Introducing Baby EyeCanSee

Ok. So I promise my blog isn't going to turn into Baby mania.
So all you non-baby readers out there don't worry!
I couldn't however, pass up the chance
to share with all of you our first official peanut picture!

(Don't you love how they mark it"baby" so you can tell which grayish black blobby to look at :) The head is on the right, feet on the left)

Our appt Friday went well!

We went in thinking we would just get to hear the little heartbeat on the doppler.

Unless there's a problem, my OB office doesn't routinely do an ultrasound

until the 20 week visit when you can find out the gender.
Well after searching around with the microphone for a minute and not finding much,
our Doctor said not to worry,
10 weeks can still sometimes be a little too soon to pick it up...
let's just do an ultrasound instead.

Fine by us!
So a few minutes later we saw our baby up on the big screen
Moving like crazy with a strong heartbeat of 173 beats per minute!!
The little bean was even measuring 3 days ahead of schedule...
looks like we have an overachiever on our hands!!
I thought I would get all emotional,
but it was just so surreal to see it
and hear the little 'thump. thump. thump'
that for once in my life I was speechless.

okay listen....I said the same thing "I won't turn this into a baby blog!"...and while I do try to maintain my posts NOT about pregnancy--you just wait until you have this belly, and everything on your mind is baby. Believe it or not, people love hearing about it...so don't feel like you're supressing the desire to write about it--your life, your FIRST baby...its SPECIAL!

YAY! I love that first u/s picture because it seems so small, and then you'll go again in 10 weeks and have what seems like a full grown baby going on.
