11 weeks, 5 days
Noticeably, neither of us has written in our blog for almost a month, and quite a month it’s been. The morning sickness did not get any better, it was quite severe in my opinion, and I ended up having to get medicated to control it. So far, I’ve lost less than ten pounds, which is very good compared to some women with severe sickness (my sister Martha’s sister in law lost 24 pounds). Lucky for me, I should be out of the woods soon.
In other news, we had our second prenatal appointment last week. They did some quick tests to see if my glucose is good, some external palpations (is that the word). Doc says I’m progressing fine. We heard the baby’s heartbeat again, and honestly, it’s amazing. I mean, especially being so small, you don’t really have away of feeling pregnant. All you feel is sick or tired all the time. Hearing that heartbeat really affirmed that all of this is for a reason, and there’s someone in there just waiting to come out and say hello.
We do have a video, it’s kind of awkwardly taken. will try my best to get it loaded. We’re just about ready to announce to you all that we have a baby on the way. Watch out for our christmas cards in the mail!!
