8 weeks

Pin It
I'm now 8 weeks pregnant :)
So far so good! 
I noticed last week that I was feeling lightheaded and weak in the mornings, every morning, and mostly into the afternoon as well, and I thought to myself...morning sickness, NO!!!
But, I figured out a way around it! How did I manage this feat you might ask? 
Well, I have learned that I cannot go a long time without eating. 
If I do I start to feel very sick.
So, I am constantly eating small meals or snacks all day.
I thought to myself, "hmmm there is a little bean sized baby in there taking all of my food, and the time between dinner and breakfast is such a long stretch", so I had a 'LIGHTBULB' moment, I decided to eat a small snack right before I go to bed. 
Guess what?? 
I feel perfectly fine in the mornings now :)
No more feeling crappy all day, YAY!
Now, do I like eating right before bed? No.
Do I want to get in the habit of eating right before bed? Nope.
But, it's what my little baby needs right now, and so the sacrifice will be made!

Ok, on to the stats!
Weight gain/loss: I have actually already gained 1 pound!
Any sickness? Not anymore ;)
Cravings: Since we moved here to California, 4 months ago, I found out they have a Cafe Rio here, and I've been craving it this whole time, so this week we finally went :). Since fulfilling that craving, I've been wanting Cashew Chicken...anyone have a good recipe to share??
Events: We actually went to the doctor yesterday for our first appointment. I took our son to the appointment, and we were so excited to hear the heartbeat! 
When we got there we found out this doctor's office doesn't do any ultrasounds until 20 weeks :(
My son and I were both pretty bummed.
Long story short we weren't as thrilled with the whole visit, so we are going to see a new doctor next week!
And they do ultrasounds, so we'll get to hear the baby next week :)
