I had my first ob appointment yessterday. I was nervous (shocking, I know) for a few reasons. For one, when am I not? Also, the husband was not going to be with me. So, my thoughts go to something being wrong, and I will be alone to get the news. Also, I had a nightmare a couple weeks ago that they couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler.

Guess what? She couldn't find the heartbeat. She told me before she tried that she usually doesn't even attempt this early because it can cause extra worry until the next appointment. I love my dr., because she ordered an u/s to ease my mind. So, I waited with the thoughts of my freakin nightmare going through my mind.

I got to have my first ever belly ultrasound. Goodbye dildocam! Tears may have fallen when I saw our babe kicking and rolling on the screen, heart beating away like crazy. It took her a minute to be able to get the heartrate (162) because s/he wouldn't be still for a second. Bonus, I got to see the u/s on a big screen. So, may I introduce you to our babe at 10.5 weeks:
I just noticed it looks like babe is giving us all the finger for disturbing him. Just when I thought I couldn't love the photo any more, he shows a personality trait from me.


  1. I got chills! What a beautiful sight! great OB btw!

  2. What a beautiful photo! And I love the little "eff you". LOL So happy for you!

  3. funnily enough that was the first thing I saw {the finger} love it. So glad he/she was so active!!!! YAY!

  4. I love that!!! Too funny. I'm assuming that pic is going in the baby book. You should be sure and show it at his/her wedding reception along with the toddler potty pictures!

  5. The baby is already so beautiful, so awesome!!

  6. LMAO gotta love getting the finger. Too cute!

  7. Yay Amber! What an awesome picture I just want to cry from happiness for you!
