10 Weeks

Well I keep inching closer and closer to the "safe zone". I have an appointment in a little over a week, woop woop! I hope I get another ultrasound or something. I still get nervous that I won't hear a heartbeat. It's crazy, but I always think somethings wrong with me when I don't have a lot of symptoms. I have to keep telling myself that I have to trust God, and that every woman is different when pregnant. Here's my 10 week information:

How far along: 10 weeks 3 days

Total weight gain: 0 pounds! Pretty sure I have lost 3-5lbs somewhere. I need to buy new bras. Seriously...I'll be in a size "Z" by the time this kid gets here.

Size and growth of the baby: Apparently it's the size of a kumquat. Yeah go ahead...I giggled when I heard that word too. I remember it being a "dirty" word we called people in junior high. Apparently its a fruit, good to know.

Sex: Too soon to tell, but everyone I know wants me to have a boy. Lots of people say its a boy because I haven't been sick really.

Maternity clothes: None yet although my mom and I went to the maternity stores to look at stuff. I have a few shirts, and a dress that I can wear eventually. I still live in my fat comfy pants, but that's been normal for years haha. Oh and bras must be purchased soon.

Sleep: I get exhausted throughout the day and am usually asleep by 9 or 10 at night. However I am now getting up to pee at random times in the night.

Best moment(s) of the week: Reaching the 10 week mark problem free!

Movement: To soon to feel anything yet which BLOWS

Food cravings/aversions: Caesar salad=YUMMY in my tummy! Chicken smell=Gross! I don't have a big appetite, and have to tell myself to eat. I stare at my food, and then slowly eat it.

Morning sickness: Not bad at all. I sometimes feel queasy, but it doesn't last long. Usually I just need to eat something, or take a Tums.

Symptoms: Freaking tired all the time. A few headaches here and there. If my stomach is empty it lets me know, and makes me eat!

Labor signs: Uhm...non existent. My doors are staying closed for a while.

Belly button in or out: In..big time. It's like a cave!

What I miss: I fall asleep better, but I don't stay asleep. I toss and turn a lot, and I HATE sleeping on my sides and back only.

What I'm looking forward to: Being out of the first trimester in a few weeks. I'm ready for my appointment on the 17th!

I officially have my first craving! Drumroll....................................................................................................
Caesar Salad! I noticed that every time I go to a restaurant that is the one thing I order with anything. In New Orleans I would get gumbo, and randomly order a caesar salad everyday. I give myself some credit for having a healthy craving. Yes, I think caesar salad dressing is healthy. I'm totally going to get some salad dressing from olive garden soon. It's only $5!

Funny story
For once I was on my way to work super early, and realized I had no gas to get there. I stopped at the gas station by Ben Geren, and when I got out the car I immediately smelled convenient store greasy chicken and gasoline. I had to go inside and dry heave for about 3 minutes. During the wonderful moment hanging over the toliet, I sneezed....and peed myself. *SIGH* I ran out of there, and went straight home to change. How embarassing right!? I have serious smell issues with chicken. If I'm near it, I'll eat it and its all good. I just can't stand the thought of it, and especially nasty convenient store chicken. That's really the only food issue I have thank goodness.

Kyle and I went to New Orleans this week....CAJUN FOOD IS INCREDIBLE!!! New Orleans is lame, but the food...oh my gosh.................YUM!!! I could eat gumbo and any kind of etoufee alllllll day!

Ok bye...gotta go to a 2 year olds birthday party


  1. Oh my gosh, if you DO have a boy... Your boy and Melissa's girl could play together.. And who knows, maybe you'd marry them off one day!! =D Yeah, my mind goes there. Lol! So glad you're doing well and not nauseous all the time. =)

  2. You aren't supposed to have Cesar salad because of the raw egg they use in the dressing :(
    I hated chicken too. It has gotten better but in general- YUCK!
