Hi everyone! Well, I'm 9 weeks today and I finally feel like we can get excited about this baby. This pic is from my 2nd ultrasound last week at 8 weeks (why yes, I instagrammed my Lil Gummy Bear!), and everything looked "perfect", according to my doctor. We even heard the heart beating! 164 beats per minute! I've been released to my regular OB, and my first appointment there is one week from today. This is really happening!
Thanks for your kind, supportive words earlier in the thread. I've been purposefully OFF google and other sites because they can really freak me out! I've just been holding my breath... I don't know why I've been so scared, but I am getting better. Physically, I'm definitely having pregnancy symptoms at this point. My nausea picks up around 6 pm and I feel totally awful by bedtime. Mostly just sore breasts and nipples, tons of heartburn and burping, and rolling nausea. Thankfully I don't throw up, but I've had dry heaves a couple of times. I'm the opposite of "morning sickness" because mornings I feel great! ha.
DH and I already love this Lil Gummy Bear so much! I read everyone's posts and I can't wait to get further along... I think this bond will just get stronger and stronger.
Boots, congrats on a BOY!!!
I'm definitely looking into Hypnobirthing. If anyone remembers from the TTC thread, I did Hypnofertility last year and loved it.
