10 Weeks (and change)

I've been meaning to fill these out for every week, but I have honestly been slacking. So here we are at 10 weeks and I'm just getting started. If you know me, you should have expected it!

How far along? 10 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain/loss: Down about 12 pounds (give or take, haven't been weighed in about a week)
Maternity clothes? Nope, still rocking the Bella
Sleep: I love it, but I am having problems staying asleep. I wake up around 5 every morning, usually fall back asleep, but it's still annoying. I'm up by 7 on the days I can sleep in and want to sleep til noon on the days I have to be up early.
Best moment this week: Going 24 hours without throwing up...too bad that didn't last long but I'll deal with it. It's still not horrible, even when I'm barfing my soul up.
Movement: None yet. I tried our doppler out the other day and just picked up the sounds of the placenta. I'm still way early to be using the doppler we have. I need to order one of the medical grade ones, but...I don't know if I want to make the $100 commitment right now.
Food cravings: Rare, but when I do have them, they are insane and I need whatever I am craving at.that.moment.
Gender: Depends on the hour and the weather, haha. I am thinking girl most of the time, Ben is standing firm on boy.
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach
What I am looking forward to: Our NT Scan on the 19th. It seems like forever away! And feeling comfortable enough to spill the beans on facebook...I'm still not there yet.
Weekly Wisdom: Eat often. Going more than about 4 hours is what I am thinking is triggering my barfing.
Milestones: Right now, every day is a milestone. I am more pregnant than I have ever been, so everyday is a huge deal. Reaching double digit weeks was a big deal to me yesterday. Our goal is 40 weeks, 37 at the earliest, so every day is one day closer to our goal.

Word from the barf pro: eat often, enjoy what's going down because you'll see it again. A good year is 12 months without hurling!
