10 weeks

Oy ve!  I'm a little late with this post, but my week has not left much time for blogging.  I started my new job on Tuesday, and my evenings have been consumed with classes and lots of homework.  Needless to say, TGIF!!!

So anyways....I'd like to call your attention to a fun little fact:  we have reached double-digit weeks, people!  Yayayay!  For some unknown reason, this feels very substantial to me; its not like we're clear of first tri yet, but hey, its progress. 

Baby is now the size of a:  Plum, and weighs approximately 0.2 ounces!  Awwww  :-) 

How I'm feeling:  Ummm bloated.  I haven't weighed in for 3 weeks (because I'm scared), but I know I've gained.  I know this because today was Casual Friday in my office; i.e.:  I had to wear jeans (and maternity jeans were not an option).  My jeans were verrry uncomfy.  A few pairs wouldn't even go over my butt, a few pairs buttoned but gave me a muffin top - very sexy; alas, one pair I said, uncomfy.  

In other news, I'm still exhausted, still getting killer headaches - that I can't treat, and still having random stints of morning sickness.  Oh ya, and still not complaining  ;-)

Physical differences from last week:  Feelin thick...

What's been on my mind:  Fetal heart rate dopplers.  I really want one.  I probably won't see my OB until November (insurance reasons), and I'd just really like to be able to hear Gabe's heart beat and know that he's okay in there until then.  Those bad boys can be pretty pricey though, so we'll see if I get around to making that purchase.    

What I'm looking forward to:  Finding out the sex (I think this answer will become pretty standard until that big ultrasound). 

Random thoughts:   The Phoenix Zoo/Fisher-Price is hosting an event for expectant mommies next Saturday at 9 and 11 am.  I want to go, but I don't have anyone to go with  :-(
