Our Little Chickpea

June 21, 2011

Our little chickpea at 6 weeks

I can’t believe it.  I can’t believe how lucky we are.  We are having one little chickpea.  One!!! I was so frightened we were going to find out it was quads or even quints, and we’d have to make the incredibly difficult decision about a reduction.  No more, my friends.  We have one little bundle in there and he or she is fighting the fight all by his or herself.

Today was my six week ultrasound.  I am also sick as a dog.  Go figure.  I assumed that with how incredibly nauseated I have been the past few days it must be multiples; but no, apparently I’m just “sensitive” as Dr. T says.  He warned me it may get progressively worse until about 10 weeks.  But thankfully he then wrote me a prescription for Zofran.  And recommended some B vitamins.

Tomorrow we are flying out of the country, so I am incredibly grateful to have some anti-nausea meds to take with me on our vacation.  I am even more incredibly grateful to know that our one little chickpea is nestled safely in my uterus, and that we got to see his/her little heartbeat going super strong.  And hear it, too, which brought tears to my eyes.

Life is beautiful.
