First Ultrasound

Had I known that Meg wouldn't remember her blood results moments after speaking to the doctor, I would have blogged hours ago...(beta ??; progesterone is holding strong at 15)

Today was our first ultrasound and I have to admit that, up until this point, I was excited, but still in total disbelief. I don't know how to explain it. We have had 4 positive pregnancy tests and several blood tests that confirmed it, but I guess I needed to see it in order to believe it.

Here is our first picture (I've been dying to post it!)...

If you're like my mom, you're probably thinking it looks like a watermelon seed, but the dark oval is the gestational sac (where the baby develops). You can also see the yolk sac (the small white circle in the upper left of the sac), which is the source of nutrients for the fetus.

All in all, Doc says everything looks perfect and it was exactly what she wanted to see. Our next appointment is Friday, September 2nd.

Time to celebrate and recreate our first date...indoor picnic with pasta, garlic bread, and salad! 

Happy Anniversary, Meg! I love you!!!


  1. Exciting isn't it! You guys didn't get to hear the heartbeat??????

    We went in for our first US the day before our 1yr wedding's the best gift we could have given each other! Happy anniversary and congrats!!!!! This is truly a miracle that we have been blessed with!

  2. Doc says we'll see the heartbeat next week (6 weeks). Can't wait for that.

    Thanks for the well wishes!!!

    UPDATE: Meg and I had chicken fingers and french fries for dinner as per her request...she also enjoyed some ice cream cake. lol, gotta love it!

  3. So adorable! I hope Meg is feeling a little better and I can't wait to hear next weeks appointment synopsis! :-)

  4. AHH! So exciting. <3 you guys!

  5. Thanks, Megan P...Meg's feeling ok..she has bouts of nausea, but nothing horrible yet...I keep telling her she's jinxing herself and that it's coming...she's obsessed with bananas!!!

    Thanks, Paff & Jen!!!
