Yep, had my first ultrasound this morning. There's an adorable little blob with a nice strong heartbeat ticking away inside of me. I'm just over 7 weeks and halfway through the first trimester.
Actually, within a couple of days of my last blog, I learned I was pregnant, but sadly miscarried less than a week later. Got pregnant again right away and this one seems like it wants to stick around a while!
Food and exercise habits have basically been whatever I can manage. I've been to the gym a couple of times, but not since the morning sickness set in last week. My insomnia is out of control. Food is not appetizing, but I feel like I'm constantly muching on something to keep the morning sickness at bay. Obviously roller derby is out of the question in my current condition though I plan to stay involved in a non-skating capacity. But it's all good because I'm growing a human!
We're not going to wait out the whole trimester to tell everyone like some people do. Now that we've seen a heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage is lower and if I do miscarry, I'll need the support of everyone around me. Tonight we're telling my step-daughters (ages 8 and 9). This weekend, the in-laws. Next week, we are going on a road trip to Washington where we will tell my family. So excited!
