Oh my gosh, I am just so excited! First of all the last 3 days I have only thrown up about 3 times per day (versus 10+ for the last 5 weeks!). I am seriously hoping it's not a fluke, and I am really turning around. So I go in and I gained SIX pounds in ONE week!!!!! I almost fainted! But the doctor said it's absolutely fine, because I was so dehydrated before, I just had no fluid in me, and she said since I lost a few pounds I am really only up 3-4 pounds, and I am a quarter of the way through my pregnancy, so that's absolutely perfect she said.
Then she tried for the heartbeat on the doppler and couldn't find it I was like oh man, bummer. And then she said, "don't say bummer, you get an ultrasound!"
WOOOHOOO! It was so cute The baby was moving around and everything. Oh my gosh it was just sooo adorable! And it was weird cuz last night I was laying on my belly and it just felt weird on my right side, like it was harder over there or something and I thought to myself, I think the baby is hanging out on that side. And sure enough when she did the u/s there it was over on the right! So that's pretty cool! Baby is measuring 11 weeks, and I am 10 weeks 4 days today. Doc said that's perfect, didn't change my due date or anything. Heartrate was in the 160's
So, my doc said she wanted to take a peek down there even though it was super early, she said she likes to look and see if she can get an idea. And she said there'sno guarantee this early, but she said she doesn't see any boy parts..she said that she could be wrong cuz it's still so early, but I have had a strong feeling lately it'sa girl too, so I would not be suprised in the least if it's a girl. It was kind of cool just to get an idea. I have my 18.5 week u/s schedule for October 28th YAY! 8 more weeks til I know FOR SURE!
I was so bummed Dh wasn't there. I told him not to ask for it off cuz it wasn't any big apt and thenI go an get an u/s. Oops! The doc gave me 3 great pics, here they are:
The one above is my FAVORITE! You can see the little legs, and knees and feet, and the belly and head, and you can even make out where they eyes, nose and mouth are. And you can see right between the babies legs too AWWWW
Next one: almost the same as above but not as clear
And lastly, the heart beat..so precious!
Oh and says Spurlock cuz i still havent changed my name since I got married Oops, I really need to do that!

Oh thanks, me too! I really feel like I've turned a corner. I'm just praying it lasts! But even if not, she has the in-home care thing on hold for me. They got it all approved with my insurance and everything. But basically, its not in home care even though they call it that lol...I'd go to a place, theyd give me my IV and I'd go home. Sounds like a pain to me! But nice to know that option is there if I end up needing it. Plus, just seeing the baby and seeing it move made it all so much more real and made it all feel so much more worth it! I was at the point where I was wishing I wasn't pregnant, and oh my gosh, I feel terrible for even thinking that now! It was just the sickness talking, because this baby was planned and Dh and I both want it so much, but I was just so DONE with being sick. Anyways, I am so glad I have a wonderful doc. Oh and she recommended "A child is born". It;s a book you can find on amazon really cheap. She recommended I get it to show the pics to my girls, especially the little one, because she said pregnancy just seems SOO long for them to wait! So I am definitely ordering it! I can buy it for a penny on amazon LOL
