8 weeks pregnant!

Quick 8 week starter story…I was not feeling many symptoms this week so I went to get an ultrasound to make sure everything was ok.  At the first it appeared that the heart rate was around 80 (extremely low and high chance of miscarriage)  2 minutes later I prayed that God would double the heart rate-but that no matter what I would love and trust Him because this is HIS baby.  The nurse did another ultrasound right after that prayer and low and behold the baby’s heart rate was 165!!!!! God is so goood!!!
How far along? 8 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 1 pounds gain.  Thanks to the help of Los Burritos 🙂

Maternity clothes? No…but I swear I can feel my stomach growing. Can’t wait!!

Stretch marks? Nope!! My sweet friend Jackie though just gave me my first lotion to prevent stretch marks! Already started using it…mmm cocoa butter!

Sleep: Still have to pee at like 4 am every morning…crazy!! Other than that sleeping pretty well!
