Week 9 update (August 16 - 23, 2009)

This has been a totally amazing week from the start -- we arrived in Davao last Sunday and I tried to hide my nausea from my parents (we want to tell them about the pregnancy after 3 months). Thank god they left for Makati the same day we arrive and I was back to my dry-heaving ways in a flash ;-) Then Thursday, I had my first OB checkup and ultrasound. It was really awesome and I made a separate post about it. After the checkup (which confirmed the pregnancy), hubby's grade school nephew asked me if I was pregnant. YIKES! How could a child know? My weight gain?? Saturday, we attended a wedding (hubby's side) and just about everybody asked us if I was pregnant. We denied it, of course.. showbiz!! LOL! I wonder what next week will bring..

How far along? 9 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: I gained 2 kilos! Which is a lot considering for the first trimester, a pregnant woman should only gain at most 2 kilos. And I still have a month to go! o_O
Maternity clothes? Not yet but I'm wearing loose clothes to hide my baby BLOAT -_-
Stretch marks? Nothing so far..
Sleep: Still sleeping most of the day.. And sleeping soundly at that.
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby and hearing his/her heartbeat for the first time last Aug 20! Surreal experience! =)
Movement: None.
Food cravings: Crabs and seafood!!
Gender: Still hoping for a baby boy..
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? IN
What I miss: walking around Makati and knowing that buttery pastries are just minutes away from my mouth ;-)
What I am looking forward to: Telling our families and friends that we're pregnant! =)
Weekly Wisdom: Start taking folic acid once you're sexually active. You never know when you're gonna get pregnant so at least you'll have peace of mind when you get knocked up -- you won't be thinking about neural tube defects (due to lack of FA) in your baby day in and day out like me -_-
Milestones: First ultrasound! =) Also, a complete stranger asked me if I was pregnant last Aug 16! He was an airport employee tasked in checking us in who said he must ask the question as it is SOP. Which totally surprised me because I've never been asked before! I therefore conclude it's the weight gain = I look pregnant :p
