Blog the Sprog

It's a very weird thing, making a person. I honestly never thought I'd do it, but here we are... so I'm gonna tell it like it is. It's a very scary and exciting time. Yikes!

A Jelly Baby sprog!

Went for another scan today - all is going well. It was moving around quite a bit and now looks like a jelly baby with its little arm and leg stumps.

The heart rate was 176bpm and it is now 2.36cm long.

Also miraculously feeling much less nauseas today - what a relief!

Almost 9 weeks...

... and still vomit-free!

But the nausea has made itself quite at home. I can't actually remember what it feels like NOT to feel sick.

Hopefully only a few more weeks to go before it gets better.

I had to remove all the scented candles from the bedroom... I could smell them from metres away!

Got my first set of baby clothes from Sam (my sister-in-law) - really cute! Makes it seem quite real suddenly...

Booby trapped!

As if they needed to get any bigger, my breasts have become very big, heavy and over-sensitive.

Justin is amused - I am not.

I have started sleeping in a bra top for comfort, because every time I moved in the night the pain of my boobs flopping around woke me up!

Yes, they are big and floppy!

I feel a bit like a Barbie doll about to fall over...

Damn that keen sense of smell!

Had to change my bodywash and deodorant... and my cats are already suffering 'cos I'm struggling to feed them - the smell of cat food is just too much!

Justin's deodorant and afershave, which is usually a really pleasant scent to me, makes me wanna hurl these days.

I already feel like my body is no longer my own!

A 7-week sprog pic

Still pretty much looks like a blob at this stage, but it has a heartbeat of 143bpm! And yes, it will be called 'it' until we know any better...

Ok, I admit I have never paid much attention to pregnant women around me - but was I so naive to think that 'morning sickness' just happened in the morning?

I always assumed you woke up, threw up and then went on with your day.

How wrong I was!

It's now 7 weeks and I have not yet thrown up once. But I feel like throwing up ALL day long. This sucks!
