10 Week Update

I am 10 weeks and 2 days along. I am still waiting to feel the baby. Yes, yes, I know it's too early. But I can wish right? My symptoms around this time are:

1. Fatigue
2. Bad skin
3. Burping
4. Aversions to milk, potatoes, bananas and sugary stuff. (That last one is the hardest.)

All you pregnant or previously pregnant women get ready to throw something at me.

I haven't had ANY morning sickness. None. I am even worried because I am afraid it is a bad thing. Of all the people in the world I felt sure I would have it. Trust me I am usually a big puker. Boats, foul smells, swallowing toothpaste. It all used to set me off. I've got nothing. My midwife appt. is this week and I'm going to ask for an ultrasound. I haven't seen Peanut in 4 weeks. I need the comfort of seeing the heartbeat right now. There is no way I can wait until 15 weeks.
