10 Weeks (plus a day)

10 Weeks Pregnant

Weight: +2.0 lbs from starting weight (107.0)

Symptoms: tired, the morning sickness is getting better though

How I am Feeling: fat

Best Thing about Pregnancy: We heard the baby’s heartbeat today.

Worst Thing about Pregnancy: Telling my family was disappointing. Lacey and Morgan are both very happy, but I think it will take Mom and Dad some time to get use to the idea.

What I am Looking Forward to this Week: I have an ultrasound scheduled for next Wednesday. That is really exciting.

I had a doctor’s appointment today. My old doctor didn’t send the blood results to my new doctor to confirm the pregnancy. When the nurse scheduled the appointment, she said they would just do blood work. Instead, my new doctor decided to use the doppler to confirm the pregnancy. She tried the right side first and didn't hear anything. Dan came and held my hand when she started on the left side and I silently prayed to hear the heart. It was the most wonderful sound! Dan and I were both over the moon today.

Week 10: Prune
With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will too.)
