Thump. Thump. Thump.

Just got back from ultrasound number 2.  Since my lab results were looking good, I haven't been feeling too concerned.  In fact, I've been more than relaxed about things.  Which is weird.  I started thinking, well, there's no indication anything's really happening; but on the same token, there's not indication anything's wrong either.  So I decided to just go along for the ride.  Maybe the reason I'm not worried is because there's no reason to be.  It's like that motherly instinct has already kicked in.

Anyway, I was feeling super exhausted last week.  Taking daily naps, which is really out of my comfort zone.  But the past few days I've been feeling pretty normal.  Almost threw up yesterday while I was brushing my teeth, and got a little excited about it (although glad it was almost!).  Otherwise, my big boobs and tight pants are about all that's different about me these days.  Nate might say I'm moody and emotional...but who asked that jerk?!  ;-)

So back to the ultrasound.  Doc said my last u/s measured 4 weeks 6 days.  That kinda concerned me because, according to my calculations -- and I am the expert here -- I would have been 5 weeks 3 days.  Not sure how I could have been that far off, and made me wonder if something might be wrong.  Today they were estimating I'd be 6 weeks 4 days, which is five days short of my estimate, but, in any case, is far enough along to see a heartbeat.  I decided not to argue and just went with it.

Probe in.  Picture on.  There it was.  Our little baby's beating heart!  Yep.  Just fluttering away like nobody was watching.  Oh, and not only that.  The little bugger measured in at 7 weeks and 2 days.  Whose calculation did that match up with...ahem... EXACTLY?  Oh, that's right...MINE!  As they say, Mother knows best. 

Here he/she/it is.  Hmm...need to come up with some kinda nickname.  Bean?  Peanut?  Pumpkin?  I'll let you know when the verdict is in.

P.S.  Gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks.  I know they say you aren't really supposed to eat for two, but it's so much more fun that way!  Guess I should cut back on the sugar.  Definitely enjoying my carbs, though!  Next u/s May 10th.
