9 weeks! According to our last ultrasound we are 9 weeks pregnant today although I’m pretty certain it is more around 10 weeks but I guess we’ll have to see at our next ultrasound! This week our baby is about the size of an olive! Getting bigger every day now!
Mike and I continue to hope for the best for this baby and that by the time we go in for our 12 week ultrasound everything will be spot on and the tilted uterus will have corrected itself…I don’t even want to think about it not correcting because that is just not an option for us. I just believe that on the 24th of July when we go in everythnig will be perfect.
We spilled the beans to our mom’s this weekend because we just thought it was time and they both are very excited! Of course my mom is a worrier like me so I’m pretty sure she’ll worry the entire time I’m pregnant until the baby is born safely and I’m doing ok with my recovery. We still have a few random people to tell individually before we go completely public with the news – like our fathers and Lisa when she comes home from her Greece trip. I’m really nervous right now though and for some reason I feel safer having this news be our news until we have that ultrasound on the 24th of July.
I have to admit that I am feeling rotton right now. A few weeks ago you might recall that I was sick with sinus infection that I thought made its way out of my body without a trip to my lungs. Well, I guess it just settled it’s miserable little self right in those lungs and sprung into active buisness three days ago. I have had a nasty migraine coupled with congestion and a deep cough with phleghm. Ick. I guess it wouldnt’ be so bad if it wasn’t all on top of the bloody morning sickness I’ve had that leaves me feeling pretty depleted most days….so I’m sure you can imagine all of that piled on top of each other with the exhaustion and “poops” that have invaded my life! Ahhh the joys of baking a baby! I really hope that all of this drama means that I have a healthy growing little bean in there! Mike is as always a trooper and hanging in there through all of this illness. I’d really like to go out and see a movie with him some time soon just to spend time with him and let him know how grateful I am to have him in my life! What hurts me the most is not really being able to play with Jacob and its making me feel pretty down. I just have absolutely zero energy and the nausea has me tied down to the bed or couch at most points during the day. Dear baby jesus please provide me some relief in the second trimester! I cant’ imagine being one of those people who go their entire pregnancies feeling like this! I’m still trying not to complain too much about it because like I’ve said before I know its just part of the pregnancy package but a little relief would be appreciated! On Saturday at work I threw up all over the floor while attempting to make it to the bathroom and I’m incredibly disappointed that I didn’t make it; the kids at work were equally if not more disgusted then I was but they were of course genuinely concerned about my “flu” in June. Darn teenagers are so smart these days!
Tomorrow is my birthday and I’m really excited to just relax and enjoy the day now that I don’t have to worry about keeping the pregnancy hidden from my mom. To finish up this post I thought I’d share a funny picture i saw posted on Just Mommies….you’ll appreciate it or at least get a laugh out of it!
