10 weeks

YAY - a new week!! I think my ovaries are finally starting to go back to normal so this week is probably going to be the closest we are going to get to a bumpless "starting point" picture.

How far along: 10 weeks! Baby is the size of a prune and will be doubling in size over the next week or so. 

Physical symptoms:  In general, I'm feeling pretty good although I'm still having nausea from time to time. Also I think "pregnancy brain" is really kicking in this week. (This morning at Dunkin Donuts - "I'm sorry what did I order? No sorry that's not what I wanted." Later - laundry goes in the dryer, dryer never gets started.)       

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  None. I'm still at my pre-IVF weight.

Maternity clothes: Not necessary. I didn't like any of the dresses I ordered either so I'll probably go shopping tomorrow.    

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: I wake up sore from time to time, but otherwise I can't really complain.

Best moment of the week: Seeing that the baby was okay on Thursday and finding his/her heartbeat on the home doppler!

Movement: Nothing that I can feel yet.

Food cravings/aversions: Carbs and lemonade are still the greatest things ever. Also, it turns out I can handle lattes - yay! Eggs are fucking disgusting.

Sex: Don't know yet.

Labor signs: Nope.

Belly button: Still in.

What I miss: Beer. I hadn't been interested in it for a while, but now that it's summer it just looks so delicious and refreshing.

What I am looking forward to: NT scan. I'm so anxious to find out if baby is looking good so far.

Milestones: All of the baby's major organs are fully formed! Baby should be twice as big by the time we see him/her again - like the size of a lime or peach I think.

10 weeks
How do people take pictures of themselves? I am wearing 4 inch heels and holding my phone in order to be high enough for my mirror. Clearly, I am not a selfie person.


  1. I love these updates :) I'm so glad you've been able to find the HB with the doppler, that must be pretty special! You're so cute, I can't wait to see your progress! And FTR, I felt like an idiot taking my first pic - also not a selfie person. Fortunately we have a full length mirror otherwise I would have no idea, I certainly don't own 4" heels! <3

  2. Yay! 10 weeks! The selfie thing is definitely awkward. I am pretty impressed with the 4" heels though! That is determination! Can't wait to "hear" all about your NT scan!

  3. I have to laugh at your pregnancy brain comment. It's not a myth! I had it throughout my pregnancy. I would be thinking of something and then all of a sudden my train of thought disappeared into the Bermuda triangle. Can't wait for your next update!
