7 weeks + our 1st ultrasound

Monday we finally got to see our itty bitty baby in an ultrasound! We found out that it was indeed just one baby that I'm carrying. Though Larry and others thought it could be twins, I knew it all along! We also got to hear and see his/her heartbeat, and I swear that was the coolest thing I've ever heard in my life. I replayed the sound over and over in my mind. I can't wait to hear it again. Larry and I both teared up listening to it! It was so neat that we could see the heartbeat fluttering in the ultrasound. That tiny little heart is working so hard to grow our baby.  I can't stop looking at this picture. I'm so in love with this baby already!

(nope, no bump yet!)

How far along? 7 weeks + 2 days

Baby is the size of a: Blueberry

Total weight gain: None.

Maternity clothes? I bought a belly band and my mom picked me up some red skinny maternity pants at the goodwill, but no need to wear them just yet!

Sleep: Sleep is still good to me. 

Best moment this week: The ultrasound of course!

Miss Anything? Not being so hormonal! Lol.

Cravings: None.

Symptoms: 6 weeks brought on my first bit of nausea. Last Monday, I went to Walmart and I was so scared I was going to throw up all over the place I was so nauseous. I got up to the register and pulled my crackers out of my purse (because I can't go anywhere without them now) and grabbed a sprite. Then I made it out to the parking lot and oh my gosh it smelled like straight up sewage! Somehow I made it to my car without vomiting. Thank God, no vomiting at all yet. I have been nauseous on and off though. Also a lot of heartburn after eating. 

Looking forward to: Seeing our sweet baby and hearing the heartbeat again. Too bad our next appointment isn't for 5 more weeks!

I can't wait to follow your pregnancy and mommy journey!!! PS I also loved the heartbeat so much I recorded it on my phone during the apt so I could play it over and over!!
