Pregnancy Update: Week 10 (Baby #5)

So, in case you missed it, I announced that we are expecting our fifth (and final!) child around June 2015. I may have to come back and update the weeks accordingly because I am expecting my due date to change. I wanted to try to do biweekly pregnancy updates to document this pregnancy. I’m also planning on blogging about different topics like my favorite natural pregnancy/birth books, home birth, and more. I’m open to requests!

How Far Along? 10 weeks, 3 days
Weight Gain? I’ve only lost so far due to severe morning sickness.
Maternity Clothes? Not a “must” yet, but I got out my maternity jeans just because they are SO much more comfortable.
Sleep? Still good for the most part, except for I am sick ALL NIGHT LONG. I just started Zofran on Friday, because I couldn’t take it any more. Almost a month straight of severe morning sickness really got to me.
Symptoms? Some mild cramping. Severe morning sickness/possible hyperemesis. Can we talk about that for a minute? I’ve had HG before, but the difference with this pregnancy is that I can barely get through a grocery trip without wanting to get sick. I can’t handle the smells in the store!
Food Cravings? Anything salty and spicy…which is weird for me.
Best Moment This Week? When my midwife prescribed the Zofran. Haha!

Looking Forward To? My first prenatal appointment is Dec. 3rd.

    I didn't even tell people I was pregnant until I hit the 12 week mark because I was very superstitious. I never had morning sickness with either of my pregnancies, so I am sorry you're suffering.

      We waited a little while to tell people this time around. But with the holidays coming up and me being so sick, I'm not able to hide it very well. People kept asking why I have been feeling so cruddy. Lol.

    My daughter just gave birth to twins and they were born at 28 1/2 weeks. It is scary dealing with all that goes into it. I hope your pregnancy gets easier and the morning sickness wears off soon!

    I had severe morning sickness with my youngest, I am sure you know it gets better. I had to carry convenience bags everywhere. Luckily I worked with paramedics that kept me stocked with those little bags.

    Sorry you've been soooo caught with the nausea. I can't even imagine it happening during the night, so I'm really glad you have Zofran now!

  8. November 24, 2014 / 8:05 pm

    I always told very early. I think each pregnancy should be celebrated, no matter how early. Congratulations on your pregnancy!!

    I've never been pregnant, so I can't compare notes with you 😉 Kiddo is my step daughter. However, congrats on baby #5.

  10. November 24, 2014 / 9:33 pm

  12. November 24, 2014 / 10:49 pm

    Congratulations. I hope your morning sickness gets over with. I was lucky and never experienced that part of pregnancy.

  13. November 25, 2014 / 12:23 am

    Oh, I hope you feel better soon. I was sick the first trimester with both kids – more with my daughter than my son.

  14. November 25, 2014 / 12:48 am

    Congratulations! Yay, a June baby! I hear June 17th is a great day to have a baby 🙂

  15. November 25, 2014 / 12:58 am

    Sorry to hear about your sickness. I hope it passes soon.

  16. November 25, 2014 / 2:41 am

    Ahhh Zofran was a blessing for me as well. I hope you start feeling better soon!

  17. November 25, 2014 / 2:45 am

    I have a rare genetic disorder called 22q and I had morning sickness all day long every single day only to find out that after I had my daughter she too has 22q and I have another rare disorder called gasteroparies means my stomach is broken so it was a given that I was throwing up all day every day. I only later found out they make stuff and a med that was safe that I could have taken. oh I wish I would have had some ideas to record it all down like you are doing and congratulations by the way.

  18. November 25, 2014 / 4:32 am

    I am sorry that you are getting so sick! I do not miss morning sickness one bit!

  19. November 25, 2014 / 4:59 am

    I don't have any kids yet, but I'm hoping I inherited my mom's genes since she didn't have morning sickness. Hope yours lightens up soon!

  20. November 25, 2014 / 5:15 am

    Congratulations! So sorry about the morning sickness. That has to be tough, especially with 4 children keeping you so busy. It will be fun following your progress.

  21. November 25, 2014 / 2:10 pm

    I like salty and spicy. When I was expecting I liked meat, and I don't eat meat!!

  22. November 25, 2014 / 4:37 pm

    Congratulations! Hope you are feeling better soon! I was lucky enough and had just couple of weeks of morning sickness.

  23. November 25, 2014 / 5:06 pm

    I don't wants to tell any one. Because my giddiness and the vomiting troubles shows every one that I am pregnant. It starts from my fourth week of pregnancy itself. I had severe morning sickness during my both pregnancies. I cant even go to kitchen at that time and I would hate the smells. Only after 16th week it all gets better!!

  24. November 25, 2014 / 6:14 pm

    Aww congratulations – I hope the pregnancy goes well for you. Good luck at your appointment 🙂 x

  25. November 25, 2014 / 6:40 pm

    I had fruit cravings with my second pregnancy and lettuce. I had those mild cramps too

  26. November 25, 2014 / 8:05 pm

    I hope the morning sickness passes soon. That can be so tough.

  27. November 26, 2014 / 12:53 am

    I was very sick with both of my kids till about the seventh month. Then i felt great. I look forward to following you in your pregnancy journey.

  28. November 26, 2014 / 1:23 am

    Congratulations! Sounds like you are almost out of the first trimester and therefore the illness. Hang in there.

  29. November 26, 2014 / 2:18 am

    I had terrible morning sickness with my second pregnancy. I remember I used to carry crackers in the car when I was driving for that reason.

  30. November 26, 2014 / 5:20 am

    Congrats on the new blessing. When I was pregnant with all three of my girls I had morning sickness the whole pregnancy and I could not eat chicken at all.

  31. November 26, 2014 / 6:18 am

    My morning sickenss was nuts. I think I lost about 10lbs and they kept trying to tell me to eat more. I was like am eating it is just not staying.

  32. November 26, 2014 / 10:28 pm
