I Need A Scanner

I definitely need a way to scan this beautiful picture in so that you can all see this.
  • At 7 weeks, 2 days, our precious little one is measuring a day ahead at 7 weeks, 3 days.
  • His or her little heart is beating away a breathtaking 145 BPM.
  • The sac looks good, the ovary cysts are shrinking, the doctor says that it all looks good.
  • It's amazing the difference that a week can make in size. Incredible.
We go back next week, Tuesday, January 22, at 2:45 PM for our 8 week scan. According to our doctor, 8 weeks is a big deal. If we are still tracking this well at 8 weeks, she is going to put our chances of loss at less than 5%. Now, look upwards at the title of this blog. I have been here before and I have been in that unlucky group. But that's rare. It shouldn't happen again.

Thank you for those prayers.

I am afraid to say how attached I am getting to the little darling. Maybe even time for a nickname. . .

Sometimes I call my preemies "Peanut Butter." Might work as an interim nickname. As in, PB is sticky and we want this baby to stick...
