one hungry caterpillar!

I am very relieved to say that there is one little bean in there, which H and I saw on my first ultrasound yesterday! Stunning, really, to realize that there is a heart beating deep inside me, that two little cells have evolved to this point and godwilling will continue to do so. The little blob we saw looked like the bean was *all* heart :) -- because the whole blob was whomping around in the sac. This means that I've graduated from the RE office and now need to choose a midwife, also stunning.

Amidst all this, I am enjoying getting to be a bit of the earth mama I hope to be. Which at the moment, other than making my own yogurt, mostly means eating very well/organic/nothing processed, being calm, listening to soothing music, trying to get enough exercise and water and omega-3s, sleep, yadda. It's not as challenging at this point as I imagine it would be with a human on the outside! 

And gosh, I am HUNGRY ALL THE TIME! I woke up in the night restless and feeling hungry, and I thought "hunger and thirst often feel the same; I'll start with a large glass of water" (so I don't eat every single time the thought occurs to me) -- but lo and behold, after the water and some reading, I was still definitely hungry. Ate some walnuts, and woke up at 7 AM...hungry.

I've been ravenous, too! I keep food next to the bed for when I wake up at 5am with my stomach growling... the gf thinks it's hilarious. It's certainly a much more amusing problem than nausea.

Best of luck to both of you!

I keep a box of granola bars next to my side of the bed for those late night hunger sessions!

I'm starting to get the hungry all the time thing as well. I woke up and had a granola bar this morning first thing (this and a piece of fruit used to tide me over until lunch), and an hour later, when J was making breakfast, I was famished again.

I'm so happy for your healthy scan! You sound great!
