10 Weeks Even Though I’m 11 Now

Before I get into my update I want to say a few things.

1. Like my new winter flair? I’m SO ready for Christmas this year, more than I normally am this time of year. I even put my tree up a day BEFORE Thanksgiving (Gasp!) Danielle, from The Design Girl helped me winterize my blog! She’s having a special right now on Holiday designs, so go no over and check it out on her blog!

2. I am a finalist for best Mom2Be Blog. I LOVE the other bloggers, so I won’t be offended if you don’t choose me. However, I’m not too proud to beg, and I’d love it if you could take a moment to vote. There’s not sign up required, and the contest goes on for two weeks. If I win I get a $50 for Spawnie to Baby Gap! Thank you!!

I wanted to still post a 10 week update even though as of Friday I’m 11 weeks. I also have a confession to make about this weeks photo. Usually I take the picture sometime between Friday or Sunday but last week I was looking so small that I waited until after dinner Tuesday to take this picture. I still don’t think it’s as big as week 9 but it just goes to show that your tummy size can go up and down at first when you’re small and possibly bloated and whatnot!
This week was the first full week that I felt “publicly pregnant” the last couple of days at work. I unbuttoned and unzipped my pants so they’d be comfortable, slipped on my Bella Band and often glanced down at my tummy during the day.

To others it may look like I’ve eaten one too many orders of french fries, but to me, I know I’ve got my growing Spawnie in there.

According to the Baby Center weekly picture updat thingy Spawnie became more human-looking this week!-Spawnie can now bend at the limbs!
-Spawnie is now kicking up a storm (I just wish I could feel it!)
-More than an inch long now!
– This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in Spawnie’s body rapidly grow and mature.

So this was all week 10 and I’m staring week 11 Friday. I’ll post an update on that soon just so I catch up but tomorrow I’ve gotta tell you about my crazy cravings… Or maybe how I KNOW my dog knows I’m pregnant! Not sure which one yet, guess we’ll see what I feel (or don’t feel like) later!

Please remember to vote! Thanks!

Christmas update looks awesome, I love blue and white for christmas, so pretty!

Hello from SITS!

Emily says:

Can I say how I’m still so excited for you?! And that will be so great when you can feel Spawnie kick.

Hoping I’m right behind you, though!


Emily says:

P.S. Can I ask…what is SITS? I see so many people mention it in their comments.

Emmy says:

I know when I was that far along I couldn’t help myself but touch my belly, look at it, etc.. so gave it away a lot sooner than the belly itself did. While you definitely have a little belly going most of the world probably doesn’t even realize it yet, but don’t worry you think you can’t hide it now.. oh you just wait.

Sophia's Mom says:

Thanks for the update!
I love those baby center graphics! They really let you know what’s going on!

ps. I am DEFINITELY voting for you!

CalgaryDaddy says:

Exciting! Good Luck on the blog award…I tried to send some votes your way today!


KarmaPearl says:

Your bump is too cute. I’m excited for you to start feeling the little bumps and kicks. I started feeling my daughter wiggle around 19 weeks, and her kicks started getting consistent around 21-23 weeks. Good luck in the contest, I know I’ve got my work cut out for you in competing with you!!! 🙂 🙂

KarmaPearl says:

That comment should have been “I’ve got my work cut out for ME in competing with you”.

Sigh. Pregnant brain… It starts in the beginning and just gets worse and worse.

Toni says:

Your baby bump is so cute! I’ve been sending my votes in for ya!! *crosses fingers you win!*

Mommy Bee says:

They say you can feel the baby around 16 wks (although first time mamas often say it’s more like 18-20) but a lot of moms feel them earlier. I swear I felt this kiddo at 11-12 wks. I think the real thing is not whether they are moving, or whether you can feel it, but whether you can *recognize* what you are feeling. Those tiny flutters can feel an awful lot like gas bubbles LOL!!

Terin says:

How exciting! Congrats on being 10 weeks. I wish you the best in the weeks to come.

milftobe says:

I remember being annoyed at people who told me my bump was bloat… even if it was true, I was like- no! it’s a BABY! haha. definitely baby 🙂 you look great!

Nichole says:

I am so incredibly excited for you! I love reading your updates. As I read about your progress it reminds me of my own pregnancy. My friend who was 8 weeks ahead of me told me after her daughter was born that she missed being pregnant. At 32 weeks myself and increasingly uncomfortable, I could not fathom how or why she could feel that way. BUT, almost 4 weeks after I gave birth, I’m feeling the same way. Enjoy it!!

how exciting! noticed you are from texas…we got snow in houston today! whooohooo!

Jess says:

Ok so maybe I lied just a lil but soon you will catch up to my bump. You are so cute and hey we both stole baby center pics lol. Soon enough Spawnie will drive you nuts with the kicks like right now I’m tired I want to sleep but Dot is kicking up a storm, can’t help but smile and poke her back hehe remind me to vote tomorrow when I’m actually at the computer 🙂

DesignerSam says:

I found out right about the time that you did that I am pregnant as well… I am 10 weeks Wednesday!! 🙂 Hope you aren’t as sick as I am though 0_o

Angie says:

Yipee! I have been searching for baby blogs of people that might be due around the time I am…and I found yours! Congrats, and ditto to the last comment…being horribly sick is not fun.

Sophia's Mom says:

I just tagged you in a Christmas meme!

I’m really interested to know how your dog knows you are pregnant. I just got a bella band but haven’t tried it yet. Does it work? Enjoy your little tummy. In 11 more weeks you’ll look like me http://joanofalltrades.blogspot.com/2009/12/wordless-wednesday-past-halfway-mark.html

*Alice Anne* says:

11 weeks already?! I can’t believe how fast time is going by! You’re over 25% of the way done! Craziness. I’m so excited for you! I can’t wait to see how cute little Spawnie will be. 🙂

Loving the flakes. I added some to MDB too. Your bump’s so cute! Mine was MIA til 19wks-ish.
