Week 9 of Pregnancy

Monday, September 30, 2013

So far I'm in week 9 of my pregnancy. I've been extremely tired and have had morning sickness. Lately the only thing I can stand to eat is crackers so I tend to eat a lot of those. I have been working out but not always as much as I should. I have to make sure I workout in the morning or the afternoon because if I don't there is no way I have the energy at night. As of this morning I have gained 3.4 pounds since I have found out I was pregnant which I'm not happy about. This week I'm going to work on getting my minimum of 30 minutes of exercise in every day and focus on eating healthier foods then just crackers.

    Sounds like you are doing just fine! It seems to me that my weight gain started around 9-10 weeks, and most of that weight is extra blood volume, water weight, etc. Remember, the scale will go up, but that doesn't mean you are not "losing weight." In the end, you very well may find that you end up lighter than when you started. The best thing you can do, is take care of yourself. Eat as best as you can, exercise as best as you can. I spent the better half of my first trimester eating carbs all the time! I couldn't bear to eat meat or veggies. I wanted bread and crackers! It will all level out soon. Just keep doing what you can! I'm here if you ever need to talk!

    Just make sure that you are taking care of yourself! Hope the morning sickness doesn't hang around too long.

    I hope your morning sickness gets better.... I remember being sick with my daughter the entire time I was pregnant. So not fun.

    Sounds to me like you are doing all you can. I remember feeling that exact way and honestly I was sick the entire time I stopped throwing up at about week 28 but only gained 11 pounds the entire time. If all you can eat is cheese or crackers then eat that. There were so many days when it would kill me to even drink water. I am sure you know that as you already have a beautiful child.

    Don't beat yourself up and take all the rest you can get because that little bean obviously wants you to sleep. Congrats on the new addition headed your way!
