7 weeks 3 days and a Blueberry!

I've taken to calling the embryo Blueberry because at 7 weeks its the size of a blueberry. B (husband, recovering goth) has been out of town on business all week, so he gets to hear every night that Blueberry misses him. Next week it's the size of a jelly bean, but I'm sure if its name will change, Blueberry has a nice ring to it.

Morning sickness is more like all day sickness/evening sickness. I've also developed an aversion to meat. Totally grossing me out. I'm trying to make sure I get enough protein with beans and quinoa. So far that's been working out.

Tomorrow we have our first appointment with my OB and an ultrasound. Excited to see Blueberry and hoping for the best. Trying to keep only positive thoughts flowing.

6 weeks 3 days

My ultrasound went well! It reset my due date to February 13th instead and 9th, which moved me back 4 days. I was suspecting that since I tend to ovulate late. Apparently I ovulated on cycle day 18. That's on the earlier side for me, so I'm feeling good about that. Also, I'm excited for the closer to Valentine's Day due date! Just one baby with a 115 heartrate which is a great number!

Next appointment is on July 1st with my doctor. I'll have another ultrasound then as well.

6 weeks 5 days

And an ultrasound tomorrow. The ultrasound is to make me less nervous. My wonderful midwife offered to call it in and suggested that if I'm nervous, its probably a good idea. We're crossing our fingers and hoping for the best while still being cautious.

My dad predicted twins and I have a feeling of twins as well but trying to not get too set on it. Twins would make all my plans more difficult but would also be really cool too. We just want a healthy baby(ies) at 40 weeks-ish.

Think good thoughts out into the universe.
