Today I am 9 weeks pregnant, we had our second ultrasound, we got to hear little loves heartbeat, we graduated from our fertility clinic, and it’s also my nieces 22nd birthday! So many big milestones in one day!
Our little love was so incredibly adorable to see today, and while we are so sad to leave our fertility clinic and the amazing team we have had through this clinic, we are so excited to be meet our midwife and meet new pregnancy milestones!
We think we have names picked out for the baby depending on the gender, which is really exciting! And hopefully within the next month or so I’ll start documenting my body changes with photos.
I have no new symptoms, but nausea and heartburn took me out yesterday. I’ve had probably a handful of bad days with nausea since being pregnant, but I’d say yesterday was probably the worst. I felt better today though! Everyday is different! My boobs are still slightly tender, but nothing like they were in the beginning. I have felt entirely useless the last few weeks because I have just been utterly exhausted. I’m hoping the nausea and exhaustion will life by the second trimester so I can get back into working out regularly.
Eri and I are still in a bit of disbelief that this is all happening. Each time we get to see our baby or hear their heartbeat it becomes more real, but it’s just just so unbelievable and so so exciting. I am already so in love with this little bean, and I’m so eager to meet them, while also trying to savor this entire experience.
I feel so fortunate for the privilege to carry this baby. I do not take a single day for granted.
We are still only 9 weeks in, but it’s already such a beautiful journey!!
