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!!!
