Ultrasound - Almost 13 Weeks

I wanted to post last night, but I was so exhausted. Plus, it was storming so we didn't think we should turn on the computer.

I went to my u/s, and the first thing the tech said was, "I see a heartbeat!! And it just did a little bounce!" She knows I've had 4 m/c, so she is very understanding and reassuring.

The baby actually looked like a baby. I've never ever been even close to this far along before. It was so neat!

According to my dates I am 12 weeks 5 days.
According to my u/s measurements I am 13 weeks 3 days.
According to my Dr.'s measurements of my abdomen with a tape measure I am almost 15 weeks.

The heartbeat ranged from 156 - 159. And I got to hear it with a doppler! First time EVER for that!!

Of course it concerned me that I'm measuring bigger than my dates, but he said it is nothing at all to worry about and that I may have a big baby. He mentioned me being tall. I am about 5'9".

He said that everything is perfect!

I'm going back in 4 weeks to find out the gender. Then 3 weeks later will be the big anatomy scan where they check the baby's organs, brain, etc. Once that is over I will breathe a big sigh of relief!!!

In the meantime, we are still working hard for Little Guy and praying praying praying for continued divine intervention!! God has already done so much. There is still hope that he will be ours to adopt. We are not giving up!

Now, I'm so very exhausted, so I think I'll go lie down. Thank you for reading, and thanks for your encouraging comments!! :)

So happy to read this! Isn't hearing the heartbeat the best sound in the world? I cried when I heard Joseph's heartbeat the first time!

Great news. I would have never guessed you were 5'9. For some reason, if I had to guess I would have guessed you were shorter, by a lot, lol. I don't know why.

...and for Little Guy, too. I can only imagine how heartwrenching an experience this must be; I know you love him very much. Wishing for the best outcome, there, as well.
