6 weeks, a scare, and oh yes! Nausea

My 6 week ultrasound was scheduled for today but on Monday I had a scare and had my ultrasound Monday instead. Which was exactly my 6 week mark.

I was at work and I begin bleeding/spotting. Just writing this about makes my heart stop. I completely freaked out!! I called Shaun, Who was having a nice lunch at subway until I called and told him I was spotting. He told me to go right to the doctor's office and he would meet me there.

I walked into my supervisor's office at work and said, "I have an emergency and I have to go." I was shaking the whole way to the doctor's office. praying the whole way. They took me back for a look. They could not find blood coming from anywhere. My cervix was closed the way it should and they could not see any blood spots on the ultrasound and the baby was fine!!.........I could now breath again. The baby, and mostly fluid, had more than doubled in size. I just love seeing this week by week growth. It is so cool!! really fascinating. I'll try and get the pictures up sometime, but I have to go to my sister-in-laws, Kelley, She has a scanner and she's always such a help to me.

The doctor's office said I may bleed again and to give them a call. Some women may bleed a little though out pregnancy and they may never find out where it is coming from. I just hope that does not happen to me. I don't know if my heart can handle it. I just have to stay calm and realize this can be normal. I've had no problems sense then.........except.........Nausea! Welcome to pregnancy.
The last two days my nausea has really kicked it up to high gear. I'm trying to figure out what will work for me. Shaun is running to the store now to get me some ginger ale and a whole list of things I might like, but this can change by tomorrow. The good thing is I seem to really want mostly good things like, Peaches, raspberries, watermelon. Yummy!!
I'm at my worst in the morning to about 3:00pm. Right in the middle of work, How pleasant.
I just keep reminding myself that it means I'm pregnant!! So I'll take all this extreme tiredness/fatigue, Nausea, and moodiness.
Shaun has been an amazing help. He's pretty much running the house. I seem to be stuck on the couch, exhausted!! It's good to have a great partner.
I need to go get ready for bed, because I need all the sleep I can get!

amelia bedelia - our wise and experieced :) mother-in-law recommended ginger snap cookies to me & they acutally helped A LOT - she recommended celery too, I'm not a huge fan so I didn't try that.

Keep on keeping on while i'm gone - miss you,
