I decided to wait to update until after my OB appt today. I can’t believe it, but he actually found the hb with the doppler! Beating away around 160 bpm! 🙂 But that did mean that we didn’t get an ultrasound, but that’s okay. I thought I would be more bummed, but honestly, I feel like it’s a really good thing that he found the hb with the doppler. I tried it with the at home one I have last night, and only found my hb, but he said his picks up 3-4 weeks earlier than at-home dopplers. But now that he found it and I know where he was looking, I will try more at home. Last night was the first time I tried. But I know that I probably won’t be able to until maybe 12 weeks. They outsource the NT Scan, so I have to call a MFM specialist tomorrow (Maternal Fetal Medicine) to set that appt up–3 weeks from now! And Dr. Dick had me set up our next appt at the office and that will be at 13w and the official start of 2nd Trimester according to Dr. Dick 🙂 Woohoo! I really hope this next few week fly by!
Symptoms?: Same as the last couple weeks. My nausea still sucks donkey balls and I really miss eating. I can only eat a little bit at a time 😦 I’m super tired still too.
Weight gain?: Nope, same 🙂
Best thing that happened this week?: Hearing the heartbeat on the doppler today!
Any baby-related purchases this week?: Nope
Milestones reached?: Well, the heartbeat on the doppler. And in 2 days, I will be the most pregnant I have ever been.
What size is the baby?: A green olive
Lea will be in town this afternoon and then we (including Lindsey) fly out for Vegas tomorrow! So excited! I just hope that staying busy and walking around will be good for my nausea and that I don’t get too tired 🙂
