8 weeks

Things have still been going well. Not really any morning sickness today. Not sure how I feel about that. It's one of those double edge sword situations. Does the absense of symptoms mean something is going wrong? Yesterday I was miserable. Due to the Zofran (morning sickness, nausea medicine) I was incredibly constipated (lol, tmi I know). Finally took something to help and it was... painful. I still haven't gained any weight, but I think I've finally stopped losing weight. I've been making sure to drink plenty of fluids and eat good food in addition to my protein shakes.

I'm doing the very best I can. It does depress me some to know that even with me doing my very, very best it might not be enough to make this little bug stay safe and growing in my uterus. I try not to think about miscarrying again, but from time to time it does cross my mind. I keep reminding myself not to count my chickens before my eggs hatch because I know that at any moment this blessing could be taken away from me. It's a hard pill to swallow, especially when so many women I know can get pregnant in the blink of an eye. I really don't know how much heartbreak I can survive at this point, and I just hope that this is finally my time.

We are telling my in-laws tomorrow that we are expecting. My parents already know; they've known since the morning I got my BFP. They live overseas so tomorrow it will technically be Christmas day for them. We're also planning on announcing on Facebook after we have our next doctor's appointment. I have a SUPER cute idea for how to do it.

 Not the best picture. So is the little pooch bloat or the start of the bump? I'm betting on bloat... lol. I do know that because of my surgery I will tend to "pop" sooner than most first time moms because I'm stretched out muscle wise like I've been pregnant before.
Symptoms: Nausea, enlarged, tender breasts (1/2 cup size already), sensitive nipples, tired a lot, feeling very lethargic, constipated.

  1. Yeah I try to limit my Zofran intake due to the fun side effects. :)


I would love to hear what you have to say!
