10 weeks 5 days

I had an OB appointment this morning. I always get nervous before going to the doctors. It went well though. The dr was super nice and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. It was 170 and "strong" according to the dr.

Here is a few "bump" pictures. I was surprised to see the difference from the first pic to today. I took the first pic when we first found out we were pregnant. I was 5 weeks or so.

9 weeks

I am 9 weeks today! Every week feels like a milestone. I can not wait to be 13 weeks and in my 2nd trimester. That will be a real milestone. I don' t have another Dr.'s appt until May 29th. I hope they let me hear the heart beat at that one. I will be almost 11 weeks at that time.

Otherwise, my pregnancy is moving along. I have nausea everyday if I start to get hungry, so basically I am always eating. I never realized that this could be why some women gain so much weight. Also, I did buy some maturnity clothes this week. I went to Motherhood in the mall, and got a really comfy pair of cargo pant that can also roll up to capris.

Food is a weird thing these days. Basically nothing seems to taste good. My "craving" has been for taziki sauce. You know, that yogurt, cucumber, garlic sauce. It is so good. I actually went to the diner by myself the other day and got a chicken souvlaki just for that sauce. Yesterday I went to the store and bought a package of it and toasted pita bread to dip in it. LOVE IT!

Friday we went to see Henry Rollins do his spoken word. It was amazing. Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY is so beautiful. I hope to see some other acts there in the future.

Now I am 7 weeks again

On Friday I had a follow up appointment with the dr to go over my sonogram and blood work and have an exam. Everything went well. They did tell me that based on the measurements of the baby that I was not as far along as first though. I changed the ticker on the right to the correct date, but left the one below as the original for now.

My new due date is 12/20/09. It is very exciting. It is the same date as my sister's birthday.

As a side note, since I have become pregnant, here are some things I have learned about when a friend/coworker/family member/stranger, tells you that they are pregnant. It is shocking how many people think it is ok to ask, "Was it planned?", "Was it a surprise?". Even worse someone at work said "I can't picture it, YOU with a baby." They obviously thought that they knew me and don't because anyone who knows me well does not have this opinion of me. Anyway, in the future if someone tells you they are having a baby, just say congrats, and how wonderful it is.
