Samarella's Journal

8 week Dr apt

  • Samantha-  

    So glad today's appointment went well.  Ya know the body is an amazing thing... while it might let you loose weight, it's going to do that while it gives all the extra good stuff to the baby.

    I'm so excited that you're feeling a lil' excited!  I can not tell you in hindsight how much I regret keeping excitement at bay for so much of Micah's pregnancy.  I really wish I had embraced it earlier as I have with this lil' one.

    Thinkin' pink for ya! ;)


  • Girl! I'm excited right along with you! I lost weight with Kaitlyn.  Your body will give the baby what it needs before even your own needs.  It's an amazing thing.  I hope your nausea goes away soon though.  Oh- and FYI, Kaitlyn's heartbeat never went below 158 ;) But you're right, it's not proven

    So excited you're getting excited.

    Love and hugs,


  • I'll echo the doctor, don't stress so much about not being able to eat much right now, fluids are the most important!  I think I heard as long as you can keep liquids down then baby can live off of your stores!  Maybe try lemonade?  Sour stuff is supposed to help nausea, so lemonade would do double duty for hydrating and helping with the nausea!

    Yay for excitement!  Hugs!


  • So glad to see that the heartrate is so high. I'm excited for you! HUGS


  • I'm so glad that things are going well for you and baby!  That heartbeat is the most glorious sound of all...other than that first cry of your baby :)  I hope your nausea goes away soon...just try to keep as hydrated as possible.  

    Sending lots of positive vibes your way - and good for you for getting excited.  Embrace that feeling as much as you can.



  • Samantha welcome i had my baby at 29 weeks due to an infection she was 3 lbs 5 oz  my pregnancy was good up until that moment. Sophia spent 37 days in the Nicu was a scary experience for my next baby I will have to have the shots and circlage put in and deliver by  c-section again. I know friends that have had them and they said hey are not that bad I hate needles but  babies are worth it  :)
