i used to have fun things to talk about but honestly for the last two months there hasn't been the greatest news to share...with one exception of course.
this is our little jelly bean. at the end of the week i will be 9 weeks and it feels like it's been nine years already.
the dr. wanted to do an ultra sound because of my history and the tech says that so far everything looks good and it's heart rate is normal.
you guys, i don't understand abortion. i can understand being afraid for many reasons over pregnancy and my heart goes out to the girls and women who feel that this is their only option. there is no WAY that after seeing what i saw at just 8 weeks gestation that anyone can argue that this is not a person.
there was a tiny heart just beating away in there and every time the tech would move the US machine around the baby would jump as to say, "yeah that's me, i'm right here." clearly responding to the stimulation. it is such an amazing thing to see so early on. only the size of a kidney bean but doing people things, responding. AMAZING!
i am feeling a bit better, though i do have yet another illness and other random things that i won't bore you with but my nausea is nowhere near as bad as it was over the last few weeks.
next time i'm going to share something non-pregnancy and non-sick related. :)
