10 Weeks

Well, there it is. More of the bloat that I'm living with. It fluctuates every day and throughout the day, so some days it's bigger than others. I can't suck it in anymore at all. Friday night when I got home, I looked about 5 months pregnant! Nice! I can't wait until it goes down and then turns into an actual baby bump. :-) As I get bigger, I'll have Joseph take real pictures of me so it looks better. For now, this will suffice!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 10 Weeks! Double digits already, wow!
Size of baby: Prune, about 1.5 in. long.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still haven't weighed, but I would guess a few pounds.
Maternity Clothes: I'm thinking that may be coming in the next few weeks. Today, I am wearing my Be Band with my black dress pants because there is no way they will button. I'm in need of more low-rise pants and jeans that I can wear until I'm ready for maternity clothes. All of my dress pants for work are not the kind you can rig with a ponytail holder...and the Be Band isn't the most comfortable thing in the world.
Gender: Your guess is as good as mine!
Movement: Too early for that.
Food Cravings: Still don't really have any specific cravings. I just eat what I can stomach.....literally! I'm still liking carbs, and do NOT like things that are real flavorful or rich.(pastas with heavy sauces, real herby chicken, not into meat much, etc.) My husband has been so sweet and will go out and get us something for dinner on a Saturday or something, then by the time the food is in front of me I am repulsed by it. I feel so bad about it, but he is so sweet and never complains. I am liking fruit and yogurt, well as lots of water, and the occasional Sprite.
What I miss: Good sleep and not being nauseous on and off all day.
Sleep: Well, last night I woke up in the same position I fell asleep in(meaning I didn't move)!! But I also didn't go to sleep until after midnight...I was watching a movie. Bad, I know. I'm still having some of the problems I've been having, and it doesn't help that my husband has been snoring bad the last few nights. :-) Sorry babe.
Symptoms: Fatigue, nausea (especially when I get too hungry, which happens a lot faster now), I have random "close-calls" where I will dry heave and gag (hot, I know). It just happens when I least expect it...driving in the car, fixing my hair, putting on my makeup, sitting on the couch...yeah....lovely; I'm also moody and irritable, taking frequent trips to the bathroom, have a bloated belly that starts out pretty small in the morning, and pretty big (as in I look like I'm 5 months pregnant) at night, and food aversions!
Best Moment this week: Getting to spend time with our friends Friday at the Greek Festival. It was the first time we'd seen them since we made our announcement and they are so excited for us!!! Catherine got the baby his/her first stuffed elephant. It's so cute and precious, and so soft too!! Thanks a bunch Catherine!!!
What I am looking forward to: Getting closer to the second trimester...only a couple weeks left...crazy! I have an appointment Thursday. It's just a regular monthly appointment, but I'm hoping that we'll listen to the heartbeat with the doppler. I'm dying to hear it!!

Y'all have a wonderful week!! Oh, and ROLL TIDE!! :-)


  1. You are going to absolutely wet your pets when you see the onesie I found online for the baby. I did some searching to see if they made this and they do! It's hilarious!

  2. Uh oh!! Should I be worried? Just kidding! ;-)


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
