Overall I've been feeling quite a bit better this week - the queasiness is almost completely gone, except when I let myself get too hungry. Must feed the monster! (Whether that monster is me or Phred I'm not entirely sure.) Not so much of an aversion to sweet things either, although it's still there to some extent.
We had our second ultrasound this afternoon. Given that the little nausea I had been feeling had subsided this week, I was a little bit nervous - but that was totally unfounded.
You can definitely see the head and body now, the arm stubs (is that a technical term?;-), and what looks like eyes. Phred looks like a ghost in the picture! If he weren't already called Phred, we'd probably start calling him Casper.
The doc said that everything is looking fantastic. Measured the heart rate again, it's gone up to 176bpm this week. (From 108 at the last ultrasound). He checked my ovaries again, and told me that the egg came from the left side, because he could see the corpus luteum. I'm amazed that they can tell so much, down to which ovary the egg came from! Phred is measuring 8w1d.
I have my first appointment with the OB scheduled for Monday 2/6. I like getting to see the doc every two weeks, although I suppose I shouldn't get too used to it.
