I have been a happy prego mommy, that's for sure.
I've had very little symptoms and been feeling pretty dang good. I try not to complain about anything, since there is so little to complain about, but I have been exhausted and recently found out that I'm slightly anemic - so that explains that! I have been taking an herb called Yellow Dock and I'm starting to really notice an increase in my energy level and proud to say I can now keep my eyes open past 8pm. Yay!
Let me break down the 1st trimester for ya!
Exhaustion, gas (really bad - poor Geoff), heartburn (from about weeks 7-10)
Cottage cheese, veggies, tofu, thai food, prenatal yoga, Geoff telling secrets & kissing baby, talking to baby in the car/shower/gym - wherever really, sharing our news with family & friends, listening to the heartbeat, feeling my belly grow - oh man, the list goes on!
Meat, especially chicken (this is getting a little better - thankfully) & stinky people.
The day we found out! August 14, 2010
Today we went in to meet our referring doctor (more on that later) and the nurse offered to do an ultrasound. Since we hadn't had one yet we decided to go for it and it was the most AMAZING thing ever. All my lady friends told me it would be, but I didn't really understand until I saw it. It was breathtaking, emotional and seeing baby overcame Geoff and I with pure joy. I have to say, he/she is definitely the cutest 15 week old baby EVER, especially when the little one stretched, moved around and gave us what looked to be a high five. :-)
I hope you follow me as I share my adventure with you!
