Pregnancy: 8 weeks! :)

I am 8 weeks now and still praising the Lord everyday for the blessing inside me! :) I am doing all I can to stay positive and not complain! I have always said that when I did get pregnant I would be too excited to complain. Well...here I am after dealing with 2 straight weeks of all day nausea. I have only thrown up once, but the nausea has not let up at all. I know that this is a sign of a healthy baby, so I am truly happy! Other than the nausea, I haven't had any other bad symptoms. The spotting that I had a few weeks ago has completely disappeared, which is great news! :)

We have seen our little peanut twice now...what a beautiful sight! The first ultrasound was not very exciting, as there wasn't much to see. But it was very exciting to see that there was something in there! :) This is what we saw on July 6, 2009.
Then on July 17, 2009 we got to go back and see our little peanut again. My mom was in town, so she was able to come with us. We were able to see the heartbeat flickering away on the screen! What an amazing sight!
Today I started taking a prescription anti-nausea/vomiting medicine, called Zofran. I was really nervous to take anything, as I really don't like to take medicine if I don't have to. But I was on the verge of throwing up, popped a pill in my mouth and it immediately took that feeling away. I took it 3 hours ago and still feel pretty good! I am hoping that this medicine will help me deal with the all day nausea a little better. Hopefully I will be able to eat on a more normal schedule too.
Our next appointment is August 3. We are hoping to be able to hear the heartbeat for the first time at this appointment.
Please continue to pray for our little peanut!
