2nd Ultrasound

WE SAW AND HEARD THE HEARTBEAT!!! YAY!!! Sorry for yelling, I'm just so excited. Bambino's (that's what we're calling it, Russy didn't like Mahershalalhashbaz Ashkenaz) heart was beating away at 122 bpm. Normal is between 120 and 180, so it's the low side of normal, but it's still normal. It's measuring .674 cm which is 6 weeks and 4 days. If you go by my LMP (which I'm not anymore!), I should be 6 weeks and 6 days so we are much closer than we were last week and I'm happy with that. Estimated Due Date is April 19th. I have some wonderful pictures of Bambino (or in it's case, the blob) and my gorgeous uterus. I'll be scanning them and posting them soon.

YAY FOR BAMBINO!!!

WOO HOO!!! That's so awesome! I'm sure you were nervous after the last ultrasound came back a bit small, so I'm glad to see that the little guy caught up! I'm sooooo nervous about seeing a h/b on Tuesday...but I don't have any reason to suspect that I won't, so I just have to keep my positive face on. YAAAAAY!

I was soooo nervous. Russ said that I was talking really fast and my face was red. Those are two things that happen when I get super nervous (babbling and hives). It's really not pretty! HA!

Congratulations. Rumor is that girls have lower heartbeats.
