February 24, 2010 we had our first appointment with the new doctor, place, environment. I was pretty pleased to see that it wasn't too far from home and had a good energy to it. Everything was nice and orderly and they even let Jude come into the little room with me with no questions asked. Everything went as usual. We heard baby's hearbeat and it was about 153 bpm, which was normal for baby right now. We then found out that baby was going to get his/her picture taken for the first time!!! Once we went into the ultrasound room, we let the lady in there know that we didn't want to know the sex. (*TEAR*) lol. In my culture, we are not suppose to find out (yet there are some anxious to know). Plus it was my moms orders to both me and Jude. lol. Plus I think it will be more surprising for everyone!
Anyway, the ultrasound went quick, they measured the head and the stomach to see if baby was as old as Jude and I thought he/she was based on the information I gave. And we were right! (So the due date still stands 8-8-10). Here are the pics that they gave us. :0)
For me, it was shocking! lol. I actually have a living person inside of me. :0) And to see the picture of him/her only validated it. Jude had his sleeve over his mouth the whole time. I don't think he knew I was paying attention (but I was!). But the pictures came out perfect. As you can see in the first and second one, baby has its hands over the head. Then in the third, baby puts the hand down. I'm amazed at how distinct the pictures are. The next time I go back I have a full ultrasound, so, I'm hoping I get the 4D ultrasound so we can really see baby!.
Of course we showed everyone! My mom printed hers out and my dad too. They are so excited! Jude sent a pic to his mom and she was happy also. I think he/she has my nose. (what do you think?)
As for me, I'm doin' well. Got over a little cold from going out home and feel a lot better! I haven't gained much weight. I thought I did, but my weight is still the same as ever!... I feel bigger and Jude says I grew too. haha I don't know if I should take that as a compliment or not. But the lady at the clinic said that at this point its ok if I don't gain any weight. Baby is just taking in what is around her/him. I've been eating a lot though, or maybe not a lot, but more frequently. I try not to eat junk. But icecream is still my fav! I have to cut down though :0(
Other than that all is well!
Soooo until next time readers.. TAKE CARE
