Fun Update

I saw this on my friend, Candace's, blog and thought it was cute. She and her husband are expecting their first baby, and we are only one week apart, so it will be fun to share pregnancy stories and compare belly size (I have a feeling mine will be bigger- she is so tiny!).

So here's a little update...

Week and Day: 10 weeks, 4 days.

Belly Button In or Out: in... sort of. The top half is flat and the bottom half is in. It was a weird looking belly button to begin with, and never really returned to its state of normalcy after having Charlotte

Wedding Rings On or Off: on, but they didn't stay on the whole time with Charlotte so it's only a matter of time

Food Cravings: Little cravings here and there. Jared has been to the store a few times to pick up some things for me... fruit salad, sub from Publix deli, ice cream (which turned out to be a bad idea)

Food Aversions: Lots of things. All the food on commercials I see looks disgusting. And pretty much whatever I've just eaten, I never want to eat again.

Nausea: Pretty much ever-present, sometimes worse than others.

Energy Level: low low low, especially with the nausea meds

Weight Gain: -3 pounds! That's the nausea rearing its ugly head

Moody: Of couse not! I'm a constant array of rainbows and sunshine! (Jared may tell you otherwise though... just don't ask him)

Maternity Clothes: not yet, but I'm looking forward to having a new wardrobe!

Size of Baby: kumquat

Changes of Baby: He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy.

Next Appt: In 5 weeks, but I have to get some blood work done before then.

Other: Naptime and bedtime are my favorite times of the day!

Did I miss a "gender announcement" at some point? I saw he, he, he and thought that maybe all that yellow pollen had gone to my brain and erased my memory. Boy or girl or not knowing yet?

I didn't realize our pregnancies were so close! It's going to be fun keeping up with each other! :)
