I am now in my 8th wk of pregnancy, there are days when the nausea is pretty much gone, but then days when it is full blown and I can't do anything! I haven't had much cramping, but I think it is because this is my 4th pregnancy so my body knows what to do and that is why I already have a small belly on me. I am sure it doesn't help I was only 120lbs prior to getting pregnant so I don't have much belly fat to hide a belly! :)
I have been working out almost daily for the past wk since the nausea has been letting up enough during the evenings. Just doing light cardio such as bike, eliptical, stairstepper or walking/jogging on the treadmill. Been doing lots of lunges, squats and using hand weights to keep my muscle tone with this pregnancy. Although this morning I felt really good so I ran 2 miles on the treadmill, it was by no means a fast 2 mile pace, but it felt good to run, I did notice some cramping after that so I may have pushed myself a little harder than needed to, but I will ask my doctor about that tomorrow.
Tomorrow morning Adam and I go for our first OB appt for this pregnancy and we will be getting an ultrasound, and although I have such a peace about this pregnancy and that all is fine, I still have that little worry in the back of my mind until I see/hear the heartbeat which we will be able to tomorrow. With all the changes that go on with pregnancy it is all so worth it getting to see that little baby on the ultrasound and knowing we created another child out of love and will be adding him or her to our family this summer.
I have a feeling this one is a girl and boy I hope I am right, I bought some adorable little girl onsies at the thirft store yesterday that are all pratically brand new! I was dead one with the boys so I am hoping I am right with this one as well! Although if its another boy that is fine, I just want a healthy baby with 10fingers and 1otoes!
In the next few wks I will rent a doppler like I did when I was pregnant with the boys because I love being able to hear the heartbeat at home and I think it would be neat to share that with the boys as well. It is funny that I know I am pregnant, but as soon as the smallest symptoms start to go away like sore bb's or a lack of nausea one day I begin to wonder did something happen and I just don't know it yet.. so of course my silly butt went to the dollar store yesterday and bought a cheap hpt and took it. As soon as my urine went over the test line that line showed up and dark! So I know my hormone levels are still high and it does just give me a peace of mind until tomorrow morning's appt!
Belly at 8wks!
