Praise the Lord, I am starting to feel a little better!!!! YEAH! :) It's been a tough 6 weeks or so, but I am hopeful that I am on the upswing. I have felt a little better for the past 4 days and haven't thrown up in 4 days either! What a blessing! :) I am now down about 10 pounds since first finding out I was pregnant, but that's nothing to be worried about. I know that I will catch back up in no time. Despite having lost 10 pounds, I still have a small baby bump. It's amazing how much my belly has grown, even in the past few days. I feel like I woke up one morning and had a bump! So fun!!! The other strange "side effect" I am dealing with is peeling skin on my stomach. On the sides of my baby bump my skin is peeling/flaking (gross, I know!) Lotion seems to help, but I have keep applying it. I'm sure it is related to my growing belly and the stretching skin.
We had a doctor's appointment a few weeks ago and got to see our lil' peanut again! This time the ultrasound was done on the outside of my belly (instead of internally) so the picture was quite as clear, but he/she is definitely growing! I can't wait to see her/him again! Our next appointment is August 31. We will get to finally hear the heartbeat at that appointment! YEAH!
Thank you so much for your continued prayers! Keep them coming!
