Baby Lambert Due January 2014!

We are expecting!! After being married less  than 2 months I woke up incredibly nauseated one morning and took a pregnancy test... positive!! I then proceeded to take 7 more tests over the next few days "just to make sure" and then on Mother's Day 2013 we announced it. We just didn't feel the need to wait to share our joy. Today I am in my 9th week of pregnancy and have gotten to see the baby and heartbeat on ultrasound. It was in that moment my entire world changed somehow. I never thought I would get to experience pregnancy or be a mother so this is an exciting new path in our journey!!

Baby Lambert's First Photos

How far along? 8 weeks 4 days

Baby is the size of a: green olive

Total weight gain: 1.5 lbs

Best moment of the week: it was Saturday, we got to have our first ultrasound and it was amazing to see that there was a baby in there with a heartbeat!! I'm already in love.

Sleep? I can't get enough.. literally. My "morning sickness" has been keeping me awake at night with severe nausea and vomiting. I am very grateful for the occasional nap and the nights that I get some rest! 

Movement?  I read that the baby is moving all around in there but it's still too early to feel it.

Cravings? OMG yes. Chicken, mexican food, cheetos, fat free milk, pizza, bananas, kiwi, sprite, and froot loops. Oh and unfortunately I am craving sushi.. which I can't eat now that I'm pregnant. LOL

Anything make you queasy or sick? random smells including cigarette smoke and car exhaust. Also tangy foods are gross to me right now and so is plain water.

Gender: don't know yet.. although I have a sneaking suspicion it might be a boy!

Belly Button In or Out?  still an innie but just barely starting to get a "baby bump". Started wearing some maternity clothes here and there this week because I can't zip up my jeans anymore LOL

Aches & Pains: just nausea.. lots and lots of nausea. Ended up finally going to urgent care today because I'd gotten so dehydrated that I needed Zofran and IV fluids. Zofran is my new friend.

Happy or Moody most of the time? I am over the moon happy, although I'm sure my husband will tell you I have been very moody the last couple weeks. Pregnancy is funny.. one minute happy, next minute crying at a commercial, then willing to kill someone to get a donut or some rice, then crying again because you are so nauseated you can't eat what you are craving, then happy again because you are pregnant. LOL my poor husband.

Looking forward to: doctor appointment this week and hopefully another ultrasound and I hope we get to hear the heartbeat this time instead of just seeing it :)
