one beautiful baby girl at 7 weeks, 1day gestation (lovingly referred to as Miss Thang #2). <3
My awesome IM flew in to Charlotte on Sunday. We had a wonderful time catching up with each other. Gosh, I wish we lived closer. She is so cool and I swear that I could chat with her forever. I am a very lucky gal to be matched with someone that I like so much. :)
We woke up bright and early yesterday to get ready for the ultrasound. We made a quick pit stop at Starbucks and then headed over to the OB. Our first appointment was for the ultrasound and that is where we learned that there is a perfect little gal growing inside me. She has a heart rate of 145 and her measurements were exactly where they should be. Yay!! There was a second sac but it was empty. I have to go back for a repeat ultrasound on 8/2 (my birthday) so that the OB can check on the empty sac. They want to make sure that it doesn't affect the baby's development. Hopefully, the sac will simply absorb and everything will be right on track. Isn't she the cutest blob you have every seen? lol
BTW, we have an awesome OB practice. They are so great about being thorough with everything that they do. Their genuine interest in us and the way that they try to get to know us on a personal level is comforting. I know that they will provide the best care for us. It's so amazing to find doctors/nurses that will spend a lot of time answering questions and not rush us through appointments. Our sonographer spent a good amount of time doing the ultrasound and explaining everything on the screen. She used to work in a high risk clinic and she is extremely versed on interpreting ultrasounds. We saw a nice CNM for our first prenatal appointment and she spent 45 minutes chatting with us and checking me out. I feel really good about this practice and I can't wait to meet all of the OBs. They do not allow anyone to claim a particular doctor so we will eventually see and meet everyone there. I expect that they will all be knowledgeable and nice to work with.
