10 Weeks

10 Weeks

Doubled digits, woohoo! I can see a light at the end of the tunnel and it's called the second trimester!

This week has kind of been a mini roller coaster. The first weeks days I was actually feeling pretty good. Not 100% but not the typical all day stomach ache/nausea. When I feel good in my first trimester, then I start to worry that something is wrong. I can't just enjoy it! Well, then Saturday afternoon I did throw up again, so that was reassurance for me haha. Then in the middle of the night Saturday night after intercourse, I spotted red when going to the bathroom. I wasn't really worried and read online that it can be normal because of all the extra bloodflow. Sunday I was fine with no spotting. Monday morning when I woke up and went to the bathroom I had more red spotting. It was only a little bit, but still made me nervous. I called my Drs office and they got me in for an ultrasound to check on things. I had an absolutely amazing ultrasound tech who let us record! Baby looked perfect, including heart rate, and was moving all over the place! They measured right at 9 weeks, 6 days, which is exactly how far along I was. Dr said everything looked great and chances of miscarriage lowers drastically once they see a healthy heartbeat on ultrasound. I've had no issues since then, and not even any spotting from the ultrasound. 

I forgot to mention this last week, but it's amazing the symptoms I have had this pregnancy that I never had with the others, like excessive saliva, and a constant bad taste in my mouth. I will get these symptoms and google them to discover they're normal in pregnancy. Never had them with the others. 

So that's pretty much been my week. Still taking diclegis because of the wonders it does. Hopefully I won't need it for too much longer though. 

I had my regular check up yesterday, and she said since they did the ultrasound and she was able to find the baby's heartbeat again on the Doppler, we can just have my next appointment be for our anatomy ultrasound at 18 weeks! Since we're going to a farther dr/hospital this pregnancy (about an hour and 15 mins away) I appreciated being able to skip one of the appointments, and I am counting down the days for May 24 to find out what we are having!!! :)
