12 wk appt

we had our 12 wk yesterday and got to hear the heart beat, it was pretty cool. It was around 160, which is perfect. I was terrified to go to this appt. I just can't get past the idea that I am pregnant, and the fear of something happening. I was almost making myself sick thinking about it, which I know has not been healthy. I can honestly say I feel better now that we heard a hb and that I am 12 wks this week. I am still feeling a crappy, headaches have been terrible. I have never gotten them this bad before. I feel that I can finally take a sigh of relief and get excited about being pregnant. We have started telling people now, it's kind of weird actually saying it out loud. It still doesn't feel real.

On a personal note we are officially on vacation and it is wonderful. I spent Saturday cleaning my house-I had a burst of energy to clean. I also baked some apple pies, my house smelled wonderful. Sunday and Monday we went to Chicago to visit some friends. We are now back home and heading to my in laws tomorrow. It is just a nice relaxing week. Today we are going to pick apples at a orchard and get some pumpkins. The temperature has finally dropped into the 50-60's here and it is finally starting to feel like fall. In the last few days the leaves have finally started to turn colors. I love it, although I am not looking forward to winter.

Congrats on your 12 week mark!! I konw how I felt when I hit that week. I had really bad headaches also, so I understand. I wish it was 50's 60's here and I can't wait to winter!! I want to be cold and have coats and sweaters! :)

Congrats on making 12 weeks! Almost on the the second trimester! Glad to hear everything is going well. Here I am in my 25th week and I still can't believe I am pregnant some days. I think the worrying and fear never totally goes away. Mmmmm...apple pie...

Wow you are completely echoing my thoughts...I panic to the point of making myself ill so much, and I know it's so counter-productive...do share whatever calming techniques you may have picked up along the way. :)
Congrats on 12 weeks...that's awesome!!
