I just complained I'm not showing at all then this week suddenly my pants don't fit as well. I can't even button my jeans without feeling like I'm suffocating. Not to sound like I'm selling something here but I bought this Be Band thingee at Target because I really don't want to buy maternity jeans yet. I just wanted to say how awesome it is! My husband jokes that if he ever wants to let himself go, he'll just use one of these instead of buying new pants.

But even though I can't button my pants, I still don't LOOK pregnant. It's just irritating that stuff doesn't fit very well. I own 4 sports bras, and the only one that fits is one that was always too big for me and now that one is starting to ride up my stomach so I have to wear a shirt over it at the gym. I've wanted to start swimming laps at the gym but if I tried to wear any of my old bathing suits (2 piece!) I look like Pamela Anderson in a top 3 sizes too small. So I bought a tankini top that's a size larger than my normal size, it's plenty big around my stomach but at least my boobs fit. I don't own any bottoms that match it but I don't even care at this point.

I just feel so frustrated with clothing now. I don't want to wear sweatpants all the time but I also don't want to start buying new clothes that'll only be too tight again in 2 months OR maternity pants that are too big. Once you start to grow a belly does it grow fast or what? I'm baffled that there's no in between sizes.

How far along are you?
9 weeks. Due date is Oct 17

What symptoms are you experiencing?
constant nausea, constant exhaustion, sore nipples

How are you feeling?
sleepy and sick

Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go?
First midwife appointment this past Tuesday! I got my due date, Oct 17. When my mom was pregnant with me, my EDD was Oct 17 but I was born on Oct 19. My sister's bday is Oct 16. Half of my dad's family's bdays are in Oct so its pretty cool! We are definitely going for a VBAC and I will only see doctors who are on board with that. My last pregnancy I saw a perinatologist for a check up and he freaked out on me and I had an unnecessary C-section, so none of that this time!

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, etc..)
nope

Any questions you want to ask?
Do you guys take anything for the nausea? I'm having trouble eating anything...ginger ale and chamomile/nettle tea help for a few minutes but not long enough to get a meal in.

Any food cravings?
just bread....nothing with too much flavor

Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week!
I told my family. They were really excited!

I had to get a pap smear done today at 11 weeks. The doctor tried to find the heart beat while he was at it and couldn't. He tried the first time for twenty minutes and then gave up and ran my tests. Afterwords he looked again and couldn't find anything. They had to take me to get another ultrasound. The little monkey was leaning against the back of my uterus so it made it impossible for him to hear a heart beat.

My baby is out of control. It was doing jumps and spins and all sorts of stuff in there. I can't believe I have a thing in me two inches long that moves that much and I can't feel it. It was like a little Mexican Jumping Bean. The heart was clocked at 167bpm which is 2 more than the first time. They said anywhere between 150 and 180 is healthy at 11 weeks.

I wish the doctor didn't ask me scary questions like if I was spotting or anything. He could have just said, "Oh well..we can't find the heart beat a lot! Let's just go get an ultrasound to be safe!" Way to work me up over nothing >.>; He acted really, really nervous that he couldn't find a heart beat.

Oh the ultrasound technician said it's more like 11 weeks and 6 days. She told me to still go by my original date of 10/8/2010, but I mean - it might be earlier at this point. Every time they check me, it's older than they thought it should be. I should be at exactly 11 weeks right now according to my last period. The first ultrasound said I should be at 11 weeks and 4 days. Now it's 11 weeks and 6 days e.e
