My First Ultrasound!

Yesterday I got a call back from the nurse because I left a message for them when i was so sick last week. She gave me a prescription for a nausea medicine that works really good. It's super expensive but I'm glad it's working. At the same time, she scheduled an appointment for me today because the doctor wanted to check and make sure everything was going okay with my pregnancy. So, this morning I went for an appointment and I had a surprise ultra-sound while I was there. :) It was wonderful! It was so nice to see our wee little one for the first time and know that everything looks great. The baby is measuring right where it's supposed to. It's 1.45 cm long and the heartrate was 154bpm. I didn't bring my camera because I wasn't expecting an ultrasound for 2 more weeks. However, I did have my cell phone with me which has a camera on it. I took a picture and a couple videos. Unfortunately, I don't know how to download them to my camera yet. Any suggestions? I have a RAZR. I have another appointment next week and one the week after that.

While I was at the Doctor's, I had the chance to ask about rollerblading and whether I should be lifting dog food bags at work. At this point, my doctor gave me the okay for both of these activities. The rollerblading will change with the coming of the 2nd trimester and the dog food...probably a bit later.

Glad your appointment went well! Also glad the medicine is working - ultrasounds are my fav appointments! Very exciting!

Glad you had your ultrasound. Too bad you aren't closer and Dan could do it for you. By the way the ginger idea is a good idea. Rita makes a ginger tea in the crock pot(pound it first flat, or slice it thin, boil it in the crock pot or tea kettle with some honey in your cup) this is supposed to be a good tea for digestion(you can buy ginger tea already in a packet, if you want also. Good health.

I am so excited for you and your little one. Isn't it so exciting to see your baby. Did you cry when you saw the heart beating? Can't wait to see the pictures if you can get them on the blog.

It was thrilling to see the baby on the monitor. I did not actually see the heart beating although I saw a bunch of lines when she measured the heartbeat. If I can get the pictures off my camera...I'll post them.
