The Pregnancy Diaries: 8w3d

WE’VE GOT A HEARTBEAT! – and a very happy mama! Went for my ultrasound today and saw little baby blob and a flickering HB. I think it was 163bpm so that’s good! And she measured the baby and he/she is measuring EXACTLY on with my due date! 8w3d. Which I think is pretty amazing because that means my body is VERY regular! A 28 day cycle with ovulation at 14 days. I’m so surprised since I had just stopped birth control and I didn’t think my body would be that regular that quickly. But I’m so so so happy and VERY relieved! The ultrasound tech said the cramping is usually not a problem if it’s not accompanied by bleeding which is what I thought but the CNM made me so nervous! We’re actually switching doctors because the CNMs are moving over to Valley OBGYN in Orem and there is the same clinic in Provo. Why drive to Orem for every appointment when we could go right down the street? Even though I’ll be seeing an OB now instead of the CNMs I think it will be worth saving myself all that travel time. Plus I bet the CNMs will be practicing differently now that they are with Valley OBGYN anyway.
So since I know the baby is doing great I can now be so grateful for my lack of morning sickness! How did I get so lucky?! I think the worst part of my pregnancy so far happened this morning…I had to drink 32 oz of water for the ultrasound. I barely get 10 oz of water per DAY (I know I’m supposed to drink like 64 fluid oz a day since I’m pregnant but I just can’t!) so having to drink 32oz all at the same time was killer. I still don’t feel good from it and it has been an hour and a half. You’re probably thinking “if that’s the worst part of your pregnancy, you have nothing to complain about!” You’re probably right. But drinking that much water was HORRIBLE to me. I worried about it all night last night and this morning it was such a challenge to get all that water down without wanting to throw it back up. Blah! Hopefully I’ll start feeling better later in the day.
We feel so blessed to have a healthy little growing baby! And our announcement is only 10 DAYS AWAY!! I could not be more excited! And I can’t believe I’ve kept a secret this huge for A MONTH!!
xoxo,
Marci
