9 weeks

I’m 9 weeks today. So far, so good. I don’t really feel pregnant, except for the growing belly, and the obvious hunger issue. I still have my chest cold, it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. We had Thanksgiving today with Chris’ parents. It was a nice day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

So, we told the family today. I ordered me a shirt that said "I'm not fat, I'm Pregnant". Brayden walked in with his “I’m a big brother” t-shirt on. It was so cute. My Mom saw it and started hooting and hollering. My sister, Kristy asked me what my shirt meant..ummm, duh.... My Sister-in Law Kay said ‘nice shirt ya got there”. All in all, it was a good day. Everyone was excited for us and had lots of questions. I ate some good Thanksgiving food. My favorite was the marshmallows and yams. Yep, I am gonna get SOOO fat if I keep this up!

8 weeks, 2 days

2 more days until we get to share the news with the family! I am so excited! I can’t wait. I resumed my workouts yesterday. I didn’t work out all last week because of my chest cold. It hurt to breathe, so I knew cardio would give me coughing fits. It felt good to workout again, although I feel like I can’t do much. My chest is still tight and I start coughing if my heartrate gets up too high. I guess that’s good though. It will keep me from overdoing it. I got a refill on my RX for the chest cold, and I am taking both kids to the Dr tomorrow. They are coming down with it too. I can’t wait to eat Thanksgiving!!!! It’s my favorite meal of the year!YAY! Now, I know why I have 47 lbs pregnancies....LOL

Second Dr Visit

So, I’ve gained 6.5 pounds so far. I was hoping for WAY less, but oh well. We had our Dr visit today. We got to see the little bean. Dr Norton changed my due date to June 29. Not that it matters, my kids are always late. It will probably July 4th anyways. Dr told me my calories were OK, but stay away from carbs. So, I have to cut out pasta, breads, and cereal. I’ll be 8 weeks on Sunday.

Last Sunday, I took Kaylee to go see Hannah Montana. Chris took Brayden to the zoo. It was good to have some alone time with each kid. We still haven't told them yet about the new baby. Kaylee would totally let the cat out of the bag. She's so bad at keeping secrets. Not that I expect much from an almost 5 yr old.

I wonder if it’s twins….my stomach is already starting to pooch out. I’m only 6 weeks along. I hope I can hide it till Thanksgiving! If it is, I blame Melissa. She said "you're gonna have twins on your next pregnancy". 2 weeks till U/S! No morning sickness, no nothing…I don’t even feel pregnant, other than being tired and wanting a nap every day. If only I could actually take one.
