Week 6 Repeat

Last week we had our 1st sonogram, a week from yesterday to be exact. Casey and I were on pins and needles... it was so cute to see how excited and nervous he was! Welp, that buble was popped very quickly.

We had our sonogram thinking we were 6 weeks and 3 days only to come to find out that we were only 5 weeks and 2 days and that we wouldn't be able to hear a heartbeat and they didn't even print off a picture for us. The only reason I have a photo of the sonogram is because on the way back to the doctors (across the hall) I went through my file and snapped some photos with my iPhone. Hey, it is my file... I can do what I want!
Seriously though, it bummed us out. We saw a small flicker and they confirmed I was in fact pregnant but when you go in thinking you are going to see/hear one thing and get totally different news, it is a huge bum factor!

The doctor told me to come back in 2 weeks and we can re-do the sonogram and hear a heart beat then. I have my next apt this coming Monday and I will be 7 weeks 2 days... I really hope the heart beat is there and the shape looks less like a little white dot.

Oh and since I am not as far a long as I thought I was... that means my due date changed. My due date was February 8th, my Papa's birthday. Now it is Valentine's Day, February 14th. Funny story, I hate Valentine's Day with a passion. I mean if you want to tell me you love me, tell me on a random day in July not on a day that everyone else feels obligated to tell their loved ones. Plus, I don't want a huge teddy bear and random chocolates that taste like crap. That being said, I know that only 2% of people actually give birth on their due date so I am thinking we will be okay... and if for some reason I do have this dumpling on Valentine's Day, it will be my 1st time I have ever received Flowers for the "holiday" (you know, since our last name is Flowers).

How I am Feeling:
I have my good days and my bad days. Last week was killer as I stayed in bed on Thursday and Friday (instead of going to work) because I had horrible migraines. Come to find out, you aren't supposed to take ibuprofen because it can cause miscarriages!

I am still in love with carbs... carbs, carbs and more carbs! Seriously, I had a box of cookies for dinner the other night because the thought of food made me want to vomit. I am trying to not eat my weigh in carbs and I am trying to continue to eat small meals every 3 hours. I am ready for the 2nd trimester when I hope I am able to go back to eating regular food without smelling it and getting sick to my stomach.

Working Out:
Y'all, I was B-A-D last week. I skipped the gym every single day due to headaches and being so sleepy. Now I have medication and I took a vow to skip my naps after work everyday this week and make myself go to the gym. Last night was night 1 and I am proud of myself. I made it to the gym and did cardio for an hour. My son comes home tonight and I plan on taking a walk with him to the park and playing for a while. My goal right now for the 1st trimester is to get at least 30 minutes of cardio in a day, if not more.

My Clothes:
They are getting tighter each day. Probably all the carbs but I have also noticed that my boobs have grown a size already... Casey LOVES that. And I have also noticed my lower abs are harder. They say with a 2nd baby, you grow faster than you do with your 1st. Gosh that is so true! I have some pregnancy clothes but need to invest in some shorts, because NONE of my shorts fit me and it is depressing. I might have had a mental breakdown crying because I am fat... Casey, being a good husband he is, swooped in and made sure to remind me I am pregnant with his child. He is a great man yall!!!

Looking Forward:
My son has been gone this past week, comes home tonight and leaves again on Friday for the month of July, so I have a lot of free time on my hands so I have been working on the nursery. I know I still have 7 months but why not get started and do it slowly so we aren't broke all at once. I have re-finished a desk and a dresser we will use as a changing table and I am going to do the crib next. The rooms theme will be yellow and gray with a touch of elephants... and no, that doesn't mean we aren't finding out the sex. We will find out the sex at the end of August. I am a planner, I need to know!

I am also looking forward to having lunch with one of my best friends, Samantha, who happens to also be pregnant. She is 26 weeks and having a girl!!! We always dreamed of being pregnant together and it happened... now to take photos once my belly starts to show!!!

Welp, that is all I got this week! Hope you are all doing well...
