10 weeks pregnant ๐Ÿ’™

February 8th- 10 weeks 1day

Oh my gosh itโ€™s only 12 days until my 3 month scan finallyyyyyy! It helps that my birthday is next Friday so Iโ€™m looking forward to that and then my scan is the following Tuesday!!! God I canโ€™t wait to start posting these posts on my blog and be able to write about my pregnancy on my social media! Itโ€™s been so so hard keeping it a secret as weโ€™ve known for what feels like bloody forever ago.

Emotional state- Iโ€™m good this week, my moods are still quite bad, one minute Iโ€™m good the next I donโ€™t want to talk to anyone! Work seems to have sorted itself out now and my hours are no longer in jeopardy so my emotions are good thanks to that being sorted. Have I cried this week? Hmm nope I donโ€™t think I have you know! This week my poor Connor has had the dreaded chicken pox, although I was very happy heโ€™d finally got them! So I think my emotions have sort of been distracted ๐Ÿ˜‚. Itโ€™s half term next week which means Connor will have been home for 2 full weeks so weโ€™ll see how my emotional state is doing by then!! Wish me luck!

Cravings- ok so McDonaldโ€™s is becoming a problem. I really really want it all the time and because I canโ€™t have it everyday like I wish I could itโ€™s kind of affecting my mood. I took Connor to maccy ds while we were shopping earlier and I thought Iโ€™ll just have a cheese burger, you know be good and get something off the pound saver menu. I didnโ€™t even have chips! But I wish Iโ€™d ordered 3 because i could of easy ate it over and over again๐Ÿ™„. Iโ€™m really trying to cook proper meals but this week my appetite seems to be all over the place. And Iโ€™m still getting the sickness during the day and evening so Iโ€™m trying to eat through that aswell. Foods becoming a nightmare basically. Iโ€™m also extremely gutted I canโ€™t eat PEPERAMIโ€™s! I love these and could eat a million now Iโ€™m pregnant but reading up online it advises you to freeze them 4 days beforehand and well that just seems a bit eww. So Iโ€™m going to ask my midwife when I see her!

Things that are irritating me- umm Iโ€™ve had to rack my brain this week and I donโ€™t think things are really โ€œirritating meโ€ as such. I get really HANGRY at the moment and if Iโ€™m not eating what I really fancy then thatโ€™s irritating as shit. But apart from that I think Iโ€™m good this week. Lukeโ€™s been working late all week so I havenโ€™t really seen him so heโ€™s in the clear for once ๐Ÿ˜‚ itโ€™s usually something to do with him that grates on me!

Tummy changes- This week I have noticed a slight bump at the lower part of my tummy! Itโ€™s probably McDonaldโ€™s but it makes me feel better if itโ€™s the start of my bump ๐Ÿ˜‚. Iโ€™m still bloated as ever but I do think as soon as Iโ€™m over 3 months itโ€™ll all start to calm down lots. I hope.

Things Iโ€™ve learnt from my googling obsession- So this week the main thing I googled was โ€œwhat does a kumquat look likeโ€ because apparently thatโ€™s the size of the baby this week! So if you donโ€™t know what a kumquat is itโ€™s a weird fruit thatโ€™s the size of a small orange basically ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. Hereโ€™s a picture…

Hereโ€™s a weird fact for you, did you know the word midwife comes from the Anglo-Saxon word โ€œmit wifโ€ meaning โ€œ with womanโ€.

On another note Disneyland is soooo close!! Iโ€™m so excited I went and changed up some euros and bought some travel sized products. Because we are only going for 3 nights Iโ€™m going to try and pack light with products etc but I know what Iโ€™m like, Iโ€™ll be throwing unnecessary shit in the suitcase soon enough!

Iโ€™m so excited to do our pregnancy reveal in the best place on Earth, weโ€™re going to tell the kids over there too! So by the time you guys read this youโ€™ll probably have already seen the reveal post!

Iโ€™m having to fight the urge to buy, god Iโ€™m desperate to buy little grey and white baby clothes and muslins and unnecessary crap. But I know we should wait till we are past 3 months so part of me is wanting this scan to hurry up just so I can start picking things up! When I was pregnant with Connor my mum and Grandma used to pick me up nappies or milk when they did their food shops and my step mum would pick us up bits that we wouldnโ€™t really think of and store them up for us, so by the time I had Connor we had a million packs of nappies and 6 tubs of milk and so much stuff! So Iโ€™m definitely going to do that again this time.

Is it bad that Iโ€™ve already set up my amazon baby wish list?! This time round Iโ€™m determined to be prepared for everything, a teeny tiny prem baby again, a gigantic full term baby, baby bags packed, maternity in place and just enjoy it all. And if McDonaldโ€™s is what baby wants then who am I to deny it?!
