Bump day week 10!

It’s week ten everybody!! According to my babycenter app, rainbow is the size of a kumquat (whatever that is) and is now in the fetal stage! This week has been about the same. Symptoms: acid reflux, hunger pains, pee a lot, thirsty, tired, food aversions, sleepless nights, stretchy cramps, stuffy nose, sore breasts, growing breasts, hip and back pain and breathlessness. Yesterday I was exhausted when I got home from work. No clue why, it was a pretty slow day at work and I didn’t sleep any worse than normal the night before. But I laid on the couch and dozed quite a bit after 5 or 6 o’clock. So no, I didn’t write my blog yesterday. I am pretty excited that my appointment is less than a week away now! I’m sure it will be our last ultrasound until the anatomy one at 20 weeks. I can still find the heartbeat with my home doppler but it is still to faint to get a reading. I’ve started having sugar cravings and I’m trying really hard to ignore them because I’m at higher risk for gestational diabetes. I’m so scared of it because I’m also at higher risk that it will turn into actual diabetes after the baby is born.
Javier and I are planning a baby moon in the first couple weeks of April. I think it will be more like a weekend away type thing but we plan on doing a little shopping for rainbow then also. I will do a baby buys post sometime after that. I am still feeling like I want to wish this trimester away but the end is fast approaching. I think once we get to the “safe zone” I will finally be able to truly enjoy it. I really want to now but I am so afraid of letting my guard down.
I still pray for you ladies out there struggling with TTC and I can’t wait until you are pregnant too. I just want to say that I know how it may feel to some of you when you read my posts. Jealousy and anger. I’ve been there too and I know the feeling all too well. I don’t blame you for feeling the way you do and I don’t take it personal. My journey with TTC is far from over and I’m sure we will have trouble with future TTC plans and just because this round with TTC is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, the battle is over but the war is yet to be won. I’m still rooting for you ladies and I always hope the best for you!
