9 Weeks!

Today I hit 9 weeks! That is pretty cool. I'm also feeling a lot better - I've finally learned how to manage a lot of symptoms I've been having, which is nice. The mild nausea I was having is easy fixed by not eating junk food and eating smaller meals (der). The constipation is slowly being resolved by my new prenatal with stool softeners (hurrah), more liquids and homemade bran muffins. And I've learned not to overtire myself.

On Saturday - I was out all day, watching Aaron's soccer team play, helping a friend move, and then go out to dinner. Sunday I got up earlish, drove with a friend to a yarn sale (about a 1.5 hour drive one way) walked all around town there, and then drove home. From 4 PM until I went to sleep I was nauseous, exhausted and miserable.

Lessons learned.

If you go read the comments from my last post - you gals (and Aaron! You got my husband to comment on my blog!) were all so right. I understand it is our business what and when we tell people - but my MIL just makes me nervous. She is a gossiper, and I know it's going to be a big conversation on how we didn't tell people right away.... how we've been going through some tough times with the whole TTC thing.... blah blah blah....Poor Cece.... Poor Aaron. I hate knowing the buzz that will surround the announcement. But I'll get over it!

Huzzah for 9 weeks!

9 weeks...things are really moving along! And I loved Aaron's comments from yesterday. It is always fun when husbands come out of hiding.

Oh and prenatals with stool softener are a life saver!

9 weeks turns into 9 months really fast. Enjoy it while it lasts. Also waiting to tell people you're pregnant until 12 weeks is very common. We still have friends that say we lied to them about being pregnant with lyra. We didn't lie, we made the best decision for our family, which is what you're doing too. Try and focus on what's good for you and not what other people will be saying or thinking, cause they're not living it! Maybe you should wait to tell MIL for 3 more weeks.
