For all pregnancy posts go HERE
I’m so excited and relieved that I have finally been able to share our incredible news with you all. Thank you to everybody who joined in on my live Facebook videos before the big reveal. It was so hard keeping this secret from all of you and I’m so glad that you are all finally in. on it! I am six weeks along now and I am so excited about our new little one. Here is a little update on what has been going on with me in week 6 of my pregnancy.
Heartburn ( tons of it )
Oh, my gosh, you guys. I forgot about the heartburn. I have a huge jar of chewable to soothe my tummy that Eric is constantly having to fetch for me. It wasn’t so bad at first and I thought I might get off easy this pregnancy, because it is only one baby. NOT A CHANCE! this baby is kicking my but in the heartburn department!
Start of Morning Sickness
Of course There is no getting away from morning sickness. This is a major part of my daily routine now. I am constantly drinking water to stay hydrated and I am always in the middle of a battle with my stomach about how much food I should be eating. My appetite some days is non existent, and when I do get hungry, I often have great difficulty keeping anything down. This has been my biggest struggle so far.
Feeling Really Tired
On top of the other symptoms, I have also been feeling very fatigued. I don’t remember this from the last pregnancy, but I am always needing to take breaks and give myself a rest. Not sure what that’s about, but I’m hoping it means baby is growing strong!
Saw the baby’s heartbeat on ultrasound – 124 heartbeat
My favorite thing so far is finally getting a heartbeat. The baby’s heart showing up on ultrasound is such an exciting and happy moment. Eric was with me in the room and we both were beaming when we say the little flicker. Baby clocked in at 124 beats per minute!
