First Ultrasound

So I FINALLY had my first ultrasound on Friday and it was the most amazing experience of my life. Only 1 little baby!!! Hearing and seeing that little heartbeat was so amazing. Today I am 6 weeks and 6 days (my ultrasound was on 6 weeks and 2 days) I'm due Sept. 12th and the little heartbeat was 130BPM. So amazing. I have another ultrasound on Feb. 4th (I will be 8 weeks and 3 days) and then I should be released to a OB. I am so in love with that little peanut growing in there already.

The pictures didn't turn out the best :( We got to see MUCH more on the screen. But you can see the little itty bitty baby right under where it says Baby. <3 I love you little peanut.

I'm feeling pretty good actually. Not really much morning sickness yet. A little nausea once in awhile, but nothing too major. Lots of heartburn, and all I'm craving is spicy food so that's a bad mix, haha. I've been REALLY tired and my breasts are super sore. But other than that, I'm feeling good!

So, I'm actually feeling great! My Beta came in yesterday at 316! So my levels increased perfectly and I don't have to do anymore blood work. I would be about 5 weeks pregnant. My first ultrasound is scheduled for January 20th! I'm so excited and scared all rolled into one. I don't know how I'm ever going to make it to the 20th. I'm also very anxious to see how many babies are growing in there since I could have released 4 eggs! With how low my HCG levels are though I'm really thinking that it's probably only 1, possibly 2. I've had a lot of cramping, that started before I even knew I was pregnant. But no spotting, so I'm trying not to worry too much. But of course it's hard not to worry. But other than that my symptoms so far are fairly minor. My boobs are SORE, I'm constipated, and I'm tired. Today I noticed that my sense of smell is off, but that just started today and not sure if it's going to last. Hopefully not! I've been pretty gaggy too, but not really "morning sick" yet, just certain things make me gag and I'm pretty picky at what I eat now. BUT it isn't bad. It's all so exciting and I'm loving it. I can't wait to be a momma <3
