7 weeks and a heart beat

I had my seven week ultrasound today and it was amazing!! I got to hear and see the baby's heartbeat. Wow!! I have a little human growing inside me with it's own heartbeat!! I was so thrilled. I left the doctor's office with the biggest smile. First, I had to show everyone in the office my new picture, where you can actually see the baby! Looks like a little tic-tac.

I've got to get the pictures up so you can see the growth. I don't have to go back for 2 weeks for my next ultrasound. What? I've gotten so spoiled, I need a week by week picture. Everything looked so good that I don't need to come back until 9 weeks and then that will be my last appointment. How sad! I will miss them but keep them posted.

My ovaries are starting to look better, I'm still at risk to blow up again, But I drink a lot of water and have to have lots of protein. I think I'll be in the clear around 10 to 12 weeks.
Shaun and I are just so thrilled. I just keep saying to him, "Can you believe I have a baby in my belly?" We're both so amazed.
Shaun still gives me my progesterone oil shot every night. Whatever it takes!!
I must go and get to bed. I've never felt so tired before in my life!! My body is working hard for this baby. Keep growing!

Yeah, I am glad to see that you are doing well. The nausea is hard, I know. But hang in there, hopefully you will feel better around 12 weeks or so. One thing that would help me is to eat a little something about every 2-3 hours. I know you feel like you are such a pig. But nothing big, like 1/2 an apple, or a small yogurt, or a cheese stick. That seemed to help me at least get through work until I could get home to lay on the couch for a while. Hang in there, I am still praying for you guys. btw love your header pic!
