8w3d

I didn’t want to leave everyone hanging – but I feel like hell right now, so this update will be brief.

I had another ultrasound today to ease my worries after the spotting and cramping. The baby looks great, measuring right on track with a heartbeat of 172 now. There were no signs of any problems or anything to indicate where the spotting might be coming from. The spotting continues and I’m starting to think it’s a side effect of constipation. *embarrassed*

Here’s the picture. The baby’s head is on the left and you can see the little arm and leg nubs. :) I have an appointment tomorrow to hopefully do something about this gut-wrenching nausea.

Thank you for all of your positive thoughts and well wishes. I’m a little bit of a basket case with this baby. :)

What’s the big deal?

  1. So glad to see that pic! Spotting is so worrying, isn’t it? I spotted well in to my twentieth week with the boys…makes it very hard to relax! Really hope you get some help tomorrow with the nausea.

  2. Wow, congrats!!! I just found your blog today, and let me just say that I have shed some tears reading your posts all the way back to when your boys were born! You are one strong cookie.

    I JUST took a test a few days ago and it was positive…. Making baby number 4 as well. I still haven’t told me hubby and am also worrying he might freak. Reading that ours didn’t was encouraging. :-)

    Looking forward to more updates.
