Finally! My appetite is returning! I got on the scale last week and was shocked to see that I have dropped 10 pounds. TEN. Um, shouldn't I be gaining weight? I'm sure it will come soon enough, but it was a little concerning.
Reading over the last few weeks makes it seem so short. But time has been dragging! As I approach the end of week 11, and the beginning of coveted week 12, I feel so many things. I'm almost relieved...and I'm still scared...and I'm just ready. On Monday, I have my first doctor's appointment and ultrasound and, if everything is well, we go public. And I'm still not sure how I feel about that. It will be a different experience for sure. Our poor parents have been troopers and I think everyone will be relieved after Monday.
I can definitely tell that my uterus is expanding this week! It's positioned lower than I thought, but I did a double take in the mirror when I saw it.
It still hasn't quite sunk in for Drew, yet. But I have money on the fact that he'll shed a tear or two at the ultrasound on Monday :)
Week 10 & 2 years
Here I am, at the beginning of week 10, trying to choke down a tuna sandwich. My gag reflex has been on overdrive lately. It seems I can hardly brush my teeth without gagging and I have to yawn very carefully. Another fun fact, my ears pop a lot. It feels like they are clogged, which causes me to yawn, which causes me to gag...which we know is trouble. Pregnancy sure is glamorous.
On a happier note, today is Drew and my two year anniversary! It's been so overshadowed by the baby thing and the moving thing that we nearly forgot. But at this moment, I am overwhelmingly grateful. Grateful for my sweet hearted husband, grateful for my life.
