a Sigh of Relief

There's arms... and legs.... and they waved at us....

It was awesome...

I'm 8w5d, measured one day ahead - hb is 181 (I told hubby the old wives' tale that it means its a girl... he said "aw hell no...")

But we're giddy.   Cuz this is the farthest we've ever successfully gotten...

There's a baby in there. 

With arms and legs that move.

I'm in love...

And now I'll finally wrap the baby books we got for IL's to open tomorrow night with the above picture tucked in... I can't freaking wait*

*I'm also slightly nervous - E had a baby brother who passed away before 3 years old from (I think) leukemia... And guess whose birthday my EDD falls directly on?

E is saying MIL will freak out, in a GOOD way... I envision her crying, and me crying (cuz I cry at EVERYTHING now, including commercials for Campells soup, what with the happy little family tucked away with tomato soup and grilled cheese on a snowy day...)

**also another "cool" fact for anyone who thinks of things like this - my O date was a few days right before E's grandfather passed, so I'm thinking conception/implantation happened damn near the same day...

Ok enough of the UnsolvedMysteries thing going on here... I'm gonna go stare some more at the arms and legs...



  1. Look at that baby!!! So happy for y'all!!

  2. Such a cute baby! :D congratulations on a great ultrasound!

  3. Stopping by from ICLW. What a cute little bean you have there!
