Bagel

Posted on

I want to write much much more on all of this, but for now, a quick update before bed with a promise of more to come will have to do.

Today was, plain and simple, heaven. I saw my baby’s heart beat for the first time. It was a tiny flicker on the screen, but it might as well have filled the room, my lungs, my heart, my world. 158 strong healthy beats per minute, and this little one was measuring a day ahead of schedule at 7weeks 5 days.

Very early on in my pregnancy, I could not stop eating bagels and cream cheese. It was all my body seemed to want. This was also a time when a baby’s size is compared to poppy seeds and sesame seeds, so Hubs and I came up with a name that made perfect sense for our little person: Bagel. I didn’t want to come out with this name until after our first ultrasound, but now that I have seen that gorgeous little flicker of light heart beating, I am proud to announce that Bagel seems as though he likes my uterus well enough to make a cozy home in there. I will post some pics on a separate tab as soon as I can get them scanned and uploaded.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me good thoughts as I dealt with the anxiety of not knowing how Ultra-Thursday would turn out. These early days in pregnancy are so hard to get through, but that tiny little heart beat just gave me a world full of hope.

About Sunny

I'm a happily married, 31 year old gal who is just starting her journey to conceive. I also have ovaries that may need a jump start. This blog is an attempt to channel my obsessive research on my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome into something positive....like a pregnancy test. That would be awesome. I also hope that other women with this condition will find support in this blog. There are a lot of us out here! Happy reading, whatever your journey may be.

  6. Yay Bagel! I’m so happy this is looking good for you!

    And I can totally relate to the bagel and cream cheese cravings. When I was around 7 weeks, I had bagels and cream cheese for lunch and dinner, and then the next day for breakfast, lunch and dinner again. It’s the only thing I wanted!

  9. Congrats! This is wonderful news. Welcome Bagel!

    (I used to love bagels and cream cheese, but cream cheese and yogurt are two food aversions that have lasted through this pregnancy. I think I’ve been able to stomach a bagel maybe twice since May.)

    • Haha! After I hit the 7 week mark, I was starting to regret the decision, but in the end, it was so lovely to see Bagel it was worth the wait. Can’t wait to hear more about your little one baking in that oven of yours. Can’t believe we’re like 4 days apart!
