Sorry, no photo this week. BUT I am definitely getting a small baby bump. For me, I am definitely showing a little faster than I did with Brayden, but it is still not noticeable to people who don’t know. Does that make sense? In one word? Awkward.
How far along?: 10w1d
How big is baby?: The size of a kumquat.
Weight gain/loss?: Since I haven’t been to the doctor again, we will say 0. I go Thursday.
Stretch marks?: None.
Maternity clothes?: I prefer my yoga pants to jeans right now, but I am not wearing maternity exclusively and I hope not to be for quite a while yet.
Sleep?: Yes, please. I am sleeping pretty well.
Food cravings?: Water, McDonald’s sausage biscuit, chips.
Movement?: Not yet!
Belly button?: Nothing new there either!
What are you looking forward to this week?: Going to our appointment this week and God willing, hearing a precious healthy heartbeat!
From BabyCenter: Although he’s barely the size of a kumquat – a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby now has completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature. If you could take a peek inside your womb, you’d spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.
The nausea is hit or miss, but when it hits, it is pretty awful. Thankfully, it tends to only last until lunch time with some reappearances in the evenings. I have insomnia once in a great while in the middle of the night, but other than that, so far so good! I can’t wait for our appointment!
