Nine weeks today!

And nine! Hoping all is well with Elvis of course, and I'm trying to stay positive.

I feel well most of the time, I do have a bit of nausea mostly in the afternoon and evening and my stomach swells after I eat something. Boobs are definitely very big and quite sore, I am also very hungry and I've put on a bit of weight. I do think I have a bit of a bump too but maybe it's my imagination.

Unfortunately another sad news in the blog World hit me on friday. My friend Adele saw no heartbeat at her scan and they think it may be chromosomal again. Please stop by to give her support. It is also so frightening to see how temporary pregnancies can be...

On a different note, the weather in Ireland at the moment is something else! Sunshine and very warm, even the cats can't stay in sun for too long now! This week is going to be an important one, I have my scan on Thursday (please please please... Elvis be bigger and healthy) and my third student is defending her PhD thesis on Friday. All going well, next weekend we'll have plenty to celebrate!

  2. So very excited for you! I'm right behind you at 8w2d now. Great to hear that you don't have the nausea too badly. I've got wishful-thinking symptoms. :-) Every now and then I get a faint feeling of nausea, but then it passes and I eat everything in sight! Trying to take off the 3 pounds I seem to have gained last week alone!

  10. Of course I will braid the dog hair for you for Thursday! Although, I don't think you need it. ;)

    I have to say, I was in early maternity pants by the time I was 10 weeks, so yes, I think you are starting to bump out a bit. I can't remember, but it seems like your uterus is probably around the size of a small grapefruit right now, which means it is starting to protrude! Do something fun and go buy some maternity pants!

    The weather here in Texas is HOT...we are supposed to reach 100 degrees today. Ugh! I think I'll spend the day in the pool.
