We had our First u/s

Our first ultrasound was one week ago from today. Baby looked great, with a strong heartbeat of 126 which is excellent for the then 6 weeks 4 days gestation. I am now close to 8 weeks. The morning sickness is in full night and day swing. I will be honest......I am miserable. Morning sickness does get harder each time because there is so much more to do and being sick does not lend well to caring for a large family as anyone can relate. My kids have really had to pick up the slack where I am physically almost incapable at this point. I am puking 2-5X a day right now and nauseous all day in between. Its terrible. We are all trying to keep pushing the laundry through and keep clean plates so we can eat the next meal. I did buy a large stack of paper plates and plastic forks and plastic cups and that is helping a lot with the dishes. I am hanging in there, but it may be a bit before blogging can become regular again. I will try to update as I have enough energy to do so.

I hate the begining of pregnancy. That is why I am never going to do it again LOL I literally feel like someone sucked the life out of me.

Hi

One thing that has helped my through morning sickness is Motion Sickness Bands or SeaBands is another name for them. When I used them, I found my nausea levelled out and while I still felt sick the urge to vomit was not as strong. Helped me to get through the day!

Hope it passes for u soon!

Congratulations! What wonderful news!! Sorry about the morning sickness--im sick the whole way through:( last two pregnancies went two weeks "over" and i was still sick. BUT it is all worth it, even on days like today when all my family members are at their worst. It is really all worth it:)
