Wow…I am 7 weeks pregnant today, and that feels soo good to be able to say. I am still nervous. I cannot wait until next Friday, the 1st to finally be able to see the heartbeat. Once we see that little sparkle’s heart beat I will be able to sit back and really start to enjoy everything. I have no enjoyed any part of this pregnancy yet, except the fact knowing that I am indeed pregnant. I just want to see the heart beat and be happy.
Next week I will be around 8 weeks 2 days pregnant on the day of the ultra sound. If there isn’t a heart beat then we will know right then and there that I will be having a miscarriage. I feel good about it though, I really think that if I was going to have a miscarriage I would of started bleeding and everything from it already. The anxiety and knowing what I went through last time is really hard on me, and I just would do anything to never go through that again. That is exactly why my anxiety is soo high with this pregnancy.
Symptoms? Only nausea. I thought morning sickness kicked in this weekend, well it did….but yesterday and so far today nothing. I thought I was going to puke last night but I held it down…I know everyone is like “why the heck would you want to puke”? For a pregnant women that has had a miscarriage, any symptom of pregnancy is welcome until she sees that heart beat.
Xavier did the cutest thing yesterday, I have to share this. He is so excited for his baby. He told us the other night that we were having a girl and he is going to call her “Lucy”. Andrew and I actually like that name, but we already have a girl name picked out, but I think “Lucy” might end up being a nick name that Xavier calls “her” if it turns out to be a “her.” How cute would that be? If I told you the name (which I can’t yet) you would agree that it would work. Adorable. Anyway, onto the picture that I took yesterday. Xavier is obsessed with learning about childbirth. He asks questions, knows that the baby comes out of mommies vaginia, we are just very open with him.
I even gave him the option if I have a natural child birth that he can be in the room if he wants to be. Some days he says he wants to, other days he says he will stay in the waiting room. I am leaving it completely up to him….we do not mind. Well, I have been finding him videos to watch online….look at this picture I took of him watching about the development of a baby….it has to be the cutest ever. Maybe we have a future little OBGYN on our hands!
