Morning Sickness-- Scratch That! All Day Sickness!

Well... she's hit with a vengeance folks. 

Yes, morning sickness. Wait-- who am I kidding, haha, they should call it 'All Day Sickness.' LOL Because I literally have it all day. There are some moments in the day where I feel amazing... then there are moments where I can hardly lift my head off the couch without vomiting. I had been feeling really good up to this point so I thought I might be avoiding the rough spot. I had a few tinges of nausea and one or two moments of vomiting, but nothing consistent... but ever since Wednesday, it's like someone flipped a switch, haha! :) Oh well, I suppose as I continue to be sick, it means the baby is still doing alright, right? ;) 

I am thankful though because of that. It does my heart good to know that everything is alright :) We have our first OB appointment Monday. I'll be 8 weeks, 1 day then. I'm anxious to get in there and get this process started! One of many appointments. YAY! 

Also, we find out what we're having in 50 days!! Seems unreal huh? 50 sounds HUGE, but on the grand spectrum of things, it doesn't seem so bad!! :) I can hardly stand it! It's going to be a huge weekend for us. My brother gets married November 10th and then we are finding out what we are having November 11th..... eek! :) 

Hope you are all having an amazing week! I can't wait for the weekend!

Our Ultrasound [7 Weeks]

We FINALLY saw him/her! :) It was an amazing sight to see, I'll tell you that much! We are already so in love :) I cried through the entire thing, haha! I felt bad for the ultrasound technician because I was crying and my belly wasn't staying still so she had to  keep readjusting the doppler, haha! But we saw the baby nonetheless and we saw the heart flickering :) It was beautiful. The heart rate was 118. The technician said the heart rate is all over the place when the baby is just tiny, but it will get more rapid as time progresses. She said everything looked great and the heart rate was nice and strong :) It was so relieving to finally see it! 

My mom, dad, Ethan, Tayler, and myself went. Tayler wasn't really that excited about it, haha! My mom had to keep chasing her around ;) LOL! We keep telling her there's a baby in Mommy's belly, but I think she's still too young to understand that. 

Either way-- we are thrilled! :) We are so happy we finally got to see the baby and we know everything is a-okay right now! :) November 11th we find out the sex. Whoohoo!!

7 Weeks :)

7 Weeks Pregnant [9/16/2012-9/22/2012]

What's going on this week??

Pants are already getting tighter.


I wish I was kidding, haha! I know they say you show quicker with your 2nd one, but goodness gracious! LOL I wore a size 4 before getting pregnant and I already cannot button them! :( I am trying so hard to watch what I eat this time around. With Tayler.... I didn't. I craved Big Macs and Hot Fudge Sundaes. Great mixture, eh? :) I've had two cravings this far-- Spicy Chicken Sandwich from Wendys and Queso Fundido from Tla Que PaQue. Not the healthiest, but I try and do good through the day. I bought apples and I made oatmeal peanut butter bars for snacks-- healthy, healthy. And apple sauce! :) I figure if I work hard through the day, the night time cravings won't be near as bad ;) Thankfully, I have an amazing husband that gets whatever I'm feeling. He rocks.

I've been very nauseous again this week. No throwing up, but lots of nausea. It just hits in waves at random times-- especially when I don't eat on a regular basis. I have been doing good with my prenatal vitamin and only taking it after dinner, on a full belly. I did terrible with Tayler. I'd take it on an empty stomach-- and then wonder why I was throwing up 35 minutes later, haha! :)

Everything else feels good this week! :)

I thought I'd start answering some questions NOW. They'll be pretty boring at first.. of course ;) But hopefully towards the end, they'll be more fun-filled and exciting for you readers!

How far along? 7 weeks.
Total Weight Gain? I don't know this answer as of right now. We'll say zero and hope to God it's true!
Maternity Clothes? Nah! Just pants unbuttoned when sitting ;)
Stretch Marks? It's hard to say because I had them from my first pregnancy with Tayler! None that are new as far as I can tell ;)
Sleep: Always tired! I have an 18 month old, so it's not always consecutive sleep, but I sleep good nonetheless!
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing a growing belly! Does a Momma's heart good!
Miss Anything? Not really right now! Sometimes I miss the occasional glass of wine, but that's it!
Movement: Nope! I'm sure he/she is, but I surely can't feel it yet!
Food Cravings: Spicy Chicken sandwich from Wendy's and Queso Fundido. Yum!
Anything Make You Queasy or Sick? Scrambled eggs. Just their smell. Dirty diapers do it to me as well! :( Just anything that doesn't sit well with my tummy. Or thinking about corn dogs.... ick!
Gender: We have no idea!
Labor Signs: I'd sure hope not! :)
Symptoms: Nausea, heartburn, sore boobies, exhaustion
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody this Week?  A little bit of both! It's that first trimester... I'm always kind of upset during that time. It's confusing... scary... exciting.. nerve wrecking.. all wrapped up in to one!
Looking Forward To: Seeing our baby............ VERY SOON! :) Our first ultrasound is in 5 hours on the dot! :)

Happy 7 weeks! On to 8... :)
