I have fallen in love! Yesterday was much more exciting than I had expected. Our appointment with Dr. Brody was at 3:15; I woke up nervous and the nerves increased through the day. I was close to being a wreck while waiting for the doctor to come in my room. If Dave hadn't of been with me, I may have fainted. I can't tell you why I was so nervous, just that I was.
I am so happy with Dr. Brody (thanks, Diana). I appreciated his professional approach with just the right amount of humor thrown in. I didn't think that we would be able to see as much as we did during the ultrasound, but I am very pleased that we did. We heard a very strong heartbeat and saw that our little baby is a little over an inch long and already has little arms and legs. All of a sudden the baby turned toward us and waved its little arms and legs, almost like it was showing off with a little dance :) I could have watched that all day long.
My guess was that we were either 7 or 8 weeks along, and I was pretty close. Yesterday we were 9 weeks, 2 days and this makes our due date November 8. It's crazy to think that by the holidays we'll have a little baby at our side. It also pleased me that Dr. Brody encouraged me to ask every question that I could. I found out that I shouldn't start showing my bump until 26 weeks, which means the one that I thought I was already developing is just bloat and extra weight I've put on. I go back in 4 weeks and he said that there is a possibility that we'll see the sex then (woohoo!), the sooner we find out the better.
