Nine Weeks

Nine Weeks
How far along? Nine weeks and six days.  

Baby's size? Dragon Baby is the size of a southern pecan. 
Baby's nickname? Still Dragon Baby. I mostly refer to the baby as "baby" though. Maternity clothes? Not yet but I did have to get some larger clothes. My pants were getting a little too uncomfortable for my liking. Exercise? I've been really bad in this area. I haven't even been walking. My goal was to hit 10,000 steps every day during my pregnancy but I've only hit that number twice this week. Once I get settled in my new job, I'll definitely be adding workouts to my schedule. Sleep: I've been sleeping A LOT. More than eight hours each night. On Friday night, my husband and I slept ten and a half hours. We were in the mountains and we obviously needed to sleep in. It was wonderful! Best moment this week: It's tough to choose just one. I ended up leaving my previous job and started my new job where I'll be able to work from home. My husband and I also spent this past weekend in Idyllwild. Miss anything? I miss enjoying my coffee. I still have a hard time with drinking coffee.  Movement: Again, I'll feel butterflies every now and then but I'm not sure if that's the baby or just me thinking too much. 
Food cravings: My cravings have switched from savory foods to sweet foods. I've craved ice cream and frozen yogurt, Eggo waffles, pancakes and a Starbucks Frappuccino {even though I'm struggling with drinking coffee}. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: My nausea is, for the most part, gone! The only thing still making me queasy is coffee. I'm starting to feel more like myself again. Gender: Unknown. Symptoms: I've been tired. I had some lower back pain after walking for a while in Idyllwild on Saturday. I had to go back to the cabin to take a quick nap. After that, my back was fine. I had a toothache for a few days last week and it's gone now. I had terrible acne on my chin this week. Tons of blackheads and a couple whiteheads. Luckily no cystic acne like I used to get before I was pregnant. I've also had a stuffy nose. I've read all of these are completely normal. My friend also told me over the weekend,  "Babies are like parasites. They take everything from you." Wedding rings on or off? On. 
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy. I was moody when we were coming home from Idyllwild. I was just so tired and I wanted to be home. 
Looking forward to: I find myself always looking forward to my next meal. Not much has changed since pre-pregnancy.
