a slowwwww return :)

Well, here it is a week later, and I only posted that one little thing. Or a BIG thing, depending on how you look at it. ;)

Today was my first ultrasound at the hospital, AKA my first chance to see that there is indeed a little moving person who is quite alive inside of me!!! It was lovely, and reassured me quite a bit -- and now I have a lovely grainy picture of our beautiful baby-to-be.

Highlights of the exam included:
1. Seeing that little heart flashing on the screen
2. Watching our baby move its hands around by its face
3. Finding out that everything is indeed okay and little baby looks good for its age!! I am so thankful!!

Low points of the exam included:
1. Being made to fill up my bladder an hour before the appointment time, and then having to wait an extra half hour before it even started. My little tiny bladder is still recovering -- owww!!
2. Having a pretty crabby and condescending ultrasound technician. However, she miraculously seemed to recover from her bad mood when she found out I worked at this hospital. :) :)
3. Jamie wasn't allowed to come in until the very end. What's up with that??

Anyways, I was so so happy to see our little baby. You don't even know how emotional it made me. I have to go get some blood drawn tomorrow, and then see the doctor on Friday to see how much weight I've gained this trimester (!!!), and hopefully to hear the baby's heartbeat.

I am soooooooooo excited!!!
