10 weeks (baby #2)




How far along: 10 Weeks! YAY for double digits!!
Maternity clothes: No, I made a vow not to get my old box of maternity clothes down until the second trimester...!
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: It really is quite embarrassing how early I go to bed...
Best moment of the week: Not pregnancy related, but this week Harper pooped in the potty for the first time!
Worst moment of the week: Everyone at my job is on to me. While I understand their harmless curiosity as to if I'm pregnant, I also think we should respect a woman in her decision to tell people she's pregnant when she's ready. I work in labor and delivery for goodness sake, we all know that most women prefer to wait until the second trimester to tell people. It's also surprising to me how many people seemed to be interested in my reproductive system.  Maybe it would help if I reminded them that our first journey down this road was long, and hard, and painful. Or perhaps if I told them that this go around wasn't a walk in the park either, and we spent four months crying over yet another failed cycle. Or that trying for baby number 2, and getting negative pregnancy tests after negative pregnancy test brought back all those painful memories of infertility and I found myself crying myself to sleep most nights. So yes, while their inquisitions are innocent, I think we all should be a bit more cognitive of what that question might do deep down to a woman.
Running/Workouts: Running feels good - 5 weeks until my half marathon, which is terrifying!
Missing anything: Skinny jeans
Movement: No
Things that make me queasy: Same things - but lately I've really been into fruit, oranges and orange juice!
Energy level: I'm feeling pretty good...by 8pm I'm ready for bed, but during the day I feel a little better.
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Impatient  - come on 12 weeks!
Looking forward to: Taking pictures this week to announce our pregnancy!!!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: I have been able to find this little babes heartbeat with my home doppler since about 7-8 weeks. It was really difficult at first, but lately I can find it almost instantly! That heartbeat is music to my ears!
