9 Weeks

It’s appointment week! After what feels like a lot of waiting, my appointment is finally only a couple days away! And, to make it even better, Hubby surprised me with the best gift EVER!

He called into work for me (remember, I work for my parents, so that’s less awkward than it sounds) and took tomorrow off for me. Yes!!! A day off! For just me!! To relax!!!

And even better, he scheduled an appointment for me to go see the acupuncturist I saw when I was pregnant with Charlotte AND another appointment for a massage and foot scrub. I’m. In. Heaven. Already.

Being pregnant with a toddler is super tiring. I’m beyond excited (and grateful) for tomorrow.

How far along: 9 weeks

Total weight gain: I might be up a pound? I’m not totally convinced. I have such a finicky scale.

Maternity clothes: My sweet little girlfriend just brought me her bin of maternity clothes… So nice, right?? My new obsession? H&M mama maternity leggings. They’re perfection. Pair them with a cute gap maternity sweater and I’m the happiest (and most comfortable) gal around.

Stretch marks: No, but I did start getting worried yesterday. So much so, that I vowed to pick up my post-bath pregnancy moisturizing routine. I feel like since becoming a mama, I’ve been totally slacking on the moisturizing. That ends today 🙂

Sleep: I’m always tired. I just can’t get enough sleep. Why isn’t nap time a thing? 6 month maternity leaves and 1-hour afternoon naptimes for pregnant mamas. If I ruled the world…

Best moment of this week: Charlotte is officially a walker. She’s so proud, too. She is really shaping up to be such a fun little lady.

Miss anything: My energy!
Movement: sometimes I think I feel something, but I realize it’s super high, meaning it’s probably my food being digested.

Food cravings: I have mega cravings all the time. Thankfully I don’t always act on them. Right now the big one is cake. I’m going to a wedding on Saturday and let me tell you, if there isn’t cake, I’m leaving immediately. Mmmmm! Cake 🙂

Anything making you queasy or sick? I get uneasy when I’m hungry and randomly throughout the day.

Have you started to show yet: of course. You know what else is showing? How exhausting toddlers are to pregnant moms. Exhibit A: 

“Sure honey, you can empty everything out from the pantry and then throw it all over the floor… Just do it quietly so I can make dinner in peace.”

Gender: I’m back to being totally unsure.

Labor signs: Thank goodness, no!

Belly button in or out: Very deeply in.

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: How could I be crabby?? Haha I can be crabby, but this week, I’m happy.

Looking forward to: My pampered day of fun tomorrow and my appointment on Thursday!’
