11 Weeks Pregnant


  How far along: 11 Weeks

Total weight gain: No additional weight this week, still 1 lb total.

Maternity clothes: I bought a pair of H&M Mama jeans last week and a few new shirts… I’m pretty happy with the new purchases!

Stretch marks: Not if I can help it!

Sleep: More insomnia this week, but I did finish two entertaining chick lit books: Life & Other Near Death Experiences and Eight Hundred Grapes – As a side, I can’t tell you the last time I read a book in two days… pretty much never. But you’d be surprised what 4 hours in the middle of the night will do for ya!

Best moment of this week: Charlie’s swim class was a blast this week! It was so sweet seeing her splash around. Also, I finally told my cousin, Aunt, Uncle and friends that I’m pregnant! I don’t know why I waited so long!

Miss anything: I’ve had the worst headache for the past two days. So maybe a healthy head? Also, my severe heartburn restricts any and all coffee intake (even decaf)… I miss my morning coffee.

Movement: None!

Food cravings: I could go for an ice cream sundae.

Anything making you queasy or sick: My headache.

Have you started to show yet: Giant bump.

Gender: Ugh who knows! haha Maybe a girl? Or is it a boy???

Labor signs: No, no.

Belly button in or out: Very deeply in.

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: I think I’ve been generally happy this week… except for today. Ugh. My parents (mainly my father) was an ass today. Imagine screaming argument level. So fun.

Looking forward to: My cousin is coming tomorrow!! We have such a fun weekend planned and I just love her to pieces. I’m really happy to see her. Plus C has her 15 month check up tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing her growth progress.

10 Weeks Pregnant


  How far along: 10 Weeks

Total weight gain: 1 lb… I definitely blame this 1″ baby… not the excessive carbs I’ve been downing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Maternity clothes: H&M Mama leggings have my heart.

Stretch marks: I’ve been lotioning!

Sleep: UGH! PREGNANCY INSOMNIA, I HATE YOU! Seriously, the struggle is real. Every few days, I wake up at 12, 1, 2 am and am awake for literally 3-4 hours. It’s horrible. I’m so tired anyway and then add that… ugh. Plus side, I’ve been reading a lot.

Best moment of this week: Our first doc visit!!!!!! YAY!! Baby is healthy and heart is beating! First relief milestone hit!

Miss anything: Sleep! I feel like I dread going to sleep.

Movement: I don’t think so. But I swear, sometimes these gas bubbles really throw me.

Food cravings: I really love cake.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I switched prenatals and that’s REALLY been helping!

Have you started to show yet: Ummm YES. It’s hard to hide this beast of a bump!

Gender: I’m back to thinking girl!

Labor signs: No, no.

Belly button in or out: Very deeply in.

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy??? Mark?

Looking forward to: My cousin is coming next week!!
