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!

I feel for you with the morning sickness - and I definately know what you mean about the weight gain. After focusing so long on losing weight (even though logically you know it is for a good cause) it is hard to see the scales going up. I have two weeks until my next ultrasound and I'm really excited!!

Good luck with your m/s LBG. I remember it all too well - all day for 10 weeks..blurgh :)
I really started to listen to my body in the end and ate small meals - often breakfast type meals for dinner and remarkably lost about 15 kilos during my pregnancy! I wish the same for you xx
