10 weeks

Soooooo ready for this trimester to be over. Between throwing up and not wanting to eat anything except red meat and peas, I am very ready for the second trimester. I was graduated to my OB and already had my first appointment but I didn't have a full work up yet. He did however check my BP a couple times though and it was very high, which has me very worried because I developed preeclampsia during my first pregnancy. Since then I have been watching it at home and it seems to level out beautifully when I am relaxing, so I am hoping he will allow me to take it easy and monitor it myself instead of going on a medication, which will mean I have to be referred to a high risk doctor as well. I did get an ultrasound to get my dates correct and I saw a bouncing, head banging little rocker in there with a strong heart. So other than the BP everything seems to be going well, and my crazy two year old is definitely keeping me on my toes!

7 weeks

Went to our ultrasound a couple days ago and saw one beautiful little peanut with his heart just flickering away! He measured right on time and my RE said to go ahead and schedule my first appointment with my OB here at home. Last pregnancy I wasn't released to my OB till 10 weeks so I was very surprised he is graduating me so early. So tomorrow I have to get that scheduled and I also need to call a speech therapist for Lily. Her doctor said she is way too far behind in her speech for a 2 year old and I have to get her into speech therapy. :-/ One of the disadvantages of an only child not in child care I guess.
