9 weeks and counting

Today I'm 9 weeks pregnant and baby Conner is now the size of an olive. This is ironic because I HATE olives and Mike has been waiting for the day that I start to crave these greenish orbs. Hasn't happened yet and doubtfully will.

Yesterday and today I've had a break from the nausea that plagued me last week. I've been able to eat just about anything, and as long as I eat frequently then I'm ok.

One thing that's been a challenge is the restrictions I'm under regarding exercise. The perinatologist put me on pretty strict orders to do nothing strenuous, including most forms of exercise. I look forward to warm days when I can at least take afternoon walks.

Still no cramping or any other physical indication that things ain't right. Once again we praise God for one more day, one more week, one more milestone.

so glad you're feeling better, enjoy your rest because once the baby get here you'll miss it for sure.

Yeah, 9 weeks! I am feeling your pain with the restrictions. It appears I will be laying down until this baby comes because of cervix issues. Emeline keeps trying to feed me with her plastic tea set and food:). At 37 weeks (beginning of full term), which is mid-April I will be going on a very long jog. I am now at 31 weeks.

Praying for you and baby as you wait these next few critical weeks!

What a rollercoaster!

The only funny "craving" I had was I couldn't stand the taste of plain water - so I had lots of sparkling water instead, and usually, I can't stand that. So I knew that was one of those weird pregnancy things :)
