8 Weeks and 4 days

Today I am 8 weeks and 4 days - yes I am still counting in days and this will not change until after I am out of the dreaded first trimester and feel more comfortable.

This week has been mild compared to the chaos that was last week.

The nausea is okay - not great. We did find the preggie drops (anti-nausea hard candies for pregnant women) and the preggie pops (lollipops with the same purpose). Those are helping me at school because the Zofran makes your intestines to stop like it's rush hour in construction traffic. Nothing moves.

As promised:

How far along? 8 weeks and 4 days
Total weight gain: not sure, food has been staying down
Maternity clothes? busted out a few to try - I am at an awkward period. My non-pregnant clothes are too tight, the maternity clothes are too loose
Stretch marks? No new one
Sleep: Been slightly better, although the very strange and scary nightmares are getting to me
Best moment of the week: probably tomorrow if I get released from the specialist - we are hopeful!
Miss anything? Mexican food and chicken wings - apparently another thing to go bye-bye at the times
Movement: Nope
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mexican food and chicken wings - 2 of my most favorite things in the whole world and just the smell of them right now makes me run to the bathroom
Gender prediction: Been having dreams that GW is a girl - don't know if it means anything at all, too soon to tell
Labor signs: Nope
Symptoms: Nausea, Strong smells, Emotional, Having to pee all the time
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Off but just because of the bloat I feel which is apparently normal during the first trimester
Happy or moody most of the time? Depends on the day
Looking forward to: The morning sickness lightening up or going away completely so I can function again.
