Baby #4: Week 10

I'm in one of those stages where I have little to no time to sit and write to my heart's content...but I am embarking on a new pregnancy and I'm hoping to document the weeks here, much like I did with my last one. I would like to do it weekly but in the beginning it may be every couple weeks since not too much is going on. :)

Today's Date: June 24, 2014
How many weeks pregnant? 10 weeks and a few days

Which trimester are you in? First
Have you told anyone about your pregnancy yet? Yes. We just told immediate family (and a few close friends) when I first found out, around Mother's Day. We told the world at large not long after. I know not everyone does it that way, but I have a hard time keeping secrets. :)

Bump photo: None of those until Week 12! I got pregnancy stickers that start then and am hoping to do one in the same/similar location and clothing so we can document the growing belly better. :)
How big is baby? Baby is currently the size of a prune.
Pregnancy symptoms: Puking daily, upon waking. One I could do without BUT at least it's not all day or all night. Some moodiness. Occasional nausea.
Cravings/Aversions: No cravings really. Mostly food just doesn't sound appealing.
Best moment this week: Visiting the midwife today! I was not expecting to hear the heartbeat - since it's still relatively early - but she found it! I was soooooo excited. 156, for those who are curious. We go back next month, toward the end of the month.
Are you wearing maternity clothes yet? I don't know that I ever stopped after my last pregnancy, honestly. I have some "regular" clothes but the maternity clothes were also very comfortable for I still wear a lot of them. *ducks head in shame*
Have any stretch marks? This is the ONE time I will answer this question for this pregnancy. Yes. I have lots. From previous pregnancies. I have stopped counting and imagine I may get a few more this time.
Weight Gain: -1. I'm down one pound from my pre-pregnancy weight.
Movement: None yet. That would be a bit freaky!
Know the gender yet? What are you/Dad hoping for? We do not. I also don't know that we'll be finding out this time. We're set on baby clothes and although it goes against my intense need to plan...I feel like it may be worth the wait. We'll see. We would be glad with a boy or girl. My intuition says girl at the moment. I've been right every time thus far. :)
Decided on any names? This is also the last time I'll answer this question. You all will know the name after he/she arrives Earthside. We don't reveal the names ahead of time, much to the chagrin of others. ;)
How are your other children? They haven't said too much. They're both (the older ones I mean) excited and happy, but since I don't have a belly yet they're not constantly reminded of it.
Sleep: I love sleeping. I have periodic days of exhaustion where I'm just dragging all day long but luckily they are few & far between. And all the kids are good sleepers so I think that is really helping.
Nesting: None yet!

  1. Hey congratulations on baby number 4! So are you done yet?? Haha! Just kidding! I'm currently pregnant with my 4th too! I'll be 20 weeks on Tuesday. On Monday, I have an ultrasound and hopefully find out if it's a girl or boy. I just have to know! But like you, we don't divulge the name either. ;) At leasy that one secret I can keep. LOL.

    BTW, I was just reading your bio and our kids are almost close in age. Except my oldest is a girl, she's 9. My second just turned 5. And my third will be 3 on the 29th of this month! Also, I'm older than you (darn!) - I'm thirty-something. I homeschool too! So anyway, nice to meet you!
