Week 10!

Ok, so here we are in week 10! Yay, I can't believe it. This last week has been great. I'm starting to feel like myself again. I have been more active after work and on the weekends and have even thought about (it's the first step, right!?) going back to ZUMBA. I haven't actually gone back to zumba, but the thought counts! The nausea has dwindled to almost nothing, but I don't want to jinx myself because I have heard of it making a 2nd (or 3rd) appearance in pregnancy. I still get ravenously hungry at a moments notice almost to the point where I'm sick, but hey, that happened to some extent when I WASN'T pregnant! :) For the first time this week, I am starting to notice a little bulge that is not bloating. This bulge is way different. It's hard, and it feels that way even when I am hungry and sucking in. WEIRD! I don't care what people say, there is nothing more crazy than watching your own body do strange things and coming to the realization that there is something really growing inside there. We are kinda at a stopping point on talking about names for Blue (grampy's name for baby) because we just want to find out the gender!! I know, impatience, right?! We haven't even put a thought into clearing out the "nursery" and possibly purchasing some baby stuff-I'm sure it'll come over me like a wave and I'll just go crazy. But for now, we are just hanging in there, waiting to get our next ultrasound.

Oh yeah, and for the picture above, that's me and my honeybear, and let's just hope wedded bliss lasts because I think I'm already driving him crazy. He has brought me 4,392 glasses of water in the past 8 wks without even blinking! Love this man!!

How far along?: 10 weeks
How big is baby?: baby kumquat :)
Weight gain?: holding steady @ about 3 pounds
Maternity Clothes?: went to Target this weekend and bought the BeBand. Wore it and it's very comfy! Slowly finding shirts in my closet that are a no-go after this week.
Stretch Marks?: not any new ones
Sleep?: pretty good, still fall asleep kinda early every night.
Best moment this week?: I think I POPPED! It's making it so much more real.

Movement?: huh?
Food cravings?: actually have started eating a little more normal this week. still not saying no to fast food....
Aversions?: chicken is the main one. but I'm proud to say I had a pulled pork sammy this week and a bite of steak.
Gender?: I'm starting to believe there is a chance this baby could be a girl. Don't know why....
Belly button in or out?: innie
What I miss most?: zumba. unlimited caffeine. wearing perfume and burning candles/scentsy in my house.
What I'm looking forward to?: 12 wks baybee! it's so close I can touch it! (oh, and getting over the "I'm not fat, I'm pregnant" stage)
Milestones: feeling slightly back to normal and starting to exercise again. (I hope the nausea doesn't return!)

From the beginning....

Okay, so here it is. WE ARE PREGNANT! Well, I'm pregnant. Yeah, weird I know. Not sure if reality has set in. All I can say is that we are so excited!! For the juicy details - yes, we wanted to get January in fact. I know, I know, pregnant all summer. BUT this works out perfect for work and holidays. I'll get back to everyone when I'm fat and DYING of heat exhaustion and sleeping with a bag of ice. So, how did we find out? Well, for the first time ever, I suspected something. I tested way early and got a liiighhht pink line. Then the anxiety set in for the next 3 days. I couldn't convince myself the line was getting darker each day. I was sure I was imagining it since I wanted to be pregnant. So, on Friday, Feb 12, I got the BFP (big fat positive)! There was no mistaking this line, and the digital one said yes too. I waited till Andrew got home from work that day and gave him the pee stick in a cutely-wrapped Valentines box. Passing it off as early V-day candy, he opened it nonchalantly. When he saw it, he was beaming, and just hugged me. And here we are! The last few weeks have been -um- interesting. I'm never sick, so being quite sick has been hard for me.

How far along?: 9 weeks
How big is baby?: the size of a grape :) or 1 inch
Weight gain?: Yeah, I think about 2-3 lbs. but it's probably from eating only carbs...(oops). for some reason I felt it was appropriate to act like weight watchers never existed the second I found out.
Maternity Clothes?: mom bought me my first! 4 shirts from GAP that I won't wear yet. (even though I'll probably wear them before I even need to)

Stretch Marks?: I'm sure I will look super stripey by the end of this. just my luck.
Sleep?: ehh, not so great. mostly because of my deadly 8 day cold/sinus/laryngitis/nonsense I'm getting over.
Best moment this week?: getting to week 9! I'm so grateful.
Movement?: huh?

Food cravings?: breakfast. french toast. pancakes. doughnuts. anything that basically makes my butt bigger than my stomach at this point.
Aversions?: steak. chicken. seafood. pork. bleck!
Gender?: not one person has said I will have a girl. not one. let's try to prove them wrong!
Belly button in or out?: innie
What I miss most?: feeling great and energized. zumba. unlimited caffeine.
What I'm looking forward to?: April 7. I will end my first trimester and get to go to my next Dr. appt.

Milestones: our first ultrasound, and seeing the heart beating at 7wks 2dys.
