And now for our featured presentation.

Baby is looking good so far. Measuring a tiny bit (2 days) behind the fertility friend and LMP estimated due date. I believed I was 12 weeks 4 days and according to this am 12 weeks 2 days. So needless to say no big discrepancy, just means due date is February 4th rather then 2nd, and the Dr. said when he puts it in as 31 day cycles it matches perfectly, not to mention I never ovulate on day 14 or even 16, I am a late ovulator. Anyways, I did do the Maternal Serum screen because the Dr. felt those results along with the ulrasound are going to really be our first line of defense in terms or looking at absolutely everything, not just things like Downs or Spina Bifida but also plancenta function overall. Made enough sense to me to move ahead with it. I will be re-tested tommorow for clotting factors and meet next week to discuss the results and decide if we move ahead with Heparin or not. With those results, I think if I need it I will feel more confident in my decision. 

Ok off to eat ma dinner πŸ™‚ Enjoy staring at my pretty baby πŸ™‚

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. So cute!!!
    The placenta function stuff was our reason for going ahead with the MSS test too. I didn’t even know about that until this time- it’s good to have all the info.

  2. Aaawww, look at that little peanut πŸ™‚

  3. Sweet! I’m so happy for you!

  6. omg so adorable, its so amaIng seeing them on the screen! im glas things are goin well πŸ™‚

  7. Aw, yay. I am so excited for you. Your doctor sounds awesome, too.

    • Oh and I have a question for you. I am measuring at 12w4d today, which puts my due date at January 30 according to my doctor and all the tickers I’ve looked at. So wouldn’t your due date be February 1 if you are 12w2d today? Or do you count differently? I’m just curious how you figure it. =)

      • Yes they are calculating it with a 32 day cycle cause I am not a 28 day girl, so they add 3 days. Baby is measuring that exactly. I think that is it, cause all other calendars and tickers put me due Feb 1st, but the ultrasound confirmed the 4th.

      • you should totally have this baby on my birthday! shoot for february 1st! lol.

  8. AWWW he/she really looks like a baby already!! So cute!

  9. And what a beautiful baby!!! I love the 12 week u/s. It always shows the full baby and they look like a human for the first time. It’s so incredibly sweet. Awww… I’m glad everything’s going well.

  10. awww HI BABY!!!!
    your doctor sounds great… it’s great that you were able to really discuss the benefits with your doc and make an informed choice to go ahead with the test, rather than be subjected to a test you weren’t sure about. that is so awesome!

  11. Are those cute little dancing legs I see? Awww! Yay!

    • They are, baby was getting down at this point of the ultrasound.

      • Caspian was quite the kicker and danced around at his early ultrasound too. Zinnia was very calm during hers! I wonder if that means anything.

      • Liam was a mover and a shaker when he was in utero, and still /is/ now. I also swore he never slept as a fetus, and he was over a year old before he started sleeping through the night. So yeah, I think it means something. πŸ™‚

      • This little bean was still as can be, I was worried, thank goodness for the heartbeat, then the Dr. shook my belly and it took off dancing all over. Phew!
        I think it was having a post lunch nap and then was rudely awaken and confused. πŸ™‚
