First Baby Pictures
Well, here is my little sweety pie! This past Sunday I started bleeding but it turned out to be very normal spotting during this stage of pregnancy. Needless to say it scared me quite a bit as I thought I was having another miscarriage. My mom immediately came over and prayed with me. I felt a lot more peaceful after she prayed. I went to the doctor the next day and he checked everything out and gave me an ultrasound. It was so beautiful to see the baby on the screen. My last ultrasound ended so sadly and this time was the exact opposite. He said the baby was moving around quite a bit. The long thing highlighted at the top is the umbilical cord and the dot at the bottom is the heart. He pointed out where the arms were and you could see them wiggling all around! So cute! In a couple weeks I will go in again for a 12 week ultrasound. (I am 10 weeks now.) He couldn't get the crown to rump measurement because the baby was in a strange position. So he is going to try an abdominal ultrasound to see if he can't get a better view.
So far this little guy is giving me some pretty bad morning sickness. I am throwing up but thankfully not everyday! It seems only on days when I am overly tired. I do get a little queasy everyday but that seems to be taken care of by eating some crackers. The evenings are hard when I am cooking dinner, especially meat. BLEH! Fruit is absolute heaven. Right now I love kiwis and apples, really crispy apples. I am really looking forward to my appetite coming back!
