I’ve been feeling much better than those initial 10-12 weeks of the fisrt trimester.
We had a surprise ultrasound last week so they could measure Baby’s heartbeat. It was nice and strong at 151 bpm and a relief to see that little heart pumping away on the screen. The technician said Baby is measuring about 7 oz at this point. In case you wondered, that’s big. (In comparison, if you read week-by-week guides on your developing baby on websites, they’ll tell you 16 weeks should be about 3.5 oz – this baby is measuring around the 18 week mark!)
Squishy and Mr. Man came with me. Squishy watched the ultrasound screen occasionally, but was more interested in what the tech was doing to Mommy’s tummy. We heard a lot of the following conversation:
Squishy: “Whadya’ do’n’?”
Us: She’s looking at the baby.”
Us: Yep – she’s checking to make sure Baby is healthy.”
Squishy: “Ohhhh…………Whadya do’n’?”
And so it went for the remainder of the appointment.
No news on boy vs. girl yet. We want to know and hoped to find out a little early, but no such luck. Now I really can’t wait for our 20 week scan!
