8 weeks and counting

I'm so sorry I've been MIA on this blog. Between being extremely sick, tired, and the incident last week, I haven't had the energy to do too much.  I am officially 8 weeks. I'm still very nauseous and can't seem to get enough sleep, but I'm hoping some of that will go away within the next month.

Here's our little chickpea at 8 weeks
I think I'm finally feeling better about last week's scare. I've never been so scared before. It was an awful experience that I wouldn't wish upon anyone.  We had to wait hours to see if I had lost the baby or not.  I truly thought I had. I had never seen so much blood in my life. I was terrified.  It turns out that they think I had a hemorrhage. Apparently, it's not that uncommon.  I have never heard of this happening, but after the doctor's did my beta test and the ultrasound, they were pretty sure that's what happened. Anyway, I'm trying to move on from that, but I'm still a little nervous and scared that something might happen again. 

I have my first OB appointments next week, so I'll finally be away from all the hospital doctors. I don't think I've seen the same doctor or nurse twice.  I'm not sure if I'll have another ultrasound or not. I've already had 3! I will try not to be too absent from here anymore either. After all, it was my idea to record my journey, right?
