I had my first appointment and ultrasound on Monday. I absolutely love our doctor! He had actually heard of Elk Grove and knew we were the Thundering Herd. And at some point I put my hands to my head and did our antlers. Crazy! (You know what I'm talking about, if you're from there.)
The ultrasound was so great! It was such a relief to see the baby and see it move (a lot). It's great to know that it's alive and doing well. It measured 2.5".
During the ultrasound, I kept saying, "This is so weird.....that's so trippy!", and Tyler just kept laughing at me. But it's really weird to see it moving on the screen and know that that little thing is moving inside of you at the same time. Just the idea that there's actually a baby in me is weird.
I keep calling the baby It, but Tyler's come to name the baby Festus (and has told me it's name is not It) until we find out if it's a boy or a girl.
I tried taking pictures of me and my growing belly, by myself, but they didn't turn out so well. I'll probably have Tyler help me tonight.
Here's our ultrasound at 13 weeks. The head is on the left with the belly and feet poking up on the right. Yes, it looks like our kid has penguin feet, but from another angle we were able to see that it isn't so. We actually saw it crossing it's ankles...pretty cute... like it was just lounging inside.
