Along with this research, I compared different symptoms that were to be expected around each week. Many women said they didn't start getting sick until week 8, which was pretty close to mine but one week earlier.
When I went to my first appointment, the doctor measured my little baby to be 2 centimeters long and can thus only possibly be...9 weeks instead of 10. One week doesn't really make much of a difference, but that one week has totally thrown me off! I couldn't keep track of how far along I was after that. I kept forgetting and I honestly couldn't figure it out for at least 2 weeks and had to sit down and count from the appointment date where I knew I was "9 weeks" and add from there. I feel so thrown off balance.
Well, now here I am in week 12 and suddenly, my sickness is GONE. My energy is BACK. I eat food again, and I want to eat food. I actually like food again! Especially peanut butter. My appetite is back and I crave things.
Now, according to my research, wasn't this not supposed to happen until week 13/14 when I am entering the 2nd trimester? This is where I get confused, and if I am wrong, somebody please help me out. I know every body is different, I know every pregnancy is different, but maybe I am further along than they thought. Does my fetus measuring 2 centimeters HAVE to mean it is at 9 weeks instead of 10? Maybe my body just didn't want to be sick for very long and now I am feeling great before the 2nd trimester even starts. I don't know. Like I said, somebody help me out if I have it wrong here.
In other fun words, I am going to the State Fair today with my mum and my sibs, but I totally slept in today and that means I only have ... 1 1/2 hours to clean the house, change the sheets, fold laundry, do the dishes, at least start my homework, and balance the checkbook/make our menu for next week before I have to shower and go. Wish me luck and have a fun Saturday!!
