9/10 Weeks

How far along.... 9 weeks, 6 days. With our camping trip last weekend and then the holiday this weekend, I haven't had a chance to blog so these two weeks are combined.

How am I feeling.... Nauseous - all day, every day. Food is awful. I am craving nothing. The things I end up eating are usually soup, cereal, smoothies, bagel breakfast sandwiches and carne asada. I usually just force the food in and I do okay. Some day I am right on the edge of throwing up. The ginger candies I bought do help. Oh, and diet Coke. I don't normally drink soda, but it really helps. The heartburn and indigestion started way earlier this time, so that's fun. My belly has grown a bit already, but I also have a lot of extra weight from the four IUI's and IVF. My emotions are all over the place still, but today's 10 week ultrasound absolutely made my week, so I am on cloud nine right now :)

How is baby doing.... Everything continues to look great. She measured about a day ahead today and she was moving all over the place and waving her tiny arms!!!! We heard her heartbeat again - such a beautiful sound. I am so in love already!

Milestones, etc.... My Mom and I went shopping the weekend before last and got some clothes for baby girl. I get all giddy when I look at them and realize we will have a little girl in our arms next year. So crazy!! Two more weeks and I'm done with the estrogen and PIO, yay!!!!


  1. Congratulations! She's so cute! I know it sounds odd, but chocolate milk helped my nausea so much this last time. I was an addict for 9 months.

  2. Awesome update! Hope the nausea calms down soon for you!
