What can I say? Nothing, and I do mean nothing, has been going on with me lately. Just the usual tiredness, nausea, sore tatas. What else can I say it's hard waiting for stuff to happen.

I am slowly noticing a change in the way my clothes are fitting. Because I should have gone down to a 12 right at the time I found out I was pregnant all my size 14 are still 'big' just not as big as before. I no longer need to wear a belt with them in other words. I am filling them out. According to my scale I have gained about 2 to 3 lbs-which isn't bad actually. I am trying to keep it less than 170 until the next trimester (right now I am about 167) when I am sure I will gain a whole lot. I really want to keep the weight gain around 25 lbs. It will make it so much easier to lose after our Clumpy is here.

In the mean time I've just been trying to remain positive since the waiting is so hard. We have 5 more days until my first real Ob appointment and then we'll have to schedule the 11w downs scan. I am nervous about that scan, not because I am worried that Clumpy is going to be downs positive but because we haven't seen her/him for a while and I have no idea what's going on in there. I just hope her/his little heart is still beating away in there and all the limbs and brain and all the body parts are growing how they should.

I haven't had any cramping or bleeding incidences and so far I still feel decidely pregnant so---I think we are okay but it's hard not to be nervous about this kind of stuff. I am excited to see my Doctor though and see what she has to say.

That's it from here. I am trying to keep my breakfast down while simultaneous reviewing advertising (oh the fun of it).

Well, your continuing symptoms are the best sign you have right now that things are going OK. It is really hard to just trust that things are fine at the beginning.

Thinking good keep-on-truckin'-Clumpy thoughts for you...

I am glad to hear things are still good. Your post makes me think about that Tom Petty song (the waiting is the hardest part):-)
I cant wait to hear about the u/s! Good thoughts!!

I'll be the bearer of bad news: You never relax before the appointments. Every time, even in my 9th month, I'd hold my breath when the midwife would look for the heartbeat because I was so nervous. And once they're out ... you worry even more! But there is an upside: All that worry is turning you into a mommy.

Looking forward to hearing al is well...
