It's a BABY!!!

Good news!  I had my ultrasound today and everything looks great!  Just one baby, measuring on target, and saw a teensie-tiny heartbeat!

My due date is officially September 18th!  Which seems like a long time away, but remember that you will get to see me expand to ridiculously huge proportions until then.  Like this.!!

It was so surreal sitting on the butcher-paper with no clothes on and waiting for the doctor while staring at the ultrasound screen.  I kept thinking- "Is this happening?  Am I here- AGAIN?!"

Ditto on peeing in the cup before the appointment.

After the doctor treated me to a 10 minute lecture of things that I can/can't eat and do (Lady, like I just told you, this is not my first rodeo...OR my second rodeo..and if you say "sushi" one more time, I am going to vomit all over you) 
she brought out that nice little ultrasound device 
(not the kind that goes on my tummy)  
(if you don't know, don't ask, you don't WANT to know) 
and there was my adorable little white speck on the screen!

Can I say that it looked like a girl-shaped speck?   Wishful thinking?

I can't upload the picture right now- but stay tuned tomorrow when #3 makes his/her blog debut!  

Perhaps I should title it "Anticlimactic Little White Speck On a Blurry Photo That Probably Only I Can See"?

You've been warned.

I never actually had an ultrasound in that manner. Heard of it, didn't have it done.

So by my calculations you are, what, 8 weeks?

Congrats! We're so excited for you and sending pink thoughts your way :)

I'm so hoping you have a girl … just to balance out things a bit for you!

Caitlin said...

We are so excited for you guys! Can't wait to see the little photo even if it is anticlimactic.

I had my first ultrasound at 8 weeks... but they did it the normal way (thank God!). I can't wait to see your picture!

Oooh - those kinds of ultrasounds are not fun. I know from experience but seeing the baby on the screen is so worth it. We never saw our babies so early, though, so maybe worth the discomfort.

It is going to be a beautiful baby no matter what. We have lots of friends having baby boys so I think statistically speaking, you have to have a girl to balance things out.

We've added you and baby to our prayers list - T Rex keeps a list of expectant moms who he says special prayers for to ensure safe healthy babies and deliveries.

Take care and enjoy. I know you enjoy being pregnant and most aspects of having babies so continue to embrace that and with your incredible attitude toward life, you will will sail through this pregnancy. Before we know it, you'll be posting age 2 photos of this little one.

Hugs to you, Dear Friend.
