How far along: 9+1…a day late this week, which actually isn’t bad considering the week I’ve had
How big is baby: Size of a pecan, about 1 inch long
IVF meds: 1.5mL of Progesterone and .25mL of Delestrogen Mon/Fri Low dose aspirin and prenatals
Symptoms: still low grade nausea pretty much all day. Sometimes it ramps up a bit. If it does walking on the treadmill tends to help at least a little. Honestly it’s the best I’ve felt at this point in a pregnancy so I’m hesitant to complain, but not feeling 100% and having no foods sound good can be kind of exhausting. I’m still thankful that this little one has been kind to me in the nausea department. I’ve been pretty tired too, but I’ve also been a pregnant, single, stay at home mom since last weekend so that’s probably compounding the exhaustion.
Sleep: I told my husband that when he gets home I’m probably going to want to spend all of Sunday in bed, like literally all.day.long. That was before he hurt himself so I don’t think I’ll be doing that now….all that to say, yes I want sleep….a lot of it
Food cravings? not a lot, mostly aversions. Sometimes I crave apples which I’ve never had a craving for before. Yesterday I devoured a piece of cold fried chicken and it was the most delicious thing ever LOL
Anything making you queasy or sick? letting my stomach get empty, eating too much, not walking on the treadmill at least 20 min a day
Happy or moody? My patience has been a bit short this last week by the end of the day. It’s just from hormones and exhaustion so I’m trying to cut myself some slack.
Best moment of the week? Watching my son’s soccer games last weekend. He had so much fun and it was great to see him enjoying it.
Next appointment: I have an ultrasound and blood work next Wed. 11/13. Fingers crossed baby is still growing and happy in there!
