First Milestone Reached

I'm 7 weeks pregnant today.

We lost our SweetPea at 7 weeks, so this is kind of a big deal for me. I wanted to feel happy to reach this day, but last night I had some very light spotting. At least, I think it was spotting. It wasn't really brown, more tan-ish? I don't know for sure what it was, which means that I don't know if I should be worried or not. I guess I'll just have to keep an eye on it and pray it doesn't turn into anything bad.

I'm hoping the increasing nausea is a sign that all is ok. I had to lay back down this morning after popping out of bed, oh the wave that hit me! I'm also needing to go to bed earlier and earlier. I used to stay up till all wee hours of the morning, my usual bedtime being 11:30 or 12:00, depending on what was on TV. Last night, I went to bed at 10:45. I just couldn't hack it. DH stayed up longer so it gave me a chance to fall asleep before he came in and started snoring in my ear! Even with the extra sleep, I am still exhausted and the circles under my eyes are becoming harder to hide. People are starting to ask me if I'm feeling alright.

Here are the 7 week belly pics. The bloat has gone down a little : )

I had brown spotting around 6 weeks which of course scared the crap out of me. The doc said it is normal and as long as it is not accompanied by severe cramping or last more than 24 hours then not to worry. Congrats on your first big milestone hun, hugs.

Yay, lofv! Happy to hear you are a healthy 7 weeks pregnant! I read that people who have morning sickness have a much, much lower chance of miscarrying. So woohoo for morning sickness!
