Actually i've been holding it together pretty well today - luckily work has been pretty busy!!

But now i'm starting to think about it... Not going to crazy yet, but i'm so excited!!! I want to meet Spike already and know that he or she is absolutely perfect and beautiful already!!!

3.5 more hours!!!!

UPDATE!

Our appointment went pretty well, but Spike wasn't cooperating. Stubborn kid already! She showed us the heartbeat beating away at 154 beats per second. She showed us the kidneys which she said was full and functioning. Spike was right on target for 13 weeks, which is exactly what she dated me at.

As far as the testing portion, they wanted to see the baby on it's back so they could get good measurements, but no matter what we did we couldn't get Spike to flip over. So i get to go back one week from today for a redo! Yay more pictures of my baby!!!

She gave me a disk with a couple of photos, but they weren't really that good. Here's one:



I'm in LOVE!!!

Thanks everybody!! Spike was moving it's arms and legs, but did not want to flip around to face the proper direction!!

I totally forgot during the ultrasound the tech was concerned about my right ovary. She took a bunch of photos to send to my doctor. Not sure if i should be worried about that or not!!

LOL...funny that you say the baby is stubborn. At my gender U/S with Savannah she was upside down on her head and wouldn't move. She was in summersault position. Luckily she looked for the gender right away and got a picture before she decided to be stubborn.

Ours is a stubborn one, too! No matter how much poking and prodding we did, we COULD NOT get this one to flip. Hahahahha Feisty is good! I'm glad that everything went well.

As for the ovary, were they maybe concerned about the size of the corpus luteum? I had a very large one with DS1. It was large enough for them to consider surgery, but we decided to wait it out. It went down a little, but never like it should have. I was just monitored closely. I hope that it's nothing!

Congratulations on a great rest of your appointment!

The tech wasn't very talkative, so don't know what to think. I realized she was taking a long hard look at my ovary so i asked her what was going on. She asked if we used fertility drugs to concieve and i said no. She said it was really enflamed and large, so she took a bunch of measurements and checked the blook flow and sent it on to my doctor. She didn't say anything else. This was the first ultrasound i've ever had and even i could tell that my right ovary was about twice the size of my left one.

I do know that the right ovary is my dominate ovary. In 4 months of TTCing every time i ovulated was from that ovary and had serious ovulation pains on that side. And post O i would have a lot of cramping on that side.

Hopefully i'll have a different ultrasound tech next week and i'll ask them to check it out again and hopefully have more response. Otherwise my next OB appointment isn't until the 24th.
