I had my first appointment with my OB today! She did another ultrasound and it was AMAZING. I've got a little wiggle baby in there! I got Dh to video it on our digital camera and I am SO glad he did. At first when I told him I wanted him to video the ultrasound he thought I meant of me getting wanded (vaginally!) and he didn't want to do it. I was like WHY would I want that?! I want video of the baby! Silly husband.

I think I saw that the baby measured 33 mm but I'm not totally sure and I think that's normal. She didn't measure the heart but we did see it beating fast for a few seconds so I guess that's fine.

She answered all my questions and said no concern was too silly for me to call up there and ask.

My blood pressure was a bit high but when they retook it a few minutes later it was fine. They also drew a bunch of blood.

My next visit is in 4 weeks, Oct. 30. We'll be able to hear the heartbeat with a doppler by then. I'm feeling so good about this little one I am almost convinced to go ahead and tell everyone at work. I don't think I can wait another month.

Without further ado...baby's pic:



Look at that little arm and those little legs! Ack!

And my favorite that I'll be watching over and over...the video of our little wiggle baby. Most of the commentary is my OB.

I'm so happy for you Shannon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!! I can't watch the video here at work, but I love that picture!!!! I'm so thrilled for your sticky bean!!!!!!!!

Also, as I was reading I thought you had said something about your little man. I went back and re-read your entire post. No comment on the sex at all. So I'm going to go w/ my gut and guess it's a little boy in there. I can't wait to watch your progress and we get to see more of your little one!!!!

Good luck

You know I really have not had a "feeling" up until recently and I am starting to think it's a boy. I dunno just a feeling.

You can hear on the video my Dh says something about "He knows he's on video. Or she."

That's too funny! I haven't even watched the video, and somehow I picked that up. Bizarre! Well my vote is boy, we'll have to remember that when it comes time to do your big u/s in a few weeks.

OMG Shannon!!!!!!!!
I'm so happy for you, the video it's awesome, great idea to take a video of the u/s, I told dh to do it when we went for my u/s, but then I forgot and of course he did too.

About the feeling of being a boy or a girl. I had the feeling that it was a boy the whole time, then I strated having dreams about us having a little girl so, I told dh that I thought it was girl because of my dreams and it turned out to be boy, so stick to the feeling.

LOL! I wasn't hungry but knew I needed to eat something so about 30 minutes before my ultrasound I had one of those little Dole fruit cups with peaches, pineapple and mango in it.

I've been searching for a darn update! Man, you are hard to find...ok...I don't have all that much time to check every day but when I can I do so it is really my fault that I can't find you, LMAO! Wow...what a long-winded explanation!

I can't believe your little bean is such a wiggle worm! WOW! I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to see that tummy of yours grow & that little bean to get bigger! How exciting!
