Every day I ask Greg, “Can you see it!?” and every day he answers, “I can see you are sticking it out…” And then he proceeds to try to straighten out my spine which then makes me feel like an ape woman.
How far along? 10 weeks
Weight Gained: 3 lbs.We got a scale! Greg insists it doesn’t give an accurate reading, bless his soul.
Symptoms: Ummmm acne. Fun. Oooo and! I can actually make it through the day without a nap : ) Go me.
Movement: It’s probably nothing since they say you probably won’t start feeling baby till 16 weeks, but last night, just as I was drifting off to asleep, I had my hand resting on my stomach and definitely felt something I’ve never felt before (and believe me, I am familiar with tummy movements. I am a still a Welty). I woke Greg up and told him I felt a TWIRL!! And then I proceeded to feel several more little happenings for a little while after. It was positively magical, so just give me this one and don’t tell me it was just air bubbles ; )
Food cravings: Gummy bears. I’d been talking about my desire to just have a gummy bear for the longest time but every time I went to the store, I couldn’t find them! So the other night when we were coming back from our friends house, we stopped at the gas station and Greg got out to fill er up and when he came back in, he had my bow tie wearing friends in hand! And the people rejoiced.
Food aversions: Not really.
Sleep: I had a very real dream that I miscarried and woke up so sad. It was a boy in the dream. Is this telling?? I’m still convinced it’s a girl : ) Other than that one time, I’ve been sleeping pretty well!
Stretch marks? No
Belly button in or out? In
Miss anything? Drinking liquids without feeling guilty : ) Doctor said I can’t have coffee, juice, milk, smoothies, soda or basically anything remotely fun. That leaves water. I’ve been disobeying.
Mood? I was wondering when the irrational angry mood would kick in. We got a dose of that one last weekend but overall, been pretty happy : )
Maternity Clothes? My “fitted” shirts are feeling a bit too sausage casing for me these days :/
New baby items: Still doing my research : ) Babies are awfully fun to research.
Exercise: I did it! I did 5 days a week last week! So. Stinkin. Proud. Now for this week…
Best moment of the week: Probably finding this in each one of my kitchen drawers <3
And whatever I felt last night at the very least made me so very excited to start feeling movement on a regular basis! I couldn’t stop smiling : )
Looking forward to: More baby moving!! Aaaaand Greg actually believing that I am not in fact walking around pushing my stomach out all the time.
