The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

7 week, 6 day appointment

We had another U/S today. It was awesome. We got to see a head, two arm buds and two leg buds. The heartbeat is 167. I am so excited!!!

However, I was wrong about one thing. This was not our graduation appointment. That is next week. But, can I tell you a secret? I am really kind of excited about that because, I am a little addicted to ultrasounds and I am thrilled that I will get to sneak in one more before I become just a regular patient. Then, my ultrasounds will be few and far between. So, I am totally enjoying getting a little peek at my baby every single week.

I called the midwife today and I left a message so I can make an appointment to see her the week after next. I can't believe this is all working out!!

Thank you God!!!

P.S. I would love to post the U/S pics.. but, I don't have a scanner. My Dad has this big, fancy one but, I don't think it is hooked up correctly because, it won't scan onto the computer. So for now.. no pics. And I have no belly pics because, Best Buy is holding my camera hostage while it gets fixed.

I didn't graduate until my 8 week mark too. And congrats on your little gummy bear!!!

I have to say that although I love u/s too, I wish I didn't get to see my little boy so much. More ultrasounds can equal a high risk pregnancy. I have to get an u/s every single week. It's a long one too, as they have to wait for him to do a set of 8 things to score. And although I get to see him everyweek, I know in the forefront of my mind it's because there is a really ~real~ chance of him suddenly dying. I don't know why I'm telling you this. I'm not trying to scare you. I'm not trying to gain sympathy. I was just struck that I had the same feeling upon leaving my RE too. Not that having the same feeling with result in anything the same either. Just that I wish to God I didn't have to have so many u/s now.

I'm sorry for posting that. I didn't mean to unload at all on you. You can delete my comment without me feeling bad about it.

I am really happy for you though - don't get me wrong!

Nancy, (((HUGS))) I would never delete one of your comments! It didn't scare me at all!!

Alicia, Yup I have more than a little bump. I can't button any of my pants anymore and I really don't like the bella band thing. I got one pair of maternity jeans and I heart them!!
