We're Pregnant!!!....... Wait I'M PREGNANT :)

   After our son was born 2 1/2 years ago we decided it was best to have my tubes tied after having two incredibly difficult pregnancies. On July 11th something just didn't seem right so Nick and I decided it was best to take a pregnacy test. To our amazement it came back positive! Actually all of them did!!! Yes I said all we took 4 of them.

   The heading of this post is how I feel right now!! Now yes my amazing husband had a lot to do with the pregnancy but since I'm the only one carrying the child, gaining weight and feeling crappy ONLY I AM PREGNANT lol. Luckily the hubby completely understands! We thought it would be fun to document this pregnancy like we did the last two, only now a days I don't have the time to scrapbook like I did for them. So the hubby thought what a better way than to blog about it and make it fun! So we came up with some things I will fill out each week along with a picture from each week. Below begins the fun!!!

How far along? 10 weeks 2 days! My due date is February 15, 2015 we are hoping for a Valentines baby!! -- Easy way to get out of buying a present :)--

Total weight gain: Gained 3lbs in the past 2 weeks!  I am now 158 lbs which is actually exactly the same  weight I was when I delivered KT. :( That means I've gained a total of 7 lbs since the beginning of this pregnancy.  I'm not going to lie, the last 2 weeks have been rough getting to terms with the weight gain being that all the books, websites, forums etc. tell you that the "normal" amount of weight you should gain in the 1st trimester is up to 5lbs!  I just feel like it's piling on so fast & I'm showing so much more...does this mean I'm going to have a huge baby?!  But now I feel a lot better about it and I know every pregnancy is different - what's most important is that the baby is healthy!

Maternity clothes? I am just about there! Truly I should be in maternity pants already because the hair tie system to close them is really not working. I am still able at this time to wear my own shirts, well some of them. For now!

Stretch marks? None yet and hopefully not any I didn't get any with either other pregnancy so I'm hoping if I keep the lotion on the belly, hips, and chest I'll be all good :)

Sleep: Not great :(  I think the dreaded pregnancy insomnia has begun now that my bump is a bit bigger and it's getting more & more uncomfortable to sleep!  I had to break out my pregnancy pillow again. 

Best moment this week: None yet but thats because it's just so hot and humid nothing feels good right now

Miss anything? Not sleeping on my back!!!

Movement: No.

Food cravings: Ice cream!!! Well really root beer floats!!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat. For some reason meat doesn't sound, smell or taste good at all!!!  Looks like I will be eating veggies, fruits and yogurt for a while :)

Gender: I have a feeling it's another girl for some reason!  Don't ask why...I would be happy with either to be honest!  

Labor signs: Nope.

Symptoms: Bloating & discomfort sitting up!  Otherwise my nails are still splitting and very weak (total opposite to last pregnancy!).  

Belly button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? Off :( I never had to take my rings off with the other two.

Happy or moody most of the time: Errr a bit of both!  My emotions & hormones have been all over the place lately!  I seem to cry at the drop of a's kind of embarrassing!!

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender (hopefully in September! Right after Daddy's birthday!).  We can't wait :)
