7w3d

WOW!!! I am in amazement at everything that has happened the last two weeks. I apologize for not updating but we have been super busy and I am so tired by the time I come home from work and I get queasy starting about 3:00 in the afternoon. I haven't been sick yet though!!! WOO-HOO!!!!

Our first ultrasound was at 6w1d on March 12th!! we saw and heard the heartbeat. Dr. I said everything looked completely normal!! I was so excited to hear that. I have NEVER been normal!!! Hearing the heartbeat was surreal!!!

I had another ultrasound this past Thursday on the 19th at 7w1d and the baby had grown and the sac had grown and we could discern the body of the baby. The heartbeat was stronger and the CRL was 9 which measured 6w6d. So everything once again looked exactly where it should. Dr. I said I was starting to look boring!!! Music to my ears!!

I will have my first OB appointment this Friday in Vicksburg and will get to have another ultrasound. I am loving getting weekly ultrasounds!!!

Here are the pictures that I have scanned in. I didn't get them all scanned in because Mom came to both of my ultrasounds and I let her take a picture home from each to show off and Burt has one from each week on his desk at work.

I can't believe that there is a little person inside of me with a heart that is beating away!!!

6w1d - March 12th


7w1d - March 19th

Beth I am so happy for you and your husband. I was worried when you didn't post for 2 weeks. I'm thrilled that your dreams are finally coming true -- you'll be a terrific mother!

And I recently got a BFP as well -- I'm a couple weeks behind you, but hopefully we'll both have happy, healthy babies in November!

Congrats again!

Congratulations!!!! I've been very behind on my blog reading, and I'm glad I was able to stop by today and see your great news. Boring is so good, isn't it??? Take care of yourself and get lots of rest. You can catch us up when you get to your 2nd trimester and the tiredness starts to go away.

I am so happy for you!!!!!
