I couldn't do it anymore, the nausea and vomiting was too much for me. The midwife said that she could put me on something called Zofran so the nausea would subside and yesterday I started taking it. I went from throwing up 4 to 5 times a day to not throwing up. I still feel nauseas, but at least the baby is getting nutrients from what I eat. Sometimes I feel like I would feel better if I could just throw up, but I know this is better for the baby. Zofran has been proven safe by pregnant women and cancer patients undergoing chemo, so I feel like I made a good decision.

Other than that, I had to cancel my appointment this week because I had to go to work early. So my next appointment is next week, hopefully I will be able to hear baby on the doppler.

I haven't really started showing yet, although I can feel where the baby is growing and my stomach is getting a little harder. It just looks like I'm getting a gut. I guess this transition period will last for a while, then I will get a full blown baby belly:) I'm in maternity pants or my bella band since last week because it's so much more comfortable. The bella band allows me to wear pants unbuttoned because of bloat. So I can wear all the pants I had pre-pregnancy while still being comfortable. I will post belly pics later on in the pregnancy, but for right now, there isn't much to see!

I am glad the Zofran has helped with the vomiting. I have a cousin on it with both her children now 4 and 1 and both are fine healthy children. I hope it continues to work for you.
