9 Weeks

How Far Along: 9 weeks as of 11/16
Coming soon I'll start tracking pics of my belly. Still nothing to see yet, other than the extra fat that's appeared around my tummy! Next time my sis tries to rub my belly i'm gonna scream lol. She's really just rubbing my fat! *love you sis*

Size of the Baby: baby is the size of a Green Olive!
Maternity Clothes: Nothing yet, but I did tell Bob I may need to wear the belly band for Thanksgiving! My pants are starting to get a lil snug and this way I'll be more comfortable when I'm stuffing myself!

Stretch marks: none so far, but I did buy some Tummy Butter and started applying!

Weight gain: Not sure really..My scale at home needs a new battery so we'll find out at next week's appt.
 Although I swear the dr's office scales are always +5-8 lbs more than what I really weigh! And they never take off a few lbs considering your clothes you're wearing!

Sleep: Sleep is ok. I'm up every couple hours to pee, and then usually wake up early and can't go back to sleep.

Best Moment of the Week: Going to Babies R Us for the first time with my mom. Can you say overwhelming?! But it was fun, and I'm pretty sure I already know what Diaper bag I want! Isn't it so cute! Love! And the interior is pink! It'll work for either boy or girl. And I saw ones for Bob.. I defintely think he's more of the backpack diaper bags rather than a satchel or the diaper dude.

Movement: None but I read the baby is moving around in there already I just can't feel it yet!

Food Cravings: Nothing I don't think.. The thought of something might make me excited but it's not like I HAVE TO HAVE IT NOW OR ELSE! I really wanted Chocolate milk a couple weeks ago, and then this past weekend I finally got to have Hibachi which I've been wanting..

Gender: Not yet, I can't wait to find out though!! Then I will really start looking at baby stuff and planning the nursery! I'm hoping we get a great ultra sound early where they're able to see something!

Belly Button in or out: In

Anything making you queasy or sick: Only when I'm really hungry. Oh and the smell of this Caramel flavored coffee made me feel really sick the other morning on our car ride in. Once after dropping Bob off at work, I made him dump it and put the cup in the trunk so there wasn't even a chance I'd smell it anymore. I also found out I have Strep B? Don't really know too much about it, other than it's common in prego women.. so I'm on antibiotics for it.. And still taking Progesterone pills until week 12.

What I miss:
 I miss Bloody Mary's and wine. So baadd actually. That's horrible huh!? Whenever someone posts a pic of a bloody mary, I get so jealous. My parents informed me I can have a virgin, maybe I'll have to try this.. But I really don't think it'll be the same.. I also miss sandwhichs! I've been really wanting a yummy Togo's sandwhich but everything I've read says I should stay away from deli meat..I'll need to ask my dr. next week. Also missing the energy.. Just going out on walk or shopping wears me out! Sunday after shopping all day with mom, I almost tore into some dried fruit at Target just to give me a lil more energy..

What I am looking forward to: Thanksgiving- getting to spend time with my family. Friday- We're going to take our first Christmas pictures! (this is also how we'll share with everyone the news!!) I'm thinking of holding the ultrasound pic over my belly, and then it'll say something like "Happy Holiday's from our growing family!" What do you guys think? Any other ideas? I'm open!!

Nursery: Nothing yet probably until we know the sex. Although we now know which room it'll be. Goodbye to my super walk-in closet! :/ And I do love now the "Secret Pinterest Boards" because family friends that don't know yet, will probably think something's up when all I'm pinning is baby stuff. Can't wait for a few more weeks to broadcast it to the world! :)

Emotions: I'd say definitely emotional. Sunday was my Grandma's 5 year anniversary/birthday, so we like to celebrate her birthday, but just reading some comments and really thinking about her made me bawl. I also knew I was super hormonal because I had to bite my lip to prevent me from embarrassing myself during Twilight yesterday.

I remember wanting to pin nursery stuff, gender reveal photo ideas, etc and not being able to because people didn't know. I was thrilled when Pinterest made their lil announcement! And yes...wine was something I missed immediately, too. Think the nurses will care if I pop open a bottle at the hospital? ;)
