Wow has time gone by fast.

I can't believe that it's been so long since I have posted! Being tired while pregnant is no joke. I haven't felt like doing anything until the last few days. Today I am 14 weeks 3 days. It's amazing how quickly this is going without me even noticing. It all seemed so slow, but in all reality, it's going by fast. I've had 3 more ultrasounds since my last post. Baby is doing beautifully. I did find out officially that I have type II diabetes. So that is a bit scary for being pregnant but I'm doing my best to control my blood sugars to keep my baby healthy. My blood pressure had been doing great so far so that is wonderful. April 23rd is my anatomy ultrasound and I can't wait to find out what I am having! Nothing too eventful in the pregnancy. I have had spotting on and off, but all turned out to be okay. I really never got morning sickness that bad, I had it for a few short weeks and it wasn't that bad. I've been really really tired but that is a bout all. Lately I've had a crazy appetite and I want to eat everything but at the same time I can't because my blood sugars. So that kind of sucks.
Within the last few days I've gone from being positive I would breastfed and there was no way I wouldn't, so being positive that I'm not going to and I'm going to formula feed. I've been going back and forth so much in my mind, but when it comes down to it, I just don't think that personally I can breastfed. Maybe I will change my mind again but at this moment I am formula feeding 100%. But we still have a long road a head of us, and we will see what happens :)

My baby is now a baby!

So I had another ultrasound on Feb 4th and I was actually measuring ahead of where I should have been, so my due date is now Sept 7th and on the day of my ultrasound was measuring at 9 weeks 1 day. So today I would be 9 weeks 4 days. It was so amazing. It actually looked like a baby this time, and we got to see their little arms and legs waving and kicking all over, and he/she must take after their daddy because they were dancing all over in there. It was so amazing and more than I was expecting. I am so in love with it already.

I've been feeling okay. Morning sickness did start probably a little over a week ago but nothing too bad. I've probably only thrown up 4 times total but EVERYTHING makes me gag and dry heave. But I don't feel that bad, not to mention I wouldn't care if I WAS feeling really bad. I never imagined I'd ever be pregnant and I am so happy. 
I was finally released from my reproductive endocrinologist and am now going to see a OB. My first OB appointment is on the 16th. I'm really excited because I want to address somebody about my high blood pressure and high blood sugars. I've been really worried about that and want to get that under control ASAP. 
Other than that not much new for now.

First Ultrasound

So I FINALLY had my first ultrasound on Friday and it was the most amazing experience of my life. Only 1 little baby!!! Hearing and seeing that little heartbeat was so amazing. Today I am 6 weeks and 6 days (my ultrasound was on 6 weeks and 2 days) I'm due Sept. 12th and the little heartbeat was 130BPM. So amazing. I have another ultrasound on Feb. 4th (I will be 8 weeks and 3 days) and then I should be released to a OB. I am so in love with that little peanut growing in there already.

The pictures didn't turn out the best :( We got to see MUCH more on the screen. But you can see the little itty bitty baby right under where it says Baby. <3 I love you little peanut.

I'm feeling pretty good actually. Not really much morning sickness yet. A little nausea once in awhile, but nothing too major. Lots of heartburn, and all I'm craving is spicy food so that's a bad mix, haha. I've been REALLY tired and my breasts are super sore. But other than that, I'm feeling good!

So, I'm actually feeling great! My Beta came in yesterday at 316! So my levels increased perfectly and I don't have to do anymore blood work. I would be about 5 weeks pregnant. My first ultrasound is scheduled for January 20th! I'm so excited and scared all rolled into one. I don't know how I'm ever going to make it to the 20th. I'm also very anxious to see how many babies are growing in there since I could have released 4 eggs! With how low my HCG levels are though I'm really thinking that it's probably only 1, possibly 2. I've had a lot of cramping, that started before I even knew I was pregnant. But no spotting, so I'm trying not to worry too much. But of course it's hard not to worry. But other than that my symptoms so far are fairly minor. My boobs are SORE, I'm constipated, and I'm tired. Today I noticed that my sense of smell is off, but that just started today and not sure if it's going to last. Hopefully not! I've been pretty gaggy too, but not really "morning sick" yet, just certain things make me gag and I'm pretty picky at what I eat now. BUT it isn't bad. It's all so exciting and I'm loving it. I can't wait to be a momma <3
