|Baby Blondie's first picture|

First OB appt.
Baby Blondie's little heart is beating at 122 beats a minute and he/she is measuring at 6 weeks exactly (I'm 6 weeks, 2 days) although the baby was really close to my uterine wall which made it harder for the tech to measure. D was there for the u/s but not the rest of the appointment because he had to get back to work. I'm so glad D was able to be there even though it put him behind for the rest of the day. He took the u/s picture with him back to work, but brought it home so we could scan it. He's going to keep it on his wall at work. I haven't had any more spotting since Saturday. I had my progesterone draw for PPVI and I'll be getting my PIO injection this evening.
I did decide to switch obs since my ob basically said if I want to do a natural birth I'd be better off switching to a different ob and even gave some recommendations. I made my appointment with the new ob and it'll be on September 15. I've got to call and see if they are going to do an u/s with the appointment (and try to convince them if they aren't planning to).
I'm feeling quite nauseous, but I still haven't had true morning sickness quite yet. Last night and this morning were pretty close though. I can't eat meat (or really talk much about it). I'm pretty tired and I have get up a lot during the night to pee. I don't really have any breast tenderness or anything. I'm feeling bloated, but I don't think that I've actually really changed any yet. I have still be having pressure mainly on my left side, but my corpus luteum is on my right ovary so I don't know what that's from. It's really funny that the baby so much smaller still than the corpus luteum but already has a heartbeat.
D would like me to let everyone know that he's awesome (and a goofball). D is awesome because he's in cleaning the kitchen and making my dinner while I sit on the couch and rest.
My brother took D's old car (D's now driving our truck and I still have my car) so he could drive back to school (here's Friday's post about the accident...he's fine). My parents are talking about basically transfering that car into their name and then D and I would get a new car (new to us at least) once my parents get the check and they'd help us with the down payment or whatever.
