I wanted to post a quick update on how things are going with the pregnancy. It has been kind of hard finding out I was pregnant so early because it seems like time is crawling by and June will never get here. For now I will settle for making it past 12 weeks when hopefully I will have a little more energy and can begin getting our home ready for our baby. For the first several weeks, I didn't have too many of the "pregnancy symptoms" everyone else seemed to have except for unbelievable tiredness. However, as I have moved into Week 8, I have had more nausea and headaches. I have never needed this much sleep in my life! Working night shift has always made for some days feeling more tired, but I am having trouble staying awake all night and having the energy to actually go to work. It gets a little better every week after the first night or two. After a few days of horrible heartburn (it was MUCH worse than the nausea), I have been allowed to take Zantac once a day and am feeling much better. I still have to be careful what I eat, and I still keep the Tums and Maalox nearby. Thank you for all the great comments that we have gotten. I will try to update on a fairly regular basis and let everyone know how things are going. Tomorrow is my 8 weeks appointment, but it will be a boring one without an Ultrasound. I will definitely post pictures when I have the next ultrasound and I will try to post some recent pictures of the family also.
