How far along? 10 weeks 4 days
Total weight gain/loss: zero so far! fine with me, since I'm trying NOT to gain a ton this time. We will see for sure at my 11 week OB appointment on Monday October 25th
Maternity clothes? Yes! I dont HAVE to wear them, but they are much more comfortable right now and some of the tops I have are adorable!
Stretch marks? I only have the faded ones from my first pregnancy! Didn't get any new ones with my daughter and hope to not get any new ones this time. My big ole 8 pound 14 ounce 22 inch long baby boy ruined me lol.
Sleep: ALL I want to do right now is sleep. I am utterly exhausted and do NOT remember being this tired with my other two. Can't wait for the 1st trimester to be over and done with!
Best moment this week: Being able to eat something other than meat!
Movement: Okay so I know some people will think I am nuts, but the last few days when I first wake up in the morning and I'm laying still I SWEAR I can feel this baby moving.
Food cravings: Any and all meat and also Trader Joes Caribbean Fruit Floe Pops and Popsicle brand rootbeer and banana popsicles. Also since it's close to Halloween, Air Heads candy! lol
Gender: We don't know yet! Everyone says boy and our Intelligender test(review and giveaway coming up!) said boy! Did these work for you guys?
Labor Signs: lol I'd say no. No braxton hicks yet either.
Belly Button in or out? Still in and my belly button ring is still in too!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on. I leave mine on until the end even though I shouldn't because they get SO swollen on there.
What I miss: Having energy!
What I am looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat, feeling the baby move and finding out the gender!
Weekly Wisdom: If you already have little ones at home, don't feel guilty for not being very fun during the first trimester. I was feeling horrendously guilty until my little four year old son came up to me and said "Mom, are you feeling ok today?" It made me cry and also made me realize that they are ok, fed, bathed, clothed and taken care of. So what if they are watching a little more Nick Jr while I lay on the couch? They are still happy and healthy and love me. This first trimester will pass and I will promise to do something extra fun with them.
Milestones: Almost 11 weeks and only 2 more weeks until the first trimester is over! I can't wait!
