8 WEEKS MAYBE?
So far my pregnancy has been a lot of ups and downs.
I had my first appointment last week and they didn't listen for the baby or anything because it's too Early but when she felt inside she thought I felt much farther along than 7 weeks.
I also have thought I have felt the baby move at least 3 times which shouldn't be happening until week 15 or 16 so???:
SO far I am fine one day and TOTALLY NOT FINE the next!
The insomnia is already a regular thing. Every night between 2 and 4 am I get up for a couple hours. I know this will only worsen as this was my worst symptom with both other pregnancies.
However, the morning sickness is VERY unpredictable. One day I get up and go spinning for an hour and do a great workout and feel totally fine. I'm usually starving everyday.
But then, there are days like yesterday where I started throwing up around 1 am, it continued into the morning with a terrible headache. It was almost like a migraine which I've never had in my entire life.
I had to call in sick to work which is the second time in now in 2 weeks because of sickness. Not only will I get in trouble eventually but I will use up the only maternity leave I have which isn't much. You are responsible to use your own accrued vacation time for your maternity leave so if you don't have any then you don't get anything. I think I might have had 5 days worth 2 weeks ago. UGH. I don't even want to think about it.
So what can I say. One day I'm fine. The next day I'm not!
Very unpredictable and scary since I am the bread winner.
I still feel GREAT on days I am not feeling nauseated while I'm working out!!!! I always have to eat and sleep afterwards though. I can definitely feel that my body is using A lot of extra energy elsewhere. But I still plan to work out as much as I am able and as long as I don't feel sick. I also plan to run a couple of 5K's coming up next month just for fun since I have been deprived of running for so long.
I am not going to run at all until one day before the race and see if my leg is okay or not. If it ends up finally being OK, I might do a 1/2 Marathon or 10K in October. It would really give me something to look forward to. I love racing. It's so fun for me!
I tried to do a little profile belly pic for you but there really wasn't enough to see anything. I have definitely noticed I am wider and thicker but it's not defined yet.
I also have this little hanging skin pouch that is always there from my weight loss that kinda fools you. So maybe at 12 weeks I'll have a little clearer bump pic for you!
My hubby and I have been very excited about the new baby and are starting to think up names. We always have a difficult time deciding on names so I hope we can thin of one before he or she pops out.
We have decided not to find out the sex this time around since we already have a boy and a girl. So this will be a fun birth. Milton was a surprise baby and boy was he the surprise of my life.
