1.) How far along are you? 8 wks, 2 days
2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? SOO tired, constant low grade nausea (before eating, while eating, after eating) Sore nipples that almost make me cry when DS latches on. Some lightheadedness every once in a while
3.) How are you feeling? Pretty crappy. This first trimester has been WAY harder than it was with DS (prolly since I can't sleep as well, have a toddler to chase, and was not in as good a shape prior).
4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? Nope. Not until September 14th!! Can't wait to hear a heartbeat!
5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? We have ongoing issues--DH has chronic pain and is desperately seeking a solution. DS has been cared for by my sister during the day for the last 18 months, but she is moving out at the end of the week--so DS will be spending some days with my parents, and a couple days at "school" starting next week. I'm a professor and classes start this week! Just taking it one minute at a time.....
6.) Any questions you want to ask? How do those of you with LO close in age manage their needs? I have such a hard time imagining how we will be able to give a newborn and a 2 year old all the attention they both will need!
7.) Any belly pics from this week? Not yet, but I do think I'm starting to show!
8.) Any food cravings? Occasionally--mac and cheese, cottage cheese, olives, and ice cream (not all together!) are the main things.
9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! It's actually starting to feel real that this is happening! That has come with some scary feelings but also excitement. I'm hoping once we hear the heartbeat DH and I can finally start to enjoy the idea of being pregnant again!
