10 weeks

how far along?  I know this should be a a 9 weeks post, but when we went to the doctor I was measuring 6 days ahead so she moved my due date up.  I basically skipped 9 weeks and now I'm 10 weeks!!
how are you measuring? 10 weeks
size of baby? It was the size of a grape and now it's the size of a small kumquat.  (I don't even know what that is!!)
heartbeat? 183 bpm (we got to hear it at our sono)
total weight gain/loss? -1.2 pounds
maternity clothes? I'm still wearing my normal clothes and they fit just fine!!
stretch marks? No
sleep? I plan to do a lot of sleeping this week while I am out of school for a whole week!! I really can't get enough sleep!!  Bedtime is around 8:30 for me these days.
best moment this week? Our sonogram was the number one moment of this week.  It was an unbelievable experience.  We got to see our "Little Link", who looked like the cutest little teddy graham.  We could see the heart beating in his/her chest and then we got to hear it.  Praise the Lord!!  After we watched our baby for a little while, he/she began to wiggle around.  It is just amazing to think our little baby (the size of a grape) has little limbs and was moving around inside of me!! Our number two moment of the week was that we announced on our blog and facebook that we were expecting.  We got so many comments.  It really made my day that so many people were so excited for us.  I also told my staff that we were expecting.  I got so many hugs, smiles, and e-mails that day.  Our baby will definitely be loved by lots of people!!
movement? I'm not feeling anything yet.
food cravings? Panera Bread Sierra Turkey Sandwich (details why below)
gender predictions? I honestly have no idea.  
what i miss: Lunchmeat.  Apparently you aren't supposed to eat lunchmeat when you are pregnant.  I just learned this.  Well, you can eat lunchmeat, you just have to heat it up until it's steaming hot to kill the bacteria known as listeria that could be in it.  Pregnant women are more susceptible to this bacteria which is why we shouldn't eat it.  Unfortuneatly, I don't like warm lunch meat. I only like cold sandwiches.  So of course since I can't have cold lunchmeat, that is all I want!!  I just want a Panera Bread Sierra Turkey Sandwich!! I guess I'll have one in June.
what i'm looking forward to: I am looking forward to spending time with my old college roomie Erin, her husband Kory and their new baby Kinsley for a couple of days.  I'm sure I'll get lots of good advice from Erin since she was just pregnant.  I'm also looking forward to spending time with Matt's family over Thanksgiving!! And 9 days off of school!!
how are you feeling? I'm still really tired, but I have 9 whole days to sleep as much as I want. Can you tell I'm excited about the 9 days I get off of school!! Thank you Dr. Fuller for giving us the whole week off for Thanksgiving!!

Congrats that's so exciting! Last fall when I was pregnant I couldn't even walk through the lunch meat section with out feeling sick! I craved tuna sandwiches and hamburgers! Enjoy being pregnant! :)

Isn't the lunch meat thing such a bummer?? I'm going on 5 months without it and it's no easy feat...especially since I used to bring a cold cut sandwich to work every day for lunch!

I love this post...and I'm SO excited for you!!

YAY! One less week you have to wait to see your little babe. :)

Definitely write down everything you want to remember...pregnancy brain kicks in hard (or at least for me) and it was hard to remember special details.

Also, I was SO bummbed about the lunchmeat thing, too. My dad and my OB pretty much said it was SUPER rare to get listeria from lunchmeat, so after about 5-6 months of being paranoid of it, I gave in and started buying freshly cut turkey from the deli counter and made sure I ate it within a few days. It was HEAVEN to finally get a turkey sandwich again!! haha!

So glad everything is going well so far! Hope you can sleep a lot this week!! :)

P.S. If you every have any questions about anything, I'm pretty much an open book :)

P.P.S. Sorry this is the longest comment ever! :)
