PREGNANCY WEEK 10
My age: 27 (just celebrated my birthday over the weekend!)
How far along: 10 weeks
How big is baby: the size of a kumkwat (just like a little clementine)
Exercise/Activity Level: This week I exercised 4 days, which included two days of running outside. It’s so beautiful to be outside in nature and breathe in fresh air. The sun on my skin feel amazing too. I think I’m going to try to make outdoor running a regular thing again. The weather seems to be making an entrance to spring.
Maternity clothes: I was given a Belly Band this week by a good friend. I actually did wear it a couple of days over my regular pants. My pants are getting just a bit snug around the waist.
Stretch marks: None.
Belly button: Innie. I also actually took my belly button ring out. I decided it was just time.
Sleep: More of the same. I wake up every night to go to the bathroom. Also I just lie there wide awake at 2am.
Best moment of the week: Seeing our baby on the 9 week ultrasound. The baby actually LOOKS like a baby now! I could see head, body, legs, arms and a beating heart!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular. Trying to eat healthier since I don’t want to gain weight too quickly.
Food aversions: Chicken.
Symptoms: My nausea is almost 100% gone now. Thank the Lord! I’m still tired and take a lot of opportunities to lie down. This week I’ve felt growing/stretching in my utererus.
What I’m looking forward to: This week we will travel to Vegas to share our good news with Eric’s family.
What I’m nervous about: Nothing right now.
What I miss: My grandma. Grandma Annie Jane passed away unexpectedly on Saturday. It’s been a rough weekend because of that, but I know that she is with Jesus in Heaven now. I know she is so happy and at peace. I just miss her.
Next appointment: Friday, March 29th. We will have a regular ob checkup and hear the heartbeat on the fetal dopler!
