Hello all! I've been sitting on this post for a week now... finally getting the pictures on my computer. I'm also kinda embarrassed to even post this... but the baby bump has got to start somewhere right? I figure if I don't start taking pictures of the bump, then all the sudden I'm gonna have a bump and not know when it started! So... here's a pic of me at 10 weeks.
1. Bloating/water retention/constipation... fabulous right? And definitely happening. Everything that is going in, is NOT coming out... to put it as not-disgusting as possible.
2. Weak abdominal muscles... definitely a possibility considering my lack of strenuous exercise the past few months, but it's not like I've had a baby before so I can't really use this excuse.
3. Weight gain... ummm, probably. Considering eating is what helps the nausea every few hours, I'm definitely taking in more than usual!
4. Twins? Nope. We do have twins on Russell's side of the family, but the ultrasound lady said "there's just one in there!"
So basically what can we determine from this research? I'm fat. No, I don't really think that... but I am looking forward to actually having a baby bump and not just a bloated bump. Maybe the next time I post a bump picture, it'll be more convincing that there's a baby in there.
