so this is what #3 looks like at 9 weeks :) I've been so sick and haven't felt like doing anything, so this is coming really, super-de-duper late. I'm 16 weeks now and am finally feeling better. it's felt like ages, but I almost feel normal now.
I started feeling pregnant a couple of weeks before I got a positive on a home pregnancy test, so I wasn't surprised, but it was still exciting to see the line show up. I left it out where I knew Matt would find it, and he was thrilled - it's all he can do to not tell everyone he comes in contact with as soon as he knows we're expecting, which I know was very difficult for him while a lot of his family were in town recently.
food became tricky by week 4. nothing sounded good and anything I did manage to choke down didn't sit right. salad was alright, but not filling or satisfying at all. I tried to eat small amounts of different things, which worked okay for a few days, then I would start craving one thing and burn myself out on it. I never felt like I craved much with my first two pregnancies, but this time I actually, really wanted those giant pickles, and ate pickle after pickle. I just kept shoveling them away to the point that at the end of the jar I wanted to drink the juice - this has never been appealing to me. ever. I did stop myself because I could only think how dehydrated I would be after! I also tried some pickle flavored Lays... I do not recommend these. apples seem to be my only friend right now.
stuff-wise, we are set if this is a boy, but we are totally at odds on boy name choices so I'm really hoping it's a girl this time! we just have to wait a few more weeks to see. luckily we're at the end of the year when the weeks just fly.
