10 Weeks


How far along: 10 weeks

How big is baby?: The size of a prune this week, about 1.5 inches.
Total weight gain: no gain so far, I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight but my body just looks different.
Maternity clothes: Nopes, but I am wearing my BeBand I bought the other day. It's this cool band that goes over my unbutton pants to help hold them up and I am loving it! It is so much more comfortable than an elastic band and/or safety pin.

Best moment of the week: Not throwing up at work at all :)

Food cravings: Chicken nuggets! And I love McD's sweet and sour sauce which is funny because I have NEVER liked it before. I also love mac and cheese... yup, I'm all for the carbs these days which could be why nothing fits.

Food aversions: Chicken, unless of course it's in nugget form, then it's fantastic. Depending on the night nothing sounds good. By dinner time I'm usually sick of food in general and just don't want to eat.

Symptoms: Still a lot of nausea, and a little puking. My waist is a little bigger, I now can't button any of my pre-pregnancy pants in my normal size. I still have my "fat pants" from 2 years ago before I lost a bunch of weight, but it's depressing to have to pull them back out.

I'm still exhausted all the time. I could sleep all day every day. Also now my abs feel... tight. Like really tight. If I poke my belly it's soft and squishy, but if I poke my abs right between my hip bones its hard and tender, so weird to think about that being our little baby!  
Movement: We're weeks away from that!

Gender: Can't know for awhile, but we're definitely going to find out.

What I'm looking forward to: The end of the first trimester in two weeks so I can (hopefully) stop feeling so sick all the time.

What I miss: I still miss feeling like myself and feeling healthy. I know the nausea is "normal" but it makes me feel like something is wrong. I also miss being able to button my pants... yeah, that's a little depressing.

Next appointment: December 29th, Merry Christmas to me :)
