8 Weeks

Had my first Dr's appointment today and found out that I'm only 8 weeks along and I'm due on the 7th of January (one day before Lautala turns 2).....

Since I'm so early in the pregnancy, we weren't able to hear a heartbeat, which totally sucked because I was super excited about it.....but he's letting me come back in 2 more weeks just to hear it....and to ease my mind because I've had so many miscarriages.   I feel good about this one though......I mean, I've been super sick and sleeping all the time!  I feel like I wanna throw up all the time, but I don't......so I walk around all day long with that feeling.....it's not the best feeling in the world!   Nothing really sounds good to eat, except crackers and sprite.....and the smell of anything cooked in grease makes me want to throw up even more!  :(  Oh the things we go through when we're pregnant..........it's worth it though and we're so excited to be having another one!

Since I'm due on the 7th of January.......but I have to have a c-section......and I have IHC insurance.......they'll take me a week early, but no earlier......I mentioned to the Dr that that would fall on New Years Eve....and he said "well, looks like you'll have a new years eve baby then"......hahaha  what a great way to ring out the old year, and to start a new year with a new addition to our family!!  Love it!

I am so happy for you guys as well!I almost feel sorry for you as I hated everyday of the first trimester as I too have had those same exact feelings! Maybe when you get better we can both go eat something that won't make you gag!! January is a good month! A New Years Baby sounds like the perfect way to ring in the New Years!! Lucky you.. Hope you feel better soon.. BTW it was so nice seeing your beautiful face as well!!
