10 Weeks

Baby updates are back in swing!  It's kinda hard to believe I just said that.  This time around, I think things will be different.  I know what to expect during & after pregnancy.  I can also verify that being a mother has been the most amazing, blessed experience of my life & that there isn't anything to be afraid of.  

Something a little more instantly exciting?  We find out what Baby A's gender is next Friday!!  Yes, they can find out that early now!  But more on that later.  I can't lie.  A girl would be a dream this time around, as I would love to have a daughter AND a son:) (& not to mention all of the girly things boy moms drool over).  But, it's just as easy for me to imagine hunting up matching bow ties & fedoras as I add to our toy car collection for the next couple of years.  Either way, I am just so excited & ready to know!  This little planning momma is ready to get to work:)

This is Week #:  10 Weeks (I'll be 11 on Saturday!)
Total Weight Gain:  I haven't weighed lately, but last I checked maybe 1-2 lbs (I've been fluctuating & sometimes I lose 1-2 lbs within a day all depending on how I feel).
What I am wearing:  My clothes.  Everything still fits good, but I have never seen my belly more inconsistent with it's size in my life!  One minute I look 40 weeks pregnant, and the next I look like I should in the first trimester...It's really kind of scared me tbh
Favorite accessory/piece of clothing:  Button up shirts, loose enough to hide the baby bump that most would probably assume is a food bump.  Dresses are equally as cool:)
Body woes:  So.  unbelievably. tired.  It's worse this time around with a toddler.  But much more fun & entertaining:)  I laugh a lot & don't they say that's the best medicine?
Best part of week:  Such a rejuvenating week at the beach, despite the cursed first trimester slum
Feel anything in there?  Nope, nothing yet
Gives me the Creeps:  The thought of coffee, though I am beginning to occasionally have my one morning cup a day.  Seems as though random things gross me out.  It changes daily.
I miss:  My energy & night owl tendencies 
Zzzzz Pattern:  Not sleeping much lately
Gender:  Finding out next Friday;D #soexcited
Belly Button Metamorphasis:  It's already morphing back into the prego belly button
I’m Craving:  Smoothies, salads, cheese, & crackers 
Working Out Regimen:  When I first found out I was pregnant, I was working out like crazy.  But the past month,  nothing.  I worked out last Friday morning before was torture.  I've got to push myself to start back, because I know I will feel much better!
Mood (s):  Anxious & worried (Pray for me to trust God in everything & leave that mess behind)
I can’t wait for:  Friday, to find out Baby A's gender & I am soaking in the remainder of Spring Break.  Summer isn't far away:)  Lots happening, stay tuned!
