The ultrasound!

So I'm lazily blogging to you from the comfort of my bed via my trusty iPhone. Yea, my computer is only a few short steps away, but that's neither here nor there. :-)
Truth is, I just haven't been feeling all that great this weekend. The zofran has been helping me ALOT, but I still have my bouts of nausea and vomitting and the medicine also comes with it's own side effects that sometimes make you question if you'd rather just be sick! I won't get into the TMI of the particular side effect that's affecting me, but it's no fun. Oh well, hopefully this sickness will all be over very soon!
Alright, enough of my whining. :-) On to the fun stuff! On Friday we had our 1st ultrasound! Finally!! It seemed like we had to wait FOREVER! It was so great, I think we might get the award for biggest entourage at a 7 week ultrasound, lol. It was me (of course), M&M, IM's BFF, my mom, and my stepdad. I called to "pre warn" the clinic about our group, but the Dr still looked a little surprised when he came in he room.
Anyway, the Dr started the u/s and found 1 gestational sac w/ 1 baby! (contrary to what most people thought would be twins :-) Then we all got to see and hear the heartbeat! It was so amazing! There were so many emotions, and it was such a happy time; the looks on my IP's faces, that's why I do this. That's why I put body through all the meds, the poking and prodding, the sickness; because I know it's all for the greater good. And if it was that emotional at the ultrasound, then I can only imagine what it will be like on the day I get to give my IP's what they've been waiting so long for, their precious baby. I can't wait!
After the u/s, my IP's and I went to lunch and then my IM and I got pedicures! It was great! I love that we're able to be so close and comfortable with each other, I wouldn't want it any other way. Oh, and I got a yummy goodie basket from my IP's with all the random stuff I've been craving lately!! The best basket ever! :-)
So, anywho, Friday was a great day! And hopefully there will be many more to come!
Good night all! I'll leave u with a pic of the sweet little blueberry.

I know EXACTLY what you are talking about with the Zofran. After spending countless hours in the bathroom, which resulted in NOTHING, I decided that throwing up was a much better feeling most days =) But, thankfully, my doctor prescribed me with another medication to help with the bad side effects of the Zofran, so after awhile, I finally got relief from it all. I hope you feel better... those days were no fun at all =(

Hang in there!

Congrats on the good ultrasound! I need to do some homework as I am so naive about all the side affects. But I'm very sorry you're feeling bad and hope you feel better real soon! Thinking good thoughts for you-
