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.

I am so excited for you both! It is an amazing journey to watch the baby grow. I learned the hard way to eat chocolate or drink a diet coke before an US. When we went for our 16 week US to find out the sex, after 25 minutes of searching and we only had a 30 minute appt. we figured out it was a boy. He was sleeping and wouldn't budge. So that's my advice if you want to see action.

That is so cool!!! Are you going to find out the sex? Meredith is right, I ate pancakes before my US and Savannah went crazy in there!
