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.
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 🙂
