Week 7? Week 8? First Trimester Woes Part 1

I don’t know what week it is. These pregnancy apps confuse both Holly and I. Its either “You’re in Week 7 because its been 7 weeks since the first day of your last period” or “You’re in Week 8 because this is the 8th week since the first day of your last period technically”. I don’t understand it either way. Exciting things happening this Friday, we go for our first ultrasound to see our little peanut, which we are both excited for. There will be something so official about having a print out picture of our little blueberry, and something so amazing about creating that blueberry, all at once.

At this point, some close family and friends know about our little nugget, which is cool but has been so stressful. You never know how someone is going to react to news of a pregnancy, especially since it is such a surprise to most of our family and friends that didn’t even know we were trying, so its like a crap shoot figuring out how they’ll respond. So far its been generally positive, with some concern about our future well being, but rest be assured internet family, Holly and I have been planning this for a while and know what we’re doing…we hope.

Not so fun things that have been happening since my last post: Morning Sickness. Holly’s been having a rough time and had to be put on some anti-nausea, anti-vomiting medication this week. Not fun, but we’re hoping it will start to work soon, as eating, drinking and existing has been difficult as a result. However, bright sides to this are that morning sickness is often the indicator of a VERY healthy pregnancy, so that’s a plus. Also, it shouldn’t last forever (we hope), just until the endish of the first trimester, so here’s to hoping that will actually happen.

Other than that, we are eagerly awaiting our first meeting with the wee one on Friday. Pictures to come, I’m sure 🙂
