Welcome to my weekly pregnancy record. I didn’t write anything until I was seven weeks along because, well, there really wasn’t much happening up until that point. I found out that I was pregnant pretty early on (3 1/2 weeks). I pretty much knew, I was just waiting for that little plastic stick to tell me so, so I was kind of HPT happy for a few days.
I hope to post a few of these every week and eventually get caught up so I’m in “real-time” with my pregnancy updates.
7 Weeks (October 28, 2010)
I got an extra special treat on my birthday today. This morning I had my first ultrasound! I’m currently 7 weeks pregnant and the purpose of this ultrasound was to date the pregnancy. Although our little one resembles more of a tadpole at this stage than a baby, it was still so exciting to see the tiny round blob on the screen. The best part was seeing the heartbeat! All is normal, with baby’s heart beating at a steady 128 BPM. I told the tech that it finally seemed real. She asked if I had been experiencing any morning sickness and I said, “thankfully, no.” I’ve had a few bouts of mild nausea when the thought of eating crosses my mind, but nothing serious. It’s like my body is saying NO WAY when I think of eating some foods and others, it’s like YES! I can’t really figure out any rhyme or reason yet, so we’ll see if I develop any aversions or cravings with this pregnancy. With S, I was all about FRUIT and wouldn’t touch YOGURT. So strange what pregnancy does to you! It was so nice to see you today little baby! 🙂
