Baby B Update

I mentioned last week that I was going to the Doctor for the first time. We were so excited because Ben and Blakely got to come and we knew we were going to be able to hear the heartbeat. Once we got to the Doctors and after they examined me, she told us that my cervix was measuring 12 weeks, instead of 9 weeks like we originally thought. So she got the Doppler out so we could find the heartbeat and after 10 minutes and a look of concern on her face, she told us that she was unable to find a fetal hear beat.

I wasn't to concerned since I still felt pregnant, but the Doctor was concerned, which meant we got to have an ultrasound. Which would also give us exactly how many weeks I actually was. They could only get me in for an ultrasound two days later, which left me to build up my anxiety, and get a little nervous about the baby.

Unfortunately, Ben was unable to go with me(since he has already left), my friend Colleen came with me.

As soon as she placed the little ultrasound device on my belly we could see this little baby squirming around! Colleen started getting teary eyed which made me get teary eyed. I never got to see Blakely at such a (awkward) small stage. The ultrasound tech described this stage perfectly, "It's like a fish on dry land or a gummy bear." Which was amazing! It was so neat to be able to see that it was already growing it's legs and arms.

It was moving already! It would move both arms and then kick one leg at a time. AND it's little heart! Being about to see it's little heart beating, was amazing!

So, Baby B is doing well and moving right along! And I am not 12 weeks!

Heartbeat: 168
Weeks: 9 weeks 5 days
