I missed 9 weeks! I've had a bad sinus infection/cold/cough all week and haven't had much energy. I hope I can keep up and not skip another week!
I cannot possibly describe how huge I feel these days. How is that even possible at only ten weeks pregnant!?! The baby is the size of a kumquat (only an inch long!) so why on earth do I look so enormously pregnant?? It is so bizarre to me. I know that some of my belly is obviously fluff, but I'm only a few pounds off from what I weighed when I was pregnant with Abby, so it's pretty crazy. For comparison's sake, here is me at 10 weeks pregnant with Abby (although this dress doesn't give a great representation of my bump):
And here is me wearing the same outfit that I wore for my ten week picture with Baby #2 at 27 weeks with Abigail:
And a side by side just because:
Ahh! Kind of scary. Anyway, other than my sinus infection, which I am now taking antibiotics for, I'm feeling great. It makes me incredibly anxious, because I still don't really feel pregnant at all. I'm getting a little concerned about what my weight gain might be with this pregnancy as well. I was SO lucky when I was pregnant with Abby. I already weigh exactly what I did the day I delivered Abigail! I've gained about three pounds since finding out I was pregnant. At this rate, I'll be Shamu by delivery time. Not cool!! As opposed to constant morning sickness, I'm basically a ravenous pig all day long. I'm ALWAYS hungry. And I only want carbs. Hopefully that changes soon because I can't continue like this!
I think that's all for now. We have our next OB appointment next Friday and I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I feel like the baby has to be fine, because I keep growing and getting bigger. But I worry every day that something is just off with this pregnancy, because it feels so very different than the last one. My gut says this baby is a BOY all the way!! The funny thing is that I would really love another little girl, and especially for Abby to have a sister. I would love a boy too, though, so either way it's wonderful news. I can't wait to make sure that baby is doing great and the heart beat is still strong. I'll be better next week about posting on time!
