Oh No, It's Back!

Morning sickness is back with a vengeance today! I have been doing so well over the last week and thought I wasn't going to have too much of a problem with morning sickness. Then today happened! Basically since I woke up I have been feeling extremely nauseous. I didn't actually throw up (well, I did a little in my mouth) but there were several times that I thought I was going to.

I'm also pretty sure my whole family thinks I'm insane because I'm having some really weird food situations lately. First, I asked Mike to pick me up chicken nuggets from McDonald's the other night because nothing in the house looked good and nuggets sounded amazing! But as soon as I looked at the nuggets I thought I was going to puke and wanted nothing to do with them! I ended up eating Mike's cheeseburger... And today I was at my mom's house and ate a grape only to immediately spit it out into the trash can! It was nasty! Lastly, Mike made a full blown dinner tonight that I would normally love but all I wanted to eat was potato chips and onion dip! I really hope that things get a little more normal in the second trimester like they say in all those pregnancy books because this is just crazy...

Anyways, I am so excited for tomorrow because Mike and I get to see our first ultrasound!!! I looked up online what I should expect to see at 6 weeks and everything I read says that we should be able to see the gestational sac, the yolk sac and of course the fetal pole (which is what they call the baby before it is officially a fetus). We may even be able to see the heartbeat, woot woot. But what I'm the most excited for is to finally know if one or both of the embryos implanted. Are we having twins or just one baby? Mike and I are feeling like we are having one but everyone else in my family keeps saying they think we're going to have twins! Tomorrow we shall see...

  1. Wishing you tons of luck today at your u/s! It's such an exciting thing to see the little bean for the first time. As a recent transfer into the second trimester, I will tell you that the m/s does get better but mine definitely hasn't gone away. And the cravings and aversions for weird things is still a big thing with me.
