9 weeks (and 5 days)

I am almost 10 weeks along now, and the throwing up finally set in a few days ago.  I was kind of shocked when it happened the first time since its already pretty late in the first trimester.  I thought everyone started that much earlier than this.  I figured I would get away with just feeling sick sometimes.  The throwing up hasn't been bad, just once each day in the morning.  I hope it doesn't last long though.  I don't like it at all.  I know I should take it as "a good sign", but I still hate it.  It could always be worse though.

We are headed off to Miami tomorrow to begin our cruise.  It will be my first plane flight since our trip to LA before I knew I was pregnant.  My doctor didn't really want me to fly earlier because things were fragile and we weren't sure how it would all turn out.  She said a plane flight will not cause a miscarriage and I am on the blood thinners anyway, so a clot is not a concern.  I am hoping that I feel ok while on the ship as well.  I think things will be fine.  I usually don't feel too bad, and there will be plenty of different things for me to eat, so I think it will be fine.  I'm really looking forward to the trip.  It will definitely be a nice distraction and the weather will be wonderful!  My next appointment is on the Tuesday after we get back.  I will be just over 11 weeks by then.  Hopefully things continue to go well and I will have another picture to share.  Darren will finally be able to come with me on this next one, so I'm looking forward to that.  It will be good for him to actually see the ultrasound and not another picture.  It really is a whole lot different when you actually see and hear a heartbeat.  Plus, at 11 weeks we should start seeing a lot of actual movement too, so that will be exciting. :)
