9 Week Survey

I had a great appointment today.  The baby is doing great.  Got to see him/her moving and bouncing and waving all around in there.  There was a good strong heartbeat at 169 bpm.  The doctor said my cervix is high and closed and has no idea as to why I was bleeding for so long.  She said that the bits looked all clear and she couldn't see any blood in there.  So I'm feeling very relieved and...dare I say it...a bit excited!  I know I still have 3 weeks left until I'm out of the dreaded 1st tri and I also know that there are no guarantees after that, but today the baby is OK and today I'm going to enjoy being pregnant.

Let's start it up with the weekly surveys which I'll be posting on Mondays since Saturdays are an annoying day to post and that's when I change weeks.

How far along?  9 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss? I'm down 2lbs since the thought of food in general makes me want to hurl
Maternity clothes?  No not yet, but I'm super bloated so I may break out the bella band sooner rather than later
Stretch marks? No
Sleep?  I sleep as much as my 3 year old allows me
Best moment last week? Getting a good report from the dr.
Movement?  No, but I do have some rumbly gas
Food cravings?  Sweets and Fruit Loops
Food aversions?  Chicken, garlic, beans, and eggs to name a few
Gender? Team Green this time around
Labor signs? No
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: Alcohol.  Pumpkin beer and robust Cabernets are all staples of fall
What I am looking forward to: My NT scan in a few weeks
Milestones: Baby has graduated from an embryo to a fetus

9 week bloat.  I am a hot ass mess in this pic, but you get the idea
