Raising a Blended Family

Our kid!!!!!!!!!*

We had our first ultrasound today, which means we finally, finally, FINALLY got to see this kid we worked so hard to make.  And here he is! (or she. or it.  whichever).



Yep. S/he looks just like a peanut, with a tail.  We’re proud mamas.  =)  Baby was measuring 8w5d, which was 3 days behind our calculation of 9w1d.  None of the 3(!) doctors in the room seemed to be at all concerned about this apparent lag though, even when we told them we were 100% sure of the date, so I am trying not to be concerned either.  Plus, baby had a nice strong heartbeat… 180!!!!!  Speaking of which… wanna see?  (Please excuse the inane commentary, lol)

Seeing as how this was my first ultrasound and all, I had to have the heartbeat pointed out to me, but once I saw it and heard it I was in awe… there were tears.  It’s just such an amazing experience, and it’s so so so soooooo relieving to know everything’s going okay in there.

And finally, since we now know everything is okay, I will go ahead and post my 9w picture here and on the belly page, even though we’re measuring behind.  Hopefully the baby will catch up!

9 week belly.

*we’re working on a blog name.  Just haven’t found the right one yet! Geesh, this part is harder than picking our the actual names was!

    YAY! That’s awesome! Don’t worry about being off a bit in your measurements. I was told that you could be off as much as like a week(?) or more for various reasons without concern.
