Eleven Weeks Pregnant

IMG_1585
I have been a total bloggy-slacker the last few weeks. I have like six drafts saved that I’ve been working on, but honestly, this is the first time I’ve touched my computer since last Wednesday. This whole morning all day sickness thing is very new for me, and some days it takes every ounce of my energy to function at a bare minimum level, let alone do extra.

Hopefully I start feeling halfway human again in the next few weeks as Aiden heads back to school, and we get back into our usual routine.

How far along? Eleven weeks

Are you showing? Yes, and it’s getting more difficult to hide it. Still debatable to others whether I’m pregnant or just getting chubby.

Gender: We’ll find out the first week of October! Drew and Aiden want a girl, I would like a girl since we obviously already have a boy, but I’ll be happy either way!

Total weight gain: Still down from where I started.

Maternity clothes: Wore my maternity shorts the past few days. My normal shorts still fit, they’re just uncomfortable and squish my belly. 

Stretch marks: Just the pre-existing ones.

Sleeping: Not so well. But tired alllllll the time. 

Food Cravings: Lemonade, Sunny D, and Micasita. (Just the best Mexican restaurant in the world…or at least in NC. Haven’t found one in Raleigh yet that compares.)

Anything making you sick or queasy? Just oxygen. Husband thinks I seem to be getting better. Wife thinks Husband is nuts 😉

Miss Anything? Energy, Wine, and Sushi. 

Movement: I could’ve sworn I felt flutters the other night! But it’s so early that I think I imagined it. 

Labor signs: Nope!

Symptoms: Light stretching/cramps, pure exhaustion, morning (read: all dang day) sickness, soooooo emotional, and the acne of a teenager.

Belly Button in or out: Still in!

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody: Happy for the most part! But very easily brought to tears by absolutely nothing. Miss my Mommy a lot. (Typing that just made me tear up- I rest my case.)

Best moments this week: Spending the WHOLE day with Hubs on Saturday. We rarely get to do that anymore. 

Looking forward to: Morning sickness easing up, and feeling some non-imagined flutters!

Here’s a belly shot! Some of it may still be bloat, but I’m going to pretend it’s baby. Or at least uterus. preg

Ten Weeks Pregnant!

IMG_4565 2Ten weeks! We’re a quarter of the way finished! I found this weekly questionnaire thing that I’ve tweaked and made my own:

How far along? Ten weeks!

Are you showing? Yes, but I can still hide it under some loose shirts or dresses.

Gender: Don’t know yet, seven-ish more weeks!

Total weight gain: I’m DOWN five pounds. By this time with Aiden, I was up twice that much. 

Maternity clothes: Not yet. But my clothes are all uncomfortable despite LOSING weight.

Stretch marks: Just the pre-existing ones.

Sleeping: Good nights and bad nights. Crazy dreams!

Food Cravings: Lemonade still. All day errrrrrryday. 

Anything making you sick or queasy? Just food and sudden movement. 

Miss Anything? Energy and Wine.

Movement: Too Early

Labor signs: Nope!

Symptoms: Light stretching/cramps, melon-boobs, morning (read: all dang day) sickness, and the acne of a teenager.

Belly Button in or out: Still in!

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody: Happy for the most part! But very easily irritated by everything. Sorry, Husband. 

Best moments this week: Telling the world we’re expecting!

Looking forward to: Morning sickness easing up, and feeling some flutters!

I’ll post a picture of my belly when it looks a little more pregnant-belly-ish, and a little less like I’ve been indulging in Taco Bell. (Which I haven’t, just FYI. Morning sickness is preventing me from blowing up like I did with Aiden. Only good thing about it!)
