I was at my sonographer's office today, so I had her do a quick scan for me. I'm 6w2d by conception date... and baby was measuring right on at 7.6mm.

That's so exciting, congratulations!!

This pg doesn't even seem real to me yet, because I've been having minimal symptms, we haven't told anyone yet, and I haven't had any appointments...but something like that would be so cool!

Awesome...Sundace_11, I know what you mean. I mean, I have some symptoms, they're just not very severe and I often time feel like pinching myself or taking a bunch of tests. I'm 6w5d, so my little one has a heart now, too! Yay. Maybe that's why I was craving meat, meat, meat for like 4 days straight. Now I want grains.

Mama to one little blur, watching everything move too fast. Eden 4/10/2009.

Hooray for a hb! You must have been on a high from that all day! :

I admit to being slightly jealous -- my first prental appt. isn't until I'm 9 1/2 wks. along, and while I'm fine with that, every day I wake up and feel totally normal my mind starts playing tricks on me and makes me wonder if I just imagined the whole two lines thing, lol.

Pregnancy is such a mind game: if you're sick, you're worried that you're too sick and something's wrong. If you're not sick, you're worried that you're not sick enough and something's wrong. I would have thought I'd be less paranoid by my sixth pg, but no, I think I'm more paranoid b/c now I know all too well all the things I should be worrying about!
