Dreams

I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt that i was a doctor and that i did a ultrasound on a guy, i don't know why i did it, but then i put the wand on my belly and i saw THREE babies!!!
And about a week ago i dreamt i was having a boy. Does anyone know what these dreams mean?

Doctors Appointment

I went to the doctor on friday, (M went with me) and told him that i'm pregnant. He did a examination on me and ordered some blood test to see how far along i am and to see what my blood type is. The nurse hurt me when she drew the blood, she first put the needle in my right arm and could not find a vein she was poking around in there, then she switched to the other arm and eventually drew the blood. I asked the doctor to do a ultrasound and he told me that it is still to early and that we wouldn't be able to see much, he told me to come back in 4 weeks time then we can do a ultrasound. He took everything so calm doesn't he understand that i want to know if my little bean is alright in there!!!!!

Anyways I got the test results back the next day and i am 7 weeks pregnant, and everything looks fine. He put me on folic acid and iron pills.

I've had some episodes of morning sickness, or should i call it all day sickness, which i didn't have when i was pregnant the first time, so maby it is a good sign that this baby will stick around the whole nine months this time around and not just for two.

It has stopped

Well the spotting has stopped.
It wasn't alot and only when i wiped, it was a very light brown colour ( i know it's a little too much information, but hey, it's my blog if you dont like it don't read it.) I didn't tell M about the spotting, i don't want him to worry, Last night while i was lying in bed doing crossword puzzels he put his hand on my tummy and asked me if our little one was growing nicely. I was so shocked i didn't know what to say to him, I told him that we will see on saterday. With the first pregnancy he never touched my belly and with this one he does it almost daily.
