It's amazing how much a baby grows in a week! I now have full blown morning sickness complete with throwing up, oh joy! I spent the entire day in bed yesterday and couldn't manage to keep anything down. I was given a script for Zofran at my doctors appointment this morning. I have also scheduled my first appointment with my ob for next week. I can't believe I am already into my 8th week already. Here is to hoping this whole morning sickness thing can subside and I can start to function like a normal person again!

My baby is the size of a blueberry, having grown 10,000 times bigger than it was at conception! AMAZING! The other amazing thing is that we saw and heard the heartbeat yesterday at our appointment. The heartbeat is already at 120, which we were told was pretty strong for 6.5 weeks, which puts this momma at ease. I am so excited every Monday because I get to see our baby!
Morning sickness has set in this past week. Although I was dealing with nausea @ night which was easy to just go to bed to feel better, I have started to not feel so hot in the morning! So I have saltines and preggie pops on hand (which the preggie pops helped the other night thank goodness!) I have tried to stop drinking anything past a certain time which has helped because I haven't gotten up to go to the bathroom the last few nights.
All in all, I am doing pretty well.

It's been 6 days since we found out we are expecting a little one and I still feel like I am living in a dream! I still can't believe after 5 years of trying, I am pregnant! Maybe it will be more real to me when I go in for my first ultrasound on Monday. I am in my fifth week and I am feeling good so far. The nausea really hasn't been present this week like last week, I have just been very very tired! The only restriction the doctor has me on is that I can't lift over 10 pounds which has been hard with the kids I watch but my sister has been very helpful with picking up the kids for me.
So excited to see my little peanut on Monday!
