I feel like a slacker since I haven’t posted anything since my last bumpdate. I promise, this blog won’t be a full on pregnancy/baby blog. I still want it to be a combination of everything I love including baby, married life, books, fitness, life in general, etc. Right now though, I just don’t have a whole lot of energy, and these updates are really important to me so I find the energy for these at least! I know I will like looking back on these someday, and so will our future child! I promise to have some other, non-baby related and/or bookish posts up soon. So here we go!
Date: June 24, 2014
How far along: 10 weeks today!
The belly size: Looks bigger this week. I heard that the stomach starts poking out at week 10, not necessarily from the baby, but from other physical changes.
The baby size: A little longer than an inch and about a quarter of an ounce. Aww, widdle baby.
Weight gain: I’ll find out Friday at my appointment. I don’t really want to know lol.
Sleep: Not good. I’ve been getting up more and more to pee!
Eating: Nothing of note here, although I was craving chocolate chip cookies really bad, so I found a recipe online, Jerry and I whipped them up, and they were incredible. We both agreed… best cookies ever! Also… had to turn down hot dogs twice. Oh woe is me.
Exercising: None. 🙁 I’ve been getting light headed when walking the dogs.
Clothes: Caved in and wore maternity pants once last week. I also picked up a few more maternity items at a garage sale. I’ll probably be wearing these items more and more… pants in particular. I can probably hold off on wearing the maternity shirts for a little while longer though.
Missing: I reeeeally wanted cookie dough, but I was good and didn’t do it. You know… raw eggs and all that. I also miss energy and the ability to lift things lol. Before I got pregnant, I was doing a lot of work in my home library, lugging books and unpacking. Now, I don’t really have a lot of energy after work to unpack stuff, but I can’t even move my books around either so that’s kind of on hold until I can get some more help.
Best moment: Haven’t had any bleeding issues in about a week so we are all very relieved – phew!
Looking forward to: My appointment on Friday! Super excited to hear the heartbeat and see how the baby is measuring.
