going back to...10 weeks!

24.02.2013 - 02.03.2013

How far along? 10 weeks!

Baby Size: Baby is the size of a prune!

Total weight gain: Again, just guessing at a couple of kilos (most of which will have been the effects of stopping my neuro tablets). There is definitely a little belly now though, which is becoming harder to suck in!

Maternity clothes? Hells no – will be a while yet!

Stretch marks? Nope!

Sleep: Sleep has started being kinda crappy. I feel like I want to sleep all the time, but when I am sleeping I feel like I’m still awake…in that half doze type sleep instead of a really deep sleep.

Best moment this week: Starting to tell more friends…Auntie Sara came over for a visit and was so excited to find out! Your little friend Mia cried though…Auntie Kylie #2 is super excited and Daddy has told his friend Sean. Mark and Brendan have also told their partners, who were very excited as well! Also, finishing off your blackboard! Oh that blackboard has been a labour of love baby, but today Mummy got to decorate it for the first time!

Miss Anything? Some of my clothes (including pretty dresses!) have started to not fit due to my erm…enlarged chest! I miss some of them because some were my favourites…I also miss being able to eat poached eggs. Oh for the day I can have Eggs Benedict again! (poached eggs and ham…not risking it!)

Movement: Way too early yet!

Food cravings: Pineapple coated donuts…I’ve been wanting lots of fruit…And last night (9 weeks, 6 days) all I wanted to eat was a chicken schnitzel with dianne sauce. It HAD to have Dianne sauce! Luckily (or unluckily now that I know about it) the restaurant up the road from us does everything take away…And my GOODNESS that Dianne sauce was amazing…

Anything making you queasy or sick: Just nauseous in general. Nothing in particular making it happen!

Gender: Will be a surprise for our first little one! Daddy is convinced you are a little girl and loves the idea of calling you’re his raspberry (as Mummy is his strawberry…)

Symptoms: Week 9 was an EXHAUSTING week for me. It was like suddenly getting hit by the tiredness truck. Hopefully 10 and 11 prove to be better!

Belly Button in or out? I have a very deep in! Can’t wait to see what happens!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: TIRED!

Looking forward to: Getting to see you again at our Downs Syndrome test (usually between 11 and 14 weeks), meeting our midwife at our first appointment and hopefully get to hear your little heartbeat thumping away!
