10 week bumpdate

How Far Along: 10 weeks and 4 days

Meds: All taken daily – Prenatal, Omega + DHA, Vitamin D 2000mg, Vitamin B12, Probiotic, Estrace 400 mg, Prometrium 200mg, PIO 1ml, Diclectin (3 pills daily)

The countdown is on: tonight is my FINAL ass shot!  I’ll continue my Estrace and Prometrium for another 3 days .

Baby is the size of: a kumquat or a date

Best Moment This Week: No more puking + first orgasm since before transfer. Yes, we held out for a LONG time. I’m happy to say I had no scares following the magical moment.

Total Weight Gain: Haven’t weighed myself this week.

Maternity Clothes: Last week, I used my Bella Band Basic with my regular jeans undone. It worked really well! Except on the 2nd day, I found the band was trying to roll up a bit. Just takes a bit of adjusting each time you stand up from sitting. Other than that, I’m still wearing regular clothes. I did purchase 2 maternity dresses for summer and a cute “Due in October” tank top.

Symptoms: Same as last week: Tired, sore nipples (the boob soreness has subsided a bit), NAUSEA! Last week was by far, my worst week for nausea. After not being able to keep anything down Wed-Thursday, I caved and got a prescription for Diclectin. I’m flying out for a business trip tomorrow and I did not want to be puking the entire time I am away. Let’s just say Diclectin and I are now friends. It totally eases my nausea until it’s almost time to take another pill, then I get the dry heaves again. I’ve been taking 1 pill in the morning, at noon and at bedtime.

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping INSANE amounts! The Diclectin really turned me into a zombie the first 24 hours I was on it. I slept for over 12 hours the first night and had a few naps the next day. Since then, the drowsiness is wearing off. I’ve also been having INSANE dreams. Do these continue the whole pregnancy?

Food Cravings: Cherry danishes, cheese croissants… still on the carb kick.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Brushing my teeth, chicken, smell of urine in a public bathroom

Movement: Too early.

Stretch Marks: Nothing new.

Baby Bump: Barely there but continuously getting harder.

Gender Prediction: BOY!

Labour Signs: Too early.

Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!

Wedding Rings on or off?: On.

Happy or Moody?: Diclectin zombie = moody

Purchases for baby: Nothing – surprise again!

Miss Anything?: Having energy. vegetables.

Looking forward to: Our 12 week ultrasound… date STILL to be determined.

  1. I’m glad you’ll have your last shot in the booty tonight and glad to hear that you’re not barfing! I wish I could borrow some of your sleep. 🙂


  2. So glad the drugs are helping with your nausea! And enjoy that extra sleep. At 23 weeks, I am already having sleep issues. I miss being able to sleep like I could in the early weeks. Speaking of sleep–I find that the crazy dreams come and go. They’ll be really vivid for a week, and then not for a week. They sure are trippy, though.


    • You aren’t kidding! I’d take a full dream-less night of sleep any day now! I find they are the worst after I wake up to pee and attempt to go back to sleep. I have a sleep CD that is supposed to get you to that REM sleep mode, maybe I should try it after my pee breaks?


  3. I feel like there should be a special name for the kind of zombie Diclectin makes of us. I’m so glad it has helped with your vomiting. I am IMPRESSED and JEALOUS that you had an orgasm!! I’m not sure when it’s safe to get back into it, but I’m so due for one myself. I’m glad everything is going well. Good luck on your work trip!


  4. 😍 ten weeks !!! You’re a quarter through already !!! 😍

    Glad you’ve found the magic that is Diclectin! Its a treat for sure!

    Hope you’re ready to shop shop shop soon!
