10 Weeks

I had another baby check-up this past week.  Everything is good.  They also had a little hand held ultrasound device and checked the baby.  Heartbeat still strong!  Baby is growing!  I’m also just as nauseous and tired as ever.  Everything is still progressing as it should!  Thank you, Jesus!  A couple more weeks to go and I should be out of my first trimester.

For all the moms out there that know what it’s like to have a nose like a bloodhound when you’re pregnant, you will completely understand how horrible it is.  I hated the smell of meat when I was pregnant with Faith.  This time around, my sense of smell is so much stronger and strong odors are just completely intolerable now.   The other day,  I started smelling the most foul odor coming from the kitchen.  I got up in a panic and asked Aaron what that smell was!?  I thought Rocky had farted or pooped somewhere.  It was SO strong.  It was like Andre the Giant had ate a bowl of dog food mixed with beans, liver and onions, then let loose the biggest fart ever creating rippling waves of gas lingering in the air that would make the dog faint.  I ran to my room gagging; trying hard not to vomit.  It was ok in my room for a few minutes until the air kicked on and then when the air started circulating that stink creeped into the room.  I put my head under the blanket and prayed it would go away soon.  Aaron was just heating up a salisbury steak dinner.  Yes, that’s how bad pregnancy nose is.

This is what the baby looks like at 10 weeks…

Baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature.

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.

Tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.

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.
