Baby Blog 9

I will be 6 weeks pregnant on Thanksgiving.  The nurse says 7, but I am convinced I'm not that far along. Only time will tell, though.

I had my big doctor appointment today.  However, it really wasn't much of anything.  We just sat down and went over information.   She asked me questions about my lifestyle, health, etc.  And, in the end, concluded that it seems to be a good pregnancy.  After that, I had blood drawn in 8 vials! Oh my! They do a lot of blood work with prenatal care on post. I'm glad, though.  I feel better being on the safe side.

That was it for my appointment, though.  Everything seems good and looks good. So, now I'm booked for my next appointment on December 20th! At that appointment, I am supposed to get to see little bean on an ultrasound.

It all seems so unreal right now since I haven't had an ultrasound yet or heard baby's heartbeat.  I was hoping to hear the heartbeat today, but that's not how they do it there.  Instead, we'll do it all at my (roughly) 10 week appointment.

For now, I am glad to feel like everything is good and I pray that it continues that way.  The Lord is in control and I am continuing to learn to sit back and trust.

Right now, I am so hungry! I wonder if Thanksgiving will even be enough to satisfy my appetite?  Baby bean, you must need a lot of nutrients. The hunger is so bad that it hurts to not eat.  It feels like I haven't eaten in hours.  

Other symptoms I'm still experiencing are fatigue, moodiness, sensitivity to smells, and of course hunger.  I'm going to leave the TMI symptoms out.  Let's hope all of these things mean the pregnancy is going along well.  The main thing that I haven't had much of and still haven't had much of is morning sickness.  But maybe I just won't get it.  

Only time will tell.  For now, I am thankful on this Thanksgiving week that the Lord has blessed me with a precious, growing little life.

Not much has really been happening.  Sometimes, I worry because I'll feel that the symptoms aren't as strong as they were.  However, I wonder if I just think that because I have started to get used to certain things.  

My appointment with the doctor is on Wednesday, and I am really looking forward to it.  I have no idea what to expect.  I just know that I had to fill out a detailed informational packet tonight in preparation for the visit.  I had to confirm several times that I am not taking any street drugs.  It did make me feel good to check "no" to most of the boxes, which would be cause for concern.  However, anything can happen.

All I can do is continue to pray that little baby bean is growing and thriving.
