Week 10

Originally written 10/25:

My friends were in town over the weekend and despite being exhausted (both during their visit and especially after) we had a great time.  I wasn't the party-pooper I was worried I'd be, I stuck it out both nights, staying up until at least 12 both nights!  I still got to enjoy great meals and lots of laughs and stories and it was great.

Other than that, not a lot has changed this week.  I'm seriously starting to show so I'll need to come clean soon.  I need to tell my family before I tell more people at work because I work with someone related to me.  So if he hears at work, there's a chance he'll tell our relatives before I do, just because he won't know not to.

Still feeling ill a lot, but I think it's getting slightly better.  I bought some bigger bra sizes and that seems to help a little.  I think if I could just quit wearing a bra for the next 4 weeks, I'd probably be great.  I'm also avoiding things like tomato sauces and spicy things since they seem to aggravate my stomach.

How far along?:  10 weeks
Total weight gain/loss:  I'll find out for sure on Friday but I hope it's just not more than 3-4 lbs.  I'd really like to keep things under control.
The Bump:  It feels bigger to me this week but I'm jaded.  Who knows what it looks like to an outsider.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  Seeing the doctor on Friday and hearing the heartbeat.
Maternity Clothes:  Just bigger bras so far.  Definitely wearing looser pants lately.
Symptoms: Nausea (which is really more like acid reflux) and exhaustion.  Craving sleep like no other.
Belly Button in or out?:  In. I don't see this changing.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Craving Mexican, buffalo anything, and CARBS.  We ate out over the weekend and I kept asking people for bread baskets which I could never get.  Aversions are nothing and anything.  Just depends on the moment.
What I miss:  Having energy and not feeling ill.
Milestones:  Baby is the size of a lime this week!  I am just so excited to see the doctor!
