9 weeks

My nerves are calmed... I had my scan on Friday and Nugget is measuring right on target and his/her little heart was beating away at 180bpm.

I won't post pics but just know Nugget pretty much looks indistinguishable from every other 8w3d fetus... Big head, little arms, very alienish.

I finally told my parents so that was cool. My little sister cried more than I did! Everyone has been so great!

Apparently as much as I sucked at GETTING pregnant, being pregnant isn't hard for me. I've been so lucky to be healthy, no sickness, no real issues at all. I know I'm lucky and I'm not taking that for granted at all.

PG friend is not so lucky, she's been miserable since 3 days before she found out. Nauseous, not able to eat, diarrhea, super exhausted, not able to leave the house and now the vomiting. I worry about her, she is a tiny girl to begin with, I hope it doesn't last long for her.

In other news, the cousin/roommate hasn't made much progress in the way of finding a new home which is becoming problematic. I need that room for a nursery, and frankly, I'm really irritable right now so the extra people/animals etc is just getting on my nerves! I'm trying to figure out how to give her a deadline without coming across as mean. I'm so blunt and upfront, some people take it really personally and I don't mean to be mean!

Anyway... that's it for now.


  1. Yay! So glad you had a great scan. They do look sort of freakishly alien in the beginning, don't they? :) Thank goodness it's not long before they're really looking like babies.

    I too felt fairly good in my first tri and never once took it for granted, especially when you think about people like your friend. Sounds miserable for such a happy occasion. Hope you continue to feel well!!

  2. Glad to hear everything is going smoothly for you :)

  3. Happy to hear that all is going well with your pregnancy! You will see that at your NT scan your Nugget will look more baby like.

  4. Congrats on the positive news! I hope the rest of your pregnancy is smooth sailing :)
