Ultrasound Appointment




We had our first ultrasound this morning and saw our little nugget's heartbeat beating strong! It was amazing. The baby's measuring at 6 weeks, not the 8 weeks that we think we are, so we're going back in a few weeks for another ultrasound to make sure it's growing properly and everything's fine. We kept track of when we had intercourse and where in my cycle we were and it's impossible that it's only 6 weeks. It could possibly be 7 weeks, but that's as low as it can get. The numbers just don't add up right. So, once we have the second ultrasound we'll know better what's going on. For right now, I'll continue on as if we're at 8 weeks and then backtrack if I have to in a few weeks when we have more information.

I won't be doing the weekly update and pic until we know what week we're on because I don't want to get too ahead of myself. This week he'd be the size of a raspberry, and he's definitely not, according to our sonogram. He was only measuring 4.5 mm, not the 11 we expected him to be.

This due date change could also be why I've been feeling so normal (i.e., no morning sickness, etc). The dr said that symptoms like that don't usually set in until 7 to 9 weeks.

Love the little peanut picture.

He's a "nugget" now. We've changed his name. He sort of resembles a chicken nugget at this point so I think it suits him well.

Hey, they changed my due date with Jolie...I thought I was due in February and then she measured a little smaller, and pushed me back a few weeks. She came out over 9 pounds...she caught up. Relax, and stop waiting for the sickness to come. It sucks!!!!! You may have an easy pregnancy, we hope. And stop talking about INTERCOURSE, you are freaking me out. Love you. Cortney

Cort, I have a few other things I could call it if you'd like, but you already complained about your father reading this and I don't think he'd appreciate some of the other terms I could use. :-)

Do your boobs still hurt?

Heather, they don't hurt as bad as they did. I don't need to sleep in a bra anymore, at least. They're about 85% back to normal, for now at least. My dr said they'll grow again and can change up to two cup sizes larger. Good lord...

That's kind of scary, because you already have big boobies.

Heather again.
