I may also try to fill in the following questions each week....or every other. Because, let's face it. I was 9 weeks last Thursday and am just now posting this :)Weight Gain: 0 pounds
Sleep: Totally normal for a mom with a one and three year old.
Gender: I think it's a girl, but I have the worst gut instincts about these things, so...with a grain of salt. Carter agrees with my instinct, Samuel doesn't care and Steven thinks it's silly to try to guess :)
Name: Still Ella Kennedy if it's a girl and still don't know if it's a boy
Feeling: Blegh. I don't remember feeling quite this bad with the boys, but memory softens those things and I also have two small children this time to care for. That makes a difference. I'm hoping the bone weariness and getting sick on the regular are going to start easing up soon. I am grateful that the cold I instantly get after getting a positive pregnancy test is gone. I don't know why that always happens, but it's a bummer.
Health: Regardless of how I currently feel, I am grateful that I am very healthy as is the tiny baby the ultrasound showed last Wednesday. A nice strong, 180 bpm heart rate. What a blessing! I'm hoping I can jump back into running next week or so. I know I will feel better with exercise...I just have to be able to do it without throwing up. (And yes, for those of you who count backwards, I had juuuuust found out I was pregnant when I ran the half marathon...another reason for slowing down at the end. But, will I always say that I ran my first half pregnant? Yes. Yes I will :)
Movement: not yet :)
Next Appointment: December 9th...and we go back for our anatomy ultrasound February 12th.
