10 weeks = Kumquat?????

So I just read that our darling, sweet, alien looking baby is the size of a Kumquat now at 10 weeks!! Yeah, your growing!! However, someone please tell me, what the heck is a Kumquat? It sounds terrible and I am almost offended that that is what my baby is being compared to. Yes, maybe I'm a little over protective, but give me a break there are a lot of hormones going on here. Things have been a little crazy since I last posted that we were expecting...I took a trip to San Diego to become a fitness instructor for an oraganization call Stroller Strides. Killed myself there working out like crazy for four days straight while dealing with early pregnancy nausea and fatigue. Came back sick with "the" flu and was down for another week and am now slowly starting to feel better, but I could honestly sleep myself through the rest of the first trimester. Please just wake me up when I'm supposed to start feeling "normal" again. Also, I know I knew in the back of my head that you tend to show earlier the more pregnancies you have, but seriously come on, my pants haven't fit for about three weeks, but I refuse to go get mat. pants yet and so I've been wearing sweat pants and work out pants, t-shirts and sweatshirts and let me tell you I look lovely!! My only wish is that if your going to show earlier with each pregnancy then make it an actual baby bump and not just jelly roll.
Brian has been "Super Dad" through the last three or four weeks! He is just everything...he took care of the girls while I was San Diego, then took care of all of us when I was sick, kept the house clean, the laundry done, and started to build a work out room in our garage. I'm so blessed to have him, but at the same time he has put me to shame. I feel like being a mom takes a lot of work and at times is hard, and he swoops in and is like what's so hard about this? Maybe that is just my insecurities talking because he is amazing and helped out soooo much...Thanks babe!!
The girls are good and are very much looking forward to Halloween!! I don't know if Hailee will let us get her in her costume, but we'll try. Chloe is going to be a Fairy Princess and it's the first time I've let her get a costume that is very thin in fabric and so we will have a fun time getting warm clothes underneath it. I'm sure that will lead to some sort of squabble.
We'll get some Halloween pictures up this weekend and I will post belly pictures as soon as the belly looks like a pregnant one and not just FAT!!

I hope you start feeling better soon and that you guys had fun last night. My third pregnancy was pretty bad, I started feeling sick at 7 weeks and it lasted pretty much the whole pregnancy. Luckily I have a great hubby too to pick up the I think they like to make it look easy so we don't worry they need since growing a baby isn't always easy. :)

Dawn my dear I'm sure you look hot as ever! You need to post baby pics and rock your pregnancy! You are on baby #3 so you can't compare. Just yesterday I had a girl write me on facebook telling me she is 18 weeks too, but she still fits in her regular jeans. Wtf? Who says that? Ahh the constant weight battle even when you are pregnant, it's great huh:) So I say Show us what you're working with and love that you are prego with #3!

I'm sure all moms would agree that
morning sickness week four through six is the toughest pregnancy symptom. Just imagine daily episodes of nausea and vomiting. Good news is that its completely manageable using simple home remedies along with simple lifestyle changes. All you need to do is find one that will work on your body.
