How far along: 10 weeks. 30 more weeks to go! Just 10 more before we know if BS is a girl or boy.
How big is baby: A little over a 1 inch-about 1 ½ inches. The size of a Kumquat. A Kumquat looks a like a teeny tiny orange, similar to the size of a prune.
Total weight gain: I only gained 2 lbs since week 4. The gain and loss I’ve been juggling with has been related to constipation and I think I’ve figured out how to combat that, finally!
Maternity Clothes: Not yet. I actually feel just fine in my clothes this week compared to last week.
Sleep: A LOT better. I sleep for about 4-5 hours before I get up to pee. I made a pregnancy body pillow myself with all the pillows we have so it’s been a lot more comfortable lately.
Best moment of the week: I’ve got some energy back! I did yard work over the weekend, and cleaned the entire house. I no longer need naps and I feel energized. Now, if my face would clear up just a tad, I’d make my way to the gym. Also, I chopped my hair. It may not look like it, but I did (a lot). I had to. Babe is robbing me of my beauty and my hair is dry and oily at the same time…how is that possible? I can barely get a brush through it no matter how much conditioner, leave in spray and product I put in it.
Food Cravings: No real cravings this week. I’m am eating low-fat cottage cheese, toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and pickles. I’ve graduated from my peanut butter puffs and almond milk, thank Goodness. I still love anything peanut butter but this week I seem to be against anything too sweet again. No ice cream, no cookies and no sweets for this girl. The thought makes me want to cringe, again. I am drinking about a half cup of coffee each morning; I’m able to stomach it again.
Food Aversions: Still whatever I was craving last week.
Symptoms: I’ve got more energy, I feel sorta like myself again.
Mood: Happy and loving life.
Movement: Nada. I do feel hunger pangs but I’m not hungry at all so it could very well be the babe moving around in there.
What I’m looking forward to: The second trimester, finding out if BS is a girl vs. boy. Halloween and Christmas. And the change in weather. We’ve had a cold front come in and it’s made life so perfect the past few days. AND…I’m hoping for good news this afternoon! Secret.
What I miss: The gym. Clear-er skin.
