How far along: 10 weeks
Baby bump: Little bitty teeny bit, right now I just look pudgy
Maternity clothes: I’m about to be there. I’m already in my regular clothes that were too big.
Total weight gain: Not sure since I’ve only been to the doc once, so I guess that means none! Who am I kidding? I’m eating all the things.
Craving: Five Guys is the only consistent thing I crave. I love cheeseburgers anyway, and my love for them is amplified right now. Thankfully Five Guys isn’t that close and I’ve only had it once. And it’s an especially good thing that there isn’t a Mugshots within 100 miles because I could really go for one of those cheeseburgers too. I went to a Mexican restaurant this weekend and ordered a cheeseburger and fries. It was delicious! Other cravings come and go quickly. We recently had friends over for pizza. I sent Brent to CFA because I had to have some cole slaw. The thought of eating pizza made me sick. I thought I was craving chicken salad, so I made enough to last me a week. I didn’t touch it after Monday. Bleh! It’s a constant guessing game as to what I can and can not eat.
Food that makes me want to vomit: Anything I think of or you mention right this very second. I hate all food (except a good cheeseburger) and at the same time I want to eat all the food. I hate breakfast foods right now. I just can’t. The food and the coffee. Can’t do that meal. I’ve been drinking chocolate milk for breakfast so I don’t go to work completely empty. Not the healthiest thing, but something is better than nothing, right?
Symptoms: See food issues above. Also, extreme thirst (always my first symptom of pregnancy way before I take a test), headaches, lack of sleep, fatigue, and just feeling like crud for most of the day.
Sleep: I take cat naps all night long. No real deep sleep is happening. Most days I can’t shake the fatigue. Taylor Swift can quit telling me to shake it off. What does she know about pregnancy fatigue? The baby’s keeping me awake, wake, wake. And I haven’t gotten very much sleep, sleep, sleep. I really just can’t shake, shake, shake, shake it off, shake it off.
Movement: None yet that I can really feel
Belly button in or out: In
What I miss: Enjoying a hot cup of coffee
Best moment: Seeing VK 3 on the ultrasound
Biggest Challenge: Carrying on with life on a couple of cat naps each night.
