That's In Me?!

Here is my 11 week belly picture. It will have to do since I can't scan the sonograms (read on...)

So today I whitnessed the most extrodinary thing I have ever seen in my life. Now, bear with me here because its not going to be nearly as cool reading about it as it was actually BEING there...
I had my doctor visit today and I knew they were going to do an ultrasound, but I had no idea of what I would soon see! The last time the did one I was a little over 7 weeks and it looked like a lima bean (see facebook for pics). This time, it was a BABY!!!! I was incredible!!!! He/she was wiggling all around and kicking! At first the baby had its little hands up by his ears, but then he started waving!!! (I know I refer to baby Martin as a him as I think most do when discussing a baby whose sex isn't known yet. We still don't know what we're having, but to save the time of typing he/she, Baby Martin will be referred to as he/him. Oh, by the way, I did have a dream last night that I went to the docotor and found out it was a girl... foreshadowing? We'll soon see!) So anyway, after greeting his new mommie and the ultrasound tech, he proceeded to stick his legs straight up in the air and kick and wiggle all around. It was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced. To know that all that action is happening inside me and I can't even feel anything! Crazy! I absolutely can't wait to feel our little miracle!!!
So after the ultrasound and some tears (I got to hear the heartbeat for the first time and of course I cried because Adam wasn't there), I got to speak to the doctor. Everything looks good! I am supposed to be 12 weeks on Friday, but from the measurments today the baby looks 13 weeks. Big baby? most of you know, Adam and I are fairly small people. Wouldn't it be hilarious for us to make some huge 9 pound baby?! Wait, no, that wouldn't be funny at all... I just thought about the fact that that huge baby would have to come out of me. Scratch all of the above...
I tried to scan pictures of the sonogram, but the printer isn't cooperating since it is out of ink. Thats all it wants to tell me about. I don't care you don't have juice! I'm not trying to print anything! I just want you to take my image and put it on the computer... you can't do that without ink? Loser.
Well, of course I will continue to keep everyone posted on baby! We should be finding out the sex at my next visit! YAY!

I am glad you got your comments box working. Glad to hear things are going a little better for you. Started my blog again. I get bored in the summer even though summer school starts Monday. I am usually good at guessing the sex of the baby. Not sure about yours yet. I will let you know what I think before your next visit. Take care!
