First "official" appt

Well I had my "official" first appt yesterday with another u/s (yay!) :) Bean is looking great and measuring basically right on. He (I use he only because Bean sounds more boyish to me than girlish LOL) was measuring at 7wks, but the tech said he could be bigger but she couldn't get a very good measurement since my uterus (in her words) is tipped WAY, WAY back and Bean was hiding WAY, WAY in the back ;-) I guess he was little camera shy yesterday. Pics to follow. I wasn't able to upload them to my computer, but I will this weekend.
H/b was 149bpm, which puts m/c risk at less than 1%. My doc said at 10wks he may take a gender guess based on the h/b (according to the tech he is right 8-9 times out of 10!) so we'll see what he guesses in about 3 weeks ;-)
I'm still feeling sick so they had be start taking B6 50mg 3xday and 1/2 tablet of Unisom right before bed. I am still on the progesterone supps until they run out- somewhere between 10-12 wks. They haven't been too horrible other than a little drippage, but nothing a pad can't take care of.
We have been cleared for BD again (okay I realize it's not for the same purpose, but it's one of my FAVORITE acronyms LOL) and I can also get back to exercising more than walking Hooray! He approved out diet (we eat a whole foods plant based diet) and said if I had any nutrition questions he can put me in touch with a dietician at the hospital (it's across the street from both his office and my work office) That was nice to hear :)

I am glad things are going good with you.

I have found that apples and 7up do wonders for my waves of nausea.

Great news! I hope the B6 does the trick for the m/s.

Enjoy the BD! We chanced it the other night, gently, with no ill effects. So, I think we'll be fine.

Congrats!!!

As for the heartbeat thing - it worked 2 out of 3 times. All my babies had high HB's (in the 160s) by 10 weeks. I thought for sure I was having another girl. but as we all know, Karl has a penis.
