How are you feeling?

I get asked this question a lot now that people know I'm pregnant, which is the first question I would ask a pregnant person too. Honestly, I've been great! When we first found out almost four weeks ago I wouldn't have even guessed that I was pregnant - no nauseau, no moodiness, I felt great...

...but I desperately needed to eat tomato basil soup at least once a day, it got to be a little ridiculous. (tomato basil soup for breakfast - don't put it past me)

Now I'm seven weeks in and have started noticing that I am definitely pregnant, for instance the thought of tomato basil soup now sickens me. I can't even look at the picture in this post without feeling nauseous. The past two days I've been feeling a little carsick (that's what I tell myself anyways). Carsick while sitting at my desk, carsick watching tv, maybe it's not carsickness.

I haven't had any weight gain but I'm not too worried. I'm not going to be one of THOSE pregnant people that agonize over every single pound and drive everyone crazy obsessing about still fitting or not fitting into their jeans. I plan on excercising just like I have, eating for one, having more protein and wheat germ (hear that mom!), and I'm sure I'll stay within the 25-30lb range that the doctor says is "normal". If not, I'll get a trainer afterwards. No stressing, this will not be the end of the world.

So that being said everything is great! (but don't come near me with any tomato basil soup)

People will continue to ask you how you're feeling until it starts to get a little annoying, but it's definitely nice to know they care! People will also ask you the same questions over and over like do you know what you're having and do you have a name picked out. Some people ask you the same question every single time you see them. You're like didn't I tell you that the last 10 times I saw you? haha..it's great! I miss being pregnant!

I found that when you start to feel nauseas, to eat something small. For me, it was teddy grahams. I kept them around and munched on them and it would take care of the nausea....or however you spell it! -Heather E.

Love the post!

Keep telling yourself you're not worried about the weight gain...it's cute. Your body will do everything it can to destroy that optimism.

Juuuuust kidding, sort of.

Megan was right! And as much as I tried to prevent it, I still gained 70+ pounds. However, lost every bit of it since I breast fed! You'll be fine.

I'm glad you are feeling okay, and that the "carsickness" is relatively mild! haha As far as the poundage is concerned, just eat well and live well and who cares how much you gain? I gained almost 40 pounds with my babies and I didn't care because I knew that I was putting good, healthy food in my body! You are gonna be a hot preggo no matter what! LOL
p.s. take pictures of your belly growing..... it's so fun to see how it changes. I didn't do it and I wish I had. You don't notice how big it is until you can't see your feet or tie your shoe. It's really cool to look back at the progression. :)
Happy baby growing!

Loved this post. :) Amen to what you said! No, I'm not..., but great attitude. I'll keep the tomatoes and basil away... although that does sound REALLY good right now.
