10 Weeks

Man it seems like I've been pregnant longer than that, but apparently I had a positive test after I'd been pregnant, oh, about 30 seconds. But anyway, here I am at 10 weeks. One fourth down, 3/4 to go!

Wt gain/loss: -2 lbs (up 2 lbs from 2 weeks ago though)

S/S: nausea, vomiting although I've not prayed to the porcelain god for the last 2 days, exhaustion, urinary frequency, constipation (Sorry, TMI) and extreme mood swings.

Cravings: Wendy's Frostys, Dairy Queen's Tag-a-long blizzard, rosemary and olive oil Triscuits

Aversions: Diet Coke :( and odors. I have been on this huge kick to rid my house of stink. Apparently I did this with my 3rd pregnancy, but I don't really remember it being this bad. I have thoroughly cleaned the kitchen and back porch and I just bought 8 Snuggle air fresheners for the house. Now the house smells Snuggle Fresh instead of old house musty! I guess it's good that Diet colas upset my stomach because I don't need them, but I don't drink coffee and could really use the caffeine in the morning!

Running: still going strong, with my last 5K race this pregnancy on Saturday. Averaging a 3+ mile run 3-4 days a weeks, depending on weather. I have had to stop and walk now and then when I run, depending on how warm/humid it's been

Not that there is anything really to see yet, but here's another belly shot. I put up the very first one I took, which really was probably only at 5 weeks, just for comparison. So far, my pants still fit fine, just a wee bit tighter.

About 5 weeks:

10 Weeks:

I did have these lined up next to each other fore a better comparison, but for some reason when i published it, it didn't line up right. Oh well. I never claimed to be a computer pro.
I can't see any difference, but I can definitely feel a difference! Maybe just a tad rounder lower now, but I don't know, it could just be my posture. In due time, though, in due time! I remember with Isaiah, by 12 weeks, I had to start using the rubberband trick to be comfortable. This time, I think I'm going to get a BellaBand. I've never used one before but it looks like it might work.

For me, the Bellaband was indispensible, particularly for drawstring-waist scrub pants, which would otherwise have fallen down.

10 weeks is exciting. I'm glad your pregnancy is going well!

Ginger Ale really helped calm my stomach down. Not sure if it has caffeine in it or not, though.

And I totally agree about smells. EVERYTHING stinks to me. I have been cleaning and cleaning my house. I am constantly sniffing around and telling my husband things stink and he can't smell a darn thing.

I love your lists! I craved green slushies from the gas stations... at least until Sonic moved to town!

I am so envious of your pregnancy... I would love so much to be in your shoes... but don't have the courage to risk it. God bless you for loving and embracing this special time in your life!
