Ultrasound #3: 9 Weeks

Another good report at my FINAL RE VISIT today!

I'm measuring 9 weeks, 0 days, which is right on schedule from where the little guy has been in the past 3 weeks, but still not consistent with my chart. We got to see and hear the heartbeat again - it's up to 174 bpm! That's right about smack in the middle of "average" for 9 weeks, so things are looking good.

It's starting to feel like this is going to happen. There is still risk, as there will be the whole pregnancy, but with no bleeding or spotting and a good heart rate, we are very optimistic about actually having a baby in June!

I've experienced all the normal symptoms except heartburn and constipation. In fact, I am suffering from the opposite of constipation - I've had diarrhea five times in three weeks. One day it was bright green, so that was kinda concerning. After some obsessive googling, I think it's fine. Something about passing through your body too quickly to change the color, yada yada yada. Have I officially crossed into TMI or am I still toeing the line?

Also, no one ever told me about the "throwing up in my mouth a little," which has now happened four times in two weeks.

All in all, not bad problems to have, friends. I'll take it.

  2. Yeah-it's called decreased bowel transfer time. I used to have issues with it. It's not a big deal as long as it's not happening a lot.

    Glad you're doing so great!

  8. Oh the joys of reflux;) Unpleasant, but sooo much better than throwing up a lot, anywhere.
    Hooray for graduating to the OB and a healthy 9 week u/s! Couldn't be happier for you!

  9. Congrats on your graduation! It's exciting and a little scary to leave the specialty clinic and start seeing an ob like all the other normal pregnant women.
    I'm 10w2d today and haven't experienced constipation yet either (knock on wood). For as sick as I've been feeling, I'm glad to at least not to have to suffer in the bowel department. All the other symptoms are bad enough!

  12. Congratulations on that final visit! I've visited your blog before but was just directed here as I was just diagnosed with premature ovarian aging. My ovaries are not at the "failure" stage yet, but stories like yours are super encouraging! So happy for you.

  14. Hey lady- are you still running right now?

    I am but I'm not cycling. Would love to know if you're running right now and if you've scaled back, etc.

    1. I haven't been running AT ALL... my boobs have turned into uncontrollable beasts and running doesn't agree with them. That, on top of feeling nauseous even when I walk too much... not a good combo. But I DEFINITELY want to get into it at least a little when I arrive in the 2nd trimester and start to feel better!
