Quick update today!

We HEARD the heartbeat today! Unbelievable!!!! It was amazing and quite a surprise. I had no idea you could hear it this early. But, there it was, beating away at 131 bpm!!!!! It was wonderful! We even got a picture of the sound waves of the beating heart. I’ll post pics later as I’m running out the door. I had a very rough night last night with the m/s (scratch that – all day sickness). I’m trying to figure out what works at keeping it at bay. I’ve gotten lots of suggestions and will try some of those! I’m trying to eat every two hours (small meals) to see if that helps. I don’t feel awesome, but it’s better.Ā  Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure šŸ™‚

This first one is our baby at 7 weeks:


This next one is the graphical representation of when we heard the h/b!!! See those sound waves?! That’s what 131 bpm sounds like!


And this is my 7 week belly shot. I’ve got a bit of a pooch going. Mostly bloat and fertility drugs! I’m proud of it nonetheless! šŸ™‚ 7 weeks b


  1. I’m so happy you had another WONDERFUL appointment! How awesome to hear the heartbeat! Your little bean is getting bigger! I’m so sorry you’re feeling so sick!!! I hope it gets better soon! I am very jealous of your little pooch and not because you have a pooch but because I would kill to be that skinny WITH fertility drugs and bloat! You look GREAT!!!

    LOVE & PRAYERS!!!!

  3. My sis-in-law used the bracelet that people sometimes use for motion sickness – should be able to get at the pharmacy – it puts pressure on certain points. She had some luck with it – probably worth a try!
