Hello everyone! I had a pretty good week and a half. After the 4th of July I spent the whole weekend in my little Bat Cave living room feeling awful. I watched several seasons of Boy Meets World and slept. A lot. Nothing sounded good to eat, and I settled many nights for vegetable soup. Then, like magic, Monday morning I felt great! I haven't been sick, had much more energy, and have actually been wanting to eat food. I was actually a bit worried that everything seemed to take a break so fast, but the top part of me is still growing and painful, I have been a bit tired still throughout the day, and I may or may not have cried throughout 80% of the latest Boy Meets World episodes (life lessons, people, they get me every time!). I asked one of my doctor friends and she said it was completely normal and not to worry, so I am relaxing until my appointment next week.
Turf had a job interview on Saturday for a position in San Antonio so we are anxiously awaiting news on that! We will keep everyone updated.
My goal is to post every 2 weeks. It doesn't look like much now, but I am excited to watch the belly start to grow (disclosure: I was totally sucking in for all I am worth in order to not have a pudge. It's totally there, but definitely not baby yet!). Anyway, I won't be posting these on Facebook, just on the blog so you'll have to check back in here to keep up!
Happy Monday Friends!
How far along? 10 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: None
Maternity clothes? Nope! Although I am enjoying scouring Pinterest for outfit inspiration. Hello Fall/Winter baby belly!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Aside from some really vivid, kind of creepy dreams, I've been sleeping well.
Best moment this week: Making my "Japanese" baby board. I was too lazy to hunt down chalkboard/chalkboard paint, so this little beauty is made up of a piece of black dry erase board, colorful dry erase markers, and a classy plastic frame all courtesy of the 100 yen store. SCORE!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Hot dogs.
Food cravings: Sweets! Brownies, gooey chocolate, cookies, cheesecake. Yum! Don't worry, I haven't eaten MOST of that ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick: I am happy to say I have had NO sickness for the last week and a half.
Have you started to show yet: No, but the bottom of my already round belly is starting to round out more.
Gender prediction: I am certain it's a girl. I just have a feeling!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy this week because I have been feeling MUCH better!
Looking forward to: Starting to actually look pregnant.
