So Refreshing!

On Friday I went in for my first official prenatal appointment. It's funny because they schedule these appointments to take so long because they assume they are going to have to go over everything with you. Well when it's your 6th pregnancy it's a bit redundant! I kind of feel like I know the in's and out's of it. Needless to say I spent a bunch of time in the waiting room. It was okay though because in the end I got to see this cute little baby again!

It just totally amazes me how much development is going on in there! The baby looks great! The PA spent a good amount of time looking at the baby. I got to see the heart beating and she got some great angles of the baby. The baby is measuring at 9 wks 3 days.

This picture is cool to me because it's like you are looking straight at the baby and it's laying down on it back. You see the two darker spots on the top...those the two sections of the brain! The little arms are right below the head and the legs are at the bottom. When this shot was in motion I got to see the baby moving it's little hands....thinks evil villain in a movie rubbing his hands together and going, "Mahaaa!" I also got to see the baby kicking and moving it's whole body doing a happy dance. It's such a nice relief to know that everything is progressing well. My next appointment is going to be a little further out so I know I will be ready to see the baby again by that time. Prayer for my anxiety level would be greatly appreciated!  

Michael took a picture of me on Saturday night. I'm 9 wks 4 days. Pooching out already...thankfully my jeans are still fitting, but I'm sure it won't be long and the maternity clothes bin will be coming out. Just for my sanity though I think I'm going to hold off until I'm out of the first trimester!
