We knew for about 3 weeks before we started telling our friends (which was the hardest thing to keep quiet.. ever) because we wanted to have an ultrasound before we started telling people. Just to make sure everything was a-okay. We had an ultrasound at 8w1d and the tech said everything looked perfectly normal. We saw our little baby in there moving around and the flicker of the heartbeat. She said it looked strong. It was truly one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I cannot wait until we get to see our baby again! Our next appointment is in about 2 weeks, and I'll be 11w3d.
Our little nugget at 8w1d. Even though it's pretty blurry, it's definitely the most beautiful thing I've ever seen! We're praying that the rest of the 1st trimester (as well as the rest of the pregnancy) goes smoothly.
Right now I'm 9w1d and want to barf every 15 minutes. I mean, some days are better than others.. but the bad days are really bad. I swear it lasts all day long. The things that absolutely do not agree with me include: anything with red sauce (spaghetti, lasagna, etc), bananas, the smell of the dishwasher, strawberry yogurt (not the best coming back up), meat, eggs, milk. I'm sure there's more and the list grows every day. I'm ready for this part to be over with now. And I'm sure my husband is too. :)
