Bump Update- 10 weeks!

How far along? 10 weeks and 1 day

Maternity clothes? My normal pants are definitely a little too tight around the waist and I can't wear some of my shirts unless they are stretchy or flowy.  I bought 2 pairs of maternity slacks for work and even though they are a little too big right now, they are much more comfortable than my normal pants!

Stretch marks? Not yet!  I am already slathering on Palmer's Oil & Lotion so hopefully that will help.

Sleep: Sleeping ok most nights.  It takes a long time to get comfortable and my husband says I move around a lot...he can never tell if I am sleeping or not.  Getting up 2-3 times to use the bathroom.
Best moment this week: Having a relaxing weekend at home with hubby.  He is usually away at a football game on the weekends but luckily A&M had an away game so we had a free weekend together at home.
Miss anything? Having energy!  No matter how much or how little I sleep, I am always tired and don't have much motivation to do anything these days.

Movement: Not yet!  Can't wait for that though :)

Food cravings: Juicy, cold fruit and macaroni & cheese!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Red Meats and the smell of seafood
Gender: Hopefully we find out at our 16 week appt!  At first we really felt like it was a boy but now I think it is a girl.  According to all the old wives tales and the Chinese calendar it will be a girl, so we will see! :)
Labor Signs: Nada

Symptoms: Heartburn, nausea, shortness of breath, sneezing ALL the time (I swear I sneeze at least 20 times a day...I read that is normal though??)

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Today it is great!! I slept about 10 hours last night and woke up not feeling nauseous.  Praise the Lord!  

Looking forward to: Our next doctor appt on Friday!!  And having another free weekend ahead with nothing to do. Whohoo!  I live for weekends like this these days.

I have been a terrible blogger lately. :(  It has been hard to find the motivation, energy or creativeness when I feel like throwing up all day every day so I have just put blogging to the side for now.   I am **hoping** that over these next few weeks I will start feeling better so I can get back into it though!  I miss reading your blogs and writing every day! 

Hope you all are doing well! xo

I swear by that Chinese gender calendar! It has been correct for everyone I have known! :) You look adorable!

The Chinese calendar told me I should have 2 girls....and I have 2 boys! I don't believe any of those things anymore! But I'm hoping you have a girl so I can buy fun girly presents for her!!

You look gorgeous! I remember being tired, too. My friend had this awful name for that blinding fatigue--when she was pregnant she was an attorney working a billion hours and she would hide and sleep under her desk like George Costanza. :)

I love the photo idea!
