We are 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. We had pretty smooth sailing the first few weeks, but about 2 weeks ago I started feeling bad. Just nauseated enough and then constipation set in. So prune juice and colace have become my new best friends. I am actually starting to like the taste of prune juice. oh yum!

We were supposed to have dinner with Dayna and Chad tonight but it has been moved until tomorrow. Earlier today I had a lingering headache that started to get worse. Bee had to call my doctor to get a Rx for migraine medicine that would be ok for me to take. After throwing up scrambled eggs, Bee finally was able to get my medicine which helped a lot!

Yesterday he gave me my valentines day gift. We went to this baby boutique and I saw this bag I had seen on the Discovery Health show “yummy mummy”. So he went back to the boutique and bought the Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag for me. It is called “fortune cookie” but it has humming birds all over it, not fortune cookies. Ha!

We had our first appointment on January 31st. It went pretty well. Bee came and got to see first hand what us women have to go through at each annual appointment. We got to see the baby, affectionately named “pea” on the ultrasound. In one of the pictures the yolk sac and baby look like a diamond ring.

We also got to hear the heartbeat which was really cool! Overall it was a great appointment… but I should mention I passed out when the took my blood. That was embarrassing. The girl first tried one arm twice but my vein just wasn’t cooperating. So then she tried the other arm. I didn’t think she got it so I turned and looked and there was the needle sticking out of my arm. Blood doesn’t bother me, but needles sticking out of my body do!
