Ultrasound Update

Sorry I havent updated since our ultrasound. It was wonderful though. I have been meaning to scan the pictures , but of course havent. We went in and they did an internal ultrasound and found our little bean. It was about the size of a pea! Its little heart was beating away. I t was wonderful to see. A huge sense of relief washed over me. I feel much more secure about this pregnancy. We have been to too many ultrasounds where they say..." I'm sorry, but the baby doesnt have a heartbeat". So we were very happy. I go back to the doctor this week. I PROMISE I will update then.

We had a busy weekend. My daughters school Carnival, that I help with was Sunday. It was a lot of fun, but exhausting! I am still tired. I hope I can catch up on my sleep this week.

My beta more than doubled!

Sorry I havent posted, but I was on vacation. We took a week and went to Texas to visit relatives. While I was there, we got a call from our doctor telling us our second beta, which was 19dpo was 1840! Yaaay, we are so happy. It really was a relief.

Today I am 6wks1day pregnant and am really starting to feel crappy. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like I was going to puke, but never did. The awful feeling just lingered for about an hour. Not what I want to be doing at 3 in the morning. This morning it is even worse. Dont get me wrong...I am not complaining. I have waited too long for this to happen to start complaining. I just dont remember feeling this bad. oh well.

We go for our first ultrasound on wed. evening. We are SO excited! I am still nervous, but I feel really good about this. I will update on wed. after our appointment. Keep your fingers crossed!
