So I finally got my Ultrasound today. Sticky is measuring EXACTLY 11 weeks and 4 days, Just like I estimated!!! Seriously, I really thought I was off by a few days, or a few weeks. I can't believe I was RIGHT ON!!! My kids Are Thursday babies. Conceived on and born on!! JUST WATCH! CUH-RAZY!

Due date stays July 28th. Tickers and Calendars don't need changing!

Had my midwife appointment today too. Everything went super except for she tried to draw some blood and I am a VERY TOUGH stick. Always have been! She couldn't get a vein after several tries so she just did the finger prick. It was just an iron check, and I am only a little low so she wants me to eat more iron rich foods. Other than that everything is great!

 So Excited to have a happy healthy, NON MEDICALIZED pregnancy! Pregnancy is not a sickness and I feel so great going this route!!!! She gave me some books to borrow I was intending to buy so that is great too!!

The U/S was REALLY quick, about 2 minutes. And He only gave me 1 little pic, not a very good one, where the baby looks like a monkey. :? And he let us listen to the heart rate for like 4 seconds. It was 170 bpm. :D

here's some stills I took from the video we took:

I also had my 1st appt. today. We didn't have an ultrasound, but we got to listen to the sweet whoosh of the baby's heartbeat. It was so reassuring for me to hear. So glad your appt. went well, too!
