10 Weeks

How far along: 10 Weeks. My sister pointed out that it is a quarter of the way through my pregnancy! Crazy!
How big is the baby: Size of a prune
Weight gain: 0.0
Doctor: 2 more weeks until my 12 week appointment. I can do this! I can! I'm just so excited to hear the heartbeat!!!
Clothes: I have been wearing all my regular clothes this week.
Sleep: Normal except for sometimes waking up and not being able to go back to sleep. I love sleep! I am only going to the bathroom about once per night now.
Movement: Not yet!
Food/Aversions: Nothing really. I found out that soft serve ice cream is a no-no this week and that was sad. Risk of listeria in the spout since it isn't sterilized often. I guess I will have to make do with store bought! I almost went into a depression when I heard that Jimmy Johns cuts their meat and cheese on the same slicer. 1) As a vegetarian: gross. 2) As a pregnant lady: could increase risk of listeria. I wasn't just going to let that one go though. I called a local JJ and asked "Do you cut your meat and cheese on the same slicer?" and the guy said, "Yup". Adam thought I should ask if they sterilized so I called back another one (so I didn't sound too crazy) and asked the same question. He said, "Yes, we cut all the cheese, meat, and veggies on the same slicer, but it is completely sterilized between each item." I said, "Wiped down? Or sterilized?" He said they wash it with hot water and soap and then sterilize the whole table and slicer with a bleach solution. Phew! I know you can't make yourself crazy with what is "safe" and what isn't. But, I am a rule follower, and I would rather be safe than sorry. Eating something that is possibly risky would stress me out more than stressing about what is safe. 
What I miss: Nothing right now!
What I am looking forward to: Looking pregnant
Oh! And This: We told a few more people this weekend! Amy was over helping for our Pumpkin Day before everyone got there. I said, "Oh, look at this. Which one should I buy for next summer for when I am gardening and at Family Fest?" (Family Fest is the fair at our church and Amy and I chair the ice cream booth). She look confused a second. I said, "For me! So I can still garden and stuff next summer!" Then she started crying! =)

(These are just random pictures. I don't know what kind I want yet!)

Her mom (my "Aunt" Judy) got there (luckily) before too many people so I was able to tell her too! I showed her the ultrasound picture on my phone and said, "I don't know if you can see this, but I wanted to show you!" It was really fun to tell them
