Baby Mish-Mash Update

I have a ton to post about so, I thought I would lump all the pregnancy related stuff into one post.

On Wednesday Augsust 25th, I was officially release by the fertility doctor to a regular OB. We did get an ultrasound that day at 8 weeks which was shown in the previous post. I will have my first OB visit on Sept 9th, at which we will get another ultrasound...that hopefully will look more like a baby and less like a blob. We will also get to hear the heartbeat for the first time. Up until now that tiny little heart has been to small for us to hear on the outside. So, we are looking forward to that. Here is a picture of us with Dr. Butler at our last visit (or Dr. Babymaker as I like to call him) Three cheers for Dr. Butler, he is a brilliant man!

So far, I have felt pretty good. The only two things that seem to bother me is being extremely's like having mono all over again, and food and I seem to have some issues. Most of the time, especially in the evening, the thought of food makes me sick and if I do eat I have raging heartburn. So I eat very little at night. Other than that it hasn't been to bad. Oh, on second thought, those round ligament pains are no joke, but they are not as frequent as they were a few weeks ago.

I also wanted to be able to see my tummy changing (I say that now, 5 months from now I will probably feel very different about it!) So, I took shots at 1 and 2 months. You can't really see any difference right now, except for the fact that I look much more tired in the 2nd picture and a little thicker.
