Pregnancy diaries || Week 8 & 9 - Telling my family

Week 8

We told my family this week about the pregnancy. They are over the moon, Mum cried, as this will be her first grandchild. My brother's girlfriend had her suspicions confirmed (after she saw me gag on the Taranaki hike), while my brother was sitting there confused as to what all the commotion was about and I think my Dad was actually taken by surprise for once too.

I felt really good over the weekend as I was eating all of Mum's healthy and delicious food, so apart from the usual morning water spew session I didn't have any issues. I even went for a bike ride into town. We made sure to buy blueberries and raspberries as they are the size of baby this week and are also a delicious side with dessert.

Week 9

I feel like I am somewhat getting the hang of this morning sickness thing. At least now I know what to expect every morning and can prepare for it. I have completely gone off my usual favourite foods, such as chocolate, and anything sugary now holds no appeal, which is completely out of character for me. I also flip flop on whether I want to eat eggs or not. I few weeks ago I was eating them every day, this week I have no interest. My life now revolves around which food I want and whether it will make me sick or not. As some foods are worse to throw up and others, that's how most of my decisions are made these days.
