Maternity Mondays: Week 10

Monday, September 12, 2011

While we were spreading the good news of being pregnant M and I videoed many of our friends and family. It is really fun to see their reactions and to be able to remember them forever. Unfortunately some of our videos either didn't record or were bad quality but I think you will enjoy the moments we were able to capture. The song was naturally picked out by me. :)

10 weeks and 3 days! already looking like I'm farther along than that!
How far along? 10 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 1.5 lbs
Maternity clothes? not yet, just rocking the Bella Band on some pants that were tight before the baby!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleeping great, minus waking up to pee every night two or three times!
Best moment this week: seeing people who found out via facebook and hearing all their good wishes
Miss Anything? sushi
Movement: no, baby B is the size of a prune!
Food cravings: carbs always sound good.
Anything making you queasy or sick: meat and cooked veggies, but no actual sickness
Have you started to show yet: a little bump depending on what i wear
Gender prediction: i want a girl so bad i know it's gonna be a boy
Labor Signs: No (I will freak when I finally say yes to this question.. so nervous!!)
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! but i cry at stupid stuff that i never would have before! the 9/11 recaps killed me
Looking forward to: finding out the sex, feeling the baby move, and looking prego, not fat.
Yesterday Matt took me to Babies R Us to buy me a snoogle. He apparently had been reading up on them on various blogs and heard fabulous things about them and that they aid in sleep. He told me pregnant women swear by them (and they better for $70!) I thought it was the sweetest gesture ever since Matt enjoys saving money a lot more than spending it. It was my first gift! I'll have to let you know how I'm sleeping with it and if I recommend it.

PS I will never forget the look of fear and dollar signs flashing on his eyes when we walked into Babies R Us. Hilarious.
