Week 10!

I cannot believe we're in double digits!!!
Time has flown the past 2 weeks! 
It felt like an eternity from week 4 to 8... longest month of my life keeping such a secret!
It is still a secret but this Sunday we are telling my parents!!
I've been busy planning out exactly how I'm going to tell both sets of parents that I've been distracted from just obsessing over the when.
I am slightly nervous that my mom is going to be upset that I haven't told her yet.  Is 10 weeks too long to go without telling your mom?!   See I don't think it is because I literally haven't had much at all of pregnancy symptoms so it's not like I needed her emotional support through that phase, I've just needed someone to shout I'M PREGNANT to!
and I do that daily to Lee!  about 20 times a day we both look at each other and are like is there really a baby in there?!  It's been fun to have a secret just the two of us.  Although I'm pretty sure Carol is on to me... I know she checks out our mail every day and somehow I've been getting tons of baby ads and mail. weird. and stuff from the hospital. She totally knows.

Anyway, I wanted to be able to tell my mom in person so I can see her face and watch her clap and jump up and down like a crazy lady.
Mom - I expect jumping!

My Dad will be a little less emotional about it... at least I don't expect jumping. He is very practical and I expect several warnings about what not to do like his infamous warning to pregnant women about taking hot baths or getting in hot tubs.  It'll hard boil the baby.

Then we'll have to wait 5 long days before we're able to tell Lee's parents.  In person too!
They're coming for the weekend and I am prepared to tell them within 5 minutes of their arrival on Friday. :)
They will be first time grandparents and I am thrilled to break the news!!!
I have clever ideas cooked up for both announcements and I will share those soon :)

Well, week 10 came without much of bang.  Week 9 was immensely exciting with the first doctor's appointment and confirmation that yes there IS a baby in there despite my lack of symptoms.
I am so thankful for a patient doctor who understood my fears and helped calm them.

I have been craving foods and then once that craving has been met never wanting to see it again. ever.
For instance - I never want to drink red cream soda again, ice cream is out, and I can't eat scrambled eggs, spaghetti, or wheat thins.
However, if it has peanut butter in it this girl will eat it in a heart beat.
I have eaten an entire loaf of bread this week of peanut butter sandwiches.  mmmmmm I hope I never get sick of them, they are so yummy.
And I may or may not have bought 3 Reese's Fast Breaks the other day.
I still have one in my purse for a peanut butter emergency.

All these peanuts made me question if babies could be allergic to foods in the womb, but Lee has assured me that they cannot and my peanut love may actually decrease our baby's chance of developing an allergy.

How far along: 10 weeks
Total weight gain: 0, just some evening bloat 
Maternity clothes: no, but I have gone through my closet millions of times wondering what will actually fit me here in a few months. 
Stretch marks: no. applying coconut oil religiously
Sleep: ok so this one was terrible last night.  I woke up a million times and it wasn't to go to the bathroom  I think I need a new pillow. 
Best moment of this week: Seeing the heartbeat at the doctor!!
Miss anything:  still caffeine. Today a co-worker just brought me a Starbucks Mocha without me asking because that's what I got all fall/winter long... and so I sipped it all morning to not be rude AND I wanted it so bad and ended up finishing about half over the course of 4 hours/  I mean they say you can have 200mg of caffeine a day, but do I need it? no, so why put my baby at any additional risk at all? 
Movement: no. but my lower back and hips are shifting like crazy!
Food cravings: yes! two words. PEANUT BUTTER.
Anything making you queasy or sick: on Saturday afternoon Lee and I went for a walk for ice cream and we stopped at the park on the way home and I swung on a swing and then got very dizzy.  Haha  NO more ice cream. ever. ugh.
Have you started to show yet: no,today I work one of my pencil skirts to work and wondered how much longer I'll be able to do that...
Gender: unknown. We're trying to refer to the baby in either gender neutral terms or use both interchangeably.... even though we both want it to be a boy we'll be just as thrilled with a girl. 
Labor signs: - 
Belly button in or out: in
Wedding rings on or off: On 
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy!!! Lee may disagree but I seriously do not feel hormonal at all... just sometimes a little extra happier ;)
Looking forward to: progressing and telling people!!! EVERYONE!

This is my verse for the week:

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Congratulations! All of your baby posts just showed up in my Reader today! I was the same with peanut butter and couldn't get enough spicy food. It's fun that you, Molly, and I will have little ones sort of near the same age... everyone else is so much older!
