Third Doctor’s appointment

On December 10th, Dan and I went down to the city to have another ultrasound done, and I was a ball of nerves once again.  At this point I was 11 weeks 2 days and I was excited to see the baby, but worried that the same thing that happened during my last pregnancy may happen again.  I was feeling a little more symptomatic this pregnancy, I was very hungry and having a bit of nausea.  I felt like I was always tired and I had had a bit of a stretching feeling in my lower abdoman (which they say are your ligamants stretching to accomodate your growing uterus) so I felt like everything was going well, but I just didn’t know, and I was getting anxiety which was not healthy for me or for the baby.  Dan, once again, was my rock, and assured me time and again that I was fine and always reminded me to think positively.  I don’t know what I would do without him, and I am grateful every day for him and his optimistic outlook on life.  He sat next to me in the ultrasound room, held my hand and made light of everything so I would calm down and relax.  As soon as the wand was on my belly and I saw the image of our baby it was like a huge weight was lifted off of my chest, and I could breath again.  It was much bigger than last time, and actually looked like a baby and we were immediately able to see the flicker of the heart and hear it beating 168 bpm, fast and strong.  We promised our Mom’s that we would text them as soon as we had any news so Dan was on that right away, and everyone was happy!

It was amazing to see the head and the body, and the arms and legs moving all over the place (Definitely its’ fathers child, can’t sit still ) Everytime the ultrasound tech would try to take a picture the baby would make a jerky movement and kind of blur the image so we got a lot of pictures.  The Dr. came in checked me again and the baby had flipped to the other side!  It was the neatest thing!! He also confirmed that everything looked great and that the baby was developing exactly as it should be. 
Another huge sigh of relief, and getting more and more excited and less and less nervous!!
