Today was the day that we have been waiting for for quite some time now :) Today when we woke up, we realized it was "ULTRA SOUND DAY!"
When we looked out the window this morning, it was a little disturbing...SNOW...and lots of it! I swear it wouldn't stop coming down. Had it not been warm enough, I think we would have had over a foot of snow-easily!
After school today I drank about 25 ounces of water in about 30 minutes. You have to have a full bladder for your ultra sound...
WELL WELL WELL....little did I realize that when we got there, I'd have to go to the bathroom so badly that I thought I was going to BURST...and then we had to wait an extra 20 minutes because they were running behind. The Dr. who performed the ultra sound let me go to the bathroom just a "little" bit before she began. I'm not sure what was worse. Having the pain of needing to go really badly, or going a little and having to STOP!
Anyway, the moment she began it was pure bliss (besides her pushing on my bladder continuously, only to remind me how badly I had to go)! Our little one was moving around so much. He/she was also laying very awkward! It looked like McBaby was laying/lounging on his/her side! So our Dr. couldn't get the "best" pictures, but I think she got some pretty great ones! All of McBaby's measurements came back great! Here are the 7 pictures she took of McBaby...enjoy! Oh and if you "think" you can see a little something something in one of the pictures...it's actually the umbilical cord! We avoided seeing the "gender" areas...we want to be surprised! Our Dr. still doesn't even know what we're having...that way she won't slip up, so that area was avoided all together!
After our ultra sound we ventured up to our Dr.'s appointment. Our blood work came back and everything is wonderful. McBaby is growing and healthy! We celebrated our great Dr.'s visit by going to Steve's Pizza - the best pizza place in town :)
Dad - the "flying object" is still on the ceiling-haha!
It was great to share our wonderful news and pictures with our great friends - Jason & Lisa Denzer! Of course their kids too! We just love the four of you...thanks for being so wonderful to us!
Technically tomorrow marks our "Week 18" mark, but since we were having such a great day, we decided to take our Week 18 pictures tonight! Here they are...I'm finally starting to show :) The red line on my stomach is from my tights. It was too cold to wear just a wool skirt...but hey-nothing maternity yet :)
