10 Weeks and Bumpdate

How far along:
10 Weeks
double digits!

How big is baby:
the size of a prune
Maternity Clothes:
Pants have been snug for weeks.  I haven't bought any new clothes but plan to soon
Weight Gain Alert!
Still 125lbs

The Sneak is moving around in my tummy, but I don't feel it yet.

Food Cravings:
Sweets!  I have more aversions than cravings.

Food Aversions:
Anything fried and greasy, tomato based anything, fruit juice (reflux)

8 weeks until we find out!

Fatigue, headaches, bloated, acid reflux, drooling, nausea (without vomiting), indigestion, frequent urination, increased appetite, growing belly, weepiness, mood swings, vivid and intense dreams

My tummy feels different now.  It's firmed up under my belly button and has a rounded shape.

What do I miss:
Nothing!  But I do miss being able to eat anything without it making me sick.

Best moment of the week:
Seeing The Sneak dance in my tummy and hearing his/her heartbeat for the first time.

What am I looking forward to:
Our last appointment with ART and graduating to our OB.

Seeing movement and hearing the heartbeat!

*Reaching double digits (in terms of weeks) in this pregnancy.*

"Baby is growing leaps and bounds.  Bones and cartilage are forming-and small indentations on the legs are developing into knees and ankles.  The elbows on baby's arms are already working.  Tiny buds of baby teeth are forming under the gums.  Further down, the stomach is producing digestive juices, the kidneys are producing larger quantities of urine, and, if baby is a boy, his testes are producing testosterone."
from What to Expect When You're Expecting

There's definitely a bump now!


  1. Cute bump!!
    I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. To find out more about the rules, the award and what you do check out this post blog. :)

    1. Thank you for this nomination, but I've already received this award.

  2. Congrats! Pregnancy suits you. Hope I'm as fortunate to sport the bump some day. ;)

  3. Lovely bump. Prune, huh? Well I hope it's a plum soon.

  4. Another excellent update Court! You've just made me wonder if it's possible to wait until after 12 weeks before questions start arising in the workplace. i'm small like you, so the belly bump might start become more noticeable sooner than I'd planned (yours is definitely noticeable --- and gorgeous!!)

  5. I found your page through Aspgriswold at Growing Griswolds. We are both due in May. I also had a tough time conceiving.


  6. Oh my goodness your bump is too cute!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
