We have a heartbeat!!

I went today for my follow up dating ultrasound and we saw the heartbeat and baby! The baby is measuring 6 weeks 1 day and I calculated 7 weeks based off LMP so I definitley ovulated late! I'm now due November 3rd. but that may change again. Our little nugget's heartrate was 111 and we are already in love with him/her.

Picky Preggo?

     Today I'm around 6w5d ...I've been so nauseous and it's been an all day thing that is pretty unbearable to deal with. I can barely eat most foods because of the smell or because it tastes different. I broke down and took some zofran today because I had to work ten hours today and I knew there was no way I would make it through my shift without vomiting over everyone tossing my cookies. My appetite stinks everything sounds gross to me, or if I get food I will look at it and smell it and it will make me sick! Someone at work said "You might be having a girl" *insert happy squeals from inside* and I thought to myself "maybe" becuase I didn't have nausea this bad with J and I only threw up once or twice for the entire pregnancy. Maybe I was lucky but I feel bad complaining about this. The only thing that makes me feel better is sleeping or eating small meals more frequently. I can't wait for the second trimester when this should get better for me, in the mean time I'm a walking dead women  I'll try and rest and tough it out for the next few weeks.
   The other thing that is bothering me is the fact that I can smell everything!! My cat litter box (which DH cleans) makes me want to vomit even if I walk too close I can smell it a mile away. I can't stand the smell of onions, my sons dirty diapers (talk about repulsive), pee (toilet must be flushed at all times), anything with a foul odor makes it worse and I gagged all morning trying to clean my house. I hate eating m&m's now which used to be my favorite candy!! My favorite food right now would be a bacon egg and cheese sandwhich, it's light and keeps me full. My ultrasound is Monday so I will be speaking with them regarding the nausea I know it only gets worse from here.

All day sickness

Warning: This post is about nausea








You know that thing people call morning sickness? Well apparently I'm so lucky I get all day sickness. For the entire day I have waves of really bad nausea and a strange taste in my mouth that makes me want to gag. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling so nauseous I thought I was going to vomit and I couldn't. I haven't actually vomited yet but I would really love to so I could get some relief! This is the reason you might see less posts from me, sorry this exhastion and nausea are kicking my arse I don't know if I can be supermom afterall.

First ultrasound update!

I had my ultrasound Monday at exactly 6 weeks and to my disappointment the tech said I was way too early and there was no heartbeat yet, just a sac. They never measured anything I was just told "it's too soon"  :(

So I'm scheduled for the following Monday (exactly 1 week) to have a follow up ultrasound appointment for dating. Now I'm a nervous wreck and this is going to be the longest week ever. My dates may be wrong because I didn't use opks or chart so I have no idea when I actually ovulated I just went by my last period to estimate my due date. So I'm 6w2d according to LMP but I may be closer to 6 weeks. The tech said you can't see the heartbeat until around 7 weeks so that made me feel a little better. If they don't see anything at my next appointment they will draw blood and check my beta levels but I'm praying it doesn't come down to that. Now I feel like a fool for shooting it to the mountain tops  telling a few people because of something bad possibly happening. Symptom-wise I feel very pregnant! Nausea, fatigue, increased thirst/appetite, hormonal are just a few of the wonderful things I'm dealing with haha. Today I noticed I get verrry painful gas pains and a little indegestion...how sexy! I'm sure DH will be all over me tonight!

Strollers really cost this much?

I started telling my boss about how people were ooing and ahhing over the new stroller we bought Jace. It's nothing special, just a Chicco Liteway it only set us back $139 and we loveeee it. It's super light and stylish too :)





He then proceeded to tell me that he has a Stokke stroller which set him back $1,000. (insert jaw dropping)



Yes, he's richer than I.

Then I saw that Aston Martin has a stroller made with Italian leather and blah blah blah




The price tag on it? $3,000! So I'll stick with my Chicco Liteway stroller, thankyouverymuch.
