Ten Weeks

Ten weeks! That's 1/4 of the way through! Still feels pretty early in the process though. The baby is approximately the size of a prune now. As you can see (excuse the weird look on my face and disheveled hair), I'm getting quite big already! By the end of the day, I'm even bigger.

I had a prenatal appointment yesterday. Overall, it was uneventful, but we were able to find the baby's heart beat with doppler - in the 140s!

At my first appointment, they found Group B strep (a very common bacteria found in pregnant women) in my urine culture, so they re-tested me for that. Regardless, they will administer antibiotics during labor as a precaution to make sure the baby doesn't get infected.

I've gained 1.5 lbs according to my doctor's scale, which is the most I've gained at this point in pregnancy! In fact, I LOST with both the boys in the first trimester. The only way I keep the nausea and puking at bay this time is by constantly eating, so I shouldn't be surprised.

Next up on the baby agenda is the first trimester screening and nuchal translucency scan (to screen for things such as trisomies, downs, and spina bifida) on June 24th. So, things are kind of boring for now!


  1. Hooray for a good doctor's appt and heart beat! Aw, Lil Custodio #3 is the size of a prune! Time is already flyin'! It's all so exciting! :)

  2. We need some updates on your little bump!
