I am 10 weeks exactly today. The lack of symptoms has been a little worrisome but I’ve been trucking along. I’m exhausted and go to bed around 9 every night and I sleep through the night except to get up and go to the bathroom once or twice. I’ve had several awful headaches at night as well but I have had little to no morning sickness. Occasionally I get nauseous when I’m super hungry but that’s about it.
So today I went in for my ultrasound. I had flown on a plane last week and was nervous about this week. Sitting in the room made me start getting nervous. When the doctor came in he came in with my nurse and a student. My husband and I looked at each other. The last time a student came in for an ultrasound it was when I found out about my loss and I think the girl was as devastated as we were.
This time we didn’t need to worry. As soon as he got the probe in we saw the baby…and it was dancing! I mean, the babies feet were really going in there! I started laughing and my husband was smiling. It was so cute. Then he focused in on the head and baby was sucking its thumb! This kid is going to be like me because I’m always on the go and was a huge thumb sucker (just check out my overbite).
We listened to the heartbeat again and it was at 163 beats per minute and was measuring right at 10 weeks. SO things looked good! This was my last official appointment with my RE’s office which made me sad. However, I still have to go back for at least one more, if not two, infusions.
My infusion today was fine. My arm is a little sore and red but otherwise it went fine. The nurses were so nice and they all came in to tell us how cute our baby was 🙂 SO all and all it was a great appointment.
Next appointment is on Monday at the OB office! We’ll be meeting our new OB/gyn since we need someone attached to the hospital in that area. I like my current OB/gyn but do not like our hospital in town so we won’t be delivering here.
