Pregnancy Week 8

Houston, We Have A Heart Beat!! Woo-hoo!

This week started out with more nausea and sometimes vomiting. Most of the vomiting felt more like something wasn’t sitting right and I had to let it out. It’s not the nausea/vomiting when you have a stomach virus that sends you involuntarily running to the bathroom. I’m glad it isn’t like that, that’s not a good feeling.

This week we also had our first ultrasound to hear the baby’s heartbeat and get a more accurate date on when the baby is due. it was surprising to see how much it has grown, as well as to hear its heartbeat so loud and strong at an exciting 160bpm.

Every pregnancy is different apparently, and some babies might have a higher or lower heart beat at 8 weeks.

Our current due date is May 14, 2017. I realized later this week that May 14th will also be Mother’s Day. How cool is that?! :)
