Happy Dance!!

I would like to announce that I will be stopping all meds this evening.  I have two shots left tonight, one of progesterone and one of estrogen.  Then I am DONE!!!

My behind is beyond painful right now.  I have numbness, knots the size of pickles (yes in that length), new and old bruises and soreness.  I am hoping that by the 3rd trimester my back side will be back to it's normal self and not the beat up that it looks now.  I would share pictures but I will spare you all that awfulness. ha  Yeah for the final day of shots!!!

Yes I am a bit excited about this moment!  I never thought I would hate shots so much in my life but after giving myself roughly 75 shots I am done.  I don't want to see these shots for a while for sure!

9 weeks!




Weight Gain: 4 lbs.  It is crazy to me how much you can gain and then not gain with pregnancy. 

Cravings: Eggs, French toast with cream and yummy syrup, orange juice, cheese burgers with bacon, oh and bacon and more bacon!  Anything that has meat in it really.  I eat whatever sounds good at the time since I might not like it later.

Aversions: Too much milk, plain water is really gross right now (choking it down though), certain smells make me sick almost instantly too.

Symptoms: Nausea 24/7 although some days are decent and not too bad, tossing and turning at night, Awesome acid reflux which makes me sleep sitting up right every so often. 

What miss: Not wanting to throw up every single day and night, not having heart burn, sleeping without having to sit upright.

The past few weeks have seemed to zip on by with nothing to crazy going on.  I have had a few bouts of heart burn really bad.  So bad that I literally had to sleep sitting up right to help me fall asleep.  That was unexpected this soon in the pregnancy but it just means it is a healthy pregnancy I suppose.

I do have bouts of really good days or moments during the day where the nausea is gone, completely.  Those are great and makes me look forward to when it is gone completely.  I couldn't go in the kitchen for a while but the one day I was feeling awesome I cleaned it top to bottom really good!

I have been really tired but not so bad.  I do literally come home after work and eat, bath my daughter and get us both ready for bed.  I am getting probably 10-12 hours of sleep at night.  If I don't get enough sleep at night I am dying at work and falling asleep so sleep right now is my friend!

First Ultrasound

I flew into California on Saturday morning; we decided it would be easier to have me there.  We planned to have our first ultrasound this Sunday to see the baby and the heartbeat.  The entire family would be there to witness this little miracle growing inside me!  I was a bit sad that my daughter wasn't able to be there too since she's been my biggest fan through all this.

I was so tired from the week that when we got to their house on Saturday I literally slept til dinner time.  The pregnancy exhaustion has kicked it up and been a constant friend from sun up til sun down.  I felt a little bad since it seems I have slept the entire stay the last two times I came to visit.

On Sunday we were getting ready and for some reason I thought just the Mr & Mrs were coming.  I don't know why I didn't think the little kidlets would be there to.  That was really neat to have everyone there and to get excited.  Ms. Diva was constantly asking to touch my belly and would proceed to poke it instead. :)

When we got to the clinic is was overflowing with patients waiting to be seen.  It was probably the most full we have ever seen it thus far.  The wait was to a minimum thank goodness and we were called back quickly.  I got ready in the room and then Mr&Mrs came in.  They were going to have the kids come in right away but the doctor talked them into waiting to make sure everything was going good.  Once we saw the heartbeat we had the kids come in to see the little pea.  I was measuring exactly 7 weeks on Sunday and my due date is April 26th!

The cute little pea just hanging out!!

6 weeks



I am officially 6 weeks along!!  So crazy to think that we are half way done with the first trimester and will be in the clear soon!!  It goes by a lot quicker then you think it does!

I feel like I am starting to show already but maybe it is just in my head.  I have been doing good with morning sickness so far and have only had to take one zofran pill because I just wasn't getting on top of the yuck feeling.  That pill is heaven sent for sure!!

We go for our first ultrasound to check on the baby/babies on Sunday to see the heartbeat and make sure everything is going smoothly!  So excited!
