10 Little Fingers

Sometimes, you just have to listen to your heart. You need to brush aside the web of fear and let hope shine through.

Too sappy and melodramatic perhaps?

Maybe, but there are few words to describe the emotions rolling through me as we watched Bean bounce around like a nut, making it difficult for my OB to get a heart rate. But the heart fluttered so beautifully.

She did a vaginal ultrasound, so we got to see so much detail. Bean measured 2.33 cm making my date of 9wks 5 days bang on. My self-prescribed due date of Oct.15 was confirmed. I got a prescription for my nausea which I'l be picking up tomorrow. Can't wait to start feeling somewhat normal again.

The most amazing part was seeing Bean's fingers. Tiny little digits I can't even imagine being so tiny. My OB said that while we may not want to shout it to the world just yet, but things are looking really positive. We could make plans for future tests and scans. And make further appointments. Both my OB (whom I absolutely love!) and her asistant kept telling us Congratulations.

It's been a year since we first started trying to have a baby. I'm 10 weeks tomorrow. 2 more weeks and then we can share our news.

By golly, I think we've got ourselves a baby!

October is a great time to have a baby - well, except for that being hugely pregnant in the hottest part of summer thing.

Glad to hear you were able to see some fingers...in case you were wondering, his/her fingerprints are developing now.

Congratulations! I am happy happy for you.
I bet you start feeling better soon - my sickness got a lot better at 10, 10 and half weeks.
Yay! October is a great due month. One thing I have been thinking about that makes it seem not that long, is that the next time it gets really cold again, I will have a baby. Don't know if that works for where you live, but I like imagining that my pregnancy will only be as long as it is warm.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I know that moment is just magical. I am still trying to settle into the feeling of being excited, but it feels so good.

We are just about three weeks apart!

I completely love this line: "You need to brush aside the web of fear and let hope shine through." That's EXACTLY where I'm at right now.
