McBaby is a lime!

It's 10:15 pm. How am I awake, do you wonder? Simple. I've been asleep since about 6:-)

Two little milestones today. 1) McBaby graduated to lime stage, and 2) the little lime still has a heart beat! Dr. S tried to hear the h/b with a doppler. When I reminded her of my retroverted uterus, she put that down and went straight to the u/s machine. Yes, it was the crappy one, but it was just fine with me.

I saw baby, and then immediately went searching for the h/b. I must have said something like "Where's the h/b? Is there still a h/b?" She zeroed in on it for me and I was immediately a happy camper.

She also gave me a script for Zofran. I'm excited about starting that, in hopes of feeling somewhat normal. I told her about my headaches and she told me they go hand in hand with the nauseau. Oh, and she said my weight gain was in normal limits (i.e. about 3 pounds).

We go back in 4 weeks!!!
Not the best scan, but like I said it's the crappy u/s machine.

I love how every weeks comparison is to a fruit or a vegetable. Right now I've got two little heirloom tomatoes in my belly!!

I don't know that I'll ever stop with that moment of panic before I see the heartbeat, but then when it's there, it's like I just chill out.

I had to take Zofran too, and believe me it made a world of difference. I was throwing up constantly and couldn't eat anything but with the zofran I was actually able to eat and keep it down.
