The waiting is the hardest part.
Tom Petty was definitely onto something there. I finally have my first appt this afternoon, and needless to say - I am a nervous wreck. I know the odds are that everything is fine. But I read about these women who go and have an u/s and there is no heartbeat or there's just nothing there. I don't know what I will do if faced with that situation.
Luckily I am "working" from home today, so I have plenty of distractions to get me through to 3:00. Currently I am doing some laundry, downloading some music, and trying on my bridesmaid dress for the wedding I am in in less than 3 weeks. Thankfully it still fits! Now I just need to make sure I don't blow up in the next couple weeks. I am pretty bummed about what I see as weight gain over the past week. Not sure what's up with that, but I'm hoping it was just crappy eating over the last couple days and not that I am going to gain 50 lbs with this pregnancy.
On that note, here is my weekly check in:
How far along? 8w2d - baby is the size of a raspberry.
Weight gain/loss: 3. Ugh! I think it's partially due to the bathroom issues I was having. Plus my crappy eating over the weekend. Back to the gym for me!
Symptoms: I have bouts of queasiness every once in a while. And I went 6 days with no BM, so I guess that is a symptom. Other than that I feel ok.
Sleep? Sleeping pretty well so far. I haven't been overly tired, which is good.
Best moment this week? Having my first u/s today!
Movement: No – that won’t happen for a while!
Food cravings/aversions: I had to stop my morning smoothie since it was making me want to hurl. I am loving the carbs right now and have a weakness for gummy bears.
Belly button in or out? In, but still feeling kind of weird and hard on top.
What I miss? A normal bathroom schedule! And getting to hang out with friends.
What I am looking forward to? My first appt this afternoon. Can't wait to see the raspberry and see a heartbeat!
Milestones: I hit 8 weeks!
What I'm nervous about: This afternoon's appt. I just want to know that everything is ok in there.
