12 weeks ~ a little baby emerging!

Today was my 12 week check up. I was measuring 12 weeks 1 day but I am sticking with my original due date of Oct. 9th since I suspect it will change with each visit. The baby was screened for downs syndrome ect. and I had a few genetic tests to screen for risk for Down's, Cystic Fibrosis, ect. The heart was still beating nice and strong, about 155 beats/minute. Baby is now measuring 10.5 cm and was very active. Baby kept covering his face with his hands (I'm only saying "he" out of wishful thinking, we have no idea if it's a boy or a girl yet). It was very cute to watch.

This is my favorite picture from the ultrasound today. You can see the face, little tummy and legs. Looks like baby has made him/herself comfortable.

The ultrasound tech was really nice and gave me several shots. Here is a nice close up of the face and the ear. Baby is waving at us!

Here are a couple more good profile shots:

9 weeks!

Here is a picture of the baby at 9 weeks. Everything looked good at the appointment and the baby is healthy. The nurse told me that at about 12 weeks she'll try and listen for the heartbeat. Exciting! We could still see the heartbeat nice and strong on the ultrasound. The picture is a little blurry because of movement but the baby looks good. Our little alien... awww....

8 weeks 5 days!

Well it's almost 9 weeks now. I have been feeling super tired and crabby these past few weeks. My morning sickness is still hanging around but I feel ok if I wake up slowly and take my Zofran first thing in the morning. Usually I have to lay down for about 40 minutes after taking it before the urge to toss my cookies passes. I've been luck though, this is much milder than it was when I was pregnant with Mackenzy. Hopefully it will pass soon and food will be more appealing. Tomorrow is my 2nd doctor appointment and hopefully we'll get to hear the heartbeat! I also anticipate another ultrasound so I'll post a picture as soon as I can.

7 weeks and we have a heartbeat!

Here is the first ultrasound of our little bean. Actually he/she looks more like a little blob. But on the ultrasound we could see the heartbeat fluttering away! It was 146 beats/minute. Next time maybe we'll get to hear it. :)

We're Expecting!

It's true! We are expecting our 2nd baby! Mackenzy is convinced it will be a girl. The other day she drew a picture of Me, Daddy, Mackenzy, and a little baby wearing a dress. Mike is convinced it's a boy and I don't really know. I'd be happy with either one, but a boy of course would be great since we already have our little princess. :) Our due date is Oct. 9, 2008 and we have our first ultrasound appointment this Thursday. I'm a little nervous but will feel much better once we see the heartbeat. This week I definately feel pregnant. My nausea is rearing its ugly head! So far I've kept it under control with my Unisom/B6 combo at night and a Zofran every morning. I'll be sure to post a picture from the ultrasound!
