10 weeks now

Well, I made it to 10 weeks today. So hard to believe. Yes, I've had a hard time believing that it's been 3 weeks since my last appointment and I had proof that the baby is still alive and kicking. Just one more week to go! I actually have decided to not worry all the time, and believe and pray and hope everything is fine.

The funny thing is how I ushered in the 10th week... With a lovely vomiting session this morning. The apple and tums really sat wrong with me. Although I didn't like it, I was secretly kind of glad to have had real morning sickness (no boats needed). This has been my worst day in terms of not being able to be vertical or walking around for very long. Unfortunately, my cat's completely out of food, so I absolutely have to go to the grocery later tonight. I think I can, just not right now.

I did buy a doppler, but it's not a great quality one, so I'm never 100% sure what I'm hearing (my heartbeat or the baby's). I have only tried 3 times with it, and I'm just going to wait until the doctor tries next week with their doppler. Then I'll know exactly what it sounds like.

Yes, I still am tempted to worry a lot about how this is going or will turn out, but I do not want to be consumed by it or driven by it. I'm trying to maintain a good balance. And so far, I have nothing to give me cause to worry. I just can't wait for next week's appt! (June 2nd)

Anyway, there's been some great news in the blogosphere with both Sam and JJ getting great betas... And with Glenna getting her son home... And Elaine 6wks along... And Chris getting a potential match.... And lots of sadness too with Andrea and Baby Dreams getting negative IUI betas... Anyway, click over and offer some words if you get a chance.

10 weeks - wow! Sorry about the vomiting, that really sucks. I never got a doppler, but the first time the Dr used it on me, I was shocked at how low she put it. Try WAY below your belly button -- close to your pubic bone. It was surprising to me. Good luck!

Thanks for the recognition!

Apples and tums... that doesn't sound like a good combination under any circumstance, let alone pregnancy!

Elaine said...

Thanks for the love. I am glad to see you are doing well. I hope the m/s eases off some in the coming days.

I keep debating whether to get a doppler. So far I have resisted, but the idea has become increasingly appealing.

Hey girl, just stopping by to say Happy 10 weeks!

Sorry I'm just stopping by to comment...I just got my computer back this weekend. I'm excited to catch up on how everyone is doing, you being one of them. :) I'm happy to hear that everything is going well.

Praying for you and that sweet baby!
