For Real

I've been sick all week so it has taken me 4 days to get this posted.There is something about being pregnant that tells germs it is time to make a home in my body. This is the second time I've been sick since finding out I was pregnant just 4 weeks ago. Sneezing, coughing, stuffy/runny nose, and an ear infection have been my companions this week. I'm ready to kick them out!

I went to the doctor last Tuesday to get an ultrasound done since I was absolutely sure I wasn't eleven weeks pregnant when I went to the doctor the week before. Turns out I was right. The ultrasound of little birdie showed a strong heartbeat of 160 bpm and the forming of a head and body. We got to see he/she move a little while doing the u/s. It is so weird to see something moving around inside of you when you can't feel it.

So it turns out that I was 8 weeks 6 days pregnant when I went on Tuesday. That makes my new due date November 9, 2011. So here is our little birds first picture!

The tech thought she would be funny and make it look like twins with the picture below. :-D

So according to the technician everything looked good but I won't know more until I talk with the doctor. My next doctor appointment is on April 25th. I hate that I have to wait a month between each appointment right now. It is so loooonnnnnggg to wait.

The only thing that concerns me about the visit with the technician was that she got a shot of a cyst on my right ovary. It is probably nothing to worry about but I can't help but worry. My sister had a cyst burst on her when she was 17 and I know it caused her a lot of pain. Other than that I feel much better now that I know the baby is doing fine.

Keeping my fingers crossed til the end.
