Just a disclaimer: Once I figure out how to hook up our scanner and use it, I will be posting pictures of my ultrasound. Until then, just imagine and white blob with a little spot in the middle. 🙂
Today, I had my first ultrasound. What they don’t tell you (until you’re pregnant) is that the first ultrasound is a vaginal ultrasound. Creeps me the heck out. But that’s a whole other story.
Since Sean JUST started his new job with Dell like, 3 days ago, he wasn’t able to take time off. Owen stayed with his friend, Luke, so I was able to go alone to the appointment. I didn’t want to have to explain to Owen what was going on anyways. Awkward.
Apparently, I have a very active baby. (Must take after Owen…) The baby is measuring 8 weeks and 2 days, and from my last period, I’m 8 weeks and 6 days. Close enough for me. They kept my due date the same (January 13….and yes, it’s a Friday.) I also got a huge tote bag filled with formula samples and coupons. A little early for that, don’t you think?
Anyways, the good news is, is that was my last appointment with my ob/gyn. I’ll be seeing my midwife from here on out in preparation for a home birth. Doctor’s offices give me the heebie jeebies. I swear, I sweat like a pig in there, too. hahaha
And as soon as Sean gets home and can figure out this scanner, I will post pictures! 🙂
PS For my sisters who love to make fun of me. Yes, I’ve already gained 6 pounds. Help me to help myself.
