Orginally written 10/3
We finally told a few people over the weekend and twice now I have had someone tell me I've been "glowing" and I have no idea what that means! Or how to stop it!
If I do this pregnant thing again, I will be more firm in telling people that we're not going public with the info yet. I had someone RUN to me, give me a HUGE hug and SCREAM "you're pregnant?!" at a party in front of a bunch of people. My 9-year old niece was standing right there and we all know how kids can be (God love 'em) so I had to tell her that yes, I am pregnant, but it's kind of a secret right now. She seemed confused.
How far along?: 7 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Maybe a pound or 2 but no real change.
The Bump: I've read in books and the doctor confirmed that since I did this once already my bump will show sooner which depresses me in a way. I also read that I'll probably be in maternity clothes by 4 months (compared to 6+ months with Addy). I know I'm older and that things are stretched out but I can't help but be a little sad that it's all happening so quickly.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Oddly, being able to just tell everyone finally. No more hiding!
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I did buy a cute t-shirt over the weekend.
Symptoms: Sickness is here! I remember it kicked in around 6 weeks with Addy too so that's the same. If I'm not actually stuffing food in my face then I feel sick. Hungry or full, I feel ill. It's awesome...
Belly Button in or out?: In. I don't see this changing.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Got some tortilla soup over the weekend and it was great! I still want comfort things, mostly soups and Sprite.
What I miss: Having energy and not feeling ill.
Milestones: None? I think next week is heartbeat time though we won't hear it for 2 more weeks after that (10 weeks).
