I am 10 weeks and 2 days pregnant today. I am feeling pretty good as of right now. I have had some rough patches the past few weeks so I’m happy that today is a good day. For about two months now I have been sick. Not throwing up, but sick to my stomach ALL day and night! On top of that I have been extremely fatigued which makes it very hard to take care of my son. So last week I was kinda depressed from being so sick. I couldn’t really play with my son, or clean my house, or run errands. I just wanted to sit and not move. My husband started a paramedic program over a month ago so he is NEVER around. He is so busy with school and work I never see him. So that was getting me down on top of everything else, and I started questioning why I chose to put myself through all this. Needless to say, I remembered quickly why! I thought about the parents and all the happy moments I have already witnessed them having with this pregnancy and it quickly cheered me up. No one ever said this was going to be easy, I knew it wouldn’t be. I hit my low point and I’m back on the other side of it feeling strong and excited again. I am over 10 weeks now so I imagine very soon I will feel back to normal. Less tired and less sick.
Other than that, things have been going well. According to my “What to Expect Pregnancy Tracker” the baby is the size of a lime. I am starting to show a little. I mainly just look like I have been eating too many doughnuts. LOL! I’m bloated a lot so it’s not something that is noticeable yet. I had lost a few pounds from being so sick but now I have gained them back. So total weight gain since the pregnancy started is 2 pounds. I think that’s good… I guess it is a good idea to have a goal weight gain in mind. I will talk to my doctor when I see her next but for now I will go with 25 pounds. I really hope I can stay in that range. I gained a lot of weight with my first pregnancy, and it was so hard to get it off again.
I have some great news also! My brother and sister-in-law had a baby girl on October 14th! I am so excited about my new niece! Next week I won’t be posting because I will be with them helping out with the new baby.
I guess that is all I have tonight. Oh, one more thing! My husband, son and I are going to the parents house in a few weeks to have dinner. They will meet my son for the first time. I’m very excited for that! I really hope I feel better by then so I can eat with them.
