Week 7: Blueberry

Written week of December 11, 2011

The mild nausea has continued this week but I'm starting to get used to it. Bad news is, seems like cheeseburgers are one of the few foods that I can eat pretty consistently. At least it contains all the food groups?

The most exciting thing that happened this week was my first ultrasound! Seth came along with me to see how everything is progressing. Surprisingly we were able to hear and see a heartbeat! And our little "peanut"! Such a trippy thing! I think we were both expecting to see a small blurry image of the baby, but weren't quite expecting to hear the heartbeat so soon. Good news is it was a strong 152 beats per minute! We came away with the first 2 pictures of our little peanut and have them proudly displayed on the fridge. Can't wait to tell the family!

We also picked a name already. Ok... not really but here's a conversation Seth and I had the day after the ultrasound:

Me: I found a name for the baby!

Seth: Oh yeah?

Me: Yeah. Mah-NEE.... MAH-nee.... Muh-NEE?

Seth: Money Money Money?

Me: {laughing} No! I don't know exactly how to pronounce it.

Seth: I don't want any weird foreign names.

Me: No it's M-A-N-I..... Spanish for 'peanut'! HA!

So we now refer to our growing child as little "Money Hanson." I think it'd be a good investment, don't you?

I craved hamburgers too! That's how I knew it was a boy :) Eric certainly didn't mind, he was just happy I was having cravings since I didn't have ANY with Belen.
