10 weeks!

I can't believe I am 10 weeks already!!!
Baby's arms and legs are so much longer now! I will have to post the ultrasound video when Nick and I get it on our computer. Dr. A got some good views. I am so overwhelmed with joy after each ultrasound :)

How far along: 10w1d, measuring 10w3d.
Total weight gain/loss: None
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of a prune. {34.8mm}

Maternity Clothes: I am wearing bigger/baggier shirts as much as possible. My skinny jeans are pretty uncomfortable around my waist now. I tried using the BeBand, but my pants slip down so I am sticking to my one bigger pair of jeans.
Sleep: I am sleeping well. I typically fall asleep on the couch every day between 7pm and 8pm.
Movement: Not yet. I can't wait!
Food cravings: Soup, salad (yay for veggies!), bread, Sour Patch Kids, smoothies, waffles, peanut butter & honey sandwiches, tortilla chips, and rice.
Food aversions: Meat
Gender: We want to do an elective gender scan. Most places do them between 15 and 16 weeks {early February}. We are so excited to find out!
Symptoms: Nausea and dry heaving, mostly in the evenings. Fatigue. Emotional. Headaches. Vivid dreams.
Best moment this week: The four days off over the weekend. When you aren't feeling good, it's great to stay home and relax. And finish The Hunger Games :)
What I am looking forward to: Seeing baby again. I am also excited to get started on our home projects. I will share some nursery inspiration in another post.

I had my first OB appointment on Friday. It felt so strange to be a regular patient again. I loved my OB! I was thrilled about that. I also scheduled my NT scan for January 20th. I am looking forward to getting some good views of our little sour patch kid. I have just one {or maybe two?} more ultrasounds with my RE and then I graduate. It's definitely bittersweet, as I love Dr. A and his nurses. I also stop the progesterone at 12 weeks. I can't wait to be done with those messy things, not to mention being off exercise and sex restrictions. Yay for good news, all around. I am beginning to feel like I can really enjoy this pregnancy :)



  1. Awesome news! I love that picture--so cute! Oh, and the second I read "sour patch" I realized how much I want them lol. Off to the store I go!

  2. Love the picture!! yay for getting off progesterone soon. I agree that stuff is messy. Im already gonna guess your having a boy!! Hopefully they will guess at the NT scan Jan 20th!
