Our sweet baby is doing so well!!!! Thank you over and over for all of the well wishes and prayers you have sent our way. The baby is measuring 7 weeks 4 days, which is just right and the precious heartbeat has gotten so fast and strong!!! It was 164 today!!!
My doctor is a dream come true. He is so very wonderful. We were at his satellite office today, which as it turns out, is not that far away and quite near Travis's office. Since the office is soooo small (as compared to the big city main office), the doctor did the ultrasound HIMSELF! Which meant I could SEE the screen and he could talk us through it. And we could snag a video with our camera. (see below)
Since I went in for an early appointment today, I managed to snag one extra week with Dr. Wonderful before I head off to a regular OB. And I will definitely go to his little office again! He is so caring and understanding and never makes me feel silly or crazy when I get worried -- or when he has to squeeze me in between appointments on a Friday.
He also said the spotting does not appear to be baby-related, but probably just irritation from the progesterone, etc. He said I do not have to take it easy -- so Emma and I are so headed to Target this afternoon. I've hardly left the house all week!
On the way home we grabbed a quick bite to eat--and I really celebrated with a cup of Sprite! haha. Oh yeah, it was a big day.
Here is a video of our little baby. (Pause the music at the bottom of my blog so you can hear the video.) At the beginning of the video, the doc is joking about how he only lets you hear the heartbeat twice, since I was asking for a third time. Then you can hear a wonderful, strong heartbeat for a bit. It comes and goes a little, but as he explains that is only because of my breathing and slight movements of the ultrasound. At the end he starts talking about my uterus..haha...so if you don't want to hear that -- beware! But I don't know how to edit the clip. ;)
We also came home with some cute little pictures. I saw baby feet today, y'all!
This is the milestone we so hoped for when I was pregnant over the summer. There aren't really words to express how joyfully happy I am right now.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Ephesians 3:20,21
