Well I'm here at my mom's hanging out with my family. We're going to have a BBQ tomorrow and hang out with my brother which will be really nice. Lots of yummy food too. Not that I need anymore. I feel huge lately. I don't think I've gained any weight, at least not since last week. My stomach just feels huge. It's like as soon as I got pregnant my abdominal muscles just gave up. My belly starts right under my ribs which makes look even bigger. I took some 8 week belly shots but I don't think I'm going to post them. I don't like any of them...uggh. By 12 weeks I'll probably be in maternity clothes! Good news though is that I really haven't been very sick. I've only thrown up twice and that was last week when I had that cold. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed..before I know it the first trimester will be over. Now I'm just worried about gaining a ton of weight since I haven't had much morning sickness!

My ticker moved to a new box! Now my little bean looks like an actual baby instead of a fish like creature. Only 217 more days...ugh!

Food cravings food aversions

One of the funny things about being pregnant is the way food affects you. All of a sudden now there are things that I can't stand. Like cinnamon gum not cinnamon in general just gum. Coarse ground pepper. I still like regular pepper just not the coarse ground pepper. And Japanese food, mainly teriyaki chicken and fired rice. Two months ago I still loved all of these things now the mere thought of them makes me want to gag. On the other hand there are things I crave that I didn't eat at all before or didn't eat very often. Like strawberry milkshakes, I liked milkshakes before but not really strawberry. Soft pretzels, I just bought a mega box of 36 at BJ's. Ice water, normally I like to drink water room temperature. Now I love ice water which is so strange to me.

Today was our first ultrasound. Everything was great. We heard the heartbeat and saw our little bean. It was a little surreal having an ultrasound again. I was pretty sure we wouldn't be seeing that room again. It definitely makes it more real seeing that little heartbeat on the screen. Wow I hope we're ready for this again!

As if morning sickness wasn't enough

Now I've got a nasty cold. It started as soon as we got back from vacation. I had a trip that started on Monday and I went hoping that I would be feeling better. Unfortunately it got worse. I ended up calling work when I was in Orlando monday night. Luckily they had someone who could replace me and they sent me home on the first flight tuesday morning. I've pretty much been in bed ever since. My ultrasound is tomorrow so hopefully I'll be feeling better by then. I'll do pictures from vacation soon....It was great!

My friend Lisa came over to take pictures tonight. I'm still in shock about how big I look in some of them...I've got to be bloated. There is no way that I'm showing at 6 weeks. The camera must add 10 your belly! She got some great pictures. Thanks Lisa!

Here is the real reaction...
To bad my eyes are closed as usual and it looks
like I'm about to lick my hand. Oh well it's still funny!

See there is just no way I could be that big already.
It's a great picture if I were four months pregnant!
