10 weeks!

 I know everyone and their mom (ok, maybe not their mom) does the weekly/monthly pregnancy update thing, but guess what? So am I! It's more for my records and for my family members that want to keep up (Hi Nana!) than anything. That said, it won't hurt my feelings if you don't want to read them ;-)

Here I am at 9w4d:

Here we go, my first BumpDate! YAY!


How far along: 10 weeks

Size of baby: According to thebump.com baby is the size of a prune! My friend Leslie & I decided that that wasn't a very cute for precious babe though.

Total weight gain: Somehow I've managed to lose a pound? Strange. I've definitely got a little somethin-somethin going on in the belly though (see it?)...jury's still out on whether it's actually a baby bump or just the result of the excess sleeping & eating I've been doing ;-) Either way, I'm just glad I don't have to suck in anymore!

Gender: We have about 8 weeks until we find out! I don't have a feeling one way or the other right now...I've had plenty of dreams about both.

Movement: Not that I feel, but he/she was doing all kinds of tricks for us during our ultra-sound yesterday :)

Sleep: Sleep is GOOD. And there's a lot of it going on right now. Like 9-11 hours per night. I haven't slept like that since I was a baby myself. Or maybe a teenager. 

What I miss: Nothing!

Cravings: No cravings really. I usually have no problem finding something that sounds good.

Symptoms: Exhaustion, some cramping, some queasiness. I've only had a few days that I've thrown up, so I'm very thankful for that...hopefully it stays that way.

Maternity clothes: Not yet.

Best moment this week: Oh my goodness...seeing our baby yesterday! Hearing the little heartbeat (in the 160s) was just amazing and such a relief, to be honest. Also, FINALLY getting to spill the beans! We told our immediate families when we found out a month ago, but we've been dying to tell our extended family and friends! Keeping secrets from besties is just not easy. I know most people say to wait until the first trimester is over to tell, but we figured that the more people that know, the more people that could be praying for a healthy baby. 



Thank you ladies for your sweet comments and well wishes...I'm so grateful!!
