So there really was a little baby in there today!!
We just had our appointment this afternoon and after a long chat with the doctor she finally started the ultrasound and BAM! There popped up a little baby on the screen! So crazy that every other time I’ve had one of those done everything looks so unidenifiable and “Oh yes, that’s the uterus, now we’re measuring the thickness. Lets search for your ovary now…” But wow, I needed no one to show me where the baby was! Baby was just chillin’ there, sitting pretty like he was ready for his first photo :)
And he took a good one! He looked like a chunky little gummy bear. I started to get worried because she was taking pictures but he wasn’t moving. I said something and she turned on the sound and we heard the heart beat! Super, super fast! Like 176. And he’s measuring at 9weeks, when really I’m something like 9weeks 3 days, so I guess that’s ok? I’m just reading that from the picture, she didn’t actually say anything… But then he started wiggling his arms and kicked his little legs! Crazy.
I started crying before the appointment even started. And then when he popped up on the screen, I started crying again. Such happy, happy tears.
And it was my swiss cheese ovary, ms. righty that made it happen. Way to go girl. Although I could have sworn it was the left ovary I felt the pain from last month. Oh well, if there is one thing I realized, its that I know so little.
Oh yeah, and he’s totally a little moonhead :)
