So...I'm pretty positive I can feel baby moving around in there! Its the craziest, coolest, most awesome feeling ever! Most of the time its a short flutter but I'm pretty sure there have been a few hard kicks. Well, not hard as in they hurt but there was a definite movement. SOOOOO cool! I'm loving it!
I think I'm finally liking being pregnant. I was given pills to help with my morning sickness. :D YAY!!! I can't believe I'm still throwing up and getting nauseous. How lame is that. Sorta. I guess that means baby is healthy?
I was weighed at my first doctors appointment. I was WAY underweight. SO strange. I weighed the same as when I was like 13 years old. And for a brief amount of time when I was 19 and a starving college student on my own for the first time and walked every where I went. Anyways, I was weighed again at a different office, apparently I gained 8lbs in about a 2 1/2 weeks time. HAHAHAHA! If its true, I'm not ashamed. I cannot stay away from those cupboards, refrigerator, and pantry's. I am hungry like every two hours. I don't mind gaining weight. I just hope I don't gain more than is needed to be healthy. My favorite foods are...
PEANUT BUTTER, HONEY, AND BANANA SANDWICHES
CEREAL (LUCKY CHARMS, LIFE, MINI SHREDDED WHEAT)
Anyways. other than my weight I'm in tip top condition. I have a perfect blood pressure and my iron levels are "beautiful" (according to the dietitian). I just need to gain a pound a week until the end of my pregnancy.
My baby bump is growing lots! I officially cannot wear several of my pants, not even with my tummy band thing. hehe. i have one skirt that still fits (sort of comfortably) that i wear every Sunday. I've been wearing Mick's shirts and pj pants a lot. haha. he doesn't mind. i guess...
Mick and I go in for our FIRST ULTRASOUND on Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!! Wow I cannot wait! I cannot wait to be able to finally call baby a "girl" or "boy" instead of "it". hehe. And I just want to see my beautiful baby. And I really can't wait until Mick see his baby.
Mick has been loving baby a lot lately. Now that it sticks out a lot and he can see the changes in my body, he is always rubbing my tummy and saying things to baby that are just so silly and so cute! I'm glad he gets so excited for baby. I love it when he just comes up to me and give my tummy kisses. :) i think this is my favorite part about this pregnancy. I can't wait until he can feel his baby move inside of me. And the greatest will be when he hold baby for the first time. wow.
well, this has been my baby update. stay tuned in. more baby new to come this Wednesday! who votes its a girl. And who votes it a boy?
