7 Weeks

How far along.... 6w6d. My ultrasound was moved up a day, so technically I'm 7 weeks tomorrow.

How am I feeling.... Starving, must-eat-now, hungry one minute to "I'm going to puke" the next, ha! I never know what I can eat until moments before. My bagel with cream cheese really helped the nausea this morning. I'm getting very tired in the evenings. And my newest symptom, that freaked me out and made me think I was losing the baby, is a lot of stomach/small intestine pressure. I would just say "gas" but it's not always there to relieve it. It's really hurting me and it doesn't seem to matter what I eat. I'm not constipated, but since the constipation supplements are on my approved meds list, I may try one to see if it helps.

How is baby doing.... We were able to see and hear her heartbeat today!!!!! Best moment so far and really put us at ease. She measured right at 7 weeks, or 10 mm. It's so crazy that we start off so teeny tiny.

Milestones.... Seeing the heartbeat!


  1. Yay! So happy with the continued good news!

  2. just stumbled across your blog, excited to follow along your journey!

  3. I love it! She is growing beautifully & strong. Oh man the cramping...that was not fun :( I felt like I cramped 90% of the time. I remember having such a hard time just staying at peace and not worrying. But then I would remember that worrying wouldn't make my baby stronger or take my cramps away.

    Always thinking and praying for you. Peace and hope sent to you, friend.

  4. I've been gone from blogland for too long - so happy to come back and see these posts from you! Congratulations!
