We have a heartbeat!

November 14, 2008 at 9:34 pm 3 comments

I saw Dr. S. for a check on the babe yesterday.  Everything looks great and we saw a strong heartbeat.  I had a bunch of blood drawn, got some vitamins, and talked about some things.  I’ll see him every 2 weeks since I’m considered high risk due to my history of PIH/pre-eclampsia.  He thinks with my weight loss this year, it will really help and I’ll have a relatively uneventful pregnancy.  I also did some research about sleep apnea and pre-eclampsia and apparently there is a connection.  Hopefully being on CPAP now will help that too.

I’m feeling ok.  I’m really tired, sleeping badly since I’m up 3-4 times a night to pee.  I haven’t had any morning sickness.  I have had some queasiness but no throwing up.  I’m hungry all the time.  I see Dr. M on December 3rd.  I am kind of hoping he’ll give me a tiny adjustment because this constant hunger is just insane.  Dr. S. has no problem with me losing weight through the pregnancy.  I didn’t gain any weight with Hailey and only 19 lbs with Christian, so it’s likely with the band I won’t gain or will lose.  As long as baby is growing well and everything, I’m not going to worry about it.

Here is my ultrasound picture from yesterday.  You can’t tell much right now.  LOL  This is 7 weeks, 6 days, so right on target.  Due date is 6/26/09.

    Hi Jaime, this is such great news! Don’t worry about your family, they are probably going to be thrilled. Why wouldnt they be?? Maybe they will be shocked, but I am sure they will also be thrilled. Hopefully, I am right. Please let me us know how that works out with the announcement to the family.
