Baby's first photo



Well, thankfully, as you can see, there's something in there!

Our little flower measured in at 2 days ahead with a healthy heart rate of 159 bpm.

We've been released to our OB.

Our first OB appointment is November 6.

Thank you God!

Oh and if morning sickness is any indication of a healthy baby....then we've got a winner! I feel like crap morning, noon and night! Loving it of course but my word. Ginger ale is my new best friend. Any suggestions to help ease the queasiness would be greatly appreciated.

One day at a time.

How wonderful. I can relate to your constant yuckiness though. For my entire first trimester the only thing I could always keep down was peanut butter on bread. Sandwich form or toast, that was it. Even brushing my teeth made me gag. But it is a sign of a growing baby, and that makes it all worth it!

Shawna said...

YES!!

Been stalking your website to see the good news!

Lemon drops always worked great for morning sickness. Also, Ritz crackers are a good snack.

So happy to hear this!!!

I had morning sickness for the whole first trimester... honestly, the only thing I could eat was spaghetti or fruit cups, mostly peaches. I wish I had a cure all, but I never found the answer! Best wishes!

We are SOOO excited for you guys!

Yay for your sweet flower!! I had terrible morning sickness with my second pregnancy for the first five months...then I realized it was my pre-natal vitamin making me so sick since I took it in the morning. So, I took that after dinner every night and away went my crappy-all-day-long feeling. I ate a few saltine crackers along the way too which helped with the first pregnancy for sure! Good luck and hope you start feeling better soon!

Great Picture! So happy for you both!
Congrats!

Saltine crackers always worked for me. I carried them everywhere I went! Whenever I felt sick, I ate a few, and it helped! Nausea means nice high HCG levels. So it's a good thing!
HUGS!!

AJ's mommy said...

Love it!!!! I have no help with morning sickness.. as I was one of the lucky ones without it. I bet you will get some great responses though!

Olive said...

I wasn't sick myself....but heard that if you are before you even sit up in yoru bed eat a cracker. ONe should be enough. BUT, dont' sit up. Dunno who told me that but she said it worked for her!

Karen said...

I found Minty gum to work for me!

Heidi said...

And what a beautiful first photo it is!!!

Rebecca said...

Try B Natal lozenges (I liked the sour apple flavor). They are vitamin B lozenges that completely took the edge of the nausea for me when I was pregnant. I couldn't find them at the pharmacy, so I ended up Googling them and finding them online...

Congrats again!

Naomi said...

YAY!!! Congratulations! There is nothing more beautiful than a little growing baby!! So happy for you guys!

loony said...

Sarah said...

just eat. that's what DP did. Crackers. Ovaltine. Take your folic acid. drink smoothies.

oh, and remind yourself that it will pass.

Kelly said...

peppermints/peppermint oil is known to calm down the queasiness. good luck and congrats!

Carrie said...

Oh my gosh. You have a ladybug. She is so cute. Saltine crackers were my friend for first three months. Also no coffee or bacon. Brings up bilious feeling immediately. No even smelling bacon cooking. It was weird but I could never drink coffee for nine months. Maybe it was natures way of protecting the baby. I am over the moon seeing this ultra sound. Finally.
