One-Fourth Baked Baby

10 weeks down- 30 to go!!! I know it's early but I am already counting down- only 30 more weeks till our sweet baby is here!

My hormones are raging now and have wrecked havoc on my and my husband's emotional sanity.

Funny story on that:

I was being super grumpy a few nights ago- Jonny came in to give me a hug and accidentley burped in my face- which in turn caused me to do some serious dry heaving. He laughed, trying to find the humor- apologized, and I cried and looking back it was kinda funny, however in the moment I wanted to kill my husband. Moral of the story: Don't burp in a pregnant ladies face.

By the end of this week my little embryo is finally considered a "fetus." WOO HOO! Baby's brain will make an incredible 25,000 new neurons every minute this week. I swear I am loosing all my brain cells and neurons and the baby is taking them all! Baby weighs only 4 grams and measures 1½ inches, about the size of a prune. What's so strange to me is ALREADY all the little details like the baby's finger nails and little peach fuzz hair is already growing this week! It's like a tiny little miniature baby- haha so strange!he's swallowing and kicking all the time!

Side Effects: Besides being a bit tummy itches all the time and I am feeling some aches and pains, I am reading that is my stretching ligaments or something?? Nausea was SO bad yesterday- even WITH my nausea pills! All the normal side effects I suppose: headaches, constipation (TMI) I know. :)

Other good news: Set up my 14 week ultrasound to find out the sex of the baby- hope he/she is not shy! :) December 6th is the big day and I seriously can't wait! AND My due date got moved up to June 4th :)

My appt today: AMAZING. Not gonna lie- got a little teary eyed when I saw my baby moving! If you can see this video below you can see the baby's arm waving saying hi to mom and dad. Jonny and I were both freaking out for reals- I had NO idea I would see the baby move so much! She didn't catch the first part on video but it did a few body rolls- haha It was SO crazy to watch it's tiny little body move around! FINALLY got to hear the heartbeat! Most amazing sound ever- Jonny recorded it of course. We move in two weeks to our new home and I cannot WAIT to start the nursery!!!! Still in complete awe that this is really happening for us. :)


  1. AAAww how wonderful and exciting! Glad to hear that things are going well. Nicole was born June 1st!

  2. Aww I am so excited for you guys Brittany! You wrote about "itchy tummy!" If you mean your skin I totally suggest cocoa butter. I think they make the Palmers cocoa butter in a stick you can throw in your purse to use anytime It doesnt smell that great,but someone told me about it when I asked if there was anything to help with this!!! I'd go crazy itchin all the time cause the skin is stretching and it did help. Some women swear it helps prevent stretch marks too...(hmmm...not sure about that :) lol but worth a try! Its so awesome that you are sharing your story with all of will be super special for your sweet baby to read one day when they are older :) Ps...your story about your hubby totally made me hubby was lucky to make it out of our pregnancies alive...and it was always the little things that set me off...woa hormones! :) too funny!

  3. How awesome! We are thrilled for you guys! And that is a hilarious story! Sorry that your not feel'n so hot. It's all worth it! We are excited to find out what you guys are having as well!

  4. This is so awesome! I think of your often and pray that things continue to go well. The emotional side of pregnancy can be tough; it is a good thing our husbands are so patient! Good luck trying to stay sane through it all!
