6 weeks

So today I am 6wks if you go by my Dr.'s measurements from Friday. Going by the last day of AF I would be 6wks 5 days. Anyhoo 6wks today and I REALLY hope and pray our lil pea is growing strong and a heartbeat is starting any minute if not already. Our last PG we saw the heartbeat at 6wks 1day. And our baby's heart stopped beating around 6wks 2-3days from the measurements they took the day I started spotting. I was supposed to be just over 7 wks at that point.
Friday we should be measuring 6wks 2days. Even though we still won't quite be past how far we got last time, it will of course be a major relief to see a nice strong heartbeat. And how ironic that Saturday the 12th was our other baby's due date. I can only hope I will be able to smile that day with good news so far with this PG.
No sore boobies still but I do have some horrible indigestion. Had a little of the vomit reflux a dozen time's now. Pretty much anything that is not totally bland causes indigestion. I also find that having smaller more frequent meals helps. Also still having some constipation along with gassyness. Sorry for the TMI ladies. If there is a such thing as TMI anymore.
So this morning I realized I haven't had any cramps the past few days so of course I start to worry. Actually wanting to feel those cramps I had last week that freaked me out until I saw the ultrasound and realized they must just be good cramps. Well low and behold my lovely lil crampy feelings started this evening. And what did I do? Yell with joy?!? No I freaked. I can't win with myself!!! Seriously I hope I can just be more normal with this PG soon. Even though I know, as many of you other women who have suffered through miscarriages, that this might not happen. And that's just fine as long as our baby is at the end of all this!
On a different subject Hubby called me today (he is on shift) to tell me he had a present for me. He is terrible at keeping secrets. He bought me a GPS! Apparently he bought it online this weekend as they were having a 50% off sale just for Labor day weekend. I can't believe he actually didn't tell me before today! ;-)
We looked at getting me one last year and then decided against it since they are kind of expensive for a good one. He told me since they were having the sale he wanted to get it. He said this way I won't get lost and can check traffic on my way to work. Also it has blue tooth so I can talk on my cell phone without using my hands. Which he said is important if I am going to be driving around with his baby! He is so funny sometimes.
Thank you all again for your support & please continue to pray for our lil Pea. Hoping for a strong heartbeat Friday!
