10 weeks!

I am 10 weeks along as of yesterday!  I feel.....AWFUL! ha ha.  I thought I felt bad before, but let me tell you, 10 weeks has hit me HARD!  Yesterday was the worst day yet.  Threw up after every meal until I took Zofran.  I was able to keep dinner down after that but still felt completely sick.

I am trying to make my medicine last until I go to the doctor one week from today.  I cannot explain how excited/anxious/nervous/relieved I will be to go to the doctor again.  We will either 1. hear the heartbeat on their doppler OR 2. see the baby/heartbeat on an ultrasound.

Very much looking forward to it.  And looking forward to this week being OVER!
Corey is still being completely the BEST husband ever.  Keeping up with everything, cooking, cleaning up.  I help when I can, like last Sunday I felt okay after taking some medicine so I helped straighten and clean before company came over.

10 weeks means we are 1/4 way through.  Hard to believe!  The baby is now the size of a prune. Just over an inch head to rump, and all the vital organs are present!  Here is the summary from

He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy.
If you could take a peek inside your womb you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.

In other developments: Your baby's limbs can bend now. His hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. The outline of his spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from his spinal cord. Your baby's forehead temporarily bulges with his developing brain and sits very high on his head, which measures half the length of his body. From crown to rump, he's about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, your baby will again double in size— to nearly 3 inches.

Sister, I can't tell you how overjoyed I am for ALL of you! I will continue to pray in everyway. And although the sickness is at times unbearable . . . it actually is a "good" thing. It means the hormones are in full swing to carry the pregnancy along! :) Try to get rest! ;)
Love, hugs, and prayers,
