Olive, no martini please:-)

Well...we made it to week NINE. In my head, getting to this point has been somewhat of a mental struggle. To me, nine weeks seems pregnant...not just "a little pregnant" but really and truly pregnant. I've been looking forward to/dreading (if we didn't make it) this date, since we found out. I feel like now, people won't roll their eyes if I happen to tell them how far along I am. Actually, the fact that I can even state "how far along I am" freaks me out. Will I EVER believe that this is happening???

I still have an upset stomach, but with the exception of Tues night everything is staying down. I've been MUCH more tired suddenly. I love to sleep, so you wouldn't think that would be a problem for me, but things are starting to pile up at home.

McBaby has graduated to green olive status this week:-)

Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like... well... a baby!

Hooray for the little olive!

Hope your m/s goes away soon. As for the tiredness, well, I am still always tired. So, that might stick around for a while. We need naptime at work. :-)

Yay for 9 weeks! I tell you, those first 13 weeks (at least for me) were so stressful. At least you "feel" pregnant since you are so sick. Sounds twisted, huh? Once I hit the 2nd trimester and didn't feel sick anymore, I really didn't feel pregnant! I am just now starting to think it's real at 22 weeks! Maybe because she's moving now. It will seem real very soon! I promise! You WILL believe it! =) Hang in there!

This is very exciting! Hooray! And my advice? Sleep when you're tired, eat what you want to eat, and just take good care of yourself.

Precious! Nine weeks is very real! 3/4 of the way done with the first trimester - something to be celebrated!

Moving right along, YAY!! I still don't believe it for myself, so I'm pretty sure when the baby is in my arms I will know it's real!

9 weeks is a great milestone. Next week you'll be in double digits....well, by week number at least. :)

I hope you start feeling better and better with each passing day.

You should be getting your energy back soon. Then you can worry about things around the house. For now, just take it easy and nap when you feel like you need to.

You're always in my thoughts - I'm just so darn excited for you!

Well done little olive!! it is a great milestone indeed, some of my friends started believing they had in fact been pregnant when they held the baby for the first time! You are in my thoughts.
