives. I could eat some right about now." Actually, no I couldn't (I have food aversions to everything now) but normally, I love green olives.

    What a cute baby bump! I can't wait to have that myself.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.
