Wednesday, May 27th, 2009 • No Comments on There Really is a Baby in There (12w0d)
I am too emotionally and physically exhausted to write a detailed blog post of my maternal fetal medicine appointment today, so I’ll save it for tomorrow. I wasn’t able to get all the testing I wanted, so I’ll need to wait for some blood work and schedule another appointment. Basically, I don’t know much more now than I did before the appointment. Frustrating, to say the least.
I did get another ultrasound (the NT scan) and got to marvel at how much the baby has developed in just a couple of weeks. He or she was wriggling around in there like crazy (and being rebellious about moving into the right position for the test). It was great to see—and to hear the heart beating at 146 beats per minute. As I said when I first saw it—I guess I really am pregnant. One of these days, the reality might sink in.
I’ll post all of the pictures later, but this one is my favorite.
