10 weeks

How far along? 10 weeks today :)

Symptoms: nausea and exhaustion (I seriously am asleep, right along with the kiddos, every night by 8:30pm at the latest!)

Weight gain/loss: 0 lbs

Gender: too early to tell, but we aren't finding out anyway!!!!!!!!!! Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!

Maternity clothes? not yet, although I'm not gonna lie, I wouldn't mind! :) Even though I haven't gained any weight yet, my stomach has definitely "bloated out" much quicker than with my first two, so some nice stretchy jeans would be nice! ;)

Sleep: Go to bed around 8:30-ish and then I'll randomly wake up around 3am with every possible thought known to man running through my head, and sometimes it takes a good hour before I can fall back asleep! :(

Food cravings/aversions: no craving, but as for aversions, pretty much EVERYTHING! I can eat something one day and then the next day even the thought of it could make me vomit!
Movement? I know they say it's too early, but I swear I feel something! :)

What I miss: a full nights sleep, having energy, and not being nauseous but I know, this too shall pass! :)

Best moment(s) this week: getting to see my sweet baby on the ultrasound in 3D! Oh, and making him/her Facebook and blog "official" ;)

What I'm looking forward to: getting my energy back

Next appointment: March 6th

Milestones: a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature.

He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy.

During the first trimester I would sleep 12-14 hours each night! I miss that soooo bad, ha ha! Even though Mia is a great sleeper, I miss sleeping through the night without waking up. But the third trimester got me used to that... I woke up all. through. the night. Ugh!
A surprise... ah! The suspense will kill me! I don't know how you're going to do it, ha ha!
