Week September 29 – October 5
How far along am I?
How big is the baby?
The size of a blueberry.
How much weight have I gained?
How am I sleeping?
I’m sleeping ok, but I’m having these really really weird dreams! They kinda freak me out and most of the time have nothing to do with the baby, but are just super weird!
My best moment this week
Getting my third ultrasound on October 3rd! It was the most amazing feeling ever! GOD IS SO GOOD! We got to see our “little peanut” as the ultrasound tech called him/her and we even saw the heartbeat flickering away. The heart rate was 128 BPM which the tech said was good and strong. We are so thankful and glad that the previous doctor was WRONG! I am so glad I found the blog and forum The Misdiagnosed Miscarriage. That site truly gave me hope even though the previous doctor told me there was no need for hope. There is ALWAYS hope…you should always hope and have faith if you believe in God and don’t let anyone tell you any different. I’m glad I had hope and didn’t just give up on my baby and cause damage to the baby that could have very well led me to having a miscarriage because I would’ve been so stressed and feeling doomed that I could have made my body make that happen. I’m glad I have a husband that is super strong and there for me through this trying time. I thank God that he was there with us both holding us tight while we kept telling the devil to go away with his negative energy. I’m just so very thankful!
Do I miss anything?
I miss feeling just fine. Lately I have been feeling HORRIBLE! But it’s ok…it’s all worth it.
Nothing really yet…all food smells pretty strong and gross to me unfortunately. Fruit seems to be fine though.
What am I eating?
This week I have ate yogurt, cereal, broth, blueberry muffins, lasagna (only took like two bites, yuck), chicken wings, steak, mashed potatoes, rice, pizza, peaches, oranges, and strawberries.
How do I feel?
I feel HORRIBLE just HORRIBLE. I keep telling my husband that there has to be a little Jordy Jr. in there because “he” is giving me hell! Haha. I have thrown up 4xs this week. I also had to take a sick day from work because I threw up right before heading out the door to work so I was like naaaaah won’t be seeing me today. Thankfully my midwife gave me some pills for my nausea. I hope they work because I hate feeling sick and throwing up. Jordy keeps calling me a zombie and that’s exactly what I feel like. All I wanna do is sleep so I don’t feel like I have to throw up or actually throw up. Ugh.
Have I started to show yet:
I think it’s just bloat 🙂
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
I’m more happy now because of the good news that my baby is just fine!
What am I looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to my next appointment which is October 31st and I’ll be 11 weeks and almost out of the first trimester! Hopefully I will get to actually hear the baby’s heartbeat at that appointment.
