Even with not throwing up as much, I still don’t feel okay. I have days where I parent from the couch or the bed. I have moments when I wonder how I’m going to keep going. Early pregnancy is hard for me. It just is. And last week was especially difficult. I just couldn’t do it. So, I let the blog go and spent my days surviving.
I did go to the doctor last week for my first “real” OB appointment. Even though she told me it was awfully early to hear a heartbeat with the doppler and with a retroverted uterus it would be even more difficult, I still asked her to at least try. As Ty and I prayed, that amazing whooshing sound met our ears! 170 beats per minute and beautiful!
Another thing that has me down is my weight gain. In order to stay on top of the nausea, I eat…often. The NP wasn’t real concerned and seemed to think I’d get back on top of it once I was out of the 1st trimester. Boy, I hope so!
No pregnancy photos quite yet. I just don’t feel up to it. Although, Megan (my resident photographer) has been trying to catch me off guard. This is the face she usually gets.
I really don’t know how much I’ll be posting for a while yet. It’s not exactly good blogging practice, but remember, I’m not knocking myself out anymore. And besides…I’m growing another human being. 😉
