Bah boom, bah boom, bah boom... at 150 beats per minute!! Hooray!!!!!
It was absolutely incredible to see, even though the baby is so teeny tiny and doesn't resemble a baby at all. It didn't matter because right away I saw a tiny little flicker of movement and knew right then and there that our babykins' heart was pumping away!
We had an adorably sweet sonographer who gave us hugs, coos, advice... and came bearing a peace-making gift (a Wal-Mart gift card that Matt took one look at, frowned and declared "Diapers".) It looks like she'll be our sonographer throughout the pregnancy, which is really nice.
I'm so glad Matt got to be there, although his eyes turned into saucers when the sonographer nicely explained "I'm going to insert this wand into your vagina" while placing a condom and lube on it:) I think she used the word "vag" at least a dozen times and I had to keep from laughing EVERY time. Alone I'da been fine. But with Matt around I can never keep a straight face!
So praise God, the baby is perfectly fine at this point. We'll have a follow-up to this appt. with our doctor on June 2nd to go over all the "results" but I think she pretty much told us everything today. Lucky for you guys, we don't own a scanner, so I won't confuse you with black and white photos of our blob:) If you're dying to know, google image "fetus blob" and you'll probably find an exact replica!
