1/4 of the way through!

Hey all!

Sorry I've been AWOL over the past 2 weeks. Busy at work, not so busy at home but just not wanting to get on the computer when I am home from work.
Not much has happened... I'm still pregnant, now at 9 weeks 6 days today. The Nausea settled down this week and because of that my band is a little less restrictive and I can eat more food. I'm just not all that hungry and when I think about food I feel sick. I'm hungry and nauseous at the same time, I didn't think it was possible!

Haven't been exercising over the past 2 weeks. Really haven't been feeling like it, so tired. Will get into it once I hit the second trimester in 2 weeks, cos thats when I'm meant to be feeling more energetic.

I have an obgyn appointment this thurdsay and I'm hoping I'll be able to hear the baby's heartbeat. and then in the next couple of weeks we'll get to go for an ultrasound and actually see a properly formed human on the screen! SO EXCITED! :)

I haven't put on much weight and the weight I have put on is more fluid than fat. My boobs have gone up a whole cup size and I'm in a D cup maternity bra now! *eek* The Mat bras are Sooooooooooooooooo much more comfortable than regular bras.. so glad I bought them.
my belly has expanded, although I still look like I've eaten a few too many doughnuts than I'm actually pregnant. None of my regular pants now fit and I seem to be wearing the same 2 pairs of pants for work each week! Looking forward until I am actually showing and look pregnant, rather than just fat... especially when I can't suck my guts in any more!!!

Hope everyone is well in blogland! Will post after my appt this week to let you know how I get on.

7 weeks 2 days!

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are all doing well in Blogland. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Nothing much has been going on other than me putting on weight.... so weird that I'm putting on weight, for the past 2 years I've been losing weight... but I think, it's for a good cause - but it still mucks with me mentally.

My nausea has been pretty constant now, sometimes I even wake up with it. Whoever called it Morning Sickness had no idea what they were talking about. Had my first pregnancy spew yesterday. Today I tried crackers and vegemite for lunch which totally worked. I think I'm just going to have to have light snacks throughout the day rather than trying to manage bigger meals. I start feeling better mid afternoon and need something to eat, but until then I struggle to get water down :(
Band is also pretty tight at the moment, not sure if that is Nausea related. But I think it's because I'm not "working it" by eating regularly.

I had my ultrasound last thursday to date the pregnancy. Was SO COOL to see little Ruperts tiny heart beating. So So cool! Looks like I was slightly out with my dates by around 2 days, so I'm two days closer to meeting my precious bundle!!

Next ultrasound won't be for a while (another 5 weeks or so), at the moment Rupert is just busy growing. he's already 1.3cm!!

Thanks for reading!
