10 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

26 August 2013

Happy 10 weeks to me!  I have my first visit with the OB tomorrow along with an early scan.  I can't wait :)

How far along? 10 weeks!
Total weight gain: 2lbs total - I lost a pound this week, most likely due to the bad morning sickness :(  As of today I weigh 117.   
Maternity clothes? Today I am not wearing anything maternity...as these jeans are super stretchy & low-waisted and were actually my best friend for a long time into my last pregnancy!  But otherwise, yes it's all about the maternity wear!
Stretch marks? No new ones - I was kindly sent a gift box of Mama Mio products from Cloud 10 Beauty last week so I have been using those.
Sleep: Sleep is still going well...no pregnancy insomnia yet thank god!
Best moment this week: Err...there really wasn't one - this week was pretty crappy symptoms wise! :/
Miss anything? Not really...a few days ago I would have said yes, I miss not feeling like I want to vomit all the time or my energy but the past two days have taken a turn for the better and I seem to be out of the woods (fingers crossed!!).  
Movement: No...but now that I know what it feels like to experience movement in my belly I am constantly analysing every twinge or little gas bubble, ha ha ha! 
Food cravings: Nachos...anything salty...savoury foods mostly!  But the odd time I do get a strong craving for fruit.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Coffee/tea is still a no-go.  Also certain smells like Jonathan's David Beckham deodorant spray make me feel like I'm going to hurl!!
Gender: I don't know!
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: The morning sickness (all-day sickness really!) and nausea was at its absolute worst this week.  It got so bad that I just ended up having to go to bed and try to sleep it off.  It felt like everytime I ate something I got this awful stomach ache where I felt uncomfortably bloated to the point where I thought I would burst.  I had tummy ache no matter what I ate and even certain smells would make me want to vomit.   The fatigue came back to bite me in the bum too!  However like I said in the past two days I seem to have gotten some of my energy back and a lot of that awful morning sickness has gone away.  I am praying it's over!!  Another thing I've noticed is that if I don't eat for a few hours I start to go completely and totally insane...I remember this soooo clearly from last time I was pregnant!  It sort of creeps up on you and all of a sudden you turn into a psycho prego monster where you feel like you will just tear down a village just to get food into you.  It's quite scary for husbands, actually.  But good thing now I know from experience to ALWAYS keep snacks in my bag!  
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody!!
Looking forward to: Hearing his/her heartbeat tomorrow...I am very anxious/nervous/excited about that.
