Today was the first day I've woken up feeling kind of sick. I woke up at 6:15 to move my son's clothes to the dryer since I've been procrastinating about doing their laundry all week. Then went back to bed, and couldn't shake the sickly feeling. Drank a lot of water but never fell back asleep. got up around 7, felt pretty sick while I was getting dressed and managed to down some hot tea while I waited with Jonah at the bus stop. Still haven't gotten the courage to eat anything but I really should, I know I only feel more sick the longer I go without food. I may eat a pear and some oatmeal then try to go back to sleep. Still super tired! My youngest woke up but I made him go lay in my bed while I took his brother out for the bus (it's like 20 feet from my driveway). He usually falls back asleep once he's in my bed, it's just that his brother wakes him up too early and he's cranky all day if he doesn't sleep more. (4 year olds ugh!)

I'm feeling more positive today, my pants aren't buttoning very well and are not comfortable at all if I force them to button. I remember with my miscarried baby when I was 9w3d I wasn't bloating at all, I felt perfectly normal, could button everything fine so i feel better that I'm getting a little bloat or the beginnings of a small bump at least. Tomorrow I will be the exact distance in my pregnancy that I was when I found out my baby had died 3 weeks prior. I'm getting nervous, but also happy that things seem a bit different at this point.
My breasts are fuller, which is hard to explain since I'm an AA cup normally. But since I've had two breastfed kids you can imagine I got a few stretch marks on my nonexistent BBs, and they don't exactly sit perky-like. But now they're really round, more boob-shaped haha and they're filling out where the stretch marks are and probably close to a B-cup now. That didn't happen the last time around, that and the bloating have me convinced that baby is probably growing in there.
I just can't wait to see something more than a spec in a black sac! I want to see little arms and legs so badly! Keep telling myself I only have to wait until the 18th at the most and more likely only the 6th since my doctor is awesome and throws around ultrasounds like they're confetti.

Anyway, I am off to make my oatmeal and devour a pear. Hope everyone and their babies are doing well!
