Bun in the Oven - Week 6

Image by FrancoisRoche


Well we had a major scare last Friday, I started bleeding and went to emergency. My HCG level (hormone level) was taken and it indicated that things might be okay. After a two day wait we got my HCG levels taken again on Monday and they had doubled - which is what is expected if the pregnancy is progressing. I also had my first ultrasound on Tuesday and got to see that gorgeous heartbeat! So it seems that everything is okay :)


I am feeling...

Ecstatic and scared at the same time
.
So happy after seeing that glorious heartbeat
.
Very nauseous - blergh, and toast is definitely the most appealing thing for me at the moment
.
Very tired and totally lacking any kind of energy


I am thinking...

That I must get around to weaning Zoe at some stage
.
(Or hoping should I say) that nothing happens to my precious bubba
.
About how I am going to manage with 2 littlies keeping me busy!

good to hear all is okay.
and don't worry - you will manage with two or three or four - cause in the end you love them so much you have to manage :)
hope the nausea goes really, really soon.
oh and good luck with the weaning - it never worked for me

Pfew, glad to hear everything is okay!! When I'm feeling nauseous, toast is also the only thing I can tolerate.

Oh gosh, that must have been such a scare for you! Glad to hear all seems to be ok.
Are you going to find out before the birth if its a boy or girl? or will it be a suprise?

Oh wow, I was holding my breath until I got to the part where everything was ok. Seeing that heartbeat sounds like such a wondrous experience. But I do hope the nausea and other less desirable parts of pregnancy subside soon. Take care, babe!

Katie said...

Glad to hear it was only a scare and that everything is ok.

When I did my short stint of being a midwifery student a couple of years ago, I hated seeing women come in with pains/bleeding, the worry they were experiencing was heartbreaking to watch, so I can imagine how scary it was for you!
So glad to read everything is ok.
My favourite part of my placement in the clinics was getting to listen to the baby's heart beat, and watching the mothers face light up! I bet it was a real relief to hear that beautiful sound!
I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes as smoothly as possible for you, I will enjoy your updates!

(ps, I think it is really awesome you have been able to breastfeed Zoe for so long!)
