10 Weeks

I can't believe it's already been 10 weeks! Time is flying!

Not much happened in the last week. I'm very tired, and that's exacerbated by the lack of air conditioning at our house. Neither Jon nor I are sleeping very well, but the broken AC part is on order, so I'm praying it comes soon! I'm just glad the AC isn't broken at my 9th month!

I seem to have missed the worst of the first trimester signs, for which I am extremely grateful! The worst thing I'm dealing with is the need for fiber...I'll let you figure out why. I've added Benefiber to my diet, and I hope that helps. But even that is a small complaint, and I'm crossing my fingers that the rest of my pregnancy goes as well as it has started!

My uterus started out the size of a small pear and has now grown to grapefruite-size. Isn't that crazy! And even crazier is that there's a human being in there! Newbie is about 1 1/4 inches long now, and his development is all about the details: hair, toenails, joints, and his tiny organs are even starting to function on their own. As I'm reminded through every step of pregnancy, God is amazing!


  1. I think it's hilarous how the changes a woman goes through during pregnancy is always compared to fruit! When my cousin was preggy,she would send out emails telling us what size the baby was,and it was always like "kumkwat, kiwi, apple, honeydew". What about something a little different. Perhaps they could say "Newbie is the size of a coffee mug". I like that better!

  2. Hope the AC gets fixed soon!
