11 Weeks

(one day late!)

How far along: 11 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain: 2lbs so total so far
Sleep: If I wake up in the night for any reason I find it really hard to get back to sleep :(
Best moment of this week: How far along: 10 weeks (a little late, actually 10w5d oops)
Total weight gain: 2lbs
Sleep: Lots of!
Best moment of this week: I've been looking for a new job and have had several interviews this week. (Though I'm getting very nervous about what happens if I get an offer and how to handle telling them I'm pregnant...)
Miss anything: Not this week!
Food cravings: GOAT CHEESE!!!!!!!!!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Smelly things :(
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty damn happy most of the time! Small bouts of grumpy along the way but nothing super crazy like last time!
Looking forward to: REALLY eager to find out the genetic test results! In my gut I feel like everything is ok but I would feel so much more at ease with the evidence to go along with that. It's been 1 week today since I had the blood draw, and they said it would take 5-10 business days, so I really hope by next Friday at the latest we will know. Fingers crossed!!!

10 weeks

How far along: 10 weeks (a little late, actually 10w5d oops)
Total weight gain: 2lbs
Sleep: Lots of!
Best moment of this week: Well this was last week, on Friday, we had another ultrasound and I was very happy to see a squirmy little baby in there! Measuring ahead 4 days, so 10w5d with a HR of 153, totally normal!
Miss anything: There was at least one time over the weekend I really could have used a drink!
Food cravings: Watermelon, ice water, same old!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not as much, I am getting better, this is also about the same time it started to ease up with my last pregnancy
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy to have, once again, made it past our other miscarriage milestones!
Looking forward to: I scheduled my NT scan which is in 3 weeks! Also I took the Panorama test on Friday so I will hopefully hear back within the next 2 weeks (they said 5-10 business days!)

(Baby #6 at 10w1d)

9 Weeks/9 Months Update

Current Pregnancy Update:

How far along: 9 weeks
Total weight gain:
I'm not sure, I haven't weighed myself because I feel like a fat ass
Sleep: I have been sleeping SO much I actually feel guilty about it. I fell asleep the other night at 8pm, and got 10 hours of sleep. In my defense I was fighting a cold so I probably needed it. But About an hour after I wake up I'm ready for bed again.
Best moment of this week: I found my fetal doppler. I was not able to find the heartbeat, but I know it is still early. I'll keep trying!
Miss anything:
I've been missing feeling just normal for a consistent period of time. Honestly my morning sickness is not as bad as I had it with Greyson (I'm thinking the meds help) BUT I still feel weird or like crap fairly consistently. Daydreaming of the 2nd tri when I start to feel more normal.
Food cravings: Watermelon, ice water, Lingonberry juice (I was at Ikea last weekend!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Honestly not as much, I just feel yucky for no reason mostly. Overeating is a huge trigger for feeling like crap though. Need to watch that.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! Baby is a Fetus as of today, week 9 is always scary for me. I'm really..
Looking forward to:
my third u/s next week, 07/24, I should measure 10w1d (and if baby is growing how it has been I'll probably measure closer to 10w5d) I really hope he/she is still growing in there!

9 Month update on Greyson

I cannot believe my baby cakes is already 9 months old! This last month has been SO CRAZY! A million things happened all at once! I don't know where to start!

Teeth - 2 of them! Both within the last month. The first one caused him to be a whinny complainy mess for a week or so. Second one we barely noticed came in (both on the bottom)

Movement - Wow. He had been rolling over for quite a while but he suddenly became extremely fluid in it, like rolling over multiple times to get to somewhere he wanted to go.

Then crawling! That happened so fast, I feel like one day he was finally able to rest on all fours. Then the next day he was rocking back and forth, the next he was moving small movements either forward or backward, then the next (I'm calling it 07/07) he started full on crawling!

Standing!!! FOUR days after I walked in to get him when he woke up from a nap and BAM:

 So now, less than a week later he is consistently pulling himself up on furniture, my legs, anything he can. So much fun. I can't wait to see where we are in a month!

8 weeks

I completely missed my 8 week post! I have no idea how that happened. It might be a good way to show how much less obsessed I am with this pregnancy. After actually having a child it really does feel different to be going through this again. Not every waking moment is spent dwelling on the outcome of this pregnancy. It almost sounds bad to say that. I guess it is what it is.

8 Weeks

How far along: 8 weeks
Total weight gain: 1 lb
Sleep: Sleep is sweet sweet relief from nausea
Miss anything: not having weird food aversions
Food cravings: Watermelon
Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat, too much food, not enough food.
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy!

(skipped a few questions because that was a week ago and doesn't make sense to add!)

Ultrasound #2

On Monday I went to have my follow up ultrasound. Everything was great!

The baby had a strong HB of 160 and was measuring a few days ahead at 8w1d (I was 7w4d on Monday). Here is an updated picture of the little dude. I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow!

7 Weeks

How far along: 7 weeks
Total weight gain: 1 lb
Sleep: Sleep is sweet sweet relief from nausea
Best moment of this week: Spending Sunday being lazy watching movies
Miss anything: feeling NOT sick
Food cravings: Watermelon, ice water, Popsicles, anything cold.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything, all day
Happy or moody most of the time: Still worried but hopeful
Looking forward to: my second u/s next week, 07/06, I should measure 7w5d

Other notes:

I've been feeling a little guilty because I'm feeling like crap constantly. I don't feel "present" all the time when I'm with baby Grey. That makes me sad. I don't want to miss out on my time with him because of symptoms. Last pregnancy it started to ease at 11 weeks, if that is the case this time I only have 4ish weeks to go!
