How far along? 10 Weeks!
Weight gain/loss: +8lbs
Maternity clothes? I added a pair of maternity jeans to my wardrobe. Pretty comfy;)
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep? I fell asleep about 8:30 the past two night and it was awesome! I slept good and woke up early without feeling tired!
Best moment this week? I got my home doppler yesterday and was able to hear the heartbeat!! It was amazing:) It took me awhile to find it each time but I did. It was in the high 170's:) And we told everyone I was pregnant. My work now knows and we put it on facebook. Anybody that knows me, knows that I am a HUGE Lucille Ball fan:) so I put the part of the I love lucy show where lucy tells ricky that she is expecting on fb for people to figure it out. Most got the hint lol
Food cravings: still enjoying some chef boy rd ravioli. lol
Gender: I think it is a girl, DH doesn't say what he thinks it is.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? Wine. Especially when I go to an italian restaurant!
What I'm looking forward to: Going out with friends tonight and not having to hide my pregnancy from some people.
Milestones: Hearing baby's heartbeat!
Baby this week:
Your baby has finally morphed from a little tadpole into, well, a baby. Not only is the face more human-like, but that unflattering "tail" (really just the developing spinal cord) has disappeared, fusing into the spinal column.
Your baby now has discernible fingers and toes, which will explain the steady stream of kicks and punches you'll feel down the line.
Junior's skeleton is starting to grow and harden. The ears are beginning to take shape and the eyelids are no longer transparent. Tooth buds are forming, although your baby won't get any teeth until six or seven (or eight or nine or 10) months after birth.
Baby's brain will make an incredible 25,000 new neurons every minute this week. While you may feel like you're losing as many as he's gaining, we can assure you it's not permanent. "Pregnancy brain," like nausea and bloating, is a temporary symptom that soon shall pass.
If you're baby is a boy, he's started producing that macho hormone testosterone. And whether your baby is a boy or a girl, the kidneys are creating copious amounts of urine.
Baby weighs only 4 grams and measures 1½ inches, about the size of a mondo Brazil nut.
