Progress

So, I'm in my 11th week now and feeling great! I've been sooooo lucky not to have hardly any morning sickness. I've mostly been tired and I hate to say it...constipated...(more water please).

We got to hear the heartbeat last week, which was pretty amazing. It was only for a split second and I almost missed it because I was gabbing so much with the midwife, but W heard it right away and his face just lit up.

I told everyone at work last week and they are all so ecstatic. I am going to have a lot of support from my work family. It's almost like they are all getting a new grandbaby or niece or nephew for themselves.

I am having a lot of mixed feeling about baby and our future life with baby. I guess that is natural. I'll try and write about it some more this week. I'm going to try and do ICLW again. We'll see how it goes....

Here's my first belly shot at 7 weeks--pretty much no belly....just big boobs.

Congrats on your pregnancy! My DH is a music guy too (drummer), he always hears the heartbeat and can tell me how fast it is almost instantly...

I also use midwives (mine are nurse midwives though) and I love them. They have stuck with me even though I became high risk (I see a MFM specialist too). Good Luck with yours! ICLW...

Congratulations! I'm really happy that this finally happened for you.

We're still in the "will I ever see 2 lines on anything other than ruled paper" phase, so your story gives me hope.

Wishing you all the best!
