9 Weeks 2 Days

How far along? 9 weeks 2 days
Weight gain/loss: Not sure, but last I checked I was 125, so up a few pounds.
Wardrobe? I happily sport maternity pants/shirts whenever I want. They are cozy and add to my meager wardrobe, what can I say? On days that my tummy is especially upset, they are loose enough that I feel like I'm in pajamas, but I'm not and few people in my classes know that I'm actually wearing maternity clothes. I still wear my regular clothes comfortably. Right now I'm not sporting maternity clothing. I'm wearing a purple long sleeve tee and jeans. I'm wearing larger bras now - that's the main difference in sizes. Unfortunately the 34B I bought is still a tad large, but I did find a roomy 34A that was in my drawers that fits nicely. :) I knew I saved it for something!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep? I have strange, vivid dreams and I often wake up when I roll on a sore, swollen boob. I've been going to bed early to avoid nausea, so I've been getting plenty of rest.
Best Anna/Baby moment this week? Anna is insistent that it's a girl baby. When she asks if it's a boy or a girl and I say that I don't know, she says, "No, it's a girl baby!" What will she say if it's a boy?
Gender: Most days I think it's a boy, but I honestly don't feel like I did last pregnancy when I was sure from day 1 (before day 1 to be truthful) that I was having a girl.
Belly button in or out? In. It never went out with Anna, but it got pretty flat.
Movement? Twinges, but nothing I could call quickening quite yet. I first felt quickening at 15 weeks with Anna, so I wonder if it'll be earlier with this one.
Nausea: It's much better than when I was pregnant with Anna, but I do have bad days and good days. I'm taking B6 (50 mg/day) and wearing Sea Bands every day to ward off nausea. So far I think it's working. I mean, things aren't worse and I'm not going to stop for fear that it'll come back again with a vengeance.
What I miss? Energy and the ability to stay awake past 9:00 PM.
