it's 4 o'clock... the beast is here

guess what? "morning sickness" can happen at any time of the day, and fortunately for me that time is from 4pm-bedtime.  i am soooo lucky that i'm not constantly sick during school hours when i'm teaching.  when the clock hits exactly 4pm you better believe you can find me on my couch, dead to the world.

 How far along? 10.5 weeks
Baby is the size of: a prune... yuck.
Total weight gain/loss: -9 lbs due to weird diet and recent stomach bug

 Maternity clothes? bought 2 pairs on sale at gap maternity, skinny jeans and skinny black pants for work. don't think i necessarily need them yet, but holy crap... a stretchy waistband?! sign me up!
 Stretch marks? no
Sleep: tired by 10pm, up in at 'em by 8:30am. college laura would be ashamed.
Best moment this week: slowly recovering from this horrible stomach bug

 Have you told family and friends: add the in-laws to our list!
 Miss Anything? being able to stay up late
 Movement: nope
 Food cravings: all i had was gatorade and jello since sunday.  now i just downed some queso dip and tostitos. yikes.
 Anything making you queasy or sick: this freaking stomach bug on top of being pregnant! it was so much more intense than any other stomach sickness i've ever had
Have you started to show yet:  losing weight has helped, but still a little around my belly button area
Gender prediction: i keep having dreams with the baby in it now, and it's a girl.  however, i have previously craved things only my husband loves to eat so that also convinced me it was a boy. we still have to wait til mid-may to find out!
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: moody.  sorry everyone... again.  i am a little more positive about being pregnant now, even though the timing is soooo off!

 Looking forward to: the end of the 1st trimester (no more nausea and finally a legit baby belly instead of looking just fat)
