There's a saying that goes, "life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." That's very true. We had plans for our new life here in Florida, but what we didn't realize was that there was another passenger with us when we left Texas on New Year's Eve. I found out on our 6th day here in Boca last month that our family is growing. Crazy! I've been quiet these past few weeks because I've been really sick. Every symptom in the book, and severe all day nausea. I could hardly function!
We got to see our little baby almost 2 weeks ago on an ultrasound where it was confirmed that I was 8 weeks pregnant. I honestly was scared about twins because I couldn't understand all this nausea and fatigue compared to my other pregnancies, but it's just one healthy little baby. I always get a little nervous before that first confirmation ultrasound but my fears were put aside after seeing the fast beating of the heart. It's always such an amazing feeling and we got plenty of pictures. I actually found out really early about this pregnancy. I knew since I was 3 weeks and 2 days and that's only because my body had been feeling off and I know my body. Something was up! I was so happy when I finally got to meet my new OB because she prescribed me medication for the severe nausea. I'm taking Diclegis and the first day I took the full dosage, I was a zombie so I started taking half the dosage and it started to help. What a relief! However, I'm back on the full dosage because half was no longer cutting it and thankfully my body regulated and I don't feel like a zombie though I am still very tired daily. Some days the medicine doesn't even cut it though. I was nauseous all day yesterday and it wasn't fun.
Hopefully when I get to the first trimester I will start feeling better. I'm praying because it's pretty hard when you already have toddlers to look after, a family and a business to run. Not too mention still getting adjusted in a new state. I'm currently 9 weeks and 5 days and yes already bumping along. My belly does not mess around as soon as it knows it's pregnant, though I feel like I'm definitely in that stage where I'm not sure if people think I'm pregnant or that my belly is just like this because I've had 3 kids. Haha! I'll do my first bump picture on Thursday when I'm 10 weeks and then do them every 2 weeks. I can't believe I'm having another baby!
Ps. I think it's another girl. The heart rate was 160 and the yolk sac was on the left, but we'll see. Not counting ourselves out yet. As always I'd like a boy for H, but I'd be perfectly happy with another sweet baby girl. It's now or never though. I'm not having another baby after this one. This first trimester has been so bad honestly I never want to experience this again. On top of that, we feel our family will be complete for many reasons.
Have a great Tuesday!
