Our Little Chickpea
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.
