10- week bumpdate

I missed week 9 last week, frankly because I felt like butt. I was in full-on self-pity mode about not feeling well, wanting to eat and really just wanting to feel human again. Right around Friday though, my wish came true! My nausea has been gone since then (knock on wood), and I've been able to function and actually shower and look like a normal person again...a normal, very bloated person. ;)



How far along: 10 weeks

Gender: We're not finding out!

Weight gain: I don't know, really. If I go by what the scale says this morning, 1.5 lbs, but I've also hit that very uncomfortable erm...constipated stage. Too much information, I know, but pregnancy isn't always all that pretty. 

Maternity clothes: None. I just feel bloated these days, so I just live in yoga pants for the most part. 

Stretch marks: No

Belly button in or out: In

Sleep: Sleep has been great! I'm still getting up 3-4 times per night to use the bathroom, but when I'm asleep, I'm dead to the world. 

Best moment this week: I'm heading to the OB for our 10-week checkup today. This will be the first my first time meeting him, so I'm equal parts nervous and excited. ALSO - my super sonic sense of smell is gone! I can finally love on Ryan again! 

Miss anything: Does pooing count? I know you don't want to know that though, so I think  I really just miss losing weight because I was on such a roll. I'll feel better when my body starts settling into actually growing a human mode in the second trimester...I think. 

Movement: Nope.

Cravings: Actually, nothing really. I had cravings for pizza and tuna last week. The last 4 days or so though, I've just felt normal - bloated, but normal. I guess maybe milk sometimes?

Food aversions: Eggs are really the only  thing I still can't do. It's something about the consistency and the smell. 

Looking forward to: I'm looking forward to not being constipated. No, really. But seriously, I'm looking forward to that, and I'm looking forward to having a bump, rather than just gas :)

  6. Ah constipation! Fun stuff, NOT! My doctor allowed me to keep taking fiber supplement caplets (i take 2 every night with my prenatal vitamin) and I mix a capfull of Miralax in my morning water bottle. It really helps keep me regulated. Ask you doctor if you can do something about the constipation because it is NOOOOOO fun!

  10. Glad you are feeling better and keeping good down. Look into a tea called smooth move. It is usually in the tea or natural foods section. It makes you go poop. ;)

  14. I'm glad you're feeling better! You're not even looking pregnant at all. You look amazing!!!!!! I love the coral shorts. You're not finding out what the baby is!?!? Holy cow! I wish I could do that when we get pregnant someday, but I have absolutely no idea if I could do that! I'm even more excited to be a new follower because now I'll get to see what you have when the baby arrives :D

  16. I was really constipated too. I started adding flax seed to my smoothies and that seemed to help a lot since you need a lot more fiber now. When I have salads I also put chia seeds on there. Both of these will help with your fiber intake!
