6 weeks!!


Definitely just one! And I am happy about that. And our one is doing VERY well. At only 5w6d we got to see a beautiful flickering heartbeat, going strong at 110 beats per minute. I cried. I couldn't help it. It's real! It's really real! I knew it was (it being this pregnancy), but this just made everything so so real. I was in shock when we saw it - it's so early (it this time being the heartbeat), but this baby is just certainly an over-achiever!! With the early pregnancy test, the high beta numbers, everyone thought it was twins - nope! Just one strong beautiful over-achieving cooperative little baby!!

I have never been so happy. I cry whenever I think of the heartbeat. I could have laid there on that uncomfortable table with that also not so comfortable wand inside me for hours just watching that fast little flicker. It was beautiful. But alas, it had to end. But yay - in 2 weeks my mom and I will go back and the baby will look like a real baby!! I CAN'T WAIT! And that will be my last RE appt! I can't believe it. I had heard of girls "graduating" from their RE but never imagined doing so myself! I feel so so so lucky and blessed.


How far along? 6 weeks. <3
Total weight gain/loss: None, really. Hovering between 114 and 119, usually 116-117.

Maternity clothes? I still wear only PJs and I'm lovin it!
Stretch marks? Not yet (dot dot dot!!)...
Sleep: Still needing a Tylenol PM to sleep at night. Doc said that's fine, but I'm the only preggo he's ever met that isn't tired lol! And still getting up at *least* 3 times a night to pee.

Best moment this week: Seeing that BEAUTIFUL flickering heartbeat!
Have you told family and friends: Everyone knows! It's even Facebook official!
Miss Anything? Working, I guess. But I'm sure I will be soon and I will miss being home!
Movement: Nope.
Food cravings: Still green beans lol, but I haven't had them :(

Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything! I have to hold my breath in the kitchen. And the thought of eggs or little breakfast potatoes - both used to be a favorite! Now - BLECH!
Have you started to show yet: More than a heavier person would, yes. But most of it is just bloat since baby is only the size of a pea.
Gender prediction: I'm still guessing boy. Uncle Alex, Grandpa Bill and Daddy are all guessing girl. Grandma needs more time to think, lol.
Labor Signs: Nope.Belly Button in or out? Same.
Wedding rings on or off? Engagement ring on, mostly.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound in 2 weeks! (Well, 13 days now!)
