Pregnancy Diary – Week 11

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Another doctor’s appointment! In these early months, every appointment is exciting – but this one is double exciting. Today I will hear my baby’s heartbeat! I barely got any work done at work and kept chattering with my co-worker to help calm the butterflies in my stomach. I arrived at my doctor’s appointment nice and early, not able to concentrate on work any longer. I duly left my urine sample and sat down to wait. Jerry walked in right before the nurse called us to a room.

I lay down on the examining table and and the doctor placed a sticky gel on my abdomen. He ran the Doppler stethoscope up and down, trying to find the heartbeat, and suddenly, (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 10

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

This past week, I started my third month! Only seven more months to go! Honestly, it feels like forever already. Between the nausea and fatigue I feel like I’ve aged 10 years. Luckily I don’t gag on my prenatal pills (most women do when they’re nauseous) so at least I know my baby is getting the nutrients she needs. I make sure to drink a lot, too, to avoid dehydration. A friend of mine is about a month ahead of me and was hospitalized for 2 days to restore fluid in her body. Since she told me that, I make sure to drink, like, a gallon a day! It’s very important to stay hydrated, even during the (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 9

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

I woke up so hungry this morning, I finished off a pint of ice cream and two chocolate bars (I know it’s not the healthiest breakfast but I can’t stomach anything else). At least my body is getting some nourishment considering the nausea. The truth is, I should only be adding on approximately 300 calories extra each day. “Eating for two” does not mean literally eating fully for two people. Besides making it harder to lose the weight post-baby, you need to get enough iron, calcium and other nutrients to ensure that your baby grows properly. During the next week or two, your baby will reach a big milestone (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 8

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

At this point, my uterus is about the size of a orange and is slowly growing. That explains the cramping I’ve been feeling lately. The first time it happened, I panicked. I called my doctor at 3 AM, certain that I was having a miscarriage. My doctor reassured me, and told me that as long as the cramps aren’t severe and there’s no spotting, there’s nothing to worry about. That calmed me down a little, but I still analyze each cramp and wonder (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 7

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

Jerry surprised me and took me out last night. We went to this really nice restaurant on the water with a stunning view of the beach at sunset. Although I couldn’t eat any real food, Jerry got me a hot double mint chocolate chip cookie with an extra-large dollop of vanilla ice cream on top of it. I finished most of it, but knew I would pay for it later. We came home and went straight to bed, preparing for our (more…)
