Quick Update :)

So Friday we went for another quick US, so C could see the baby's heartbeat etc. All went well it was nice to get to see and hear the heartbeat again :). We go back again on Thursday for our next US and bloodwork. I am getting closer and closer to getting to be off the estrogen and progesterone. I think my butt will take forever to heal from these shots lol it is still numb. 

Also, we picked out OB/GYN! Our first appointment in May 3rd! I can't believe it!

On a side note I am a little worried because last night I was driving home from a Phillies game and someone hit the back of my car at a red light. No major damage just a few scratches but I did get jolted a bit. I just hope everything with the baby is okay. I'll be anxious until Thursday I suppose.

Here are the pictures from Friday:

Here is our baby's heartbeat being measured on Friday. It was 119 beats per minute :)!

Kind of hard to see but the big black oval is my gestational sac, the little greyish circle in the middle is the yolk sac, and the white blob (to the right in the gest sac) with a big head is our baby  :)

How far along? 7 weeks 2 days 
How big is baby? Raspberry
Total weight gain/loss: None
Maternity Clothes: Not wearing them yet but bought a few more things on Friday with C :).
Have you started to show yet? Not yet, just bloated belly
Sleep: I could sleep ALL day!
Best moment this week: Seeing my baby's heartbeat twice in one week!
Miss Anything? Lunch meat sandwiches!
Movement: None
Food Cravings: NOTHING... food aversions stink
Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing specific just a sense of nausea mostly in the morning or when my belly is empty
Gender prediction:  Boy
Symptoms: Tired, bloated, occasional nausea, and sore boobs. Honestly I am happy because they're subtle. 
Major purchases this week? Maternity clothes.... ouch they're pricey!
Looking forward to: Next US Thursday :)


  1. I'm putting in a guess! I say it's a boy! Oh, I'm so excited for you guys. I do so love the spring time BFPs around the blogging community lately! :)

  2. That's awesome, that C was able to hear the heartbeat for the first time! So exciting! Love your weekly stats updates!

  3. Super exciting! These scans are the best part of being pregnant...just awesome! And hoping the little fender bender doesn't put a fender bender in anything. Positive thoughts...look forward to following along. Thanks for sharing...

  4. So so happy we are travelling this journey at similar times! Yay! Looks like everything is going well.
