10 weeks

10 weeks today!

I am lucky and I know it! I've had VERY mild symptoms so far and this just continues.

No Nausea, No vomiting, No food aversions, No food cravings, No pooping issues

My only proof that I am actually pregnant is positive tests, good ultrasounds, weight gain, sore/growing boobs, a small belly starting to form, and getting up to pee 2-3 times a night. 

I am definitely counting my blessings because I know how horrible the first trimester can be for most women.

I am grateful/ecstatic to be where I am and the worry is starting to ease, but I guess it just doesn't go away magically with every step forward.

Today's black shirt on black pants makes the belly look bigger than it is, it's an odd angle and you can barely see my boobs. And you get yet another dog photo-bombing, this is Bella, she was officially added to the pack last Easter.

10 weeks

 Speaking of Easter, I figured I could update a little on the rest of my life. We are in the middle of putting together a large greenhouse in our small backyard. With it we should easily be able to grow plants all year round! It's half done though so the pieces are scattered and taking over the yard. The husband took a break from building it this weekend and we went to a friend's house for Easter dinner. We had a good time, played some games outdoors and ate great food!

My contribution was dyed deviled eggs. I wish I could say that they were a hit, but there just weren't many deviled egg lovers at this party, so about half came back home with us.

Ready to go in Pyrex!

Other than that it's been the same old same old around here. I hope to get back to posting more about my life and my projects around here. I just have very little energy at the end of the day (Hey! Another pregnancy symptom!). I do make a special effort to post on Thursday. I have to con the husband into taking one crappy iphone photo just to post though! Might be time to invest in a real camera again.


  1. Those eggs look amazing! Charlie is a deviled egg super fan - I will definitely have to give this a shot. :)

    I can't believe you're 10 weeks already - this is just flying by suddenly!

  2. Hi Michelle...I have been reading your blog for a few months now and I wanted to say hi and congratulations. My husband and I are about the same ages as you and Nate (I'm 29, he's 32) and we've been trying for 3 years now to have our first. Currently I'm in my 2WW from an IUI. I think we have to do one more before we can move on to IVF if this isn't successful. Anyway, it's been great reading about your experience and hearing that there is indeed hope for those of us who have been trying and (impatiently) waiting for so very long. :) ~Jenn
