It’s been 6 weeks since my last update. Not a whole lot has happened since then. The stowaway is treating me nicely: no morning sickness, breast tenderness has subsided and the decrease in appetite is slowly disappearing.
I had my first OB appointment with Dr. “Anderson” on August 2nd, at 11 weeks 1 day pregnant. My urine levels came back normal, we did the usual first-time patient evaluation and then the doctor did an external ultrasound to take a look at the little bugger.
My appetite still isn’t back to “normal” yet and you can see from my measurements chart that I gained a few pounds over the last 2 weeks and have since lost that weight again. I’m not sure if that was muscle weight gain from my ballet classes (yup, taking ballet again) or if I was just retaining water.
BUT… with that drop in weight, my stomach is a bit more defined. No, I don’t have a six-pack…
I have a BUMP!
That’s right, the stomach sticking out over the waistband of my pants is not just ME!
Ready for a bonus pic??
Guess who else also popped!
Nicole is just 3 days ahead of me in her pregnancy and is looking great!!
I’m going to keep a gallery of all the “bump” pictures Nicole and I take and have added menus under “Not-The-Mama” for easy viewing.
