First Doc Visit
Here are our first ultrasound photos! These were taken on our first doctor's appointment on 4/25/06. At that time they said that the baby was about 8 weeks and 2 days old, give or take five days. The estimated due date is December 3rd. It was so amazing to see that the baby was really there and to hear the heart beat was unforgettable. The heart rate of the baby was 165 bpm, which they say is normal. Since the baby is so small at this time they have to do an internal ultrasound, called a Doppler. For those of you that want to hear details of this experience feel free to ask me but I will spare those who are not interested in learning about this "internal experience." Next week we have our twelve week appointment. Hopefully we will be able to post those pictures sooner than these.
As some of you know I had to go and buy new work pants. Although my stomach isn't really showing (no more than the pooch I already had), my old pants were uncomfortable around my stomach when I was sitting down at work. Hopefully the next time I have to buy new pants won't be for a while but I won't hold my breath. I know everyone is waiting for the morning that I wake up and my stomach is hard and round. Then I can start posting pictures of myself so you can see me grow and grow!
