We had ultrasound #3 today! I was feeling nervous and paranoid (as well as excited) before hand, but I had nothing to worry about! Our little spot is still growing perfectly! YAY! We even saw tiny arms and legs starting to sprout! I can’t believe how fast they grow. There’s a tiny human in my uterus!!! We got to see and hear the heartbeat again! It is now 146, which is perfect for 7 weeks, 2 days! Not even 2 months ago, I wondered if we were going to have to give up and move on. Now we are watching an amazing miracle grow in my belly! We are so thrilled, and we feel so lucky. I can’t stop smiling. 😀 It feels more real now for us both!
I’m feeling quite good, physically. I only had one episode of throwing up at 6 weeks, 1 day. I’ve had some nausea this week, but it’s nothing bad. I get kinda shaky/dizzy in the mornings, but I’m trying to eat more frequently to keep my blood sugar stable. I’m very picky with what I can or can’t eat. I feel like I’ve found a good amount of food that I can eat though. It just has to be spicy and extra flavorful. LOL. I haven’t gained any weight yet, but I’m not worried. I have some extra padding. I’m sure the weight will come on once I get my appetite back. I’ve noticed an increased sensitivity with smell this week, even though I’m still congested from my sinus infection from last week. I went grocery shopping yesterday, and the smells in the cleaning supply/air freshener area made me almost puke! I also walked past the wine and alcohol section, and I could smell alcohol so strong as if I were drinking it! It was grooossss. LOL. Other than that, I’m just very fatigued and have sore boobies. I love symptoms!!! Seriously, I do! I’ve waited so long to know what it feels like.
MY FIRST OB APPT is 1/24/13!!! I still have at least one more ultrasound with my RE next Friday. I will be 8 weeks, 2 days, so they might just release me that day. There would be 2 weeks in between that ultrasound and my first OB appt. My RE might do another ultrasound for me during that time, but I’m not sure yet. It feels good to know that my doctors are so pleased and confident! I’ll still be working with Dr. Kwak-Kim (long distance) on my immune issues. At this point, it’s mainly some labs and just medication refills with her.
Spot today 🙂 I don’t have access to a scanner right now, so this is from my cell phone.
My belly pic from 2 days ago at 7 weeks even (there is something growing, even if it’s just bloat – I like it)!
