9 weeks

I really can't believe that we're at 9 weeks already! In spite of a nasty little incident on Monday morning (at work, blech!!!), I've been feeling pretty good this week. I'm definitely improving. Sure, I'm still tired, and extremely nauseous if I don't eat regularly, but the extent to which I experience these things is less and less... a relief.

We are still anxiously awaiting the second trimester- I'm tired of being secretive at work. My coworkers often ask me if I'm feeling ok lately... gee, the exhaustion LOOKS that bad? I've also been somewhat reluctant to work beyond 5pm, so I think the explanation in a few weeks will be a relief for me. We are also planning to tell my extended family at that time, which will be exciting given that I have a cousin just 6 weeks ahead of me.

I don't know if I've gained any weight.. I'm not overly anxious to hit the scale. I know that I did bloat a bit a few weeks ago, but I seem to be holding strong ever since, at least according to my clothes.

We are looking forward to our weekend - the weather should be good on Saturday (unseasonably warm), so I'm hoping for an apple orchard/pumpkin patch excursion. Other than that, hopefully we'll have time to focus on getting the house ready for baby again... Lots to do!!!

Glad to hear things are moving along nicely and smoothly, even if they are flying by!

That's so fantastic. I don't know how you manage to keep your big news a secret. I think it's a great idea in theory... but we just end up talking about every step of the process to everyone. When we finally get pregnant, I don't know if I'll be able to hold back!
