On August 11th, I had my first appointment with my new OB. The appointment went really well, and I was very impressed with Dr. N. I think we're going to get along just great.
Dr. N did another ultrasound so we could get a peek at the baby. I was 11 weeks and 6 days at this appointment. He has a 3d and 4d ultrasound machine in his office, so we were really able to see the baby. It was amazing!
In the photo below, you can see the baby's little ribs. On the screen, we could see each little finger and individual toes. The baby was only about 2 1/2 inches long at this point, which is just phenomenal if you think about it. God is truly amazing!
I love this shot because you can really see the baby's face. It's so cute in a weird, distorted sort of way :-). Also, you may notice in the photo what looks distinctly like a boy part. However, at this age, what we are seeing my not necessarily be a boy part. It may be the end of the spine that the body has not yet grown around. The baby's heartrate was 170 beats per minute, so still quite fast. Now that I'm a "regular" patient, I won't have another appointment until September 8th! Such a long time to wait!!!
This week, we said good-bye to the first tri... a BIG milestone. Time is really flying by!
