So, I went to the doctor yesterday, and they confirmed that I am pregnant....so it's official. PREGNANT! I'm 32 years old, so this was definitely a surprise, but at this point we've decided that it was meant to be. The angst is fading and excitement is growing. I still feel a bit weird about everything, but I hope that will go away over time.
So the important things. I'm currently 6 weeks & 4 days pregnant, and my due date is listed as July 9, 2017. So where does all of that mean?
About the baby:
Currently, baby is about the size of a lady bug. Primitive blood has started to move through the tiny body, and the spleen is beginning to form. It's growing and before long a heartbeat may be able to be heard. Whee exciting things.
In general, I feel pretty great. I'm not as exhausted as I felt when initially pregnant with Orion. I have gotten a few of the sharp hormonal headaches that I got last time, but those are rare so far. Unfortunately, I do seem to be experiencing some nausea. I haven't gone full morning sickness yet, but I have felt queasy for about a week now, but it's pretty mild so tolerable for now. I'm trying to just stay hydrated, and started taking prenatal vitamins yesterday.
