Happy 10 Weeks!

10 Weeks pregnant today! :)

I love the way the picture looks. I think I'm going to start taking them there from now on! :) The pumpkin is the PERFECT accent-- lets you know it's FALL!! :)

So, what does the picture say?

Wearing regular pants... with a belly band of course ;)

Still nauseous. Thank God for medicine. This baby lets me know when I haven't taken it! 

Toast with butter is a breakfast MUST. I get super sick in the AM and it's the only thing that calms my tummy!

Addicted to subs, cranberry juice, and Raisin Bran cereal.

33 days until we know what YOU are!

Iron pills are not my friend. I'll discuss that in a second.

Feeling great besides being nauseous part of the time.

Little to no motivation, but we push through it because we need a clean house, clean dishes, and clean clothes!

So, about the iron pills.

I didn't have to take those with Tayler, so I'm curious-- all you Mommas out there that have taken them before, have they messed up your digestive system? I've had theeee WORST stomach aches for like a week.. hard to use the potty... just feel downright miserable. I take two pills a day and I just feel like they are really screwing with my digestive system. Has this happened with any of you? I want to call and talk to them about it, but I feel like he's going to keep telling me to take them because my iron is low. I have been trying to counteract with eating Raisin Bran and other high fiber foods. Did that help anyone else? Just curious. I've never had this struggle before.

Craved some meatball subs this week! Good stuff. It was hilarious. I went to Subway because I want meatballs on their Italian Herbs and Cheese bread. I get all the way there... tell the lady I've had a craving for one of their subs and she says, 'What kind?' and I said 'MEATBALL!' and she says, 'We're out. They had a recall on the sauce.' SERIOUSLY? What are the odds of that happening?? haha! I told her I could not eat there. I get to the point where nothing else sounds good but what I'm desiring, haha! So... Crenos it was ;) It was delicious! Thankful for that :)

We have Tayler's 18 month check-up today, so I'll post some stuff about that in a little bit! I feel like I rarely write about her anymore and I don't like that! :( So, I'll definitely be updating later on about my little munchkin! She's going to be such a good big sister.

I had a dream last night that I was pregnant for a 'boy.' Inside, I don't really care if it's a boy or girl. Honestly, a girl would be easier because I saved EVERYTHING of Tayler's, haha, but I would LOVE to have a little boy and have that mother/son bonding like Tayler and I have. I know it will be different and I'm looking forward to it :) I guess in my heart, I feel like it's a little girl, but that dream felt so real--- I kind of feel like it's a boy now, haha! I'm confused. I don't know if I believe in 'mother's intuition' haha! Although, with Tayler, I thought she was a girl at first... had a dream she was a boy.. changed my mind.. and she was a girl! So, maybe I should just stick with what my instinct was as soon as I saw a positive test ;) A girl!

Alright, now for those weekly questions!

How far along? 10 weeks
Total Weight Gain? None or maybe a pound? Last time I checked I was right around the weight I started with!
Maternity Clothes? Nah! Just a belly band. They say that happens quick with your 2nd one :)
Stretch Marks? As I said last time, I'm not really sure? I had some with Tayler, but I don't see any new ones. I lather my belly in cocoa butter in hopes it will help this time!
Sleep? Good this week so far! :) 
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing double digits! We're only 14 days away from the 2nd trimester :) 
Miss Anything? When I saw Ethan crack open a beer to watch the football game Sunday, I had a twinge of 'Ooo, ice cold beer' but just a twinge! I LOVE being pregnant and I'm enjoying every single bit of it :)
Movement?  Nothing I can feel! I'm sure they are boogeying down there though ;)
Food Cravings? Meatball subs!
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? Poopy diapers! LOL
Gender: We don't know yet! 
Labor Signs? No way!
Symptoms: Nausea. Peeing constantly. Fatigue. Sore breasts!
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Weddings Rings On Or Off? On for now! :)
Happy or Moody this week? VERY happy! It's been a wonderful week :)
Looking Forward To: Hearing the heartbeat in a few weeks at our 12 week appointment! :)

Happy 10 Weeks! :) That means only 27-30 weeks until we meet our new bundle of joy! We cannot wait :)

Alyssa, ask your OB for stool softeners. I was anemic and had to take iron almost my entire pregnancy. Can we say painful. Ha. Stool softeners will really help you out.


Just found your blog and I must say, this will be a wonderful record that your baby will love when they are older. I wish I had started blogging earlier.
