Week 10 Updates:
Maternity Clothes- Well... I bought a pair but my hips & butt dont hold them up quite yet... I'm such an awkard -inbetween- real/materninty clothes
Sleep- for the most part good. This week was OOBER stressful @ school * one day (thurs?) I came home & fell asleep sitting up @ 7:30pm- I slept till 11:30pm and was up until about 12:30am- I fell back asleep & slept thru the night!
Best Moment of the week: Tuesday (March 8) we saw our lil baby again and got an awesome report. "Everything looks perfect!!" Baby looks more like a baby & has grown a TON in just 4 weeks! (also talked to office mgr about issues w/office not being very responsive & told them we were thinking of finding a new doc...)... they addressed issue- very apologetic- let us talk to nurse & we ended up with a FREE gender check screening @ 16 weeks (if we dont find out before then) :) &
being 2 months along-- starting my 3rd month tomorrow!
Movement-- baby has started moving! I feel nothing yet!
Food cravings- salt & vinegar chips, pickles, icecream
Gender- everyone is saying boy! Grandaddy siad "he"! Leslie P also thinks boy ... so I'll go with boy? ha.
Weekly Wisdom- Drink lots of H20! & eat often... I can't seem to drink enough & I'm always hungry!
Your baby in Week 10:
Your baby (now the size of a prune) has small indentations on his legs (soon to be knees and ankles!), and his tiny arms even have elbows that bend (how is that for magical?). Inside that little mouth, tiny buds of baby teeth are forming under the gums. His stomach and kidneys are kicking into gear, producing digestive juices and urine, and if it's a boy, his testes are making testosterone (how manly!).
Your body in Week 10:
All clogged up? For many moms-to-be, those pesky pregnancy hormones cause the smooth muscles of the large bowel to fall down on the job — they get sluggish and you get constipated. Whole grains and veggies can help, as can drinking lots of water and exercising regularly. You might also be coping with headaches and newly visible veins as your body's blood supply ramps up (it'll increase by 20 to 40 percent over the course of your pregnancy!).
