I went in today for a little live baby check. I'd been feeling ok about things until Saturday or so...by then I was starting to get pretty anxious about the pregnancy again (just because it had been about a week since we'd seen the baby, not because anything was "wrong").
So today for the first time, I had an abdominal ultrasound.
Baby is still alive!!
Was sleeping at first, but when the OB turned on the doppler to check the heartbeat, this seemed to wake him/her up (interesting because I don't think the baby can hear yet, but it's obviously disturbing in some way). Once it woke up we could see its little arms and legs waving around.
All looks good!
Here's a little peek. Don't be alarmed that the baby looks like Pinocchio. My OB assured me that that was its hand up by its mouth, not a giant wooden nose.
Will and I are trying to let it sink a little. We are pregnant! We are still pregnant. Trying to hold that maybe things are going to be ok. That there is no indication of any problem. That maybe, just maybe we are finally going to be parents, come this fall.
One step at a time. But boy, that would be amazing.
