Week 10...... The size of a prune
I can't believe it was 5 weeks ago that I wrote my first blog entry! Reading back on it I can see I was scared, anxious and not really dealing with the whole thing. 10 weeks down the track and I am feeling much better, I've found a lot more support, done a lot more reading and am feeling much more comfortable with the whole process of pregnancy.
We had our first ultrasound a few weeks ago and my partner and I were astonished to see & hear our little guy or gals heart beating at 160bpm! It's pretty incredible! We have our NT scan booked in next week and we both can't wait to see whats happening in there!
Most of you wont want to hear this but I have been incredibly lucky, I haven't had any morning sickness at all, it doesn't make sense to me because every woman on both sides of my family that has ever been pregnant has been as sick as a dog! I really psyched myself into it and it didn't happen so I am counting my lucky stars.
I had a bit of indigestion during week 6-7 but since then nothing to write home about. I am always hungry but nothing really appeals to me and I spend most of my time forcing myself to eat. The main symptoms I've had are extreme tiredness... honestly if I didnt have to go to work I'd sleep 16 hours a day. My boobs are huge & so extremely sore & sensitive - they were already pretty big pre-pregnancy but seriously please stop growing! The other problem I've had is headaches... about 3pm everyday until I go to sleep. I think this is probably the heaviness of my boobs hurting my neck and causing headaches but I'm waiting just a little longer before I buy new bras before I test this theory out
As for the rest, it's almost time for us to make the big announcement to our worlds, the nearest and dearest - parents on each side and our best buddies all know but to everyone else its going to be a surprise. I'm really excited!
Anyway, I'll blog again after my NT scan, if there are any newly pregnant women out there who need advice or want to chat, please feel free to message me or comment, it was a really big adjustment for me during the first 7-8 weeks and if there are people out there that need support, I'd love to help.
Until next time
