Diary Of A Pregnant Gal || Week 10

Baby is the size of a Kumquat!

I am so excited to begin this journey of documenting my pregnancy each week. And I can hardly believe I'm in the double digits! I can't wait to see how my belly grows and look back on what I was experiencing. I am seriously cherishing this time and trying to remember not to rush the process and enjoy each week and the new changes it brings.

Of course the gender is unknown at this point, but I'd like to put it on the records now that I'm just absolutely positive it's a sweet baby boy. Like 99.999%. Don't ask me how or why.

Feeling | Great! This is a total 360 from the last few weeks. From my early weeks in pregnancy (before I even knew I was pregnant) up until week 9 I seriously was so exhausted I thought I'd never feel like myself again, but I hit week 9 and my energy was back. Hallelujah! This is very typical of most pregnancies. I'm also dealing with nausea from about 8am - 10am. No actual sickness, but my belly is doing flips.

Sleep | I'm out like a light when my head hits the pillow, but by 4am every morning I am wide awake tossing and turning, in and out of a light sleep until my alarm goes off. It's clockwork and it's frustrating. Not to mention I am getting up once in the middle of the night for a routine potty break.

Body Changes | No baby bump yet, just a whole lot of bloating. It can be very deceiving to think baby is making his/her first appearance and then it disappears by morning, only to come back later in the day. Although, I am noticing just behind the zipper in my jeans my lower abdomen is getting very firm so hopefully I'll start showing in the next few weeks.

Appetite | It's funny, I will be starving and order a huge meal only to eat a few bites and be stuffed. Then I turn right around and I'm starving again in 15 minutes. I have to keep snacks with me constantly because I'm eating small meals all day. The only consistent craving I've had is ice cold milk just before bed every night. The only food aversion I've had is bananas. The smell, the sight, the taste. Gross! Oh and the idea of seafood makes my stomach churn, but you can't eat that pregnant anyway.

Fun Fact | Baby is no longer considered an embryo, but a fetus! It has grown muscles which means it's making small movements already, too small to feel just yet though.

Our next ultrasound is on August 25th. I'm extremely excited about this appointment because we will be able to hear Baby's heartbeat. I tear up just thinking about it. SWOON!

  11. Yay! I'm so excited to read updates every week! I'm glad you've hit the point where your energy is back. I didn't get mine back until I hit 12 or 13 weeks with Joshua. That sluggish feeling is the worst.

    I so hope you're having a boy! I mean, a girl would be so fun too, but I have to tell you that being a boy mom is the best. :)

  15. This is such an exciting time, especially with your first!! You are SO lucky to have your energy back this early - usually it's week 12 or 13, right around the start of the 2nd tri. I *still* don't have mine back yet...fingers crossed next week!! Although perhaps with a toddler to chase around all day it's a little different... Don't worry, your bump will pop with plenty of time to enjoy it :) Enjoy wearing your regular clothes as long as possible!!!
