Baby Sparks #2 Bumpdate || 9 & 10 Weeks


Due to a sick baby and mommy, rainy weather, and just feeling all around exhausted, I never got around to taking my weekly bump picture or finishing my bumpdate last week. I decided it would be easier to just combine weeks 9 and 10 here for one big update.
How far along: 10 Weeks, 4 days

Due Date: March 10, 2018

Baby is the size of:
at 9 weeks: A southern Pecan! Baby is now considered a "fetus" instead of an embryo and is developing more distinct facial features

at 10 weeks: A Tart Kumquat! Baby is developing features such as hair, teeth buds, elbows, and other joints that bend.

Gender: Last week I had a strong feeling that this little babe is a boy, but this week I'm starting to hop back on the fence. Either way, I scheduled our "sneak peek" ultrasound so we will know for sure on September 22!

Name: WE HAVE NAMES (for now) !!!!!! We have decided on a girl name and a boy name that we both love. So excited about these names!

Symptoms: The nausea is easing up (thank goodness!), but the fatigue is still in full force. I also came down with a dreaded summer cold last week, so that knocked me down for a few days.

Weight Gain: I had a doctor appointment on Monday and I was down 1 lb from pre-pregnancy weight.

Movement: Crossing my fingers that I might start feeling little flutters in the next few weeks. I've read that you start feel movements earlier with each pregnancy. I started feeling Charlie Beth moving around between 14 and 15 weeks.

Cravings/Aversions: Leftovers sound so gross lately. I'm used to taking leftovers from dinner the night before to work for lunch the next day, but the past couple of weeks pulling food out of the refrigerator from the night before has made me want to gag. Also, the thought of eggs make me want to vomit.

Missing anything: Sushi sounds really good right about now, specifically a spicy tuna roll.

Sleep: I broke out the pregnant pillow last week. It was already getting uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach (my favorite way to sleep).

Mood: Mainly emotional with a side of moodiness. ;)

Maternity Clothes: My awesome mom (or Boo as Charlie Beth calls her) took me shopping on Saturday for some maternity clothes. I'm still in this awkward in-between stage where none of my regular clothes fit right, but I don't quite look pregnant enough to sport the bump.

Nursery: No thoughts have been given to this category yet. I'll start planning and designing once we know if this baby is a boy or a girl.

Best moment this week(s): Probably deciding on a boy name and a girl name that we both love.

Looking forward to: Seeing our little babe on ultrasound in a couple of weeks!
Husband is: Excited that we have decided on names so I will stop texting him name suggestions all day everyday while he's at work. ;)
