Baby's Got Moves!

Today was an amazing day.

The heartbeat was clear as day, at a perfect 172 BPM. The baby measured exactly one week ahead of last time, at 9 week, 3 days (a tiny bit ahead of schedule).

But the most amazing thing of all is that our baby did something that we have never gotten to see before. Our baby moved. And not just a tiny flutter that you had to be watching for - our little one was dancing! I thought it even looked as if it was trying to suck its tiny little hand. My husband and I were in complete awe of our child - after all, neither one of us can dance well, look what our little one can do at only a few weeks old!

After looking around at everything else, the technician let us have one more long look at the baby, who obliged us by looking as if it gave a little "Hey, guys!" wave!

We are so in love.

And now, just so you can see for yourself how cute this little one is. . .

What a beautiful baby! It's just amazing at how quickly they grow! (and it's fun to see yours and know that mine will be that size in another couple weeks!)

Congrats Katie!

Look at how that tiny baby fits so perfectly and looks so comfortable!

I love it!! What a fantastic picture. You need to replace the one in the frame with this one. Much cuter.

*Sigh.*

I think I might be just a smidge in love too.

You know what - it's funny that you should say that about trying to get a sooner appt, but my ovary actually DOES hurt. I've been suspecting a cyst that's a leftover from the many follicles that Follistim gave me.

Whenever I bend over or stretch I can feel it sort of "pull" if that makes any sense. I'm thinking about calling the RE. Partly because I want to know if it's a cyst and partly (ok, mostly) because I want an ultrasound sooner. Ugh! I can't decide.

I'm glad to be back - but I've missed so much; it's crazy what all can happen to my ladies in just a few days. I was so happy to see so much good news though.

SO cute.

I was shocked when I saw my uterine residents wobble around the other day. It's a very good sign for both of us, I've been told.
