I had my first ultrasound today and it was amazing! Not only did we get to see our little grain of rice, but we got to see it's heartbeat! It was so beautiful! It was overwhelmingly reassuring to see that little glimmer on the screen and that tiny little peanut.

I saw my baby today!!

My levels today were over 6000, which is perfect! Yay!!

And, I'm 5 weeks 3 days along, meaning this baby has stuck around longer than the other 2. :)

I've been irrationally worried this weekend and I'm not sure why, so this was a huge relief to hear this news!

Now I just have the ultrasound on Friday, then I'll make an appointment with Dr Marjzrak and go from there. The nurse I talked to said that sometimes at 5-6 weeks (I will be 6 weeks on Friday), they can't always see anything, so if that's the case, I'll come back again in a week. But I really hope we can see something this Friday!

Blood Tests and Ultrasounds

I've had 2 blood tests done to check my HcG levels, and I'll have them checked once more on Monday. On Wednesday, they were 976, and yesterday, they were over 2200. According to Dr Marjzrak, that's normal, and "it means you're probably pregnant, which you were probably planning on." (That's a direct quote! I like him, he's funny!) So now I have an ultrasound scheduled for next Friday morning!!! I get to see my baby!!!!! I'll keep posting as more updates come! I'm guessing I'll be in quite a bit at the beginning, just to make sure everything is going smoothly, so I'll have lots of updates!

And so it begins...

I'm finally joining the club... the baby club that is! That's right, people, I'm pregnant! :D

I found out on Tuesday. I'll be 5 weeks tomorrow, due November 19.

The best news is that I'm feeling queasy pretty much all the time! Why is this good news? Because I was not sick with either of the babies I lost, and alot of my friends and family who've had miscarriages were not sick. So I'm embracing the nausea. So far, I haven't thrown up, so I think I'm doing just fine. :)

I was in yesterday for a clinical pregnancy test and also to measure my HcG levels. I'll have them checked again tomorrow, and once more on Monday. As long as those levels are rising like they're supposed to, I won't need to go in to see Dr Marjzrak until about 10-12 weeks. I haven't heard back from the clinic yet on the test done yesterday.

I've officially resigned from the OHCC kitchen. We decided that 60 hour work weeks are way too much for me to handle. Plus, it's not very appetizing for the cook to be sick the whole time!

The biggest change that this creates is that we're now not moving in December. Now we're looking at next May, after graduation.

I'll do my best to keep this up to date as time goes on! Keep us in your prayers!
