Double Digits!

How far along: 10 weeks

Size of baby: kumquat

Physical symptoms: The nausea is getting better every day.  I'm still hungry a lot, but I know that is mainly my own fault.  I need to be better about eating before I get hungry because I'm starting to feel like I'm not getting enough nutrients, and that makes me nervous.  I just want my baby to be healthy!

Weight gain/loss: Still up about 3 lbs from the beginning of our IVF cycle.

Maternity clothes: Just pants.  They are still big on me, and I notice that they get pretty baggy by the end of the day...but they are better than my unbuttoned regular pants.

Stretch marks: Still just on my boobies.

Sleep: I don't get up as much throughout the night to pee, so I sleep better.  Although I have vivid, freaky dreams every night.

Best moment since last week: I finally am getting the hang of my new job, and it feels great to be busy during the day (and I will have extra money for baby stuff!)

Movement: Way too early.

Cravings/Aversions:  Still no major cravings.  Chicken is still a problem.  For some reason, I am fine if I eat it at a restaurant, but grossed out eating homemade chicken.  Weird.

Gender: Too early to tell.

Labor signs: Way too early!

Belly button:  Innie

What I miss:  Sleeping without dreams...I have some weird-ass dreams every night!

What I am looking forward to:  Our first OB appointment next week!


  1. Yes to the weird-ass dreams! I've been going through phases... Congrats on double digits!!!

    1. I have no idea where my subconscious comes up with the crap I dream about lol

  2. I know what you mean about the homemade chicken thing! Im with you! And oh my word the dreams!
