Ultrasound #2

Today I went in for another OB appointment and everything went well. My doctor used the doppler to try to hear the baby's heartbeat but she was unable to find the heartbeat even after a number of tries. I wasn't too worried as I had thrown up my breakfast about 30 minutes prior so I figured Baby was just hiding like the Doctor said. Of course, until you know for sure there's that little fear in the back of your mind just wondering if everything is okay. So, I got to have another ultrasound today!!! Yipee!!! The doctor saw the baby right away and he/she was waving at us with it's little tiny arms. I absolutely loved seeing my baby again and this time I could actually see the arms, legs, heartbeat and of course the body. It was beautiful! I'm going to attempt to include two videos I took of the ultrasound today. I've never posted videos before so they might have to come later. Baby measures 2.99 cm long and has a heart rate of 164 beats/min. Enjoy!

When I find time/energy, I'll post about our visit to the Strawberry Festival last weekend. We had a lot of fun!

The first video is probably the better of the two.

Thanks for the advice for swimming! Your video was fun to watch...isn't it amazing to see them so small? And to think...there are people out there who don't consider it an actual baby yet!

I loved seeing your little one moving and kicking. Isn't it so awesome to see the little life inside of you. I couldn't wait for each ultrasound and heartbeat to make sure my baby was ok. So precious.

I am seriously speechless and so touched by this video. Pregnancy and the whole miracle of birth never ceases to take my breath away and make me super emotional. So happy for you. Thank you for sharing your video.
