Thank you all so much for your sweet congrats! We are soo thrilled to be adding to the family and Cooper is so excited about being a big brother!
I know I owe you all some details. The first and most exciting thing (I think) is the due date. Ready?
No kidding. Not planned and probably won’t be born that day because I will more than likely be induced, but still so fun!
I don’t know if I’ll post this every week or not, but thought it would be a good way to start.
How Far Along: 9 weeks
Size of baby: 1″, about the size of a grape or green olive.
Total Weight Gain: Lost 5lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Wearing mostly my normal clothes, but already got out maternity pants and the bella band since they’re way comfier. I am shocked at how much faster I’m showing!
Movement: Nothing yet.
Sleep: Tons. Like I’ve never felt this tired in my entire life. Being pregnant with a 2 year old is no joke. Hubs is being so great letting me sleep in and Cooper likes to snuggle up and watch a show with me in the afternoons.
What I miss: Feeling “normal”, having energy to run errands and cooking.
Cravings: Lemonheads and Zofran
Symptoms: Nausea. Vomiting. More vomiting.
What I’m looking forward to: Eating and not seeing the food afterwards.
I’m adding aversions: Wine, coffee, chocolate. Isn’t that nuts? 3 of my favorite things before being pregnant now make me gag at just the smell of them.
I had a very small bit of queasiness when I was pregnant with Cooper, but this is a whole other level of crazy. I am living on saltines and lemonade! The Zofran has helped the vomiting, but not really the nausea. Feel free to give me your anti-nausea tricks, especially if they are something other than my current go-to…sleeping. Hehe. I wake up thinking about nap time!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
