It seems I am making my way near the end of the first trimester already. Main symptom is exhausting and no morning sickness thank goodness. I do get queasy/dizzy when I'm hungry but it's not too bad and I'm really lucky. I am loving my dopppler and being able to check the heartbeat every couple days is so nice. Pregnancy tends to pass slowly, but is going much quicker as I am enjoying watching Kyleigh grow and reach milestones. Right now she's pulling up and cruising around furniture. You can tell there's times she thinks about letting go, but not quite yet. I can't believe I will have a toddler very soon. Last month, all her teeth decided to come out at once, poor baby. She now has 6 teeth out and they all seemed to pop out within a week.
Mom is taking Nick and John this weekend, and since Kyleigh ususlly goes down for a morning nap after breakfast, it looks like I will be able to sleep in tomorrow for the first time in years!
I will try to update again soon.

In other words, played with my doppler yesterday at 10w3d and heard my own pulse but in the background I hard a fast "thump, thump, thump" reading in the 160s on the monitor, so it looks like we have a baby's heartbeat!
This pregnancy has made me so much more tired than the last, so I'm trying to deal with that while chasing 3 kids. I'm managing, but I just don't have the energy to do much, and diaper change/wrestling matches with Nick are leaving me walking away breathless. I do praise God I have been again blessed with the absence of morning sickness, other than occasional queasiness, kinda like the feeling you get when you are really hungry.
I guess now I'll leave you with a picture of my beautiful daughter. You can see her cute little teath coming out too.

Anyway, since I was baffled finding readings on both sides of my belly, and I highly doubt it's twins, I looked up pulse points and here is the diagram I found. Now I'm confused as to whether or not I found the baby, or my pulse on the femoral artery. Not getting an early u/s this pregnancy is making me crazy. I just what to be able to say for sure there's a heartbeat. I know, I know, it's too early likely.

First Prenatal Visit
My first doctor appointment was yesterday. I'm 8 weeks today. He didn't do an ultrasound, so didn't get to hear the heartbeat, so I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping to leave feeling relieved, hearing a beating heart, but I'm just gonna have to have faith the my baby is healthy and growing normally.
I have been playing around with my doppler a couple times a week. I know it's early, but I don't wanna miss the chance when I finally hear the heartbeat. I did pick up a reading of 135 for a few seconds before it slowed down and found my own pulse, so it may/may not have been the baby.
I thought I'd worry less this time, but it's pretty much the same as with Kyleigh. I'm still shocked(in a good way of course) that I was able to get pregnant, not once, but twice and it's still hard to believe it's really happening.
Anyway, at least I have 3 little ones to chase to keep me distracted as I wait. I will try to update here as much as possible. Oh, and I spilled the beans on f@cebook a couple weeks ago because Larry couldn't wait any longer.
