Alien.Baby

I had my 12 Week Ultrasound today. Although the Genetic Blood Testing came back normal, an U/S is still used to detect card abnormalities, spin bifida and to detect fluid on the neck which may be an indicator of Down Syndrome.  Everything looked great!  Hallelujah!

It’s amazing how much more focused I am on your health more than I was with Reeve. That’s not to say I didn’t care (I DID) I just think I was more focused on BEING PREGNANT….this pregnancy is so different mentally.  I don’t see a bump so I don’t really feel pregnant. Sure, I’m tired and was nauseous, but until I hear that heartbeat at a doctor’s appointment or see the U/S I forget there is even a baby in there.

You looked great in there. All cozy with one leg bent and the other stretched out. Your arms waved and covered your face. You have 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 ears and eyes and a VERY visible Penis!  Ahem…..

I didn’t expect to tear up at seeing you on that monitor again. I’m still quite shocked you are even in there. 🙂

You were sucking your thumb and sitting Criss Cross Applesauce and waving your hands all over the place. It was amazing, how just 3 years later, the detail on the machine was so much more clear! You are 2.5 inches long!

Today I bought a Summer Sausage (the food I craved the most with Reeve) and had to stop myself from eating the whole thing. Kirk laughs b/c I never ever ever buy those unless I’m pregnant.

It was great to see your little Alien Face and I can’t wait to hold you in my arms
