Pregnancy – Week 7

Both Sergey and I attended mom’s management training course for 3 days. Lots of great ah-ha moments. :-) On the downside, work goes on and I seem to be an important player. My boss continuously tried to get me involved in the projects while I was in training. A bit irritating, but nice to be valued.

Since we were going to be very busy at work in the first week of November, I had to postpone my first pregnancy appointment. Now my first visit will be at 12 weeks.

We’ve attended a few Halloween parties. This year we didn’t invest so much in our costumes, we were cowboys, but still had a lot of fun.

Pregnancy – Week 6

Slept pretty much all weekend. Sergey managed to get me out for a walk both days for 3+ hours each! But besides that, weekend was pretty much all sleep. :-) Yet, on Monday I didn’t feel as rested as I’d hoped. Enjoying my sleep while I can. :-)

Tuesday 10/16/12 for the first time I felt a food aversion. Even by looking at a tomato soup, it made me a bit sick to my stomach. So I didn’t have any for lunch at work. Ironically, Sergey heated up the same tomato soup for dinner, which I also could not eat or even smell. Poor hubby had to make me a lobster soup, which did much better with my stomach and senses. What a spoiled brat I’ve become! Hope this doesn’t last too long. :-)

Our little one now looks a bit more like a hamster, :-) and he or she eats like one. :-) I start feeling low in energy almost every 2 hours. Saying “I’m eating for two” makes a lot more sense now. :-)

Worked out in the gym. Getting tired a bit quicker than before. But overall it was a good workout. My weight has not changed any, still at 129 lbs. = 58.5 kg.

Called nurse practitioner to ask about my light brown discharge. Of course she had some concerns, but after the conversation I concluded that it was quite alright given I was sexually active. Many other women bloggers have the same symptom and there is nothing to worry about.

Spent the weekend in Rocky Point, Mexico. It was wonderful to be able to swim in the ocean, breathe warm salty air, and eat lots of fresh fish and fruit. At times I felt I was eating for two again. :-)

Pregnancy – Week 5

Feeling tenderness in my breasts and tummy. Pregnancy symptoms are back. Even feeling a little barfy. Today was stormy and it rained. Maybe that’s the reason?! Getting tired quickly especially at work. Eating smaller portions more regularly helps. Going to the bathroom for 2. :-) Using dailu liners for the light brown discharge.

Baby is growing its brain and skeleton. Right now it’s the size of a sesame seed. Sergey calls me “mother-ship”. I call baby “динозаврик” =”little dinosaur”, because according to online images that’s what baby looks like now. :-)

Sex feels great! Both my research and OBGYN say it is ok to continue being sexually active all throughout pregnancy. It doesn’t hurt or bother baby in any way.

Learning to sleep on my sides. It is hard! So miss sleeping on my stomach… :-( soon!
