11.5 Week Ultrasound!

Our ultrasound today was amazing! We spent about a 1/2 hour in there just watching the baby move around. When we started the baby's head was up by my head and feet by feet and then during the ultrasound it flipped and was upside down for the last half. It was so fun to watch it move it's arms and legs around and now it finally looks like a baby instead of a bean! She even took some 3d pictures which was pretty awesome.

This was one of the 3d pictures, my camera doesn't do it justice, the baby is looking right at us and the arms are on either side waving hello :-)

More ultrasounds....

Well because there have been some strange happenings and little complications with the pregnancy so far I have had lots and lots of ultrasounds (don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, I love the ultrasounds). Today we had our 5th ultrasound I believe and my mom got to come and hear the heartbeat since Rowdy had to work so that made it extra special. It actually is starting to look like a baby and less like a bean, we could see the head and body, very exciting. I looked to be around 9 weeks 2 days so that darn due date is sticking at February 7th but as long as the baby looks good thats all that matters. We have another ultrasound in 2 weeks and after that we should be going to just regular appointments. The ultrasound machine ran out of film or whatever it uses so hopefully I will get a good picture in a few weeks to post and I'm sure I will eventually get the 7 1/2 week picture up but I think its pretty much only exciting for Rowdy and I. I have been blessed with some time at home due to Dr.'s orders and tomorrow I go back 1/2 time for a week and then back to full time. Glad to have 1 more week of 1/2 time to get me almost out of the so far very unpredictable 1st trimester since I have been napping on a pretty regular basis, I'm going to miss those noon time naps but I guess I need to suck it up like the rest of the pregnant working ladies out there : -)
