Wow, pregnancy really takes it out of you doesn't it?! I went to the Bon Jovi concert last night and it was fantastic! It's the second concert of his I have been to in the last 3 years (I'm a big fan!) and I had a blast. I wouldn't be surprised if our baby comes out familiar with the tunes after a night of singing, screaming and woohooing! I'm soooooo tired today though. We were home by 12am but I feel like I have been awake all night and run a marathon to boot.

The MS is FINALLY starting to ease off now (or so it seems anyway!) which I was stoked about UNTIL it occurred to me that not having morning sickness too bad anymore could be a bad sign? And then I had a little freak out! But I think I am just learning to manage it better and I am 10 weeks tomorrow which is about the stage I believe your HCG levels start to drop so hopefully that is all it is. We have two weeks until our 12 week scan and I am absolutely impatient to get to that day and see our little baby squirming away in there with a strong healthy heartbeat.

I've really popped now too, it's becoming impossible to hide the bump unless I wear very baggy tops and I tried on some pants last night with the intention of wearing them to the concert only to find they were VERY tight. Like, wear them at your own risk and split them type tight around the waistline. And my jacket that I practically live in won't do up across my belly without stretching (not a good look!) and yet another jacket won't do up across my bustline (huh?!). I brought some new tops but they make my bump very prominent and I want to wait until that 12 week scan before wearing it proudly at work as I don't want to have to explain to my clients at work if something were to go wrong (which it won't!) but you know . . . so some very strategic outfits will need to come into play over the next couple of weeks!

13 more sleeps!!


  1. Nothing to worry about- 10 weeks is exactly when my morning sickness eased off after starting at 6 weeks, and the extreme tiredness I was feeling had mostly gone by 12 weeks. I was actually feeling quite normal going into the 4th month, with the MS gone I hardly felt pregnant at all until my bump got bigger!

    Kudos for making it through the concert- I don't think I could have done it, my legs just wouldn't hold me up for that long in 1st tri- I'm a bit older than you though, maybe that's why. Good luck at your first scan!

  2. I'm so glad you had a great time at the concert! Two weeks 'til the next scan seems so long - why in IF is everything broken up into two week waits? So glad the morning sickness is getting better!

  3. Can we see a bump shot? :)
