Back to Back Baby Cookin' Updates! - 9

I'm afraid I've been a bit remiss in updating on the growing little one. The nausea, exhaustion, and travel all took their toll and it's been all I could do to get through work every day. I'm starting to get back in the swing of things and so, here's the much delayed nine week update. Keep posted for week ten tomorrow.

Nine Weeks                                           
Size of Baby - A grape

Cravings - Still pretty much the same. Potatoes, cheese, pasta, fruit. Last time fruit was my number one craving and I can already see that craving starting to grow. The other day I found some decent pears and nectarines at Trader Joe's and thought I had died and gone to heaven! They're all gone now, must make my way back. Oh! A new craving is peanut butter. I'm usually not at all a peanut butter lover, but recently it just tastes amazing. Two mornings ago I actually had FOUR slices of toast slathered with peanut butter. Crazy.

What is different this time around - Same ol' same ol'. More nausea, bigger belly.

Symptoms - Still with the nausea. I now also have a constant nasty taste in my mouth. Not fun. And definitly not a good mix with feeling queasy. Sadly, gum only makes it worse. I've also been experiencing a fair bit of soreness in my lower belly. I'm assuming it's simply from it growing and shifting. I'm crossing my fingers that it's not from that muscle I pulled in aerobics when I was just 4 weeks along.

Appointments - Our next appointment is tomorrow! I'll be exactly 10 weeks by that point. They're going to try for the heartbeat and I'm hoping that they also decide to do the early ultrasound.

  1. Gum was bad for me too. My nausea meds were mint flavored and that killed mint for me for a long time, even postpartum. So fruit gum took the place instead.
