Our Sweet Prune

How far along? 10 weeks

Baby's size and stats? 1.5 inches long, the size of a large prune! This week baby is starting to form bones, muscles, and finishing touches on many of the internal organs. If you put an object in the babies hand, he/she could grab it and hold it ;) Also, his/her eyes are open and the eyelids are beginning to fuse.

Gain? 2 pounds

Maternity clothes? Don't think differently of me, but yes! I love them. I'm not really "showing", but I'm soooo bloated so I've discovered a few pairs of maternity pants and they are w.o.n.d.e.r.f.u.l.

Sleep? I am not sleeping! I toss and turn, pee every hour, have back pain, switch sides, pee again, then finally fall asleep only to wake up and pee!

Foods I am/ am not loving? Meat is slowing coming back in my diet. I still don't want to cook it though. I made chicken last night and only ate 2 bites for giving my sandwich to Jeff. Sweets are slowing coming back today too.

Best moment this week? As usual, just making it to 10 weeks! I'm looking forward to our next appt in two weeks so we can hear the heartbeat. Only 3 more weeks until I'm out of the 1st trimester!

Symptoms/Emotions? I'm not as emotional, in fact, I'm rather impatient lately. Things people say tend to bother me more than before and I've found myself wanting to say my true feelings to people.

Gender? Boy....or Girl! 50-50 chance ya know? ;)

What I'm thankful for: A God who answered my prayers and still continues to bless me even with all of my short-comings.

Prayer Requests: For several of my friends who are expecting as well. Please pray for God to calm their fears, protect their babies, and continue to bless their marriages.

Someday I will post belly pics, but right now there's not much to show and tonight I'm exhausted. I was falling asleep during conversations at church tonight so I need to go to bed. Maybe in the next few weeks I'll have a little bump to share :)
