Silly baby, just chillin

We had a nice, long ultrasound today with 2 u/s technicians as one was being trained. It was GREAT! We got to watch the baby for about 30 minutes and he/she was so active! I think I remember Carolina being very active too during our first big u/s. This baby was so funny, just chillin in the photo above with it's legs crossed and a little smirk on it's face while giving us a little wave. We got another good pic where you can actually count the fingers which was neat. Jason was thrilled that there was 5 :) All in all, good day. HR = 153bpm and everything looked good!

After a round of I.V. Fluids and I.V. Zofran I am feeling like myself again. This pregnancy has officially veered way off track. Weds night the nausea hit bad and I have been out of commission since then so today we decided after a 5lb weight loss I should get some fluids and anti-nausea meds rather than go into another work week having to take time off while still being unable to take care of Carolina. I am really glad I made this decision as I am feeling much better. Hoping this all subsides in a weeks time. I guess with this new symptom everyone is thinking boy, not just me! Hope everyone enjoyed the photos I shared in my previous post.

Another due date? Seriously?

Had another appt yesterday (took miss C with me) and we waited an hour and a half to be seen...thankfully I was well prepared with juice box, milk, books, gummies, applesauce, etc...I have learned to expect nothing but the worst in this city especially after waiting close to 2 hours for my ultrasound last week! After the long wait we got to hear the heartbeat again. All is well. Heartbeat 167bpm with the doppler. They decided I am 2 days ahead of where they originally thought? A January 6th due date. Seriously. How many times will they change my due date? Whatever. 1st week of January is about as specific as I am getting at this point as they don't have a clue! Baby healthy, mommy healthy, due date unknown :) Genetic testing up next week with more ultrasound photos!

Photos of Carolina coming too as I haven't update her photos lately and Jason has taken some gorgeous shots of her!

Ultrasound photo

So my scanner stinks and this was the best photo I could get on here. You really can't tell that it is a baby, but I would feel awful if baby number 2 didn't get the same exposure on here as baby number 1. So here you have it. My ultrasound at 9 weeks. Another ultrasound photo to follow at 12 weeks. Hoping you can at least recognize that it is a baby at that point :)

Healthy Heartbeat

Ultrasound --- CHECK!

Heartbeat - 169bpm. Baby is doing just fine. Some pictures to follow once I get the energy to scan them. I am not nearly as far as long as expected, only 9 weeks. We will have to wait on genetic testing until June 24th....We have a NEW due date of Jan 8th. Feels so much farther away than December 22 given it is a whole new year! BUT.... no complaining here, just so happy to hear a heartbeat!
