We saw...

One beautiful heartbeat! The baby is measuring right on track at 6wks 4 days and had a heartbeat of 120bpm. It was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard. R was beside himself with excitement - which made me really happy to see. He kept saying "good job" to me which I thought was really funny. As if I just magically grew this baby with soil and water. Ha!

CCRM hasn't called yet with all of my hormone levels but I will update as soon as I get them. This is all starting to feel more real now. I am still very nervous, but feel very grateful that we have made it this far.

The symptoms have started to kick in. I pretty much constantly feel nauseous - although I've only thrown up twice. The first time was because of a cheeseburger and now I can't even think about looking at a cheeseburger - which really kind of breaks my heart because that's one of my favorite foods. The other time was after trying to swallow my prenatal vitamin - my gag reflex just isn't what it used to be! My face is still very broken out and I look hideous! And my boobs don't even look like they belong to me anymore! I continue to have these crampy twinges which freak me out every time, but I keep hearing it's normal so I'm trying to keep that in mind. It's all pretty uncomfortable and annoying - but it is FABULOUS! It is all well worth it and I just hope and pray that it continues as long as it needs to for this to be a successful pregnancy!
