There's Someone In There

We had our first ultrasound this morning. Our baby is about 1/8th of an inch small right now. And we saw it. A yolk sack, and a teeny tiny being attached, and... a beating heart.

Best guess right now is that we are five weeks along.

We have our first pregnancy appointment a week from tomorrow. We'll have another ultrasound then to get a more accurate due date. And then not again for quite some time.

There is a heart beating inside of me.

We also told mom and dad today... this is really happening.

I'm smiling really, really wide right now!

Oh, in case you are up for more anti-nausea advice... with Corissa, I kept a box of cheerios next to my bed. If I ate a handful first thing in the morning before even lifting my head off the pillow, it really helped a lot.

Isn't it cool to see that beating heart?

I *heart* you!

isn't it amazing to see that tiny heart? I am so glad that you did get to see it -
And prayers that your nausea doesn't last long - pregnancy is much more fun without it!
Hope that you are starting to feel the joy now - I am so, so, so happy for you and Kevin!

Ginger was a magic "cure" for me. While ginger snaps for breakfast wouldn't be everyone's fare, I needed them in order to get out of bed for far longer than I'll admit until you're feeling better! :)
