10w3d u/s today
Everything went very well today. It's amazing in just two weeks how things change. She actually looks like a baby now and not a little alien. Oh and btw, we both have that gut feeling it's going to be a girl so for ease sake, we're calling it a "her" instead of an "it". Just sounds better. Of course it makes no difference to us what sex she ends up being. We'll love him or her the same! Anyway, on the u/s screen we saw her jumping around all over the place. Moving her arms and legs. She flipped over to face us once too. It was really cool. The u/s pics on the screen are way different than the ones they print. It was just amazing. She measures exactly on track at 10w 3d and her hb was 168. This appointment was a milestone for us because we’re past the time last time when our last baby died. Although I miscarried at 11 ½ weeks, the baby at that time only measured at 9 1/2 weeks. That’s definitely a great feeling. Still scared but getting closer to a little less anxiety. Still, at this appointment, I was so nervous. In fact the minute leading up to being able to see her on the screen, I was almost shaking. I held my breath and as soon as I heard and saw that heartbeat, I was able to breath. Ah such a relief! Again, so much for us to be thankful for this Christmas. I just feel so overwhelmed with happiness, especially after we leave these u/s appointments. It's just a miracle that I am growing a little human being inside of me. I'm beginning to love it more and more by the second. It's so hard because I've been trying to hold back due to cautiousness but I just can't help it. I'm loving this baby so much already! I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Here's to a healthy, happy and prosperous 2010!!!!
