Week 10 – Lego Man
Symptoms and doubts
The baby is now the size of a Lego man!
“And now I can drink water again, as long as it is slowly and just a few sips at the time.”
Symptoms are touch wood, starting to get a bit lighter, especially nausea. I’m still tired very often but even that seems to be improving. And I now can drink water again, as long as it is slowly and just a few sips at the time. Bathroom issues remain the same, no matter how many veggies and fruit I eat. The metallic flavour on my mouth is mostly gone and the main thing that still catches me up by surprise every now and then is the dizziness when turning or standing up too quickly. The belly is getting firmer, more compact, but not really showing yet. And, yay!, sex drive is coming back!
One of the main topics coming to mind is bringing this wonderful human into this world. Natural birth, hospital, epidurals, C-sections, etc, etc. What will feel best for us, what would the baby want, what does the body need? No idea, opinions diverge and the internet is really not helping. I need to select a few key people to ask about this – people whose opinions I value and that seem aligned with my world view. Who and where are you? On this note, my husband seems even more confused than I and is having a hard time even approaching the topic in a way that doesn’t feel too alien to him. “What should another body do to bring yet another body to life? Eh…” Either way, his support is amazing and just makes me happier and happier that we decided to bring our lives together.
