Today is Friday the 13th and Doug and I went to my first ultrasound. Dr. Paul wanted me to have it done to make sure it was a viable pregnancy and not a blighted ovam or whatever they call that. I had to have a full bladder and let me tell you how much harder that was pregnant. They got me right in and did the ultrasound. The technician said she couldn't tell me the results but she showed us what she saw. She showed us the uterus, the yolk sack and this little blinking spot inside that was the fetus. It looked to Doug and I that the baby had a heart beat but she said it was just too small to stay seen the whole time so it was blinking in and out. She basically said that everything looked like it should it was just really early in the pregnancy. Doug and I were so excited to see peanut for the first time. I got a little teary-eyed and Doug was very kissy afterwards. It was a good day. Especially after yesterday because I had some spotting and I was very worried. We decided that maybe we were walking a little to long starting out because we had been walking about an hour. We thought we could cut that back to a half hour for a while and build up to it.
