Here's Looking at You, Kid (Take 2)

We got back from out trip last night (I'll write more about that another time) and showed up at the doctor's office early this morning. We were just supposed to be there for bloodwork--to confirm the pregnancy and make sure that my partner's progesterone level was high enough. I had wondered if we would also get an ultrasound, because I got one at this time with my pregnancy. The difference being that I came in for the requisite bloodwork the week before, which we were unable to do this time because of the adoption and our trip. Anyway, I wondered if they'd just go ahead and give us an ultrasound, so I was pleasantly surprised when we were escorted into the ultrasound room. Later we learned that the nurse made a mistake--she'd thought we were just there for a standard ultrasound to measure a follicle, not to confirm pregnancy. Anywho, we went in and got our first look at the next baby! Now you can see the dot that will become our second child:

Yep, that's our kid, that little black dot in the middle of the gray fuzziness. And the ultrasound tech saw the yoke sack, which means that we're past the blighted ovum state. In other words, things are looking great so far. We go back for another ultrasound next week. I didn't have a six week ultrasound with my pregnancy because that fell over Christmastime, and the doctor was on vacation. It will probably be too early to see the heartbeat next week. I'll probably just be presenting you all with a larger dot.

It was very exciting to get this ultrasound. Our first look at the new baby. It does make it more real. My partner definitely felt that way. Ella was in the room with us. I told her that it was very unusual to get to see your new brother or sister as just a dot. She didn't seem impressed.


  • She (Ella) may not have been impressed this time but I bet she will be in 8 somthing months... ~;^)

  • I wonder if she'll be impressed or pissed. I fear her response will be more along the lines of, "Who is this new creature getting all the attention?! I'm going to sit on him/her!"
