Ultrasound pics and pregnancy updates

So I'm a little late posting these, but here are pics from my ultrasound at 7weeks. My friend decided it looked like a little duck so she just had to alter it for me. :) I must say, that does really look like a duck. :)


Now I'm 10 weeks and 5 days and doing well. The nausea is letting up a bit, so I'm very thankful for that. I can already feel the baby move around inside me! It's amazing! I'm really looking forward to the 2nd trimester where I can fully enjoy being pregnant without all the nausea.

In a little over a week I'll be seeing a cardiologist for my low blood pressure. Hopefully they find out that nothing is wrong and I just have abnormally low blood pressure while pregnant. The one thing about it I do know, it isn't fun. Lately I feel like I'm going to pass out when I stand up too quickly or it's been too long since I've had a meal. Snacks do nothing, so it's making life a little tricky. I've already seen a few doctors for it, and the only suggestions so far have been to increase my sodium (yes, sounds crazy, but increase it) and drink more fluids. I'll post when I get more info from the cardiologist.
