On May 13, we had our first ultrasound. I was almost 12 weeks pregnant and we got a pretty great view of Peanut! Here's a pulled back view...
And here's a close up. Peanut has a lot of room in there and was moving around and showing off for all of us. So cute! No true signs yet of what the sex will be (too early) but so far the doctors have ruled out any abnormalities and say that Peanut is looking great and growing well. Whew!
Our next ultrasound us scheduled for June 27 so we are hoping to determine Peanut's sex then. Tutu will be bringing Big Brother Noah to the appointment so he can get a peek at this "Peanut" we have been talking about for the last few months.
I don't really have to know the baby's sex but my dear husband does not like surprises and just HAS to know. When I was pregnant with Big Brother Noah, we could not get a perfect look at his "parts" during our ultrasound at 20 weeks and Jeff couldn't stand it. He actually asked the tech if it would help if I stood up and jumped around and laid back down. The tech and I both gave him a look and we were sort of OK with not knowing. Well I was. It wasn't until about two weeks before Noah was born that we actually found out he was going to be a boy (due to a nervous substitute OB/GYN who had me monitored). I almost told her it was OK to not tell me but then I thought of my husband and how sad he would be if I passed on the opportunity to know. So I gave in and she told me, "it's a boy!"
So things are going along well! I actually fell 100% better than I did a few weeks ago (no more aversion to food...yeah!). So I'm settling into the groove of the second trimester. I know I promised you all a belly shot. I'll get Jeff to take one this week so you can all see how big I am getting.
More updates to come...
