Pregnancy number 2 | 7-8 weeks

I don’t know if I plan on doing all updates in a blog post. I do know I will try to at least update on my youtube. So I am going to break down these weeks, based off how I feel, how the baby is doing and any plans I have going forward.

To start how I am feeling I started off being very sick feeling and drained. I am finally getting to feel less sick now that I am hitting 9 weeks on Friday.

How baby is doing. We had an appointment at 7 weeks got to see the little baby and heartbeat was good and all seems to be well.

I have an appointment next Tuesday another ultrasound and all the added fun pregnancy appointment goodness!
