Pregnancy Week 10: Weekly Recap, Cravings, and Symptoms


Week 10

This week I had my first official OB appointment.  I went last week and had all of my blood draw ahead of time.  All of the results of the blood work were normal except that I am borderline anemic, which is normal for me.  I have loaded up my diet with foods high in iron because my body has an intolerance to iron.  

This ultrasound was done at exactly 10 weeks.  My sweet tiny person danced through the entire ultrasound.  It was so amazing to watch.  His little hands and feet were moving back and forth.  It actually looked like he waved to us too.  The doctor said he's very active.  =) 

His heart beat was strong and both of our vitals were good.  I had gained 2 pounds since my 7 week visit, but I have since lost it.  I'm pretty sure it was water weight.  I was so thirsty the night before and the morning of my appointment that I drank a ton of water.  

I go back to the doctor at 16 weeks but won't know the sex of the baby until around 20 weeks.  I didn't want to find out the sex this time around, but my husband is insisting on it.  


Symptoms:
I still have morning sickness but it is getting better.  I have good days and bad days but for the most part it is getting better daily.
I still have a headache.
This week I have a backache but I've had no other cramping.
I have started to noticed more round ligament pains.
Peanut Butter makes me sick every time I eat it! You'd think I would stop eating it but I want it so bad!

Cravings:
Fruit
Vegetables
Basically, I want to eat fresh food.

Thanks for reading!!
