10 weeks

Gosh, I can't believe I'm already 10 weeks.  Things continue to go well.  I had an ultrasound this week and the baby is growing very rapidly.  S/he is already measuring 11 weeks, 2 days, a full week ahead (I'm 10 weeks, 3 days today).  You can see a big difference in the ultrasound compared to last week.  In the top left picture, the baby's head is to the left and its hands are in front of its face!  Due to the quick growth, they wanted to push up my NT scan from January 9 to sometime next week, however the fertility doc has no openings next week.  So, I may see if my regular OB can do it.  My NT scan will be my last appt with the RE!  I'll see my regular OB for the first time on Thursday.  I still can't believe this is real.

As far as symptoms go, I'm feeling pretty good.  I've had passing nausea, but nowhere near the point of vomiting.  I've been very lucky.  I'm not showing yet and am still in regular clothes, though they are getting a bit tighter.  I bought a belly band yesterday, as well as a new bra from the maternity store.  It was weird to buy a nursing bra!  I'm glad I did, though, as it's a better fit and very supportive.  
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wishing you all the best for the New Year.  I really, really appreciate all your support, cheerleading and good wishes!



  1. WOW! It's a real baby with little hands and feet (or an earless teddy bear). : ) So exciting...

  2. 10 weeks! Wow!

    I think that is neat that the RE or OB does the NT scan. I had to see a peri for mine, and I hate the new doctor process.

  3. Awesome pics, it sure does look like a baby at 10 weeks. Each week it changes so much!
