We're 10 weeks today and today is the last day for my PIO injections!! WOOHOO!!!
Here's a quick rundown of what's going on this week:
How I'm feeling: I'm still pretty nauseated and these past few days I have had more vomiting than days prior. (Sorry if TMI) I sure hope that doesn't mean this all day sickness will last past the 1st trimester! I'm also pretty exhausted most days; I come home from work and crash! I'm very lucky to have such a great hubby, kids and family; they've been taking up ALL of my slack. I seriously owe them!
What I eat: At this point I base my "meals" off of what won't taste gross when it comes back up. Pitiful, I know. Some days I feel like I can eat any and everything, then others I feel like I can barely choke down a cracker. I've been eating a lot of small meals throughout the day since my stomach can't seem to handle a "regular" meal. Mostly eating fresh fruit, crackers, oatmeal, toast, & rice. My cravings seem to change weekly...I was all about applesauce for a while, then it was fudge BombPops, and now all I want is Haagen-Dazs strawberry or raspberry sorbet! Oh, and spaghetti....I've really been craving spaghetti!
Baby stats (according to the web):
-The yolk sac will not be needed going forward as the placenta takes over.
-The placenta is now fully developed and will be the baby's lifeline going forward.
-The ears have formed the outer portion but still need to move upward into their final position.
-The umbilical cord exchanges blood between the placenta and the baby.
-The wrists are now able to bend.
-The fingers & toes have grown and separated.
-The intestines are developing at the base of the umbilical cord.
Baby is about the size of a strawberry during week 10.
LENGTH: 1.20 in / 3 cm
WEIGHT: 0.13 oz / 3.7 g
We have an ultrasound on Friday morning and I should be released to go to my regular OB after that. I'll keep you updated and hopefully have a new pic to post of the lil' peanut.
