Week 10: Let's Try this Again
For the last week, I've been suffering from dull headaches. These frequently follow naps and a full night's rest. I figured out that these are the same types of headaches that always preceded a high-school dance, a college mid-term, a law school final or a bar exam day. The solution: my trusty upper retainer. So, instead of clenching my teeth, essentially grinding enamel on enamel, its enamel and hard plastic. Works wonders. I really need to stop reading these pregnancy books.
I changed my pre-natal vitamins once my sample pack ran out...who wants to pay $50/month for something the dr. said I could buy OTC? That's exactly what I did. Except, I hurled as soon as that bad boy hit my belly. I'll try again tomorrow.
Tomorrow, we have our second appointment with the OB so we're very excited. Actually, I've got to get going so I can write down my questions for the doc. Big D is so cute. He's reading his daddy-to-be book. Precious.
P.S. The fetus reference photo is creepy this week. Seriously.
What baby is up to: With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will too.)
