Week Ten(Nov. 13th-20th):
How far along? 10 Weeks
Total weight gain: Still wishing I was one of those girls who haven't gained a pound...pshhh 23 LB's over here! 
Stretch Marks? I'm seeing a few small red ones on my breasts...of course not only am I for surely not all belly, but you gotta add stretch marks too? Damn, a momma can't get a break? I guess the two go hand-in-hand.
Sleep: I am still completely exhausted, if time permits I can sleep up to 13 hours..cooking up a human is no joke!
Maternity Clothes: I have already had to purchase the Belly Band, which has bought me a little time. 
Best moment this week: Brian has taken over all most of the house work & laundry. Who gets up at 5:30am to do laundry? That would be Mr. Rainey, cause I sure as hell don't.
Miss Anything?  I'm gonna stick with Abs & energy... I am still teaching 3 boxing fitness classes per day with Brian & by teaching I mean I am burning around 600 calories (how on God's green earth I still weigh a million pounds I have no frickin' idea!).
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: Chipotle Burritos anyone?
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still not a fan of the frozen pre-cooked chicken
Gender Prediction: We both still think it is a girl
Labor Signs: None yet
Symptoms: I have always issues with my Sciatic Nerve & for some reason this week (I was surprised so early) it flared up bad! I use a foam roller & ice every night & throughout the day. The only relief I can get is walking. Laying down or sitting has always made it worse.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: If your happy & you know it....rub your (small) baby bump!
Looking Forward to: Our 12 week doctor's appointment.

How far along? 9 Weeks
Total weight gain: I'm still at my weight gain of 22lbs...I'm not even going to try & justify that shit.
Stretch Marks? None yet
Sleep: I am tired all of the time, however it is so hard for me to fall asleep at night & I am peeing throughout the night already ( that was actually one of the first things I noticed since I usually sleep like a rock & NEVER wake up in the night).
Maternity Clothes: I'm afraid I'll be needing them sooner rather than later 
Best moment this week: Despite me wanting to wait until 12 weeks to share with everyone we couldn't wait & have started sharing the news with close friends, since we have already told out family.
Miss Anything? My energy
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: Still on a queso kick & Mexican food of course, where else would you get queso?Anything making you queasy or sick: Still not a fan of the frozen pre-cooked chicken
Gender Prediction: We both still think it is a girl
Labor Signs: None yet
Symptoms: Nausea, especially if I don't fall asleep quick enough at night after taking my prenatals (which is usually the case, I am such a night owl) & Brian is an early bird...opposites attract much?
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking Forward to: Actually showing!

Food cravings: uhm let's see queso, queso & more queso...this baby is going to be made on queso & I was wondering where all this "baby weight" came from & by baby weight I mean queso weight of course :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: We went to Hooters about a week ago & I got nauseous (this was before we found out) & I attempted to eat one of the frozen pre-cooked chicken breasts the other day...couldn't stomach that either.
Gender Prediction: Predicting it is a girl, according to the old wives tales a fast heart rate means girl? Yes I am one of those girls.
