Wow so much has happened this week! I had more spotting, plus a little cramping, so the doctor told me to come in. She was able to hear the heartbeat with the doppler, which was so cool. I think that was one of the sweetest sounds I have ever heard! She took a look and said everything looked ok, but she'd send me for an ultrasound too just to make sure. I had the ultrasound this morning. Wow. It was incredible. My husband came along, he's been a little jealous I got to see the first ultrasound and hear the heartbeat, so this was really neat for him. The baby was so active, I didn't realize how much they move around! It was waving it's tiny arms and kicking and just moving it's whole body around. I could see all the little fingers, and when we got a shot from the front I saw it's chubby little face! I'm still in awe of what I saw this morning. It's so hard to beleive that little creature is growing inside me.
The tech asked if I'd ever been told I had a fibroid, so I'm a tad concerned about that. She's going to check an ultrasound I had done back in January before I was pregnant, and that should give her the information she needs. I hope nothing is wrong!
It was my birthday yesterday. Now I am 26 years old. It's not a big landmark birthday, last year made me feel kind of old, this time it just....is. I had a nice little celebration with my family. I got some neat gifts (body shop stuff, candles, rice maker, chocolate for cravings, hehe) but the best one came from my husband. He got me a digital camera!! I'd sort of wanted one for a while, but now with the baby coming I really wanted to have one. I'm so excited, I need to get new battaries for it, but I can't wait to start taking photos!
