How Far Along: 10 weeks - double digits!
Baby is the Size of a: Prune (1 and 1/4 inches)
Total Weight Change: -2 lbs (I gained 3 lbs very quickly during the first few weeks but have since lost that plus 2 more.)
Showing Yet?: No but the bloat is certainly making itself known. Should still be a couple more weeks before my uterus is up and over my pelvis
Maternity Clothes?: Not yet but pants are starting to get tight by the end of the day
Stretch Marks?: No new ones
Sleep: Not so great most nights. I am having some hip pain. I've also really increased my water intake so getting up to pee 3-4 times per night and then laying awake nauseous isn't helping matters.
Symptoms: Nausea and a little puking (but not too much!), food aversions, tired, heartburn
Food Cravings/Aversions: I am having aversions to most foods. I eat a lot of english muffins, dry cereal and oyster crackers. Really the only craving is mashed potatoes and often sweet things like cakes/pastries. I really hope I'll be able to eat vegetables and meat again soon.
Miss Anything?: Being able to eat a full meal without wanting to hurl partway through; Not feeling winded after minor activity; Getting through the day without needing a nap
Mood: Pretty steady most of the time (Except this morning when I started crying while sitting in the OB waiting room. I think I was just overwhelmed because the last time I was there it was under very bad circumstances.)
Best Moment of the Week: 2 of them! (1) Getting a nausea survival pack in the mail from the awesome ttuprincess :-D and (2) Having my OB intake appt this morning. I am officially a patient there again and my prenatal care has now started :-)
Upcoming Appointments: Next Friday is my first actual OB appt. It was the earliest they could get me in so they scheduled me with whomever was available. I found out today that it happens to be the same midwife I saw when I was PG with Petey. I have very mixed feelings about that but I don't want to wait any longer so I'm not going to call to request a change.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Hearing baby's heartbeat again in one week! It can't come fast enough. I need reassurance, dammit!
Randoms: Today I found out I am indeed considered high-risk due to my history and will be seeing MFM. I don't really know how that changes anything besides the fact that my regular doctor will now be a specialist just in case, and that I will be offered the Harmony test to check for risk of Downs and the Trisomys so that's good news I guess. They still won't be able to do anything different for me in regards to seeing if there's a neural tube defect (which is what I'm really concerned about) so, whatever. Today's appt was good though. I was feeling so much anxiety sitting in that waiting room again (and my sky-high blood pressure certainly reflected it!) but the appt itself was good. The nurse I met with was wonderful and had been fully prepped on my history so I didn't have to explain anything. It was a good appt and my BP was back down to normal when she checked again at the end of the hour.
Next hurdle is in one week when I see my old midwife again! Hopefully that will be okay.
