7 weeks - We saw the heartbeat today!!!!

We took a photo of the screen for a little better view of baby. Next week we can start bringing in a DVD to record the ultrasound :)

How far along: 7 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: None
How big is Baby: Baby is the size of a blueberry.
Sleep: I am sleeping well, but I am starting to wake up in the middle of the night to pee.
Movement: Not yet. I can't wait!
Food cravings: Nothing, now that I am feeling nauseous. The nausea is worse when I am hungry, so I have to force myself to eat anything I can stomach. My "favorites" right now are cereal, smoothies and bread.
Gender: We have a while before we will know. We have been discussing names though. We have two girl names picked out, but we're not 100% sure on the boy name.
Symptoms: Nausea. Headaches. Fatigue. Mood swings. Acne - it's bad :(
Best moment this week: Seeing that little heartbeat flickering on the ultrasound today was most definitely the best moment this week, if not the most amazing moment of my life. Nick and I feel so much more confident about this pregnancy now. I can't stop smiling!

We decided to start telling close friends. This weekend we are going to see my Grandma, Aunt and cousins. I am so excited to surprise them with this news!!



  1. Yay! That is such an exciting moment, and a first moment of relief! I'm so excited for you!

  2. I'm so happy to hear that you had a great ultrasound and got to hear your baby's heartbeat. It really is just the best sound in the world. :)

  3. That is so awesome!!! Awww baby b you are so loved :)

  4. Yay for a great ultrasound! That's awesome that you get to start recording them on DVD...we're not even allowed to bring cameras into ours! Oh, and sorry about the nausea. The good thing is that it's a constant reminder that you're still pregnant, right? Ha, at least that's what I keep telling myself =)

  5. Thank you so much ladies :)

    Mrs. E - that's exactly what I keep telling myself too, ha! It's all worth it ;)
