Update on us...
And so it starts.
The nausea? morning sickness? nope , well yes a little nausea but I am talking about the fears. We went to the doctor last week, had a sonogram and there it was... a beautiful egg sack, yolk and all and even a filckering heart beat. Sigh.....so far so good.
We are trying to not get overjoyed until the next appointment which is when we actually hear the heartbeat. Sigh.
Baby steps right?
My husband is very guarded and fearing another autism child. I can't really blame him except I tell him we know the signs and what to do for extra early intervention if need be. Besides, who can forget my son's metals level from his urine toxic metals test. Won't it be better already if I prevent the metals to enter his/her body this time around as much as I can? After all, we have been at this for quite a while now. I know though that fears or not, it will take one look into the baby's eyes for him to melt again like he did with our first!
Only time will tell. For now, I leave the fear in the hands of my husband and although I too am scared I will try to focus on all the positive stuff that comes with being pregnant.
By belly is starting to pop out. Already 35 1/1 inches! up from 34" last week. 8 weeks tomorrow. 4 more weeks and I will be able to breathe slower and calmer.
On to research organic everything: mattresses, pjs, clothing and then glass bottles, natural toys, etc...this is going to be interesting. What about formula? organic formula? what is the alternate option to milk other than cow's milk and my own?
I think this is going to be great for my son! I am mostly excited to see and experience their interaction. Everytime he sees a baby awake he says "baby sleep" , won't work but it will be cute to see him try!
