10 weeks!

I am now 1/4 of the way through being pregnant. We went to the doctor yesterday for the 10 week appoinment. She had a hard time finding the heartbeat with the doppler. By hard time I mean she looked for about 30 seconds and said "screw it I'll ultrasound you." So we got to see the little jellybean and hear the heartbeat after all. She noticed I had a bicornate uterus (means its heart shaped). There are a few risks involved because there isn't as much room as a normal uterus... higher chance of breech, preterm labor... but she said 90% of the time its fine. I'm not too worried. Plus, I get more ultrasounds to monitor growth more closely. Fine by me. I don't mind seeing the baby at almost every appt. She pushed the due date back to 12/31. My guess is with the already small space being even smaller than normal, I go closer to the Christmas Day due date, probably before. Even with the news, it was a great appointment I thought and she said everything is going wonderfully.

Baby size: Prune
Any symptoms? ta-ta's still hurt and I've been experiencing a little bit more nausea than before. Still haven't yacked though :)
Cravings? snocones, hot ham and cheese sandwich.. haven't had either :(
Favorite part so far? telling the world the good news (more on that in a second)
Least favorite part so far? Passing out. Tuesday at 3:30am, I got up to pee and to make a long story short, I passed out a couple times. Thankfully Danny was at home and caught me both times.
Boy or Girl? I had an extremely vivid dream that it was a boy. It was much more clear than the girl dream. We find out for sure on August 1st!
Names? Still have the same girl names and I doubt those change. Danny keeps suggesting cowboy names for boys: Rowdy.... Boze... no.

Like I said, we announced our good news to the world last night by putting it on Facebook. Ya know, because nothing is official until its on Facebook. We actually let Diesel do the talking....

Doesn't he look so excited? He has been so great the last few days. Every time I got up to pee last night, which was a total of 3 in case anyone cares, he followed me most of the way there. I thought he needed to pee too, but he was just checkin on mom. The last year or so I've been so worried about having a baby around him, but I think he'll do just fine.

I hope everyone has an excellent Friday and a great weekend! I know I'm going too!
