10 weeks today

We've made it to 10 weeks. My skirts are just starting to get snug in my lower belly. I haven't gained any weight (I think I have enough to begin with!) and my blood sugar is looking fab. I've really noticed that I feel much better having increased the amount of vegetables in my diet. I find myself craving them now. I'm also eating more fruit quite happily.

I've been having trouble getting excited about meat, though. I have just enough nausea that having to come up with a meat dish for supper makes my head hurt. My poor DH has to come up with the supper ideas and often even cook them himself :(

I'm still pretty fatigued. Have a hard time getting my a$$ off the couch some days. My DS who is 14 months plays quite nicely on his own and the idea of doing housework also makes my head hurt. Guess I'm a little lazy. I've succumbed to the wet, coolish weather (40s) we have here and haven't really been dressing appropriately (no socks, for one) which makes going outside miserable. I know, I know. Suck it up. Put on some leggings and the boots and get outside! DS SOOO loves to be outside.

This blog is listed at Babes in Blogland and I was surfing the other Sept 2008 blogs. One mama is trying to decide whether or not to have a VBAC. Her medwife already told her she wasn't a good candidate due to FTP. Ugh and double ugh. I just can't go there right now. I can't read about women scheduling c-sections at 39 weeks. I just can't. She'll somehow have to make it through without my advice. Unless I cave.

we have our next m/w appt on Tuesday. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll hear the heartbeat with the Doppler, but I'm petrified that we won't since it's a drop early.

I guess you caved! :-)

I knew that posting that VBAC or no? post would generate advice comments, which will help me figure out what makes the most sense for me and my family.

2 things stood out for me coming over here, though. First, the question of "just knowing" when it's the right midwife. I had that feeling in spades about my first pregnancy -- she was the 3rd I interviewed, and it was the same person who recommended against VBAC this time.

The other thing was your horror of scheduling a c/s at 39 weeks. Can you explain that a bit more?
