10 Weeks!

We are 10 weeks along... it seemed like it took forever to get to here.. :)




Here's my 10 week bumpdate:

Size of baby:  Kumquat fruit {A little over 1 inch long}

Symptoms: Still VERY tired, but naps do wonders! I also had a lot of nausea in week 9 and my doctor gave me zofran, safe to take in pregnancy. It has been amazingly helpful!

Cravings: Lots of random combinations: goldfish and strawberries was yesterday. I am starting to crave meat again, but cooking it doesn't always turn out well. I learned that eggs are a no-go... :(

Something you Miss: Being able to take Rosey outside whenever she wants, now it is SO tiring!

Milestones: Learning my blood type & having all my blood tests come back normal!

Looking Forward To: 12 weeks - we get to hear the heartbeat!

I have been going through a few pregnancy books and one in particular is a devotional. I love it! Every morning I get so excited to read it. There are SO many great truths on how we are called to pray for our children and believe God's best for them. Here is something that stood out today:

"Call to me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you do not know. (Jer 33:3) There is no telling what God may reveal to you, if you seek his face concerning this pregnancy. Why ask? Asking about your baby and receiving the answer gives you the confidence that God is with you on this journey. Oh! What a blessed assurance!"

Yes! Amen! I'm on board... ask and you shall receive has been a repetitive theme in my life. God wants us to ask for things, that is the beauty of prayer! This could apply to you wherever YOU are at... call to him, he is waiting!

awwww. These baby milestones make me all misty eyed. You have one beautiful spirit mama. (P.S. where did you get these fab sitckers??!) Take care.

Mrs. Brittany said...

You're so sweet! :) I'm sure you're nursery is going to be gorgeous!!!! :) I actually found the page that designed your blog---Kelsey's page. :) How cute!!! I wish I was more computer savvy! Maybe I'll figure out how to do it next weekend! How are you feeling? First tri can be awful for some women. It was for me :( But I'll take it! At least I'm pregnant!!! :) Praise God! The MS subsided middle of week 14. Every once in a while I'll get sick again, but nothing like before. I'm able to get out now! You're almost done with your first trimester! That's super exciting! Do you have a hunch if it's a boy or a girl?

Natalie said...

You look great!!!
Zofran IS amazing...I still take it occasionally and I'm 9 months! :) Unfortunately my dr. didn't give it to me until 20 weeks!
What a wonderful reminder and that sounds like an awesome devotional!

So cute Ria! :)

Mrs. Lukie said...

Yay for 10 weeks! You're looking cutie cutie :)

I had a tough time with eating any meat (that I cooked on my own) during the first tri AND I couldn't eat eggs either. Thankfully, both "issues" changed as soon as I hit the second tri :)

I realized I never responded to your question on FB about the cruise. No, my nausea was not any worse on the cruise--actually, oddly enough, I felt TONS better! I hope you're feeling better soon.
