We've made it to double digits! Yay! Baby is the size of a kumquat. I had no idea what a kumquat was, so I looked it up. Apparently, it's a small orange-like fruit.
I've been in kind of blogging funk lately. So please forgive the lack of posts or the lame-ness of the posts. I've been feeling pretty sick. Some days I'm okay, but most days I feel a lot of nausea and digestive pain. And I think I'm just so anxious to get to the second trimester. I feel like I will be able to relax a little more!! I know the second trimester doesn't come with a magic wand, but it does come with a little more peace of mind. Especially, when the first three months haven't been a walk in the park. We are so thankful to be at ten weeks today!! It feels good!
Thank you for all the advice over my "Chocolate and Hair Dye" post. It was all very helpful! And I have decided to wait two more weeks before highlighting my hair. As for the chocolate, I haven't been eating it, but I'm definitely not going to deprive myself if I'm having a chocolate chip cookie craving :)
I need some more advice, girls. Our next OB appt is on October 10th where Ill be 11 weeks 2 days. The NP mentioned that we need to decide if want to have the genetic testing done. Where they test to see if we carry a gene for things like down syndrome, Trisomy 18 and a few other things. I feel like we should, and I know they do this early because it gives you the chance to terminate. But I would not terminate the pregnancy, unless there were conditions where we ABSOLUTELY had to. But I'm not sure if I want to know. Because if our genetic testing comes back that we are carriers, I don't want to have that extra worry. Does this sound silly? I feel like I need someone to tell us what to do.
