Several weeks ago I posted our news on our Facebook page but I never know how many of you see what is posted because Facebook keeps changing their algorithms. So… if you haven’t heard yet, I am pregnant with baby number 7!
We found out toward the middle of April. I’m just about done with the first trimester, now. I didn’t have symptoms at first and I wasn’t sure how many weeks I was (because of breastfeeding our last baby who is 15 months). Thankfully, I was able to get a scan and was about 6 weeks. My symptoms kicked in that same week. So far my symptoms were:
- Super Hungry
- Very Nauseous
- A Strange Combo of Hungry and Nauseous
- Extreme Food Aversions (no chicken for weeks…many vegetables made me sick, as well):(
Over the past week, I’ve slowly felt the fog lift and I’ve been able to eat normally again.
We are so excited to meet this next little guy or girl! Our last child and this one will be 21 months a part – just like our oldest two! We’ve had different age gaps including a closer spacing (16 months) and a longer one (3.5 years) and I think my favorite is close to the 2-year mark. We are trying to figure out if we should find out boy or girl next month. No matter what, he or she is a tie-breaker. 🙂
I began to experience some light but consistent bleeding at 7 and 8 weeks and found out I was experiencing a subchorionic hematoma. We had another ultrasound at 12 weeks to check on this small area and to make sure everything was looking good. We found out he or she is measuring almost a week “big” but no change of due date. So excited, to get a little glimpse.
So, that is our news! Here is me at 12 weeks.
