I think the elevated metabolism in the first few weeks really helps with the weight issues. I lost a couple of pounds before I started gaining.

Haha. My house is a disaster and I really didn't feel like fixing it today. Sigh. Oh well. I am literally covered in red raised hives that itch so cleaning wasn't at the top of my to do list Not really nauseous today which always worries me. My symptoms make me rather happy so I don't like it when they aren't present.

My FIL was supposed to show up today and he showed up last night. So frustrating when that happens! I hope your hives clear up and you feel like crap again soon!

Thinking of you! I just know you are going to see the little heartbeat flickering away! That's too bad Joe can't go with you.

Perfect little heartbeat flickering away! Doc said their ultrasound can't measure a baby under 8 weeks so I didn't get the actual heart rate. Was pretty disappointed that I didn't get a picture but he rescheduled me for another ultrasound in exactly two weeks on the 14th. Said baby looked about 6 weeks and some change, close to 7 which matches up with my o date. I'll update more later. Going to eat before I starve.

I held my breath as this thread was opening and my heart stopped when I didn't see a photo! I'm so glad that you got to see the perfect little heartbeat flickering away! Isn't that the best?! I'm glad you get another ultrasound soon and can get a measurement then! I'm so happy for you, Crystal! This is your forever baby, I just know it!!!

Thanks guys! I was over the moon excited as soon as he put the wand in and instant gestational sac and bubs was visible. Then I saw flickering and almost lost it. I also freaked out momentarily when he switched to something else and I thought it was a second sac but it was some organ of mine or something lol. I did panic when he said wow your early, super early, like 6 weeks and some extra days, somewhere in between 6 and 7. I was like well yeah... that is what I am lol. I thought he was going to say like oh 4 weeks or something and freak me out. I do kind of wish they could have measured and I'll admit I was a bit disappointed with the lack of measurements but can't deny the awesome heartbeat. My doc is really enthusiastic and said yeah in two weeks it will even look like a baby! lol I'm liking the fact that I'll get frequent ultrasounds so less stress. Hopefully Joe is able to come next time but I am pretty sure he has jury duty that week so probably not. I'm feeling pretty confident now about this working out. Joe is all gung ho and sure everything is going to work out perfectly and wants to announce to everyone. Told him I would take a nap and talk to him about it later lol. Pretty worn out. I slept like crap last night. I literally almost puked while waiting for my appt just from nerves and hunger I think. They didn't change my due date or anything yet until they can measure at the next one so at that appt, they will give me my for suresies due date and I will update all my stuff with that. Thanks for everyones prayers. It means a lot to us. Joe said as soon as I got home, make sure you go tell the mommy forum lol. I'm just super thankful right now for a heart beat!

Well Joe's mom kept accidentally telling people about bubs and joe was dying to tell everyone so I figured, what the heck so we told everyone and the world lol. Easier than trying to keep secrets I spose.
