Pregnancy Week by Week: 9

Week 9Baby size: Green olive
How I feel about being pregnant: Starting to think more about the actual baby than the pregnancy!
Symptoms: Off and on nausea, my sleepiness has returned ... along with heartburn. Oh yeah... it's reallllll fun to be around me at the house.
Food Cravings: I'm still loving my fruit. No real "cravings" other than that.
What I'm most excited about: I can't wait until I start feeling the baby move! I swear just once I felt a little flutter in there, but it hasn't happened since. I know it's WAY early, but it was reassuring for me to think about that little wiggle worm moving around.
Something sweet your daddy did for me: Ummm not left me? I've been a pain in the you know what lately. Several weeks of not feeling good is building up... and I know I'm a grouch to be around.
Boy or girl? Gosh, I don't know anymore. I'm still thinking girl though.
Something I've done to prepare for baby: Sent of my registration to the hospital where we'll be delivering little Baby B! It's amazing you have to do that so early, but they ask you to get it in before Week 14. I figured to just go ahead and get it done so I don't forget about it later. The little folder my OBGYN's office gave me about our birth place (which is awesome), had tons of pictures of sweet little babies in it... and of course I burst out crying the moment I opened it. Ohhhhh the hormones!
Funny moment: Chad is a snuggler - and when we're laying together on the couch or in bed, he likes to rest his head on my chest or stomach (likely so he's in a better position for me to scratch his head.) Well lately, for obvious reasons, that has NOT been so comfortable and I shriek whenever he rests his head on my tender midsection. Well the other day, Chad snuggled up into my side (which wasn't particularly comfortable... not because of the baby... but because he was pressing on my ribs). I told him that he'd have to move because it was uncomfortable. He loudly expressed his contempt and told me: "You've taken away all my other special places to lay, so you're going to have to deal with this one." I let him have it. ;)
Special moment: Going to your Aunt Molly's baby shower. She's about 6 weeks out delivering my first nephew, James, and I'm just enjoying savoring every minute I have of us being pregnant together.
