My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

10 weeks and counting

Many of you have been asking here and there about how I've been feeling (as far as my pregnancy goes). And I am grateful to be able to say I've been feeling pretty good. I get a little nauseous in the evenings, I'm ravenously hungry about every two hours, I'm a little emotionally unstable (my husband might call it more than a "little"), and I'm fairly tired a lot of the time. My lunch-time naps in my car have become quite necessary. My clothes still fit for the most part, though some are getting a little tight around the waist. I imagine it will be a few months still before I need maternity clothes (though I'm dreading that in-between "I'm too big for my regular clothes but too small for maternity clothes" stage). We're both anxious to get past the first trimester (around Thanksgiving), as then I think this will all feel a little bit more real. I have my frist ultrasound on December 3, which we're both looking forward to. Then we'll let the holidays take over, and come January we'll really start to plan. Its all very exciting, and all very scary. Its going to be an adventure, that's for sure. Some have asked if I want a boy or a girl, and I have to say I've reached a place where I'd be thrilled with either. I'll do my best to keep you updated! Thanks for asking everybody!

Heidi, thanks for the update! I know that I felt better after the fourth month but mostly it only takes three. I am so happy for you guys and can't wait to meet little baby Weston!
