Potato Gun

Zac and I were at Walmart buying groceries and I came across a potato that looked like a gun. I found it amusing, so I figured I'd put it in here.

I didn't blog about the holidays. Christmas was peachy. We went to Aunt Trish's for a family get-together. I wasn't planning on telling people I'm pregnant until the "safe zone" of 12 weeks, but Mom let it out already.

The spotting stopped after a few worrisome days. I'm already showing a little and have strong symptoms of hunger, exhaustion, nausea, and frequent trips to the bathroom. I've even started waking in the middle of the night with leg cramps.

Food cravings: Vinegar and citrus flavors.
Food aversions: Candy of all sorts, especially chocolates, bacon, fried foods.
Favorite food: Chik Fil A, Olive Garden. Luckily, Zac's been making homemade Olive Garden salads to tame the beast within.

Zac and I were watching Friends: The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs and decided to play the game of naming all the states. Neither of us could list all 50 states, but 45 is better than none, right?

I haven't been at my computer in forever, thanks to constant nausea and exhaustion. I had an ultrasound a little over a week ago. Growth was on target, heart rate normal.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How far along? 9.5 weeks.
Size of baby: A green olive!
Total weight gain/loss: No change.
Maternity clothes: Not yet.
Gender: Don't know yet.
Movement: Too soon to feel anything.
Sleep: A lot.
What I miss: Not feeling anxious.
Cravings: It's random.
Symptoms: Exhausted, nauseated.
Best moment this week: Seeing Bun's movement and heartbeat.

I'm very much in love with this little Bun. I've had a bit of brown spotting last night and today, but the clinic reassured me that there shouldn't be anything to worry about unless there is red blood, heavy bleeding and cramping. I don't have those, so I'm staying rested on the sofa and hoping the spotting goes away. I can't help but worry. My official OBGYN appointment is the 28th, when I'll be a little over 11 weeks. I'm going to see if I can get a sooner appointment and an ultrasound or blood test to check Baby's status. Meanwhile, I'll keep breathing and willing my body to hold on to this one.
