So I had my pre-screening appointment today! I was just expecting a boring appointment with paperwork and bloodwork. This is a new office/doctor. I just needed something different this time around. I am in love, so far, with the staff and the office. The nurse doing the screening was just amazing and we learned that we both had daughter born on 7.20.07 AND had daughters born in September of '09! At the same hospital! It's just everything I hoped it would be. I'll be meeting the doctor at my next appointment on the 11th.

In the middle of the bloodwork I mentioned that the previous Peri Doctor and Ob/Gyn wanted to get my an NT scan. It was in my records so the nurse printed them out right there and sent it over for an ultrasound!!

I was already a nervous wreck just starting the prenatal care all over again, but I seriously thought I was gonna puke as we walked back to the room.

Immediately after they put the wand on we saw the baby "good, there is a baby", then I looked for a heartbeat "awesome there is one there too". Streams of tears, girls. Streams of tears. I just can't describe how amazing it was. The relief. A million pounds have been lifted off my shoulders.

Baby looked amazing! HB was 180 and measured right on track. The baby was moving like crazy, kicking it's legs, showing the goods (which still look the same, and no nub shot). The reason for the scan was for the NT measurements, but the baby was literally a day away from getting a good measure. So I'll be going back on the 11th for the NT scan and to have an actual doctor appointment.

Huge sigh of reflief. I'm so glad everything looks great AND I didn't have to wait any longer to see the baby. Plus, the pressure leading up to the appointment for next time won't be near what it would have had we not seen the baby.

Here's a picture of the wee little one See, s/he is waving <3

Aw, thank you Amy, so much. Your support has been amazing through all of this love you girl! can't wait till I can't until it's your turn!


Thank you all so much! Sorry the whole post is a little discombobulated. I was still on a high, my thoughts were jumbled and I was going off 4 hours of sleep I can't help but smile the rest of the day. Just wow. It's so nice to have good news after all we've been through. I feel like I can move forward a little more.
