Today marks week 8 of my pregnancy, so far weeks 5-7 have been the worst, but I feel so much better physically and emotionally about everything. My appetite has come back slowly and I have more energy throughout the day. Today I had my first appointment with my Dr., she did a full physical exam and they gave me the results of my blood test. Everything came out great in my blood work and my blood type is A+ sounds good to me! The Dr. said my uterus is the right size for how far along I am, the only thing is my vaginal canal is very narrow, so if we have a large baby, it may be difficult to PUSH!:) Nothing to worry about though.
My next appointment is in 4 weeks, and that is where we will hear the baby's heart beat for the first time! I will be 12 weeks along by then, hard to believe! I recently invested in a Bella Band which is a wonderful invention! I am able to wear my regular pants unbuttoned and this nifty band holds them up! Maternity pants are expensive, so I will use this often while I am at work, while I am at home I will wear my sweat pants:)
The house is all ready for Fall and Todd and I are anxious for the holidays:) Somewhere around the end of December beginning of January we will have our appointment to determine the sex of the baby. Till then it is fun to dream and imagine:)
