I said I would try and keep the updates to a minimum so I don’t bore you with baby talk. I’m giving you fair warning right now though – I can only hold it back for so long! 🙂
So today I’m six weeks, six days. My first appointment was last Friday and I really liked the office I visited. It took a little research to find a good doctor here and I feel good so far which is good. Things are so different here compared to what I’ve been through in the past back up north. Everything went fine at the first appointment which was a relief. I’ve also gotten some information from my HR office at work about insurance and things like that so I can start making plans and will have a better idea of what’s covered with our insurance and what’s not.
My next appointment’s next Friday for my ultrasound. Carter thinks there’s two babies (a boy and a girl) and Corbin thought there might be eight but thought better of his guess once he thought about actually having eight babies at one time. We’ll see who’s right next Friday…so long as the baby’s healthy the rest is just details. (I would secretly love to have to call hubby next Friday and tell him it’s twins….)
With the boys, I never really had too many symptoms or problems during the pregnancy itself. This time is the total opposite. I don’t think I’ve ever been so sick or so exhausted in my life. Monday night I was sick from 10 at night until 4:45 Tuesday morning. I’m still recovering from that. I hoping that this will all pass in a few more weeks and just keep trying to think of the “prize” I’ll get at the end. On top of my issues, Carter’s got bronchitis so he’s got medicine to take now and he’s not feeling the best.
I’ve been trying to get on a schedule this week now that Corbin’s back in school. Hubby’s leaving for Maryland Sunday morning so it’s all going to fall on me for the next two weeks. I know I’ll be able to do it all, I just know that it’s going to be a lot of work and I’ll be totally exhausted by the time we get to Disney for Labor Day. I’m a little worried that I won’t be able to enjoy Disney because I’ll just want to sleep and rest.
That’s the basic update right now. I’ve got to start picking things up here and there. My only purchase so far has been some wipes that were on sale that I had a coupon for. Once I know everything’s ok with the ultrasound, I’ll start stocking up on diapers and things like that. Clothes will hold off until we find out what we’re having for the most part.
For those who have kiddos, how did you deal with the first trimester?
