So today I have reached double digits in this pregnancy. I am exactly 10wks. That means I have 2wks until I can say I have made it to the second trimester , 8wks until I reach the point where I Camron and Xavien were born, and the point were I went into the hospital with Tristen and 9wks away from the point when he was born. So needless to say that this will be an interesting time. I can't say that I am nervous, but I think I'm anxious to get to that point and past it. I whole heartedly believe that I will bring home a healthy living baby this time, but sometimes things do sneak up on me. I hope and pray everyday that this TAC is doing it's job. I try my best to live in the moment, thank God for this pregnancy and enjoy every minute of it I can, which is sometimes hard to do when you're exausted , nauseated and stuffy.

It's such a delicate balance. I try my best not to complain because I don't want to seem ungrateful, but sometimes it just seems hard. I've been pregnant 3 years in a row now and the first 2 years never getting past the point where relief starts to come. It's like I went from nausea to heartache. and this pregnancy is so very different from those pregnancies. I absolutely cannot stand water, yes water I know right ! the most tasteless thing the most needed thing for me and I hate it, it's a task for me to get down one bottle of it, but I force myself and as of late it's been kinda easy, oh and I also love frosted flakes right now, and I have to have eggs and pancakes every morning (sometimes biscuits instead). This time around my 10wk belly looks like a 14wk belly lol. and I've actually had some pretty bad cramping from time to time. and again nausea sucks! BUT, I will endure it all, I am thankful for it all, because it means I have a baby that is growing and thriving and most importantly alive! So I will take it all, I will endure it all with hoping and praying that this one will come home , living, breathing and in my arms and not as a box of memories.

Sorry this post may be a little all over the place (my mind has been all over the place lately)

I've also decided that it's time I started take some belly shots so here goes: (oh and please don't mind the hair)

Love your belly! Here's to many more months of growing that belly as big as it wants to get! Thinking of you daily, and loving your updates.

You are absolute cuteness! Seriously! When I couldn't seem to drink water I put those little mixes in it, I used one for every 32 oz, b/c they were too strong for just 16. That helped me. Hope the nausea goes away, from someone who had it for 38 weeks, I really hope it lets up soon! Believing with you that your miracle is coming! Lots of love my sweet beautiful friend!

You look fabulous! Praying that the belly gets HUGE this time and you get a sweet fat noisy baby.

So beautiful! Congrats on making it to 10 weeks! Can't wait to follow you as you pass many more milestones!

Love the belly shots. Keeping you in my prayers.
Maybe you could add some lemonade to your water.
I've been drinking this way for years now and Tropicana has a very low sugar one out now that doesn't have artificial sweetners. I usually go half and half. A few more weeks and the nausea should stop. If not I found out that my friend had to go gluten free for her 3 pregnancy and the nausea stopped.
