Baby Lutz #2 Update: Week 10

How Far Along: 10 Weeks

Size of Baby: A little less than an inch and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce.

Fruit Size (According to my e-mail from Baby Lutz is the size of a kumquat. To bad I don't know what that is :)

Total Weight Gain: 0 Pounds.... I wonder how many weeks i'll be able to put that up for? HAHA I put on just about 50 with Ryder.

Maternity Clothes: I hope to not be needing them for a while. I bought my first pair of leggings, and think I might just live in them for the next 7ish months!

Gender: I think Derrik would be satisfied with all boys, but wants a girl because he knows my desire for all things pink! I honestly just want a healthy baby. I find myself looking at baby boy clothes out shopping, picturing a baby boy in my arms, but envision myself using our girl name. I guess i'm 50/50. It should still be a little while until we know when we should find out.

Movement: It's still to early, but so excited for this! I can't remember when I first started feeling it with Ryder.

Food Cravings: Nothing really that is always the same. I haven't been feeling great so as soon as I think of something that sounds good I make a point to eat it right away. Derrik was slightly cranky with this at first, but seems to realize it's what works to keep me feeling better.

What I Miss: Feeling in control of my body. The nausea has subsided quite a bit thanks to the Zofran, but the sleepiness really gets me in the early afternoon. I never dealt with any of that with Ryder so it's been a lot to get adjusted to. I also had really awful hip pain with Ryder, and am already experiencing this after doing even a little bit of walking such as grocery shopping. I am hoping our doctor can do something for this so I can maybe work out and NOT gain 50 pounds this time!

Labor Signs: Umm... I can probably delete this line until the third trimester? I think we'll go ahead and do that.

Sleep: I wake up to go to the bathroom about once a night, but that is a norm for me. Ryder has been sleeping great in his big boy bed so we'll just enjoy our full nights of sleep for a little longer :)

How’s Ryder Handling It: Awesome! Not too much has changed in his world yet. We took the crib apart this weekend, and put it in our storage closet. We told him we'd get it back out when the baby was ready. Up until we took it apart every time he saw it he would tell us "baby's bed". He knows there is a baby coming, and points to my belly or most of the time his belly. He understands what babies are thanks to my friend Tricia's daycare, and absolutley loves to get the bottle or paci for me if i'm holding one of them. He is going to be an amazing big brother!

What is the same/different as the last time: Very different! With Ryder I felt amazing the first trimester, and didn't really have a belly until almost 15 weeks. It's already getting hard to hide at ten weeks this time around!

Symptoms: Just the hip pain I talked about above and the sleepiness

Best Moment This Week: Not baby related... seeing Ryder in his halloween costume. He is such a cutie!

What I Am Looking Forward To: Our 1st trimester screening on October 20th when we will get to see the little one, and our first doctors appointment October 28th to finally meet the doctor and get things rolling.

Yay! I've been watching for this ALL day. :) And you look great! Ryder will be the BEST big brother!!! You guys can practice with Logen once he arrives (plus you'll have all those baseball wives' babies to practice with during Spring Training). :)

Awww, you are cute!! I gained a ton with my pregnancies also! 60+!!! I really wished I had worked out as well! Glad the nausea is subsiding! That is no fun!
