10 Weeks!

Thursday, July 24, 2014

How far along? 10 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: My weight fluctuates by 5 lbs sometimes in one day or within a couple hours.  It's really weird.  It makes it hard for me to really tell if I've gained/lost any weight.  I think I may be down a pound or two at this point.
Maternity clothes: I bought a couple fun t-shirt dresses yesterday that I think will look really cute with leggings and boots as I get bigger this fall/winter. :)  I'm trying to make due with my regular clothes for as long as possible, but some of my pants are getting uncomfortable.
Best moment this week: Going shopping with a friend and buying these two adorable little baby nightgowns.  This isn't the best picture, but one of them has little turquoise turtles on it and the other is grey with cute little snaps and a pocket.  If it's not a boy we'll just save these for the next one.
Movement: They say the baby is moving now, but I can't feel it.
Waist diameter: True waist: 26 inches; At Belly Button: 28.5
Food cravings/Aversions: A lot of the same! I've been able to eat a little more meat this week which has been good and I did have one craving for a double chocolatey chip frappe from Starbucks, but I  have had an aversion to chocolate for the most part.
Labor signs: Thankfully, none.
Belly button in or out?  It's definitely too early for this question unless you were born with an outie belly button.
What I miss: NOTHING!  I'm just so grateful for this little miracle growing inside.
What I am looking forward to: Our ultrasound TOMORROW with Dr. Foulk!  I'm so excited to check on our little one.
Milestones:  10 weeks!!
Realization of the week: I'm doing the most important work of my life right now.  On Saturday morning (more like the middle of the night) I had a little bit of spotting and the doctors put me on bed rest for a couple days.  It was so hard to miss the Pound the Pavement for Parenthood race that I had been helping to plan.  I wanted so badly to be there, but it just wasn't worth risking it.  I took things easy and the spotting went away.  We just feel that everything is going to be just fine and we keep having faith that it will.
Other funny things: I'm dying over garden tomatoes right now.  It's the only thing that ALWAYS sounds good to me.  I love them cut up with a little bit of salt and pepper.  I could seriously eat like 20/day no problem. mmm...
