Our Little Peanut

We had our ultrasound this morning. Good news is there is only one little baby. And I am only 8 weeks along, both the Dr. and the Ultrasound lady cannot believe that the Dr. was able to hear our baby's heart beat so soon. Eric says it is our baby with a big Heart. Becca says it is my little show off, already trying to be in the spot light and getting attention. We saw the little heart beating. It was so weird that I am only 8 weeks and 5 days along and you can already see a little baby inside of me with a little heartbeat. The Ultrasound lady says the baby and everything looks very healthy so far. Yippeee. She obviously couldn't tell if it was a girl or boy yet. I will be going back at 20 weeks to find that out.
I was able to get some medicine from the doctor yesterday which made me happy. I can tell it is definatley helping, but I was sad that I still threw up this morning. I wanted this medicine to take all those symtoms completly away. But no such luck. I still feel some nausea. But so far this pregnancy is a lot better than what I went through with little Blake. My dr. says at 8 weeks with Blake I had already lost 13 pounds and was in the hospital getting IV's. So I guess I should just be happy.
***** We can't decide. Who do you think the baby looks like? Me or Eric?? Boy or Girl?? I guess I am kidding myself, it is just a little peanut. But if I do say so myself, I can't help but think it is the cutest little peanut in the world.

Yay!!!!!! How exciting. I would say it's a girl. She's already showing off and vying for attention. Just like mine.

Yep. Girl. ;-)

I hope you post lots of ultrasound pics because I loooove looking at them.

Yay! I'm so glad it looks to be healthy. And lucky for you the medicine is working. Hopefully it continues to work for the rest of the pregnancy. :-)

It IS a cute little peanut! I am glad the baby is healthy and that you finally got to find out how far along you really are. I'm sorry the medicine didn't take away all of your nausea...I know how disappointing that can be.

Becca called and said it was THREE! And I believed her for the full 2 seconds before she told me she was just kidding.

My doctor in NY for Aubrey gave me an U/S at just about every check up. She was a mom of 4 and LOVED to watch/hear her own kids and figured every other pregnant mother did too -- she was certainly right in my case. It was so reassuring to see the baby moving and developing correctly.

All through my pregnancies (even the day before they were born) I threw up in the shower...it just got to be routine. I knew if I did it right off the bat, the rest of the day was safe for me.

I am glad you got the medicine you needed. Stay aggressive with the doctors if the meds stop working.
