10 Weeks

We had our 1st ultrasound on Monday night! I was so, so nervous about it. With both of the other kids I had had an ultrasound before 10 weeks which was reassuring. I was so worried they were going to tell me the baby passed away or wasn't healthy/growing that I had Chris come with me to the appointment. I know this is silly, but I feel more worried with each child. I feel like I got "lucky" the 1st two times around and that my luck is bound to run out. I couldn't even talk/read in the waiting room I was so anxious!

The ultrasound revealed that everything was fine. A healthy 10 wk baby moving all around :) No pictures since they only use a portable machine. Bad news is that I didn't gain any weight (no big shocker since I can't keep anything down). My doctor prescribed Zoflan to help. I've never tried anti-nausea meds (can you tell I'm a worrier??). If it doesn't pass by 12 weeks, I'm going to give it a try. So far all of my symptoms seem to be the same as the last two times. The only difference is the night sickness. Never had night sickness with Christopher or Andrew. I've also been craving fruity things (candy, Jello, fruit). With Christopher and Andrew I wanted pickles, meat, salty snacks and chocolate. Anyway, just a little update on the little one.

  2. o how exciting!!!

    I worried about taking something for my morning sickness to so I would cut the tablets into quarters and take one slice first thing in the morning...seemed to help! (or maybe it was psychological)

  5. Like you, I'm not big into the meds. I think about whether or not I'll have morning sickness and wonder how it'll effect my being able to work. LoL we've had so many new momma nurses puking their guts out in the nearest trashcans at work. One was even hospitalzied for hyper-emesis and needed IV's to rehydrate. Once they take the Zofran they are fine, able to eat and feeling well. Every single one of them has delivered happy, healthy babies-every single one. When my time comes, I believe I will take the Zofran. Not saying you have to, but just thought it wouldn't hurt to try and help ease your mind. Praying for grace, strength and energy!

  6. I have to agree with another poster: Perhaps sweet cravings show signs of "sugar and spice and everything nice" on the way! I'm glad everything went well today and prayers for more of the same. :)

  7. Honey, you remind me of my mom! She got worse and worse sickness with each kid and by the time she had Bonnie, she didn't gain a pound for the first 12 weeks. Then with the blink of an eye, everything passed and she started packing on the pounds. The doctor even told her to stop taking prenatal vitamins because they made the sickness even worse and she was able to keep some food down when she didn't take them.
    You will be fine, the baby will be fine and all the sickness will pass (easy to say for someone whom has never had it, but has only witnessed thier mom a few times).
    Best of luck! You are in my prayers!!
