Well little one, we did it. You won the race of life. You are now 7w 5d inside mommy's tummy and I will be the first to admit that the last 3 weeks have been anything but dull.
My first Dr's appointment was Jan.21st and Dr Polon couldn't find you at all She could see that there was a pregnancy starting, but you had proven yourself a pro at the game of hide and seek.
Today was my second appointment and as she was starting the ultrasound, I was too afraid to look, for fear of what I may (or may not) have seen. So Dr P had me listen since I didn't want to look. The sound of your heart beating was the most beautiful and joyous sound, my little one! I started to cry the moment I heard it. Your heartrate today, 143.. Code for " I love you". How symbolic.
As soon as I heard your heart, I immediately turned, wiped my tears, and looked anxiously at you on the screen. I saw you in your little 1.34 cm splendor with your little bitty heart beating.
Baby, I knew that I loved you from the moment I knew you were there, but today, I fell in love with you.
________________________________________________________________________________________________ On a side note, based on my urinalysis, Dr Polon said I am not showing any of the preliminary signs of GD this time.. HOORAY!!! I go back to the Dr's on March 4th at 11am to see Dr Polons partner, Dr Morey. Both are women and very very personable and professional. Since I started going there in June, I keep wondering what I would ever do without them. Such a great practice I go to!
