Ultrasound update

Well Peanut looks great!  Measuring ahead a few days at 11 weeks 4 days and has a very strong heartbeat.  We didn't get to see him move to much but she must have been moving a lot when they were trying to get his heartbeat on the doppler cause all they could hear was her moving around but could never get the heartbeat.  I have to admit that had both mom and dad panicking a little bit.  We are so relieved that our baby looks good.  Dr. S doesn't want to see us back for 5 WHOLE WEEKS!!  I don't know how I am going to make it that long.  I am a nervous wreck every day, I really need to find something to take my mind off of it all.

As for me, I woke up this morning with the worst headache ever and my stomach refused to let me take anything for it, even after Skeet was sweet enough to run to Maverick at 6 a.m. to buy me Tylenol and a Sprite.  I have been able to keep some water and a piece of toast down since then so Dr. S just told me to let him know if the headache comes back or if the vomiting gets worse.  I DO NOT want to go to the hospital so I am taking it easy at home and praying that by tomorrow I feel somewhat normal again so that I can make it to the Wave of Light Memorial!

If you can't make it we will be there for you. I am so happy that she is so active....I bet you can't wait to feel that movement yourself. I am sorry you feel so badly that totally sucks. I had migraines my entire pregnancy I never got morning sickness. I need to come and rub the belly. I can't have Loretta coming after me. I love you Lou
Love Kate

I think at 12 weeks you should start posting belly pictures! Wait, we're talking about you. You probably won't have a belly until 20 weeks. :) Hope you feel better soon.

How about you and I go in on a doppler together, then we can hear our little ones heartbeats anytime. I went to labor and delivery today, because I didn't think she was moving enough. Heartbeat was good, but before that the flashbacks of my incident with Nicolas came to me. I think we just have to take it one day at a time.

Congrats on everything going great I still keep you in my prayers. Ginger ale really helped me with my morning sickness.

YAY!!! I am so glad to hear Peanut is good, and moving like crazy. :) What a good sign!! I really feel for you with the headaches. Take it easy, and maybe get a blessing. Those always worked for me. I let God be my medicine when I was pregnant. YAY again!!!

Hi Candi,

I just want to thank you again for letting us come and meet you and share in that tender evening with you. Thanks also so much for the Beautiful note pads, pens, and gift bag! Tori is the queen of leaving notes for people all around the house, and she is SO excited to have such cute paper! It was the perfect gift (Of course I told her she has to share some with me! :) ) I hope you are feeling great and that your friend who was in the car accident and her baby are okay. Thinking of you often~Beckie
