Baby update

I've saw this on a blog I am following and thought I would do the same each week with a follow up picture of the baby bump; however, at the moment no pictures since I don't think my belly is considered a bump yet.  Just some major bloating full of spicy food. 

How far along? 10 weeks to the day
Total weight gain/loss: Lost 3lbs.
Maternity clothes? I do own one pair of fat jeans... aka maternity jeans. They are so comfy, and work perfectly on those extra bloated days. I have three pairs of jeans I can still wear, usually with a pony tail holder looped around the button. 
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Lack of. Very tired, but sleep is not in my schedule at the moment. Usually get around 5-6 hours off and on throughout the night. I am a full-on belly sleeper, so this has been a difficult change for my body to get used to a new sleeping position. When Mike and I found out we were expecting, I had two dreams within the next two weeks where I miscarried. One was so surreal that it scared me to death. I literally woke up crying and clinching my stomach. Didn't realize it was a dream until I woke completely up. Hope that never happens again. 
Best moment this week: Saw the baby moving around on the ultrasound. 
Miss Anything? Sleep!
Movement: From the ultrasound we clearly have movement. As for me, no movement unless necessary. :) 
Food cravings: Not a fan of sweets, I will eat them but not crazy for them. Love spicy food right now, especially mexican. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Dog food. Last week someone left the door open to the office causing the aroma of dog food to seep in. First time I felt like throwing up during pregnancy. 
Have you started to show yet: Not that I am aware of. Some days I think I am, but I think it is just bloating as the next day my belly isn't as big. 
Gender: As of right now, I feel the baby is a boy. 
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Not going to lie, I've been a little moody lately. :) 
Looking forward to: The next ultrasound to make sure the baby is okay. Had a slight scare from my last ultrasound, but thankfully it's not something I should be too concerned with. 


  1. Some advice: buy a body pillow (I was a belly sleeper too before and the body pillow helped a lot with sleeping), wear normal pants as long as will HATE maternity jeans by the end, chew gum to help with smelling unfavorable things around you, and always have constant snacks available at all times (kind of like you will have to for the baby after him/her comes out :)). Enjoy this stage!

  2. Thanks Carrie for the tips! I've heard about the pregnancy pillow... I'll have to give it a try!
