I guess I'd better claim my spot!
Me and my Jay. Together since November 2007.
8 week ultrasound!
1/25 First midwife appt. Everything on track! Baby heartrate 175. Here's baby's first pic!
2/24 Heard the heartbeat for a quick minute! Everything sounds normal!
3/23 "BIG" Ultrasound today! Baby is 7 oz. and measuring right on track! Fingers and toes are all accounted for! Yes! Still keeping that gender a surprise!
4/19 Heard the heartbeat loud and clear today. Weight is normal, belly measurement is normal, and cervix is closed and narrow. 19 more weeks to go!
5/21 14 weeks to go! Measuring "big" but nothing to worry about it. Everything seems to still be on track! Need to take the jelly bean test before I go back in June!
5/24 SIL, Jenna, brought us in for some 3D ultrasounds! So cool!
6/7 Met with our Pediatrician! She is great and I am glad that we see eye-to-eye on a lot of important things! Check that off the to-do list!
6/17 Another check-up and this time my mom got to come! Heartbeat sounds good as usual and I am still measuring on track...not too big and not too small!
7/2 On a 2-week schedule now for visits. Joan showed me how to feel what body parts are what. Pretty cool. Head is down and in the "ready" position!
7/19 Things are still good. Baby was kicking Joan as she tried to listen to the heartbeat.
8/2 Here we go with weekly visits in the birth month! OK...so maybe Baby V will be coming in September, but still excited to make it to August! 70% effaced! Sounds good!
8/9 Quick appointment! No new progress "down there". Baby will probably keep cooking until that due date! Officially full-term today at 37 weeks! Heartrate was normal at 120...boy??? GBS negative!
8/16 38 week appt and by-passed getting checked. Haven't had any contractions and baby still seems high. Dr. Jackie agreed and said that my labor may, statistically speaking, be like my mother's...overdue, but less than 12 hours. I'll take it
Guess I better grab my spot! I need to figure out how exactly to pimp this thing out.. hmm... off work tomorrow.. will post new pics!
Jan. 15th about 10 weeks - Saw our little peanut and heard the heartbeat! Picture below.
Feb. 19th - 15wks and 3 days. Doctor found the heartbeat right away!
Mar. 12th - IT'S A BOY!!!!
April 9th - Heartbeat sounded good and strong! Pretty routine appt, which of course is good.
