Finally, today I am 8 weeks. We had our second ultrasound today and it was abdominal (no dildo cam) and the baby is measuring on track and the heartbeat (which we heard!) was 149 bpm. The baby looked much fuzzier on this abdominal ultrasound, but the heartbeat was so clear and strong! I can't believe such a little peanut can make such a loud noise. It was truly amazing and I am so relieved that s/he is still going strong.
Yesterday, I had a good day, not feeling so nauseous and tired. I actually took a long walk which is the first bit of real exercise I have had in a couple of months. Today, I'm tired because we had to get up early and get my labs done in Tupelo before the u/s. Hopefully, they will fax results to CCRM this time! I am still on 3 prometrium suppositories and 3 vivelle E2 patches. I will be happy to do away with the midday progesterone suppository.
My next appt is 2 weeks from today. I can't wait to start showing, which probably won't be until at least 12 weeks. I don't think it will feel real until I get a little bump.
In other news, things are really getting heated up around here over Initiative 26 (Personhood Initiative). Our governor, Haley Barbour, said he had some concerns over "ambiguous" language in the bill, but says he is undecided on which way he will vote. At least he is not backing it 100%. I'll keep everyone posted on what happens next week with this.
