10 weeks and counting

I am 10 weeks pregnant and counting. Jacob and I found out after we returned from Montreal in February which explains why there are no pictures of our trip. I have been a little distracted since the news. It was sort of a surprise but not really. We are excited and can't wait to meet the little one.

I have been pretty lucky so far, the only symptoms I have experienced are tiredness, heart burn and over emotional. No sickness thank goodness because it would stink to feel nauseated all the time. I am sure Jacob is more effected by my symptoms than me :) He has been terrific and really supported and involved. We have gone to the Dr's twice and even got an early sonogram. It was really fantastic to see the heartbeat.

As I said I am 10 weeks along and according to, our baby is the size of a kumquat and has completed the most crucial part of his/her development. My clothes are becoming a little more snug but I don't "look" pregnant yet which is kind of strange.

We are trying to stay on our workout schedule since I am allowed to workout as I did before I became prego. I defiantly do not have the energy to run the treadmill like I want to so I usually run/walk or use the elliptical walker. I have read up on exercising during pregnancy and most articles or doctors say that is is better for building endurance for the actual labor. We will see, I am just trying to stay mobile so I don't get out of the routine of going to the gym.

Here is the 1st picture of the little one, the next one will be in a few weeks.
