    2) How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Any old symptoms disappear? 
    Well, this weekend was horrendous!  I had to call out sick on Friday with a horrific migraine, and Saturday I couldn't keep anything down - even toast!!  Feeling a bit better this morning, still nauseous, but I managed not to throw up this morning, so I'm taking that as a win!

     3) When is your first (or next) appointment? 
    I have an appointment with my OB tomorrow morning, and my NT scan on Friday morning.

     4) Rants/Raves/Other? 
    I swear I "popped" overnight Saturday to Sunday.  Obviously since I'm a big girl, it's not extremely noticable to others, but I definitely can tell.  I've officially moved over to maternity jeans, and once we start telling people next week, I'll probably start wearing maternity tops too.  (I am in real need of new tops for work, but I'm been dragging my feet on buying any, knowing I had a limited window to wear them!).

     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)?
    I would love to open my own dance studio one day, and wish I still had the time to dance more than I currently do...unfortunately, the bills have to get paid, so accounting it is for now.

    I'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday. I have good days and bad. I was super exhausted on Friday and Saturday. The  nausea has been better the last couple of days. 


     3) When is your first (or next) appointment? 

    Next appointment is July 12. We plan to tell family after that. 

     4) Rants/Raves/Other? 

    I'm ready to feel more normal again. I also am ready to know what we are having, so I know whether to purge or keep all of our boy stuff. 

     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)?
    I love my job as a teacher, but it would bad great to be a library media specialist in my school or to be a part-time reading specialist so I could spend more time with my son/new baby.

  •  2) How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Any old symptoms disappear?

    So I was not having much for symptoms up until this past week.  My breasts and nips are still sore but I am not just starting to have some nausea and fatigue.  Come 3pm I am exhausted and cannot stop yawning.  I am also feeling a decrease in my energy levels.  Odd that they say most people start seeing a decline in these symptoms around 12 weeks but, for me, they are just beginning. 

     3) When is your first (or next) appointment?

    My next apt is tomorrow, actually.  I have my NT scan.  I am 12wks 2days.  I just had an apt this past Friday as well where they did an US too.  All looks perfectly fine.  I told my Dr. about my fears and anxiety and she offered to give me an US every week or 2 until I feel more confident in the pregnancy.  I am so lucky as I know most women only get 1 or 2 the entire pregnancy.  

     4) Rants/Raves/Other?

    Not a rant or rave but more of a sad feeling.  My best friend was pregnant, just 2 weeks behind me and had her first apt today.  They found that the baby had stopped growing at 7wks but the sack continued to grow and was 10wks.  She has to have a D&C on Thursday.  I feel awful and kind of guilty for my baby being healthy.  She had so many symptoms and I didn't.  I was so scared and anxious that something was wrong and she was so confident that her baby was fine because of all her symptoms and this is the result.  I am at a loss and have been an emotional wreck all day.  I feel like I shouldn't talk to her about my pregnancy or baby anymore because I don't want to remind her of what she lost.  :(

     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)?

    I would be a photographer.  I actually am a professional photographer and have been for several years but at the moment it is more of a supplement to my full time income.  I just love it, though.

    I have noticed that my migraines are worse during pregnancy. I still have some nausea, sore breasts, starting to feel some indigestion at night. Other than that feeling great! 
     3) When is your first (or next) appointment? 
    Next appointment is my first trimester screen on July 5th! 
     4) Rants/Raves/Other? 
    So excited for our gender reveal party on Friday!!! My DH already knows what the baby is so its killing me! 
     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)?
    I love teaching but I think I want to go back and get my masters to work in the school library.

  • 2) How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Any old symptoms disappear? Most of my 1st tri symptoms have gone except for the sore boobs.  I am starting to feel some flutters (EEKK!!) and have been having some headaches. 

     3) When is your first (or next) appointment? Not until July 14th... but we are going to visit my parents next week and we've booked a 3D ultrasound so they can see the baby! 

     4) Rants/Raves/Other? I am literally hungry ALL THE TIME since last week. I feel like I cannot get enough to eat! uhhhhh!! 

     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)? I would just love to be a stay at home mom.  I am pretty close to it (I own my own business and can work from home a majority of the time) but I would love to just be a stay at home mama without feeling guilty about not bringing in an income.

    2) How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Any old symptoms disappear? 
    I'm feeling pretty decent. My nausea likes to play peek-a-boo now, which is making it really fun to try to keep my pregnancy a secret from the in-laws that are in town for DH's family reunion (which is when we're announcing). 

     3) When is your first (or next) appointment? 
    Next appointment is Tuesday and I'm so excited/super scared. It's the first trimester screening and DH isn't able to go with me, but my mom is, so I'll have someone with me if I were to get bad news. 

     4) Rants/Raves/Other? 
    My in-laws drive me crazy. I'll leave it at that. 

     5) GTKY: What would be your dream job (if you don't already have it!)?
    I'm actually working towards my dream job right now and I'm around 2 years away from completing the second step! My dream job is to be a college literature professor. I just need to invest in a blazer with elbow patches!  :D Seriously though, reading is a passion of mine and every one of my lit teachers through high school and college have just fanned that flame, which is something  I want to pass on to future generations. :)  <3

    My dream job would be to sing. I am a singer but I would love that to be my only job. Then I could book the gigs I want and when I want. Thus sleeping in everyday!!!
