25% done with this pregnancy...can hardly believe it...

How far along?  10 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: I am not even getting on the scale right now. I have had salty food, so for my sanity I will stay off from it for right now.
Maternity clothes? Yes...although I still fit into my normal clothes the maternity ones are so much more comfortable since they never press on my stomach
Stretch marks? my old ones...and i am seriously thinking about using Bio - oil
Sleep: Awful...I have been waking up 1-3 times a night to pee, and at least one of those I have to get some soy milk and a granola bar...i am having a horrible time falling back to sleep, and am out of bed every morning by 430...crazy that this is so close to exactly how it was when i was pregnant with Noah...besides I pee way more often
Best moment this week: My cough is mostly gone which has cut down on the severity of the dry heaving/puking which is always a bonus...THIS IS GOING TO BE TMI....but at least now I am not tickling in my pants as i try to puke over the toilet! honestly I have NEVER had urinary issues before or after giving birth to Noah, but I felt like an old lady every time I had to run to the bathroom!
Movement: No :(
Food cravings: Another pregnant friend mentioned Biscuits and gravy on Sunday, and i couldn't get it out of my we went to IHOP...not the best biscuits and gravy, but it did the job.
Gender: Only God knows. 
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.
Belly Button in or out? Still in
What I miss: Not feeling sick if I don't eat something every 2 hours...honestly I would rather go through another 60 hours of labor than have to eat every 2 hours!! This is the worst part of being pregnant...I can not wait until it passes!
What I am looking forward to: Hearing that precious heartbeat in a few weeks at the doctor's and not having to eat every two hours!
Weekly Wisdom: Fully stock your house and freezer with food BEFORE you get pregnant...for some reason the Commissary gives me extreme sickness...even the thought of going there makes me want to puke! Between the smells and the temperature changes, it is inevitable that I am going to feel sick 
Milestones: I am already 25% done with this pregnancy! Can not believe how fast it has gone...but I am not complaining either ;)

9 weeks down

How far along?  9 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Still breaking even at 0lbs gained!
Maternity clothes? Yes and I am so glad that I bought some new tops at least I feel good about myself.
Stretch marks? my old ones.
Sleep: Still have to get up in the middle of the night and eat something and sometimes getting back to sleep is next to impossible!
Best moment this week: Getting sick in a public restroom and actually having a complete stranger ask you  if they can help you with anything. Seriously what are you going to do for me while I am in a stall? And if I let them come in their I am sure that they would have puked too seeing the underside of the toilet...seriously businesses need to take a little more pride and stay on top of their cleaning people! 
Movement: Nothing definite 
Food cravings: I seriously wish I didn't have to eat...i am so sick of looking at food. 
Gender: Only God knows. 
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.
Belly Button in or out? In and I will be in shock if it ever changes
What I miss: Not feeling like I have motion sickness on and off, especially on a car ride.
What I am looking forward to: Hearing that precious heartbeat in a few weeks at the doctor's
Weekly Wisdom: NEVER lift a public toilet seat with anything that you want to keep and be prepared to puke the moment it is up from the awful sight that you will see. 
Milestones: Even though the morning sickness has started I am still having days that I feel great so I will take it!

8 weeks

How far along?  8 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Not yet!
Maternity clothes? Yup I completely caved. Don't get me wrong I can still fit into my normal clothes. However. for some reason I can not stand anything pressing, even slightly, on my belly, so I made the switch to maternity clothes
Stretch marks? my old ones.
Sleep: It has been decent with the exception of the 1230 wake up call to pee and then have to have a glass of milk or something on my stomach or I am up again about 130 feeling like I could be sick.
Best moment this week: Actually being able to take some sudafed and breathe through my nose!
Movement: I don't think so, though there were a couple times that made me go hmmm...but they say it is way to early to feel anything!
Food cravings: Not really. I am pretty sick of eating already
Gender: Only God knows. 
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Not feeling like I need a nap in the middle of the day.
What I am looking forward to: Just enjoying the next few weeks before our 1st real Doctors apt
Weekly Wisdom: Make sure you know why the Dr.'s want you to take certain test and if you think they are not necessary remember it is your body and your baby and don't be afraid to say no.
Milestones: 1st apt scheduled for Aug 8th! Can not wait to hear this baby's heartbeat!

7 weeks along!

How far along?  7 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: No...I thought I went up a pound or so but it must have been water weight!
Maternity clothes? I don't need them, but I did pop into the maternity store and bought some new clothes. And Yes I am lounging in some at the house today because I haven't done laundry and they are comfy and I don't feel the best.
Stretch marks? my old ones.
Sleep: I seriously need a nap right now...but of course Noah is awake...maybe in a few hours. My workout really took a lot out of me.
Best moment this week: Actually feeling almost better after my allergy if the cough would just go fully away!
Movement: No
Food cravings: Salads....and I don't think it is making me feel very good today!
Gender: Only God knows. 
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Not having bathroom issues...enough said.
What I am looking forward to: Going to the doctor next Monday for the paperwork apt. And getting to discuss a few things and set up the first Doctor's apt...where we will hear the heart beat!
Weekly Wisdom: Lay down when your toddler lays down...because by the time you get tired, he is waking up!
Milestones: Everything is still going good as far as I can tell.
