Had another ultrascan today. We could see the heartbeat this time. Judging by the baby's length, the little one is estimated to be about 7 weeks old (which tallies with the calculation by last menstrual cycle). I hope the little one is doing fine. The doctor prescribed one month's supply of folic acid (also received during the last visit).

The persistent hunger and cravings during the earlier 1 and a 1/2 weeks have subsided. My appetite's been rather poor for the past week or so. Nothing seemed to tickle the tastebuds, everything tasted like sawdust. Which is extraordinary for someone who always manages to derive pleasure from food, from plain meat porridge to sinfully yummy curries to cheese-coated marinated fish fillet grilled to perfection. The only food items which I can tolerate now are fresh fruits, plain soup/porridge, cereal and soy milk. :) Really thankful that I don't suffer from morning sickness though...
