It’s alive!! It has a strong heartbeat too! See the lines? and that tiny tiny speck? Well, that’s the heart. All the other nurses were really happy to hear the heartbeat. I think one of them even cried. Maybe. I imagined myself really getting emotional when I get to see my baby… but, nothing. I smiled like a dork. I was excited. But no tears. I wonder why.
The hubs said that it has a huge head. Well, that’s not the head. Based on my LMP (last menstrual period), my baby should be 8 weeks old. But the ultrasound says its only 7 weeks. I kinda felt bad because this means my baby won’t be born on my sister’s birthday.
I know its so trivial but you know… hormones. I’m just happy that everything is ok. When the doctor called me in, she gave me meds just to make sure that I don’t lose the baby. She says that its better to be very careful since I’m already past my 30’s. Plus I have borderline blood pressure.
I was advised that I could eat everything except: sweets, carbs, fatty food, processed food, shrimps, crabs, squid. Cake, chocolate, ice cream.
Basically eat everything except food. So excuse me while I chew on my pencil.
Can’t wait to get through my first trimester because it really sucks!! So excited!!
