10 weeks

How Far Along: 10 weeks
How Big is Baby? The size of a prune.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down about 8 pounds. 
Maternity Clothes: Yes, please! I have a couple pairs of maternity jeans, but otherwise it is yoga pants for me. Tops still fit fine- I bought one maternity shirt on clearance the other day, but I don't need it yet. 
Gender: I cannot wait to find out!
Movement: Nothing yet, I can't wait to feel these little babes squirming!
Sleep: I'm still crazy tired. Lately I've been waking up around 3 or 4 in the morning and laying there for an hour or so-- which only adds to the exhaustion later in the day!
Belly button in or out? In.
What I miss: Life before heartburn.
Milestones: Making it to ten weeks without a single complication seems like a pretty big milestone!
Food Cravings:  Pizza! It was soooo good, and followed by many, many Tums! Totally worth it :)
Aversions: Eggs mostly.
Symptoms: Pretty much the same as last week... nausea if I let myself get too hungry, fatigue, constipation, sore nipples and a healthy dose of heartburn after eating pretty much anything.
Best Moment this week: Seeing the babies again on Friday and graduations from our RE's office!
Funny Moment (new this week): Last night we were watching TV and a commercial came on for World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It first showed this beautiful tiger that I was gushing over and then it showed a trap and machinery leveling the land where these animals live. Cue the tears. Then, only to make matters worse, it shows her babies.... which just so happen to be super cute twin cubs. I say something to the effect of 'That mama has twins too' and by this point my face is wet and both my husband and I are laughing hysterically at my inability to contain my emotions. 
What I'm looking forward to: My first OB appointment tomorrow and finding out when we'll get to see our babies again!

I have heartburn ALL THE TIME! And, if I get hungry, I get heartburn and then I get nauseated AND I'M 35 WEEKS! My first pregnancy was smooth sailing, rainbows, butterflies, and easy. I have been sick almost every day with this girl! But, she is so worth it! I'm happy for you. I hope your symptoms go away after a while but then you just worry something is wrong.

Yay for 10 weeks complication free!
