Well I think pregnancy has hit me. It's not that I feel terrible, it's just that NOTHING sounds good, so I try several different things and nothing tastes good and then I start to feel nauseous. I'm 7 weeks on Thurs. so hopefully that means only feeling like this for the most 5 weeks, but hopefully it'll pass after week 8 or so. It only hit me this weekend and I'm already tired of it, however, anything for a new baby is worth it!! Other than that, this baby is pretty lucky because he gets hugs and kisses from Tay every single night!!! LOL

Today was our first official sonogram. I'm 6 weeks today and we got to hear the heartbeat!!!! There is only ONE baby in there!!! I think me and IM were both very pleased to find that out. The heartbeat was 109 and the Dr. said that is VERY good considering it's only 6 weeks and anything over 90 is great!! Sooo..I think we have a healthy little peanut in there as of now. We got pics and even got the 3D sono already so we could literally see the little tiny peanut looking baby. Amazing. I'm so excited, but it's such a different excitement this time. It's excitement that I will get to present this gift to them, yet let him (yes, I'm already saying him because I already think it's a boy...LOL) grow inside of me. I can't explain the feeling, but its definitely a different feeling. I go back in 2 weeks and then get released to my regular OB....which will be nice because she's literally 5 minutes from me rather than 30 minutes!!! I guess its time to tell my job. I thought I'd wait, but I swear I already have a baby bump!!! Won't be able to hide it much longer...guess my mom was right when she told me I'd show a lot quicker with the second!!!!

As you know I went in on Sunday for a sono because I was bleeding. Sunday the bleeding stopped and Monday it came back. I again called the dr. and she instructed me to 24-48 hours of bed rest or until the bleeding stopped. I went on bed rest (as much as you can with a 3 yo) and Tuesday while on bed rest I felt a migraine coming on. All of you who have been pregnant know there is NOTHING you can take when you get a headache let alone a migraine. Tylenol, thats it, and as many of you know, tylenol does NOTHING!! So the bleeding stopped mid-day Tuesday and the headache got worse. I used to get migraines a lot before Tay was born, but since her, I can count on one hand how may I've had. On Wednesday, it was all I could do to get out of bed. Every time I stood up I about blacked out and felt like someone was hitting me on the head with pots and pans. Thank goodness I have wonderful friends who offered to pick up Tay from daycare and keep her until bedtime. By the time she got home, I felt good enough to sit up and eat and play a little with her and back to bed we went. Tay was so sweet and whispered (due to Auntie Crazy telling her to) and asked if she could rub my head. She did and we laughed and talked and called it a night. Today I feel better, not 100% but better and tomorrow is the 6 week sono. Hopefully we will hear a heartbeat!!! I'm so super excited!!!!!!!!

I have been feeling awesome still. Seems so weird to me that I'm pregnant and not really feeling much. However, on Sat. after a fun filled day at the Arboretum with Tay and her 2 friends, I got home that evening and had some bleeding. It wasn't a lot but I never bled with my last pregnancy so I txted my IM (intended mom) and she said to call the dr. I called and they wanted me to come in on Sunday morning for a sono to make sure all was well. So I went and got my sono and everything looked fine. I go back to the dr. on Friday and as of right now they only saw 1 sac...so we are thinking just 1 egg took (which would be totally ok with me..lol) and hopefully on Friday we can see a heartbeat. I measured at 5 weeks, 1 day and am right on track.

Man I feel great. I keep asking myself if I'm really pregnant!!! Of course I am with my HCG count at 792 on Sat and I'm sure well in to the 1000's now. :) The only pregnancy "feeling" I'm having is that I go from not hungry to starving in 2 seconds..so I devour some food and an immediately full after 3-4 bites. I feel bloated all the time. I already have a pooch with no clothes on...so yeah, thinking I'm going to be huge!! LOL Oh and my boobs....they are soooo sore!!!! I wear a sports bra 24/7 hoping that nothing touches them and they don't move!! I make Taylen be very careful because the few times that she had kneeed (is that a word) me has hurt so bad that I wanted to cry. But other than that, my energy is great, I feel great all day..even mornings and I hope it continues to stay this easy. I will be 5 weeks on Thurs!!! Awesomeness! Oh and November 12 is my first sono....they may be able to tell if I have just 1 baby in there or 2...2 is what I'm going for...better not be 3 or 4!! LOL Whoa!!!!!
