Saw this on another Blogger's site and decided to steal it.

How far along? 9.5 Weeks

How is Mommy Feeling? 
- Not too bad overall.  Have had some bad bouts of nausea, headaches and fatigue, but overall not as bad as some other pregnant women in my life. 
- A little nervous to get to the next U/S and make sure baby is still doing well.  Damn these 4 week waiting periods between appts

How is Daddy Feeling? 
- Very excited, but worried we may never chose a name...especially if it's a boy!  We picked out a girl's name almost 2 years ago, and another one a few months back, but we haven't found a single boy's name we both like, and I'm also worrying we never will.

Total weight gain? 
- about 6 lbs from the start of the IVF cycle (4 lbs from the BFP)

- Boobies have been a little sore.
- Headaches...I've been having awful, nausea inducing headaches, especially by dinnertime.
- Tummy is almost constantly hungry, and luckily the food aversions seems to be getting much better.
- Cramping...especially since week 8.  Supposedly it is the uterus stretching

The Belly? 
- A bump only I can see, but hubby says he can feel it.  My abdomen, over where the uterus is, has become very hard and I've officially switched to maternity pants.  

- Still getting very tired, and often napping, though I'm making it through more days without a nap than before.
- Nights are full of 4-5 trips to the bathroom, which isn't fun but I figure it is practice for later nighttime feedings. 

What I miss? 
- Exercise...I have tried going back to the gym, but I get tired and overheated easily and I start cramping which makes me nervous and then I have to stop.  The same thing happens with the prenatal yoga video I bought. 


  1. glad that blogger is back in action for us all. i can't tell you how great it is to read your weekly report, and to once again know that we are all on this journey together.

    The cramps are seriously enough to freak a girl out! I know that they are normal, but I sure don't want to be doing anything to bring them on. My Bestie who is mostly thru her second pregnancy never mentioned cramps, just a little "prick" feeling. It sounds good that you are listening to your body and not overdoing it, yet still attempting to stay in good shape.

    I think that these weekly reports will be fun to look back on someday :)

  2. oh...I can't wait to have these symptoms! ahahah
    come on over cramps and whatever! Your symptoms are exactly the same as my friend as she was at 9 or 10 weeks.
    that stinks about the headaches though. Your body is working overtime! No names yet? That sounds so exciting. that is great your hubby is excited too. Makes this moment so much more enjoyable!

  3. youknow, I just realized that I stole that format from another bloggers site, can't remember where, but never offered credit or thanked her. I hope that maybe via this comment I can put a big thank you back out into the bloggosphere to the original creater of this beautiful weekly recap!
