1/3 of the way there...
Well, by whatever standard one wants to count the ending of the first trimester - twelve weeks or thirteen - I am officially 1/3 of the way through this pregnancy! What a nice little milestone. The possibility of a miscarriage drops significantly and I am grateful that all seems to sound and look good so far. It's hard to believe that our baby will be here in six months. However, it's also hard to believe that January is six months away. Where does the time go?
We were not expecting to have an ultrasound until about weeks 16-20 when we found out the gender of the baby. However, there was a bit of a "scare" and I went in a couple of days before my 12-week check up to make sure everything was a-okay. They did a doppler to find the heart beat which was nice and stong in the 150's. Then just to make sure nothing else was wrong they went ahead and did an ultrasound and we got an extra little peek in on Baby Caughey. I think this photo of the baby is fun because his/her little hands are right in front of his/her face. It's a normal position but I joked that he/she didn't want to have his/her picture taken... just like his/her daddy! Although, Husband is pretty good about letting me take his photo these days. :)
So, there's an update on our little one. All is fine and the baby is growing well and seems to be pretty strong heartbeat wise. Our next ultrasound will be at 16-weeks and our doctor will try to see the gender of the baby. If she cannot tell at that point they will run the test again at 18-weeks. Then I am guessing we will not see Baby much until he/she arrives on the scene here in the Valley of the Sun.
