Sonogram #1

On Friday I had my first sonogram. I was so shocked. I went in being 10 weeks along, but she said I am 11 weeks, and moved up my due date to June 3. The sonographer says the baby looks perfect, but there is a small pocket of blood next to my uterus that could burst any time now and could cause bleeding. She said it is very common and will not affect the baby at all. She just wanted to make me aware in case I saw some bleeding soon.

All that aside, I was very shocked at how much I could see in this sonogram! With Jackson, my first sonogram was very early. I saw the standard gray and black blob with a flashing spot where the heart was beating. With this baby, I could see arms, legs, a profile, and he was moving like crazy! It was amazing! It hit me even more that I am actually going through this again! Obviously I knew that I was pregnant, and yes, I am getting bigger, but like I said in an earlier blog, I don't obsess over it every day like I did with Jackson because it isn't new to me and I'm just too busy to think about personal stuff on a daily basis. But now it became very real to me, and I can't imagine what another baby in our family will be like. How strange!

I'm so glad everything looks good. It's so true that with #2 and subsequent pregnancies you just don't have the time to obsess about it. With my #4 pregnancy, I had to look at the ticker on my blog to remember how far along I was! So sad. ;o)

Remember when we were like August can't come fast enough and we felt like we were prego the longest 9m ever....but we loved every minute of it - yah well this time you'll be 5m along finding out the sex....then it'll be June before you can pick out a name...then you're a proud momma of two! How exciting:) Better that it goes by fast than slow and you're miserably stressed with all you're doing! I like "nikko's" comment though...you should do one of those tickers to help you keep track:) lol

I had a friend at work who had several blood pockets. She has a perfect and healthy 2 year old now.

Glad to hear things are going well though!
