Can Barely Finish A Senten.

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts lately. The fatigue has really been kicking my butt. My bedtime nowadays begins as early as 730pm but I'm always out by 10pm. Even with 10-12 hours of sleep, I feel like I need more. I've been sleeping the time away to my next ultrasound.

I made an appointment with a new midwife for July 3rd. I'm hoping we will get another glimpse of our little miracle and maybe hear the heartbeat. I will be 10w3d at that point so I would love to see how much he/she has grown in the past month. Some of you may be wondering why I chose a midwife over an OB. I have done a good bit of research and I feel more comfortable with the idea of someone being with me during the entire laboring process, as opposed to just popping in as the baby's head arrives. This being my first baby, I will have no idea what to expect and it would be nice to have the support of a midwife throughout the birth. I plan to have my mom and DH in the room with me as well, so I will have a great support system. It eases my mind knowing I will have so many people helping me out during the most amazing experience of my life.

I can't believe I will be entering my third month of pregnancy on Friday. I will officially be 9 weeks along. Only one more month until my second trimester. It doesn't seem real to me still.

Something else is unreal: my boobs. I actually have breasts and cleavage! I've always been an A cup but they have easily gone up a cup size. I am bursting out of my A's and I'm filling up B's quite nicely. I'm enjoying this and I'm sure DH is as well. I do have to admit they "get in the way" at times but I'm not complaining. I love how I look in clothes right now. My belly is getting rounder but anyone who doesn't know me would not be able to notice. My waistline is pretty nonexistent at this point. Especially after I eat. I have to unbutton my pants or trade them for yoga pants.

I don't have much else to report. Still no serious morning sickness - just waves of nausea that come and go once in a while. I'm just waiting for more developments and symptoms to appear.

I want to say congratulations to my friend Mandy, who just found out she is expecting a baby girl! You are going to be a great mom to little Jolie Cate! I can't wait to hear and see more about her. Go Team Pink!

Loves to everyone - and babydust to all of my TTC sisters. I am praying for more BFPs everyday. I have not and will never forget each and every one of you.

Wow! Time moves so quickly, doesn't it?! I have the same thoughts about a midwife vs. an OB. I hope you get a really nice look at the baby!

Just wondering why the comment "...Finish A Senten." if you related to a Senten (Last name). My last name is senten, and since there are too many of us, I have been searching. Thanks for letting me write this. C. jeff Senten (jeff.senten@hsc.utah.edu)
