We’re officially nine weeks (plus one day) and it’s Valentine’s Day! So much to celebrate. My heart is bursting with happiness!
I woke up early this morning and decided to try out the fetal doppler my Mom gave us. I was lying on the couch, a bit discouraged when a sleepy eyed Asaf walked into the room. I gave him an exaggerated frown (I can be dramatic in the mornings) and asked if he wanted to give it a shot. Just a moment after handing over the wand, we heard a heartbeat! Looks like Baby is hanging out on my right side!
Here’s my 9 week update:
Total weight gain so far: 1-2 lbs? (This could just be last night’s dinner.)
Cravings: Fruit! This week I’m finding it hard to think about real food (don’t worry. I’m still eating!). I much prefer all types of fruit.
What I miss: Coffee. Soft cheese. Wine (I bet wine misses me too).
What I’m excited about: Finally recovering from my cold! Cute maternity pants that I found on sale! Hearing a heartbeat today on our portable doppler!
What I’m nervous about: Picking out Baby’s name. So far our short list is … very short! Good thing we still have plenty of time before our Little One arrives!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Wishing you love, love, LOVE, today and always!
