I am glad I am keeping a blog because I need to remind myself that while I feel bad for a day or two (or three), it doesn't last. Week 9 was rough, for sure, but I am halfway through week 10 and my appetite is better. I still feel a little nausea around bedtime, but it is after dinner. I feel great for the most part.
I do believe some of this is due to the fact that I now have plenty of time to rest since I only teach two nights a week. I have been getting upwards of 9 hours of sleep every night, and I hate to admit it, but I have also been taking the occasional afternoon nap. That's right folks, I have turned into a three month old baby. I eat, sleep, and then eat and sleep. Fortunately, no one needs to change my diaper.
I have to wait until June 30th to get another peek inside my uterus. I can't wait to see how these little China Dolls are growing. Even better, the parents are coming for a visit too. They get to see their babies for the first time!!!
I am so excited that I will get to see my IPs again.
My pregnancy: 10 weeks, 3 days.
The China Dolls are just over an inch long. They are about the size of a kumquat. What's a kumquat??? I think it's like a tiny orange. Another website says a small strawberry. Since I spent a few weeks not eating anything but strawberries, I can relate to that. Two small strawberries in a grapefruit sized uterus. They have arms, legs, earbuds, eyes with eyelids sealed shut. They are little people.
Nothing really to report right now. No bleeding, no cramps, only a few light twinges of the uterus. Other than feeling fatigue- which is different than simply being tired in the mental cloudiness and all over weakness I have felt- there is really nothing more to tell right now.
