I'm 10 weeks too, and also can't belive how quickly this is going so far! Last night I had a panicky dream that I birthed a beautiful baby boy, but had no name and hadn't yet written my birth plan. For some reason, I couldn't remember the birth at all, excpet that it was short
, ad so I was madly trying to ask everyone how it had gone and it really distrurbed me that I had no name yet, or birth plan!
My ds was 6 weeks early (born at 34w5d), and so I really hope not to repeat that! I do expect to be slightly early though, b/c my cycles have always been between 23-26 days.
My m/s seems to be better, but I still can't take any multi-vitamin of any kind without feeling really awful 6-24 hours later. and food prep still grosses me out. Somwhat less tired, but we've been at my parent's home for the past 2 weeks, so I've been relaxing! We head home tomorrow, so that's the end of that! I may not be able to post much as our home computer is acting wacky and the cursor responds very slowly on certain internet sites (one being MDC
Anybody read Having Faith
by Sandra Steingraber? She's an ecologist who writes about her first pregnancy and birth in this book. It's pretty good, but all the info on environmental hazards is a bit heavy for me during the 1st tri.
I'm not in maternity yet, but am really into my formerly "too big" jeans and overalls. My belly is about where I remember it being around 4 months last time, so I'm guessing I'll need to go shopping soon. Part of it is, as Snowbaby described, a need to have nothing tight on my belly b/c of nausea!
I've had a few "why am I doing this again?!!" moments about m/s, I hadn't even thought that about labor yet! Arrrgh! I do remember saying I wasn't ever going to do that again sometime during transition. Ahhh, but we also get to push again! And that sensation was one of the best I've ever felt, the sheer power of bringing this new life into the world. I felt the power of the universe moving through me! And hearing the very first sound the baby makes!!!
Okay, I'd better shower while ds is still happily reading with Grandma.
