These posts will be going up on Thursday/Friday of each week and will focus specifically on this pregnancy. If you're not in a good place, please feel free to pass it over. Take care of you!!
In the mean time, we're adopting a new kitty! His name is Sora and he's coming to live with us in August. Yay!
We made it to six weeks! We had an ultrasound this morning and saw one adorable little white smudge with a flickering heartbeat (aww!) measuring exactly on target. Praise God! We are going back for one more ultrasound on July 22nd and will then be released from care.
I've yet to have any cravings or aversions. No serious morning sickness either, except for some nausea if I lay down too soon after eating or drinking. I've been really trying to focus on the quality of the food I eat (lean protein, whole grains, fresh fruit/veggies) while keeping the actual quantity of calories within a normal range. After all, we're nowhere close to eating for 2. More like 1.01 at this point. My abdominal wall remembers pregnancy well and has already given up. Boo! I'm hoping to stick in these pants for at least another four weeks. Let's watch!
How about we wrap up with a quick pic of our little smudge? Although R is already convinced it's a boy, I'm trying to stay neutral and am calling this little one Dim Sum. Hee!
