Just need to clairfy...

...that I am not carrying twins :)

When I refer to "Baby B" I am referencing the baby's last name that begins with a B, not the fact that there is also a "Baby A". There is just 1 healthy little bean in there - and I'm very happy about that :)

But I appreciate all the kind words, thoughts and prayers. Its been a bumpy ride this time around, but all seems to be settling down now. Here's to hoping for a boring 28 more weeks!!!

Ultrasound #3

We had a great OB appointment today! Baby B is perfect and Dr. R said he has allot of confidence that this pregnancy will be a good, long one :)

Baby measured 11w1d (we are 11w2d), and heart rate was 154.

God is so very good!!!! I am feeling truly blessed today :)

Baby looking straight at the U/S wand :) Has his/her right arm up by its head.

Profile of Baby B with its leg straight up in the air - which is where it was for most the u/s! He/she kept jumping, and every time he/she did, his/her arms would go flying. Was so stinkin' cute to see!

A perfect profile :)

Our next appointment is actually scheduled for next Tuesday - it will be our 12 week screen (u/s and labs). Yea for getting to see him/her again so quickly!!!

We passed the point...

....of the last pregnancy's miscarriage! Praise the Lord, He is so VERY GOOD!!!!

Today was our 9w3d mark and our 2nd scheduled ultrasound. We had a perfect appt - baby measured 9w3d and his/her heart rate was 174. The "large side of normal" yolk sac has shrunk to "normal" and the SCH we saw has decreased some in size, tho its still there. Not a concern to the RE unless I start to have heavy bleeding - and I don't anticipate that happening. The RE officially released us to my OB, so our next appointment is scheduled for 6/28 - 11w2d :)

Nail Salon Conversations

Girl: Are you going to have a baby?

Me: Um, yes, I'm pregnant...

Girl: When are you due?

Me: Well, not until January.

Girl: *look of surprise while smiling*

Me: *thinking to myself...dear God! I'm only 8w6d pregnant and I've just been asked if I'm having a baby! Thank God I could say yes....but seriously? I'm already being asked? Just how big does this belly look to everyone else?

1st Baby Belly Pic

I've been a little hesitant to post a belly shot just yet - I did it so much earlier with our last pregnancy! But here is one that my son took today while we were sitting on a bench....yep, had to go buy maternity shorts today :) Now I can sit & not have to unbutton my pants!!!

Quick Update

Everything is going as it should around here - I'm weaning off of estrogen and my numbers are rising, which means that I'm producing it on my own now :) Yippee!!! Now if I could just be done with the PIO shots, I'd be a really happy camper *sigh*.

Ultrasound is still scheduled for next Weds and I'm anxiously waiting to see Baby B's heartbeat again :) At that u/s, if all is well, we will have surpassed the point of the last pregnancy's miscarriage and I will finally be able to take a little breath. Until then, I'm holding it and praying!
