I saw my baby for the first time on Tuesday. It was a blurb on the screen but you could see the heart beat and we were able to hear it. It was at 158 and I am close to nine weeks, five days earlier than we orginially thought but they kept the due date the same. January 13th of next year. Friday the 13th which I find amusing. I'm not superstitious or anything and we figure it might not fall on that exact date anyway with me being a little early in the gestational period.
How I've been feeling is sick sick sick! Finally tossed my cookies yesterday which was horribly traumatic! I was over the toilet for five minutes! Sorry to be descriptive! I had Zofran and took it which took care of the problem, thankfully. But as the story goes, medication trades one problem for another. In one word, Constipation!
So I told myself to take only when needed and so far today I feel better. I figure its probably still in my system.
I fell in love with that little blurb on Tuesday! I didn't get choked up but I was simply amazed. It was such a s surreal experience. My husband came with me and said he felt the exact same way. We head back in July for my next appt.
So I'm trying to get through each day as best as I can. I saw the nutritionist and I have good feedback on vitamins and supplementation that will help me with my pregnancy and digestion. I'm considering writing an informational blog on it outside of SparkPeople so women can find it on Google, women who have digestive problems, particularly Leaky Gut. There is not alot of helpful info out there so I am paying premium to get good advice but it's all worth it to me!
It's super hot out! I hope everyone is staying cool.
