Double Digits!

10 weeks today! Only 3 weeks left until my 2nd trimester and less than 2 weeks for the next ultrasound! Bun should be moving all over the place during that one and we can't wait. We will have video of the next ultrasound as well! Today Bun is the size of a prune - just not as wrinkly!

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.)
I am still feeling sick, at least now I know better and can keep it at bay with a couple of crackers every now and then, but the mornings are the worst right before I eat breakfast, and the nights right before bed. Other than that I am doing good. My blood sugars are phenomeonal - I had an appointment this week with my Endo and my
AIC is now 5.1% - that is really low! A great number! I actually have no appointments next week! ( Well besides a haircut!) Then the week after I have my u/s on the 17th and my Diabetic Nurse Educator appt on the 18th - the week after that I have another OB appt on the 23rd! Wow - I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner!
Thats all I have for today. I will leave you with 10 week belly shots! I am actually sucking it in in these, as much as I can. I know I am not showing yet - its just still the bloat - but now when I press down I can actually feel my uterus! ( It should be the size of a grapefruit this week!) Corey took these and I was not really ready for all of them.... But here goes - let the growing begin!

For the record - I need to start working out again. Yikes! haha
