2nd Appointment was Today....

My mom went with me today since Brian is saving his vacation time for when the baby arrives. I have been so nervous all week about this day. In the back of my mind, I really felt like something was wrong. I got into the exam room, and my OB tries to find the heartbeat with the Doppler. She couldn't find it (although she only spent about 30 seconds looking), but said she heard the baby kick. She took us into the u/s room and tried an abdominal u/s first. We could see the baby, but not very clearly. So bring on the trans vag. Baby's heart rate was 180 bpm. It wasn't very cooperative with moving around, but my OB got a measurement. Baby is measuring 3 days ahead. I am not going to adjust my due date yet though. She checked my cervix and ovaries. I have a 2 cm cyst on my right ovary. She wasn't too worried about that though. Then went back to check out the baby and it must have woken up because we got to see it's little legs and arms move! Was truly amazing.

My NT scan is next Friday! I can't wait. Then have my next OB appt June 29th. I have to do the 1 hour glucose test at that one... PLEASE let me pass!!! Here is a profile pic from today....
