Not much new to report from week 9.
I'm still thirsty all the time.
Chocolate soft serve that M tries to surprise me with tastes like coffee, and I can't eat it. So he buys peanut butter cups (see how supportive he is....) and although they are usually my favorite they smell gross, and I can't fathom eating one. Guess that is a good thing - because I would surely gain weight.
Co-worker's frozen breakfast in the microwave makes me want to high tail it to the bathroom - so I sniff the apple cider I am craving recently, and avoid losing my breakfast.
I don't really feel pregnant. Or what I imagined being pregnant feels like. I guess once I hear a heartbeat (11/25), or once I feel it move... it will be more real. Right now I just feel like I have a parasite taking over my body making me tired, hate food, and require 120+ ounces of water a day.
My belly hasn't become noticeably larger than last week... but I read now that I'm in week 10 (and my uterus is the size of a grapefruit instead of a pear) that I will start seeing some bulge begin to develop. Hopefully it will be slow going, and something I can hide until after I break the news to everyone on Thanksgiving. I guess this is when being overweight, and wearing big baggy clothes all the time comes in handy.
The only new development has been really bizarre dreams. Vivid dreams. Last night I was trying to rescue children from a classroom right on the beach at the ocean. There was a certain time of the year this classroom was always uninhabitable because the tide was so high that it would envelop the classroom. I could actually feel the waves hit me. The sand pepper my body, and the occasional broken shell hit my legs, etc. Was pretty crazy. Needless to say I woke up sore and stiff. Must have been from laying still for too long as my girl cat was still nestled close to my belly where she loves to sleep. She is skittish, though, and if I were thrashing in my sleep, she wouldn't have stayed with me.
I hope everything is going well in your lives!!!
