How Far Along?
10 weeks !!!
How Big Is The Little One?
The baby is the size of a prune !
Total Weight Gain / Loss?
I have lost 2 pounds since last week.
I can still wear my normal clothing but I did buy six pair of maternity skinny jeans and capris.
I am very tired all the time so I am sleeping pretty much all night.
Best Moment of the Week?
I had two appointments this week and got to see the baby, which now looks like a baby instead of a little bird. The baby is growing right on target and has a strong heartbeat.
I have felt “growing pains’ and pressure, which I learned is the result of a fibroid tumor in utero and is adjacent to the placenta. The high risk doc will monitor it throughout the pregnancy. I also learned that I am severely anemic again. A pregnant friend suggested I try Geritol tonic or SSS tonic for the quickest results. I went to Walgreens today and picked up a bottle of the Geritol tonic. It is not the most pleasant taste, but I need my baby to get sufficient iron and I do not need my fibroid to steal blood supply from the baby, so I will drink the tablespoon daily. I did find a fruit punch flavored liquid iron at a health food store today too and I am ordering Hema Plex to start taking after my iron levels rise to normal.
This week, I was craving chicken noodle soup, fried pork chops, and salad from Olive Garden. I just had a taste for pork fried rice so I am heading out to PF Chang in a few minutes. I only eat a few bites of anything.
I am not feeling salty foods or sweet foods. For some reason, everything is overly salty to me. The only thing that seems to help my morning sickness is Pepsi/ Coke / Mountain Dew !
I had my MaterniT21 test on Thursday, so I will know in 2 weeks. Still hoping for a girl…
What I Miss?
What I Am Looking Forward To?
Feeling the baby move.
With this fibroid growing, I do have a little baby bump or little pouch.
I am ordering my Stokke Xplory in Black Melange tonight from Saks Fifth Avenue through a friend who works there so that I can get 40% off !
