They should change the name

of morning sickness to all day sickness. I've officially been hit with the lovely symptom of nausea. It is all day, and very uncomfortable. The mere thought of eating anything other than water and saltines is unbearable. I've always known that this was a part of pregnancy, but I don't like it. It's not fun, and I am NOT good at dealing with it. Give me headaches, give me heartburn, give me sore boobs, I can handle it. However, the second my tummy starts hurting I turn into the biggest whiney baby on the face of the earth. Poor Brian.....he's in for a LONG first trimester. Unless, of course, I'm one of the lucky few that have nausea the entire pregnancy. Yes, I'm whining, but I'm allowed. Well, I'm off to the store to buy some more saltines, and maybe some chicken noodle soup. We'll see how that goes down. I just thought I'd share my yuckiness with you all.

6 Week OB appointment

Hello Everyone!!!

I had my second OB appointment today, and it was amazing!!! I had 6 tubes of blood taken so they can test pretty much EVERYTHING!!! I also had the best ultrasound to date. I am 6 weeks along, and the baby is doing fabulously!!! The most amazing part of the entire appointment was seeing our baby's heart beat!!! It was love at first sight!!! We are so in love with this baby, and absolutely adore watching him or her grow and develop!!! Below is the latest ultrasound picture. It's a little blurry, but that is because it is an enlarged picture. The baby is the white part in the black sac. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as our baby grows. Once we are out of the first trimester, the risk for anything going wrong is greatly reduced, so another 6 weeks to go!!!
