Today was our very first ultrasound. I went in and was extremely nervous. Last time I had gotten to this point, I was super excited only to find that there was no baby and eventually figured out we had an ectopic pregnancy. BUT NOT THIS TIME!!!
Doc said that things are looking great! Today is 6 weeks, 2 days and baby is measuring 6 weeks, 1 day. Our little bean is just .4 cm! We heard the heartbeat, and it was the most amazing feeling!
THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING! Here are the details….
How far along? 6 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: 2 lbs (basically from completely cutting out exercise)
Maternity clothes? Nope, but def bought a new bra….that’s right I’m now a B!!!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleeping great
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat!!
Have you told family and friends: Yep, since everyone knew we were doing IVF, it was cruel to keep the good news to ourselves.
Miss Anything? Wine.
Food cravings: Sweets!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I thought it was citrus….but turns out it’s just EVERYTHING!
Have you started to show yet: feeling pretty chubby, had to unbutton my pants a few times this week!
Gender prediction: Girl!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. I go from happy as a clam, to a crazy B.
Looking forward to: Our next appointment, at 8 weeks.
PS. My doc is 5 for 5 this last round of IVF. I would HIGHLY recommend him!!
