Nine Weeks today!!

Today I am exactly 9 weeks, if we are correct about my due date. My doc will be back from vacay on Monday and I can't wait to call and see when I can get an appointment.

I feel like the baby is stretching her (you don't mind if I call the baby her do you? drives Hubby insane lol) little arms and legs out as far as she can. My uterus feels like she needs more room... like she's trying her best to stretch me out lol. The morning sickness as hit me harder in the past couple days. I invested in some Sprite Zero, because it has no sugar so maybe I will be spared from gestational diabeties, and some saltines. I also find it very helpful to eat as soon as I get out of bed. So this morning I was eating cracked pepper and olive oil triscuits while I was getting dressed much to hubby's chagrin as he says that they stink lol. I have also found a new love for pickles as the vinegar seems to settle my stomache and the salt satisfies my craving for salt.

My upper belly seems to be pouching out. I know that is not the baby so I did some investigating. I read online that the baby is pushing everything upwards. Which is why I my muffin top is more prounounced than usual. I also had to put a rubber band through my skirt to wear to work today.

I also found online a cute name for the double belly that I have. A "B" belly, because it is shaped like a "B." But when the baby gets bigger and your waist disapears it because a "D" belly. Can't wait for my D belly!!

I am positive you guys are right about my dream being me just reading too much into it. Thanks so much for the kind words!!
