Written September 1st
Weeks along: 8
What's new with baby: Now the size of a wild strawberry, or 1/2 of a Lego brick, take your pick. Little miss or mister is moving its arms/legs, and the taste buds are forming.
Maternity Clothes: Nope
Symptoms: Still tired 24/7, and some days nausea kicks in like whoa, but other days it's manageable. The girls definitely still hurt though, which continues to be fun.
Cravings: ALL the Mexican food, and carbs are my BFFs.
Workouts: Another lackluster week with being exhausted. I got in a couple of walking workouts (2.5/3 miles apiece) but that was about it. I'm hoping once the first tri fog lifts I'll be able to get back to my regular 3-4x a week workouts.
Baby Purchases: Got our first pack of diapers! Target had a promo where if you bought 2 packages you got a $10 gift card. We had to pick up a pack for our neighbor's newest addition anyways, so I figured we might as well pick up one for us :-)
High point of the week: Our first prenatal appointment was Friday! It almost didn't happen because my OB had to go to the hospital to deliver a baby, but 2 hours after my original appointment they were able to squeeze me in. We haven't gotten back any of the blood work yet, but my Dr. said everything so far looks very normal and healthy. We have our first ultrasound tomorrow, so I'm anxious/excited to see the babe. I feel like it'll make it feel real. We also told my two childhood BFFs this weekend since my friend Sarah was in town. Their reactions were great, and they're very happy for us.
Concerns/Issues: I love our families, and I'm so happy they know right now, but a part of me is really paranoid/concerned that someone will find out through the grapevine. I just don't want someone at work hearing that I'm expecting without it coming from me....
Sleep: Still great, although I wish I could do it all the time.
Looking forward to: Our first ultrasound tomorrow! Fingers are crossed for a healthy and active bebe.
