1st Ultrasound!

I didn't think I was going to be able to sleep last night, but, thanks to the exhaustion of being pregnant, that wasn't an issue. I woke up a nervous wreck. Call it morning sickness. Call it nerves. Call it what you want-I thought I was going to lose it a few times. (And by "it" I mean my breakfast.). 12:45 was too late to have to wait for a first u/s. Seriously. All scenarios of what could happen ran through my head-multiple times! When we finally got to the doctor's office, I was trembling (yeah, yeah, I know I shake on a regular basis, but it was worse!). It took F-O-R-E-V-E-R for my doc to finally come in the room. I came close to passing out, and Jordan was freaking! I was really hot and just concentrated on breathing deeply. I was fine. Oh the drama! Dr. L finally came in, and got straight to the point. Right away we were able to see a little blob, a.k.a. our little monkey :) I'm so in love already! I think everyone was pleased to only see one. I've said it was 1 since the first day I got a BFP, but no one listens to me!! Call it my motherly intuition-haha! Needless to say, we are thrilled!!

When we got back from the u/s, Jordan gave me a gift he has picked out for the baby. It is a red onesie with black trim and a little bulldog on the hip. It has a matching bib and black and red booties! It is so cute! Goooo Dawgs :)

Please keep our little one in your prayers. It is still so early, but I'm trying to stay as positive as I can. After so much heartache, it's hard to look at things through rose colored glasses. I'm praying everyday for that to change! I'll have another u/s next Wednesday. At that point we should be able to see a fetal pole and possibly the heartbeat. How exciting! I'm glad we get to have another u/s so soon. I wonder if it's possible to have one every week? ;)

I leave you with the picture of our monkey. Isn't he/she cute??
