Pregnancy Wednesday: 9 weeks


So, since I am terrible at keeping up with Wordless Wednesdays, I decided to create Pregnancy Wednesdays!  Since Wednesday is the beginning of my pregnancy week and I want to talk pregnancy with you guys...seemed like a neat idea!  So feel free to post your pregnancy comments, questions, etc and/or what week you are, how you are feeling, anything new with your pregnancy, etc!

As for me, I am 9 weeks today!  Seems crazy to me; like a dream!  I never shared with you guys, but conceiving this baby was a tad difficult.  We had been trying for 6 months!  Which I have been told by midwives, doctors, and parents that 6 months is not a long time...but we got pregnant with Miss A the first month that we 6 months this time seemed like an eternity.  When that stick said "pregnant" I truly felt as though I was dreaming.

I am feeling really good!  No morning sickness (didn't have any with Miss A either) and just generally feeling good.  In fact, I keep forgetting that I am pregnant because I really don't feel anything.  Some days I am a little tired...but others I am not.  So it could just be lack of sleep and not actually pregnancy...who knows!

I remember with Miss A, I needed to go maternity shopping around 8-9 weeks as suddenly my clothes just did not fit.  I was surprised this time as 8 1/2 weeks came and I still had not started feeling tight in my clothes. Well as of yesterday, it seems like BAM my clothes don't fit.  It is so funny...Monday, clothes felt fine.  Woke up Tuesday and suddenly, I feel like I have a belly.  Sadly, I have gained weight since having Miss A, so I need to go maternity pants shopping.  My pants from my first pregnancy fit, but they don't look very nice...LOL!  Guess my hubby is just going to have to buy me pants for Christmas!

So that is where I am at!  If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or just want to talk pregnancy....leave a comment below!!!  I can't wait to hear from other mamas out there on their pregnancy experiences!  Also, if you have questions, go ahead and ask!  I am a Labor and Delivery nurse and can answer them or there are plenty of other mamas reading that would love to chat pregnancy!

Weird Pregnancy Food of the Week:  I can't get enough dill pickles.

Happy Pregnancy Wednesday!


  1. I am 29.5 weeks with my first and it took us 5 months to conceive-- I understand the frustration! But congrats on your pregnancy! Are you able to use a Bella Band type deal until you can get new pants? I did that for awhile although I found it annoying and slightly disconcerting to walk around with my pants unbuttoned, it did the job :)

  2. At least your hubby knows what to get you for Christmas lol. Congrats! We will start trying to get pregnant in a few months.

  3. Some times I am a little exhausted...but others I am not. So it could just be insufficient rest and not actually pregnancy
