10 Weeks

Two more weeks have passed. I have made it to 10 weeks. Only 3 weeks left until the end of the trimester. I sure hope that with it comes the end of morning sickness – er… all day sickness. It sucks not being able to enjoy the summer or do anything fun because I’m in the bathroom moaning and groaning. But, it’s  for a good reason. In between dry heaves, I say out loud “this is good”.

8 Weeks

I apologize, dear readers, for not updating more often this past month. This pregnancy is kicking my butt, but this is a good thing. I keep telling myself the more symptoms, the better. Right? Doesn’t feel that way when my head is stuck in the toilet.

I went to the doctor Wednesday and she said everything looked good. She even sent me down for an ultrasound without me having to beg. The ultrasound went well! Snowflake looks more like a baby. Big head, little body. She showed me the “nubs” that will turn into legs and arms and I even saw the umbillical cord. The placenta isn’t there yet, the baby is still getting nutrients from the yolk sac (which I did see).

And the heartbeat… the sweet little heartbeat. I got to hear it good this time. 180 beats per minute!!!!!!! Wow! I said “Oh, that’s another girl!” and the tech said “Oh, you can’t go by that.” I know this. But, it’s a good old wives tale. And pretty accurate in my case. But, ya never know.

I have to take one day at a time. Or more accurately, one hour at a time. Every time I go to the bathroom and wipe, I check the toilet paper. Every time I feel wetter down there than normal, I run to the bathroom. Every time my symptoms disappear for more than an hour, I start to wonder.

Thank you all for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers, please continue to do so!
