Week 10 Bumpdate.

Week 10 - 210 days to go!

It's already week 10! Time seems to be flying by...for now :) 

I've been slacking on my weekly updates. The last few weeks have been pretty rough as far as how I've been feeling. With only a few weeks left in my first trimester I hope that I'll be feeling better soon! 

The little one is still growing fast. It's about the size of a kumquat. That's a big change from the poppy seed it was just 6 weeks ago! All of its critical development is complete and it's tiny little organs are starting to function. It's little fingers and toes are no longer webbed and it can move its limbs. I hope to feel those little movements in the next few weeks :) 

I have my first prenatal appointment this week. I'm really excited and hope to hear a beautiful little heartbeat <3

As far as my bump goes, it's definitely growing. In the morning it's looks like the picture below, but thanks to plenty of bloating its huge by the end of the day!! 

I'll be sure to update next week with all the details from my appointment :)

Week 7 Bumpdate.

Week 7 - 231 days to go!

Not a lot of changes for this week. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good. I'm just soooo tired! I had fatigue my first 2 pregnancies, but with a quick nap I was able to make it through my day. This time no amount of napping makes me not feel tired. Other than that I can't complain. 

It was really important to me to continue working out through this pregnancy. That is turning out to be easier said than done. Aside from having no energy, I physically can't do what I could do just 8 weeks ago. I attempted a Zumba class and got so winded and exhausted, I had to leave halfway through. I'm nervous to push myself too far so I'm sticking with walking and light to moderate weights. Hopefully the 2nd trimester will bring more energy and I can pick it up a bit. 

The little bun in my oven is growing like crazy! It has doubled in the past week and its now the size of a blueberry :) little hands and feet are developing and the tip of its little nose is visible. 

Here is this weeks bump picture: 

Not much of a change. There is a little bit of a pooch, but that's just bloat ;)

Here is a diagram of my little blueberry. If anatomically correct diagrams offend you then I would suggest that you stop reading now :)
