First ultrasound revealed ...


... one little bean with a strong heartbeat of 122bpm! :) Everything about the little one was measuring right on target--6 wks 3 days! I was a giant ball of stress and assumed I'd burst into tears at any moment, but didn't. Honestly I was in complete shock that we weren't getting bad news! I have been accustomed to hearing bad news, but I'm hoping that this is the first of much more great news to come! K seemed as cool as a cucumber and J was his normal silly self showing up just as K was getting wanded. I had my eyes glued to the screen for a flicker and as soon as I saw it I felt a sense of relief. When the u/s tech pointed the h/b out to us J whispered that he thinks its a boy! We go for a 2nd u/s in 2wks.

SharingaDream said...

Yeah, 1 little bean! I'm glad all is well and now the real fun begins...MOM, your a MOM, your expecting a baby, how awesome is that!

P.S. If you chicken out on the brazillian, I don't blame you, but you can still do the bikini and it's not that bad. It hurts but won't bruise you up like a braz can.
