I'm 10 weeks pregnant today. Nausea and pregnancy hormones are supposed to peak from weeks 9 - 12, so every week survived during that period really feels like a triumph. This week Taylor and I went to the OB and got to see the baby's heartbeat again. I also had to go to the dentist for a tooth that chipped, which really hurts when you're sick all the time. With all this extra activity (it may not sound like much, but I didn't leave the house at all last week), I decided to try acupuncture for my nausea. It's really helped me a lot. I still feel sick, but I'm able to hold down some normal foods.
I'm afraid my illness has taken a toll on Taylor. They've been really short staffed at work, so he's had to carry a heavier load there and at home. I feel so blessed to have a husband who works so hard and rises to the challenge. I also feel blessed for a good job with great health benefits and disability insurance. I'm hoping that in 2 more weeks, I'll be able to return to a relatively normal life.
