So since the ultrasound this afternoon "Boogie Wonderland" has been playing through my head. Huge relief to see the heart beat immediately and the little bub is growing nicely!
Although we are 9wks6days, bub is measuring at 10wks2days, checking in at 33mm. For some weird reason I keep calling the baby "he", I've had 3-4 dreams of a baby boy, and one last week of a girl, who knows but it's difficult staying gender neutral while chatting about the little one (lo).
LO was dancing up a storm, the hands were waving around their face, and legs were all over the place, I figure that lo has picked up daddies natural dancing abilities. It was so surreal watching lo dance all around on the screen, and that heart beat sound can not be beaten. We recorded the hb, and plan on breaking the news to both sets of parents this weekend!
For my parents, I'm planning on showing them the pictures of the fruit and asking them if they can see the link, then playing the hb and showing the u/s pic - all via skype. DH will call and tell his parents - I am more excited about his aunts and grandmas reaction.
I have a strained relationship with my MIL and SIL, last time we announced to them SIL first response was "are you happy about it?" to DH, and my MIL managed a weak "congratulations" followed by "it better be a girl"... Telling them makes me very anxious.
We had already planned to visit his aunts/grandma for xmas 2012, so we plan to breaking the news as we hate to be rude, but we are bringing someone with us next xmas... I think they will love it :)
Now we are released from the RE to my doctor - it seems odd, but Dr. H gave me a big hug and was all smiley and asked us to come back and visit with lo.
I've never gotten to this stage before, and I'm delighted, I will take each day as it comes, and from here on it will be all positivity and happiness (with occasional bouts of anxiety but quickly covered up). We are doing the NT blood work and getting the scan set for within the next month, I'm still not certain on the amnio so we will wait and see how the NT results are first.
