Week 7- I'm having a Blueberry!

I think I just had my first craving? 
-Carrots, yes I woke up starving at 3am and beelined it to the fridge and have been nibbling on some baby carrots for the past 30mins..

♥ That's definitely one thing I've noticed this week that's changed.. I now constantly feeling like I'm starving myself and baby.

♥ The nauseous feeling has died down for the most part.. Thank god. I tried to go grocery shopping and the thought of food or smell and sight made me feel so sick!

♥ I've neglected this lil blog world lately. I've been a little uninspired to get on the computer at all even. I've just been so busy reading baby books and laying around, being lazy.

♥ One of my favorites this week has been this book.. This one is hilarious and just like it states, she tells it like it is and some of the stuff in here is probably not really advice or details I would hear from anyone I know.

I also ended up telling the cousins! :) So thanks to everyone that gave me advice! They are all pretty excited and happy for us! Now I just need to impatiently wait to tell the whole world!
I will soon take to Pinterest to find creative, fun ways to announce it

Also if you saw on twitter, we had a little bit of a scare this past week. Everything is great now thank goodness, but it was definitely scary!

So, you know hubs has been taking shots, right? Well before the infertility specialist wanted him to stop she wanted me to go get some blood work done to check out my hormone levels.

Quick little side note- I went in the previous Friday and did this.. no problem. Heard back from the dr. she wanted me to go do it again the following Monday.. 

So perfect timing, I had already taken the day off.. Well.. the day didn't go as planned. The blood drawers (I dunno what they're called?) can never find my veins.. So this one woman tried in both of my arms a couple times.. ya ouch! No success, so she calls over some help and this chick is trying to find my vein, twisting and moving the needle around IN MY ARM.. no success.. this though is when I tell her.. "umm I think I'm going to faint".. and next thing I know I feel like I'm in a dream and everyone is saying my name.. I fainted! and when I came to, there was like 10 ppl around me, I sit up and throw up everywhere.. luckily they must have known this would happen cuz there was a barf bag out as soon I looked like I was gonna lose it.. Some guy from the ER came over and was trying to get me to go with him and just hang out in  the ER, but I declined. They didn't want me to move either, so for about 30mins I just laid back in the chair freezing, covered with a blanket as everyone went back to drawing blood.. It was so embarrassing.. And since I drove my self, they wheel chaired me out to my car [this is when I put on my 'make me invisible' sunglasses, so no one could see me as I made my way through the hospital]..

So back to baby scare #1 ('cuz I'm sure there will be more right?)
Test results came back.. Hormone levels look really low.. My dr was concerned and suggested I make an appt to get in asap for an ultra sound. P.s. after you get news like this, there is absolutely no way you can continue on with your work day. I was a nervous wreck and was searching the internet.. Many stories with the same 2 hormone that were low ended with the no heart beat at the ultra sound or women later having a miscarriage. 

Long story short- cuz this now has turned into a very long story.. 
I went in the next morning.. Hubbs met me there, and I was crying as we're walking in.. He's trying to be supportive but I think we was scared too.

The Nurse practitioner came in.. I had my first ultra sound and bam!
We heard the lil "kidney bean's" heart, as Bob asked the nurse "So is this what you call the kidney bean stage?" - it was cute, I thought.. 

Tears just started streamin down my face and Bob rubbed my head and at that moment I knew we both were so relieved. They measured it to be exactly how far along I thought I was.. EDD: 6-21-2013

The Nurse said everything looks great and I just have to take this lil pill 2x a day- not such a pretty way- until I'm 12 weeks and hopefully levels will start goin up!

♥ Here's our lil guy.. (as everyone seems to think we're having a boy).. I tell em to stop looking at my belly, cuz  that's just my new fat layer I'm getting that they're staring at!
