Mel, sorry you had such a rough m/s day :(. Hopefully it will continue to get a little better every day!

Cara, thanks for the info on the test. I'm glad your insurance covers so much of it! That is a crazy amount of blood. Hope you get some great news back in a few weeks!!

Cookie, so scary about the wasp attack. I'm glad you are doing okay!!

Ashley, I love the mugs!!! I can't wait to hear how excited all the parents are about your pregnancy!! Congrats on being 10 weeks today!

My mom and sister were in town for the weekend so it was wonderful to get to spend some time with them but I was bummed I couldn't tell them about the pregnancy yet. Our first ultrasound is tomorrow so we will get to start telling people soon as long as everything is going okay. :) It's a good thing because it is getting really hard to suck in my tummy. I hadn't gained any weight up until yesterday. I stepped on the scale and I was up a pound and a half! Not sure where that came from so suddenly because I weigh myself every other day and have been weighing nearly the same thing (within .2 pounds) since I found out I was pregnant. I was feeling super bloated yesterday so it could just be that. I guess we will see tomorrow!

Briana- I'm so excited for you to have your ultrasound! I hope you can post a pic of the baby :) I can relate too about the bloating. Not fun!

So tonight we had my parents, my sister, my husband's parents, my grandparents and his grandparents over for dinner to reveal the news. Everyone was super excited!!! My mom knew we were trying, but was shocked at how far along I am. Probably because I've been lying to her this whole time. Lol! And then word got out to the whole extended family, so now everyone knows. But we're hoping it will just stay in the family for a few more weeks until we go "Facebook official". But anyway, the reveal was fun and it was cool to see the reactions :)

And as far as symptoms, I pretty much have none. I normally would worry, but after hearing the heartbeat, I feel much more reassured. I guess I just have adjusted to my hormones? Maybe I'll start feeling icky again soon. For now though, it's been nice eating normally.

Thanks Ashley! My apt. is in 45 minutes so I will update as soon as I get home! I was down .6 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight today so I guess it was just extreme bloat :) I'm so glad everyone was super excited about your announcement!!! How awesome to finally be able to share the news!! I'm glad you are feeling well.

Thanks Jen :) I'm glad it went well too. Sounds like our pregnancies are turning out pretty similar with very little symptoms and no early ultrasounds. You haven't had one yet, right?

Briana- can't wait to hear how it went!

Sounds like it ashley! No ultrasound, and since I'm still only seeing my gp at 12 weeks I'm thinking I'll only have the one at 20 weeks. I wish you lived next door so I could try the doppler though lol! The wait is killing me!

Brianna its soooo cute :) great heart rate :)

Cara thank goodness we have this thread to share our journey!

Awww, Briana, congratulations on the wonderful ultrasound! I know you are just so thrilled after seeing that today.

Ashley, that's so awesome about the reveal. I'm glad you pulled it off and everyone was excited for you. Yep, double digits is awesome. Finally...about to be out of the first trimester. Time is flying by, but at the same time, it isn't. If that makes any sense at all. :roll:

I'm with you on symptoms, since Saturday my nausea has been at a minimal. I got a little sick yesterday before church and vomited while brushing my teeth. I was good the rest of the day. This morning, I vomited just a little but I wasn't even all that nauseated. Since then, I've felt absolutely normal. My bloat is even way down the last two days. Breasts are more sore at night while I'm sleeping than during the day. I notice it when I wake up to pee or roll over and it hurts.

Three more days until my appointment - PRAYING we hear that little heartbeat!

Thanks ladies! We have another ultrasound (and blood work) scheduled on August 23rd to do first trimester screening. I'll be 11 weeks 4 days at that point. To be totally honest, the only reason I decided to do the screening was so I could see our baby an extra time before our 20 week scan :). This is done at the hospital and then I will go back to the clinic for my 12 week checkup on August 30th (I'll be 12 weeks 4 days).

Mel, I'm glad you are feeling better! I'm sure it will continue to improve as the days go by. It is so fun to be on this thread. Now we all get to wait and be excited for your appointment in 3 days!!!

Guys this is one of the coolest things I've seen, had to share right away! It shows what's happening in our bodies throughout the pregnancy... I showed hubby and he was blown away! I found it when I was trying to look up while my UPPER abdomen area feels like it's growing so much, turns out all of our intestines are moving on up to make way for the growing uterus, which by ten weeks is about as big as a grapefruit!

Mel, fingers crossed for a healthy heartbeat in three days!

Briana, glad you get another ultrasound in a few weeks, I'm sure it will be so reassuring to see the baby again!

Briana- I already mentioned it on the belly thread, but I'm so happy that everything turned out well for you at the ultrasound! That does sound like a wonderful strong heartbeat rate :)

Cara- thanks for sharing that link. That's fascinating and explains why my upper stomach seems so bloated too! Makes sense though.

Mel- I'm glad your nausea is subsiding a bit. Yay! And don't worry, you'll definitely hear your baby's perfect little heartbeat at your appt. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

AFM, I haven't had any symptoms really today other than being tired, but I definitely feel pregnant because I feel HUGE. And so bloated. I know I'll look back at this in a month or two and think I was no where near huge, but I feel like I am. lol
