7 to 9 weeks - More of the same

I wrote this post on February 18, 2013.

The blog has been silent for most of the month of February, and there are two reasons for it. One is that I started a new job at seven weeks pregnant. All of a sudden, I have a lot less free time on my hands than I did during unemployment. But it is also the nature of the job - I sit and stare at the computer screen for over eight hours in a row, and the last thing I want to do when I get home is more of the same thing. The eye strain is incredible.

The other reason for my radio silence is the effect of pregnancy. I've actually learned how to function with nausea (more or less), but the fatigue is inescapable. When I get home from work, all I want to do is take a nap on the couch. I've even been going to bed at some geriatric hour of the evening, which is highly unusual for a night owl like me.

I know you won't read this blog post until at least the second half of March, but I hope that when you do, you will understand and forgive my temporary absence from the blog.

Here I am at nine weeks:

9 weeks

Still no obvious baby belly, but that's partially due to my strategic choice of clothing. :) I even went shopping specifically for tops that could be worn by the non-pregnant me now and in the future, but could also work in these early stages of pregnancy. And that cardigan that doesn't close in the front - I plan to wear it for the entire nine months! Talk about a good investment.


  1. I hope you are feeling less tired now.... it seems to be a very common symptom feeling of having a cold and being exhausted.
    And... I know all about being tired after looking at the screen the whole day, I used to have that at my job.
    Take care :)And I hope that the process is enjoyable at least to some exent (the excitement of knowing the growing process and experiencing the changes in your body and all of that )

    1. Thanks! This post was written during the first trimester, and I have to be frank - the first trimester was tough on me. But! Now I am in the second trimester and feeling much better all around. I may have even felt the baby move last night (thought it may have been gas, haha, it's hard to tell)! Definitely some exciting things happening these days.
