9 Weeks + Ultrasound!

I was so happy to hit 9 weeks! Last week was just awful with that stomach flu... this week on the other hand was wonderful in comparison. Plus, we got to see the little one again!

Symptom wise, I've been very emotional. I don't typically cry often, but I feel like I've cried more during this pregnancy than I have in the last few years combined. I'm still having quite strong food aversions which is making eating and food prep difficult. Honestly, most foods are pretty gross to me right now! I'm still feeling the nausea here and there, but the unisom & B6 is really helping for the morning sickness. I have been able to gain a few pounds back after being so sick, but I'm still not back up to my regular weight. Hoping I get there soon!

Our ultrasound went very well! The baby was moving around a lot :) Our little one was measuring perfectly at exactly 9 weeks with a CRL of 2.26cm!! I can't believe how quickly they are growing! More than doubled in size since our last ultrasound. The heart rate was 194! Our RE said it's normally probably a bit lower than that, but the little one was moving around quite a bit, so their heart rate rises accordingly. I love knowing that they are already so full of energy!

The ultrasound also looked so much more like a real baby! We even got to see the little legs at one point. Here's a video from our two ultrasounds:

My RE said I could stop my PIO shots cold turkey that night at 9 weeks... but I was uncomfortable with that. So he said we can step down and wean off of it. Which sounds much better to me :)

After this second ultrasound, I've been officially released from my RE's office!! Definitely a bitter sweet moment. I'm so happy to be at the point where I can be released... but I've never had such good medical providers before. I wish they could take care of me during my whole pregnancy!! They truly were the kindest nurses and doctors I've ever met.
