Peanut Is In The House!

Had my first appointment with the doctor today and yes, it was confirmed, Peanut is in the house. I am very relieved that this is not just a figment of my imagination, but that someone confirmed that it is really happening. Everything is fine so far and my vitals are all good. Me and hubby will quickly pop in tomorrow morning for her to draw blood so that it can be send away for tests.

We have however reached our first obstacle of life in a small town. The nearest gynecologist is 180km away and we must decide now who we want to use to get us through this next couple of months. I do however intent on completing this pregnancy as natural as possible, so have to consider the reality of going into labour and hubby have to drive us 180km - maybe in the middle of the night - to the hospital. I am also not a great fan of hospitals, but my doctor told me of a GP who does deliveries, so we will explore that option firstly. My first choice would be to use a midwife to deliver the baby at home, but also think that there might not be a lot of them in the area and do not see one driving out of the City for appointments. But I'll do some research over the next couple of days and hopefully we will work out a plan that will work for us.

So, we have entered week SIX and Peanut resembles this funny little fishy and is as big as a chocolate sprinkle.

 The first of the nausea hit me on Saturday and we ended up spending Saturday in bed watching movies. Sunday was better and we could at least go for breakfast and to the shops. This morning I started on new pregnancy supplements which left me very green. The doctor advised that I can take it before I go to bed and hopefully the effect will have worn of by morning.
