7 week scan & heartbeat
Today’s appointment was so exciting! We got to see and hear baby’s heartbeat for the first time. From the scan, Dr. A determined that the baby’s heart is beating at 116 beats per minute (bpm) and is now 0.66cm from crown to rump (ctr), about the size of a Tic-Tac. Baby is now 10,000 times larger than at conception, no wonder I’ve been tired! I have my final RE scan next Friday at 8 weeks, and then I go in a few weeks for my 12-week OB appointment. As for pregnancy, I’m feeling much more nausea pretty much around the clock. I don’t mind too much, though. It is reassuring in a way because it lets me know baby is growing and my body is continuing to change. I’ll keep you posted!
