10 weeks 3 days!

Today's appointment went really well.  I was disappointed when the nurse sat us in a room with no ultrasound machine but we got to hear the beautiful heartbeat on the doppler!  I was starting to get nervous and Dr P told me to calm down and he was about to have it and then "whoosh, whoosh, whoosh!"  It sounded like a panting puppy!  The heartrate wouldn't register on the doppler readout because it was quiet due to my "fluff" (read fat) but he said it was perfect.  He also told me we're having a boy because I haven't been sick; Eric's eyes lit up!  We'll be thrilled either way but a boy sounds wonderful!

I go for my Nuchal Translucency Screening in a week and a half on Monday the 21st and we'll finally get to see our little bean again!  I will be 12 weeks 1 day.  I have to go to a perinatologist for it because Dr P doesn't do the scan at his office but from what I hear the doctor is fantastic and you get AMAZING ultrasound pictures.  I can't wait!  I am thinking I may make the big announcement on facebook that we're expecting after that.  Any ideas?

I am finally home from dog sitting so I promise to start commenting your blogs again, I've been reading just haven't had much time to comment.

I wish I had an ultrasound picture to post but I'm sure I will overload you with them after the NT scan!

  6. Yay, so glad you got to hear the hb, isn't that the best!! And I'm going for my NT scan the day after yours, we have to go to a specialist too and they said the u/s would last 1.5 hours!! I'm so excited to see our bean for that long. LTB said she saw her baby sucking its thumb and moving all around, how cool! We're thinking of making our announcement after that as well...we're so close!!

  8. Aw man! I was hoping for photos and an mp3 of the heartbeat to go along with them. :) So, so glad to hear that things are progressing. You keep taking good care of yourself.

  9. Did you see your baby is about the size of a lime now??? That's getting pretty big. I just looked at my hand and pictured it! Wow... wasn't that long ago we were talking about blueberries!

  10. Wow, the weeks are flying by! Almost done with the 1st trimester.

    A Facebook announcement, maybe something like "waiting for the new gift set to arrive _____." But then, that may be too vague. Just a suggestion!
