13 weeks

So blessed to have made it to 13 weeks!!

I am feeling a little better, my nausea has gone from all day to 'briefly' in the morning and really heavy at night. Dinner is probably the hardest meal for me to eat--I can't eat meat and nothing sweet!

I love pineapple, pickles, salads, raw veggies with ranch, and chopped ice.

I've lost 7lbs and as my appt today I haven't gained or lost anymore since my last appt.

My sleep is none existent, I bought a belly pillow bit it isn't helping much at the moment. I pee about 3-5 times a night and the rest I'm tossing and turning....maybe I have insomnia.

I still burp like a man and all the other gross things-haha...but I'm loving every minute of this!

I have a belly doppler and at 12 weeks 4 days I was able to pick up the heartbeat. I don't listen long, just long enough to find my little bean and know everything is ok. :) it's an amazing since of relief!

My blood results will come back next week for genetic screening-and my next appt is on the 28th! ❤

Gods Great!!

I was lucky enough to be gifted a doppler and I probably listened once a day early on, not quite as often once they started moving all the time. As you said I didn't listen long , just long enough to know everyone was still ok. I'm guessing that was because of the the years of IF. But I was very thankful, it helped esse my mind most days. Ginger helps a lot with nausea. So maybe try a ginger tea at night when your feeling your worst. Hopefully that will pass soon. Don't be afraid to share all these issues with your doctor on your next visit. They may have some idea/positions to get you some sleep and help with the nausea. We are all Bertrand you paying and hoping for you! <3

I am so happy for you! I just started following you and after doing some back reading (on your blog) I realized our journeys are very similar. We finally welcomed our sweet girl in May! It is the B.E.S.T feeling ever. We are over the moon in love with our child and my husband says I am obsessed. I cannot wait to watch you enjoy this experience as well. It is LIFE changing:)

Try Preggo Pops or Lemon Drops for nausea. It helps/ed for me to have something a little sour to suck on! You look great! : )

I am so happy for the both of you and your extended families. This baby will bring so much joy to your Mom. I know because I am Nana to Micah whom we waited a very long time for. Her Mom lost a set of twins before we were blessed with a healthy baby girl.

So glad to hear the nausea is subsiding some. That's a welcome, but still icky feeling! Pregnancy insomnia is really common, too. I have had it both pregnancies, and it comes and goes throughout. I'm not sure there's much you can do about it; I just see it as prep for not getting much sleep with a newborn! You look amazing and happy...you absolutely have the pregnancy glow!
