After quite an annoying and emotional night, we finally got to see our little alien Newt! =D I've been looking at ultrasound pictures for a couple weeks now, and I have to say, our baby's lookin' pretty big!! =D The tech measured the baby to be 7 weeks and 6 days old, but I think I'll stick to my original 9 weeks, 5 days (using the due date calculators doctors have, I'm 10 weeks ...lol, my dating is kinda in the middle!)
I had hoped to see the heartbeat (fetal pole), but as badly as this night was going, I wasn't going to push my luck. The tech didn't say anything was wrong and he never sounded worried while he was jabbing me with that stupid 'dildo'. So I trust that baby is doing excellently and is happy not to be poked at anymore!
I also started a slideshow on www.rockyou.com "showcasing" my slowly growing belly. As the weeks go by I'll be adding new slides. I think it will be neat to see the progression. I can already see a difference between the 4 week picture and the 9 week! It's pretty cool!! So here it is!
