12 weeks 4 days. 192 days to go.
I couldn’t update yesterday because we were too busy sharing the news with family and friends that I am pregnant. It was such a surreal act. Letting people know what we have kept a secret for what feels like an eternity. The more people I talked to, the more I opened up to about our infertility struggles. It was amazingly, weirdly, nice.
So the NT scan was awesome. Baby was being uncooperative for the technician but I was perfectly ok with that. E and I got to watch our little baby wiggle, stretch, kick, hit and arch for over 20 minutes while they were trying to get a good picture. Pure heaven. It’s amazing that something so tiny looks so much like a baby already and is moving SO much. We even saw a tiny little baby hand. Truly unbelievable. His/her heartbeat was good at 162bpm and the NT scan was good, everything was within normal range.
We met with the doctor who poked my belly, asked how I was doing and was happy that I am down 2lbs from my 9week appointment. After that, went to the lab for some bloodwork and scheduled my next appointment 4 weeks from now.
I can’t believe we are telling people. It’s so surreal!
