First the Dr. did an ultrasound on his ancient machine. The first thing he said is "the sac is definitely bigger, but I can't find the heartbeat." ::insert minor panic attack on my end:: He tells me to go into a different ultrasound room with a more up-to-date machine & as soon as the ultrasound tech placed the wand on my tummy, there was the teeniest heartbeat ever!! Going about 115bpm. Amazing. Simply Amazing. She determined by the size of the sac, that I am only 6 wks, rather than 7. BOO!! (yes, I need to change my ticker...) Oh well, at least everything is going great!
As we were ending the appointment, the Dr. says to me "See you in 2 weeks. Hopefully you're still pregnant by then. HAHAHAHA". Seriously?? He just said that to me? I'm already a panicky pg chick as it is & he's going to say something low like that?? I was in shock.
Well, moving on, I am going to start doing the famous weekly surveys. I figured 6 wks was a good time to begin. So, here we go:
*How far along?: 6 weeks
*Total weight gain: my guess would be like 2lbs of pure bloat
*How big is baby?: the size of a sweet pea. aww!!
*Maternity clothes?: Not yet.
*Stretch Marks?: Funny story. When I was getting dressed this morning, I was putting my bra on & what do I see on my boobs??? PURPLE FREAKING STRETCH MARKS! ya. besides that, none.
*Sleep?: I am exhausted, completely exhausted by 7pm but cannot seem to fall asleep. ugh.
*Best moment this week?: seeing baby's heartbeat yesterday!!
*Movement?: In my bowels? Yes. FINALLY! (tmi, sorry)
*Food cravings: nothing out of the ordinary. Chick-fil-a mainly. oops.
*Labor Signs: Hells no!
*Belly button in or out?: innie :)
*What I miss: chardonnay.
*What I'm looking forward to: My first pre-natal appt. on Feb. 2nd
*Milestone: um, making it to 6 wks??
And here my friends, is the 6 week bloat photo:
you don't need to tell me that I look really happy...
