1st Ultrasound!

Friday, January 9, 2009

I had a great doctors appointment today. I finally got to see this little person. The baby is measuring perfectly for the August 5th due date. Baby is currently 3.44 cm long (head to butt). Doctor showed me the cord and the beginnings of the placenta. Baby has 2 arms and 2 legs and there is only ONE baby!!!! The doctor said the baby was very active and I can promise it's Jay's child -- you should have seen the "show" that was put on for the ultrasound. Baby was kicking and waving, a camera ham -- just like Jay. :) I did get to hear the heartbeat it was 177 beats per minute, which the dr. tells me is great! I'm very excited and grateful that all is well.

Here are two pictures for your viewing pleasure:

This picture is labeled, but from left to right: Head -- 2 arms -- back and butt (legs are curled up in front)

This is a front shot: Left to right -- Head -- Body with arms and then little legs and feet!

See you all soon. I promise I'll post a picture of me. I still don't look pregnant yet.

9 weeks and counting...

Thursday, January 1, 2009

First and foremost -- HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Jay and I did manage (barely) to stay awake last night to see the infamous peach (and the NY ball) drop, quiet an accomplishment seeing as I can't go but about 2 hours and I'm in serious need of a nap. :)

I'm still feelin' good with the exception of being tired, but it's nothing I can't handle and get past. I did hear from my OB this week and I can't see the Specialist until January 13th, which stinks, but that's the first new patient appointment that they had available. I do have a regular OB appointment next Friday, January 9th, and we are really hoping to have an ultrasound done. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO anxious to see this little person that's growing inside me. We're already making plans for a spring yard sale to clean out some of the clutter that needs to go before we can even begin to think about setting up a nursery.

I promise that I'll post a 9 week picture tomorrow. I opted not to straighten my hair today and it's pretty crazy looking and I wouldn't want to subject you wonderful people to that.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Until Later...
