Early Pregnancy Woes: This, my fifth pregnancy, has been the roughest. I went for an ultrasound at 7 weeks only to find out I was only six weeks, so I started getting sick much earlier. It also lasted much longer. On the bright side, they adjusted my due date for the first time, so maybe this baby won't be so "late." Some notes from early on.

7 weeks
I've been gagging every day for two weeks and the kids haven't noticed. I think that's a testament to the kind of winter we've had.
8 weeks
Keeping a stool in the bathroom has never seemed so brilliant.
8 weeks 4 days
My search for unscented deodorant that was actually unscented finally ended. Sheesh. Also: unscented face wash.
9 weeks
Even a stomach bug winter like we've had can't hide the truth from Maggie. She asked if I was sick from a baby in my tummy. After I threw up in the car.
9 weeks 3 days
Dalton has begun starting sentences with "after you throw up..."
9 weeks 6 days
You can't go on Big Thunder Mountain. You're sick, you might throw up on the ride.
10 weeks 4 days
I had to change my shirt because it smelled like Mexican food
10 weeks 5 days
I had to change my shirt because it smelled like French fries

Etc. finally started feeling better around 16 weeks, and off zofran around 18. I was also super paranoid because the doctor had trouble finding the baby's heartbeat a few times, just because s/he was hiding. Now I can feel him/her move a lot (my favorite part of pregnancy) and other than being tired and short of breath, I'm in the pregnancy sweet spot and doing my best to enjoy it.
