Half-way done with the 1st Trimester

Sorry it's taken me so long to update yall. Right when I hit 6 weeks the morning sickness began and Ive been in bed all weekend hating life. I haven't thrown up yet but to be at work with all the smells that hospitals bring is not fun.

The ultrasound on Thursday went both good and bad. Dr Westerholm determinded I was exactly 6 weeks and 1 day which changes my due date to October 28th. That means we did get pregnant on Matts birthday, Jan 24th.! hahah! (happy birthday babe!). Let me give yall a quick fetal anatomy lesson. In the 5 week the babies heart starts to form and beat. It is almost unheard of to be able to actually see the heartbeat so soon but we saw and heard it immediantly without any problem! She said it really depends on the size of the patient and the position of the baby and where it is in the uterus and everything worked in my favor!

There was one thing that concerned her though, the babies heart beat was 98 and she wanted it to be a lot in the 120's. She said it did concern her a little but that since we were doing such an early ultrasound, the heart rate will probably even out when the heart forms completely and is stronger which is at 8 weeks. I was thinking that the heart JUST formed and we need to give it another week or two before we get concerned but she seemed slightly worred about it which made me burst into tears, of course, all those hormones. She wanted me to come back in at 8 weeks for another ultrasound to make sure the heart rate was at a safe rate.

So your prayers for the babies heart beat would be great! I go back in March 25th.

Wasn't it wonderful seeing YOUR child on the ultrasound?! It's amazing! I will definitely be praying for little muguerza's heart to beat loud and fast for the doc in a few weeks. I'm sorry you're feeling crumy. I too had the nausea, but never threw up. I sometimes wished I would throw up so I would feel better. Getting up early in the morning makes the morning sickness worse I think. I hope it doesn't last to long for you.

Praying for you and your little babe! :)
