Ultrasound Pictures

Friday, March 15, 2013

I got back to town and had my super exciting ultrasound appointment yesterday! It was the most wonderful experience! My DH looked so thrilled also! Everything looks great and healthy. The baby has a heartbeat of 160 bpm, and we were able to see the little heart beating and hear it too. emoticon We also saw the little hands moving around (I think he/she was waving at us) and even saw the little brain. THAT was crazy! It was all such an awesome experience that I will never forget as long as I live. So, here they are, the first pics of my little tiny precious baby!

Little tiny foot!

Baby before hiding from the camera!

Cute little froggy legs!

Just to give a quick update also, spending time with my parents was not AS bad as I anticipated. I actually had a lot of fun with my mom. My dad....eh... But, I did remain calm no matter what was said to me. Right now, I'm concerned with the good health of my little one. I just kept taking deep breaths in the tough moments and keeping calm. Thanks for all your wonderful support before I left! I was so glad to come back home to my sweetie! While I was gone, he got SOOOO much done around our house. He started the texturing process in the nursery, got a lot of painting done, and got our bedroom hardwood floors refinished. Here they are:

We will be in our bedroom inside a week or two. I can hardly wait! Now, I have to really focus for the next week. Our 5k color run is next Saturday. I have been walking to prepare. I have to do it early in the day though, because by the end of the day, my ankles are so swollen, I can barely move my legs! Anyway, I hope all of you have had an excellent week! I have missed being on here very much! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    How very precious! That is so very special to have a little life growing inside of you!
    Wonderful to hear you enjoyed the time with your Mom at least -I couldn't see her not being excited about a new grandchild, but men, well, a big bitch slap to your dad for being a meanie!!
    Those floors look amazing! Your hubby is talented!! So nice he is fixing up things for the new arrival! Hope all the materials are hypoallergenic and that there won't be any chemical smells around for the new arrival.
    Wow! You plan to go in for a race?? Good on you! Don't like hearing about the swollen ankles though :( Please be careful! Listen to your body, you have precious cargo now!
    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Congratulations on your little one! I have no idea what your relationship is with your folks, but to paraphrase Eleanor Roosevelt they can only upset you or make you feel badly if you allow them to - and from the sound of your blog entry you took the higher road and determined to be positive no matter what! That is a very difficult decision to make and an even more difficult one to execute so you should pat yourself on the back for a job well done!

    Take care
