9 weeks!

I know, I know-I've been a bad blogger. I just really haven't had that much going on, and every time I would go to write a post, I would find something better to take a nap! I had a stomach bug last week, and believe me, stomach bug on top of morning sickness does not equal a fun time. Thankfully, that has passed, and I'm actually feeling much better! It was a beautiful weekend, so I think being able to get out in the sun helped a lot. Yay for Spring weather!!

I have discovered that I feel yuckier on mornings when I have to get up and go to work (Coincidence? I think not!). Actually, on the weekends, I can take my time getting up, have breakfast in bed, and just chill out until I'm ready to face the day. It's great! Workdays are so rushed in the morning, and I just don't think that my body enjoys being jolted out of bed and forced to get going so quickly. Oh well, I'll deal!

We got to see our little monkey again this morning!! Today at the RE was very weird. They put me in one room to pee in a cup, but said not to undress. Then, they sent me to another room for my u/s. So, I had a little bit of a wait in between. When the doc started the u/s, he was completely silent. He moved the wand around for what seemed like forever and I just sat there, my heart pounding. Jordan could see the screen (I couldn't at this point) and his face was not a happy one. I was freaking out on the inside. FINALLY, the RE said, your bladder has filled up and is blocking everything. Empty it, and we'll try again. Just a couple minutes later, with an empty bladder, we saw the baby immediately and all looked well! Can we say HEART ATTACK?! (I also may have a bladder infection. They'll call me on Wednesday with test results. Crap! My bladder is on my bad side right now!!!)

So, baby looked good and measured about 1 inch. We could see it wiggling around slightly, which is pretty cool! Heart rate was 175 bpm. I tried to scan the pic in earlier, but my scanner was acting weird. I'll try again tomorrow!
